How do I provide a preview of my work?

Lulu automatically generates previews for newly published books and revisions (except for Lulu Studio™ products).


Note: When you chose a new type of preview, you lose your old preview. Make sure you have a backup of your existing custom preview before experimenting, so you can reinstate it if you wish.

  1. Click the "View or Customize your book" link in the last step of the publishing wizard
    or click the "View book preview" in your project page to see your book preview.
  2. Click the "Customize preview" link above the preview.
  3. Select your options according to the descriptions in "Do I have control over my book preview?"

Note: If you published your book before April 11, 2006, Lulu did not generate a preview. If you previously uploaded a book preview, it has not changed. If you would like to generate a new book preview, follow the directions above. If you create a new book preview and decide you don't like it, you may remove it and revert to your old, previously uploaded preview.
