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.

re-using an old cover

I am creating a print book. It is just a second edition (added a few pages, corrected some errors, moved some stuff around, etc.) of my earlier book that I created and printed on Lulu. I have uploaded the PDF with the inside of the new book. I'd like to use the same exact cover. How can I tell Lulu simply to use the same cover from the earlier project for the new book?  (I suspect I could have used  "revise" on the old version, but now that I have a new PDF in place, can I get hold of the old cover files?)


  • If it's a new project you need a new ISBN, so same cover, different barcode on back. Reupload new PDF or jpeg.


    Same project, just proceed past the cover.

  • It is possible you will find the files you need in My Files from a previous Project, and you can access that directly from a Project Wizard.

    Myself and my friend combined know everything there is to know, but he's not here.
