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.

Fixing errors in my manuscript

I downloaded the ePub and was attempting to revise my manuscript after seeing some formatting issues. However, the errors in the ePub are not apparent in my manuscript. For example, in the ePub there will be a line break that isn't in my manuscript (like a sentence being incorrectly broken over two lines). How do I go about revising the manuscript? Thanks in advance.


  • You can "merge with previous" to remove the  page breaks that shouldn't be there. There are always discrepancies between the epub and the Word mansucript. They simply require a little tweaking. Be sure to "generate toc from headings" after each change.

  • I always use the "Show Nonprinting Characters" view when I am editing. You will be able to see hard returns, extra spaces, section breaks etc. in the manuscript.
