Format of Asian name for author field
I'm thinking of making my book available for globalREACH distribution but has a query about how my name should be written in the book.
I'm Asian and my name is in the "Lastname Firstname" format. However, in the requirements for distribution, it's stated that the author name should follow what's keyed into the Lulu Wizard to match the metadata provided. The Lulu Wizard uses the "Firstname Lastname" format.
I would prefer to use my original name format, but to ensure that the book meets the print book distribution requirements, does it mean I need to change all instances of my name (eg in title, copyright, about the author pages etc) to follow the "Firstname Lastname" format?
I've sent an email to Lulu Support a few days ago but have yet to receive any reply, so decided to drop a message in the user forum to see if anyone has encountered such an issue and have it answered.
