Great to hear from you, Belle!
I think you've hit the nail on the head, there. Oh dear, please forgive the cliche ...
You've been submitting to the bloggers I hope?
I'm not sure what your budget is. You might like to consider these:
1. Trade shows: If you join the IPA (Independent Publishers Association) you can put your books into trade shows like the library shows and even the LBF or Frankfurt, for relatively low cost (less than $100) - I will be going this route myself.
2. Try your local libraries to see if you can persuade the librarian to stock it.

It really is tough out there though. Who did you use to get your books published?

Best wishes

Lightning Source makes a lot of sense. Citiria prints with them too; how else could we publish in the UK? It would be impossible. You have in-house book design? We have a part time graphics person and a part time marketing guy, I do the cover layouts and internals with Indesign. Pretty hard work running a small press, isnt it?!
Citiria is looking for new MSS in SF, modern fantasy, and war memoir/fiction.
