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.

Pen names

Is there anything on lulu about how to publish with a pen name? I have published thus far under my name, but am thinking about publishing some under a pen name? Any info?

  • You can use any name you like. I have published 5 books under a pen name with no problems whatsoever.

  • I publish under two pen names. Create a second account with a different e-mail address. When Lulu asks for your name, enter the pseudonym you want to publish with. When you set up your billing and royalty payment info, use your real name.

    I wanted to publish my situational comedy under the pen-name "Aneurin Teapot", but everybody said it was even more ridiculous than Potet. 

  • I usually call my pens things like Pilot, Bic, Pentel, or Write Bro.s, but I suppose there's nothing wrong with calling them Charlie.

     

    Oh, right. So you can put a different name on each project if you like. I alternate between two names, depending on the content of my books. As a rule, fiction is under one and non-fiction under the other. Just put the Pen Name into the author's box in the first screen on the wizard, below the Title.

  • Many famous writers use a pen name and some use many and are often only famous as one of those names and never their real name.

    Some use them to get around exclusive contract arrangements because they will be under a single name, so they will write othet things for other publishers under another name.

    Some in the media write many things for the same magazine or newspaper, often in the same week, and the publications head them as different writers to make it look as if they have more staff!

     

    All that really matters is that you can prove you are the writer if need be, and who the payments are made to.  Smiley Tongue

    In the days when it was 'not done' for females to write books they often published under male names.
