We're aware of an issue with converting some DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF files to EPUB through our Ebook Wizard.

At this time, we're investigating the problem and looking for a solution.

If you've encountered this issue while converting your file, we suggest attempting to create and upload an EPUB directly to our system.

While there are a number of EPUB conversion options, Calibre (Download Here) has shown the best results for creating an EPUB for the Lulu system. Please review their extensive Help resources (Found Here) to create an EPUB 2 that our system can validate.

We've also created this Forum Thread. Post questions here and we'll do our best to respond and assist.

Genuine offer of free help

Hi all,


After writing two books and formatting my father's book for self-publishing (all done through Lulu), I've come to realise that I actually enjoy formatting the books as much as writing them.


As such, I'd like to offer my services of formatting books for all who either don't know how or just simply don't like it.


I know that it's not something that everyone enjoys and can be a bit of a drag if you just want to get your book out there.


Let me know if anyone would like to take me up on the offer, I'm just looking to work with others to realise a dream of seeing their work published.


I'm not charging at all so don't worry about that, and I'm not looking to claim any rights or anything either.

    I just love the publishing process too and wish I could do that all day long!


    Good luck, Matt. I'm sure you will get many responses. Make sure your private messaging is enabled.

    It's not always wise to add your email address to a forum posting. It often just means you will get extra spam. As Maggie suggests, it better to ask people to PM you, or as I suggested, create a website.  Smiley Happy
