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.


I want to have my book copyrighted and I don't know what setting to put it at- it is an ebook.

So many choices! I want it to be protected to the fullest extent without paying for the copyright. What setting mustI mark it? What is a custom license? Is it standard domain license?


I hold all rights. No one reproduces my work unless asked for. 


  • Standard Copyright. It's one of the options there.


    (although people can still copy portions of your work for critical review)

  • I believe you have asked this question already, but you can go through the Library of Congress and also get extra protection. It's inexpensive and worth it. And like one of the other posters stated, some of your work can be copied and used for critical review; but your work can not be copied and placed in another persons work and sold as their own. Then that becomes plagiarism.
