Obtain Lulu ISBN before uploading PDF?
Hi Lulu community!
I am brand new to this whole deal and working on the final revisions of my book (softcover, 8.5 x 11, full color, retail distribution). I am using the template Lulu provides for this format and on the copyright page, it has a spot for the ISBN. However, going through the wizard, the ISBN is only available (I think) after I finish the cover, which is after I upload the content to create the print-ready PDF.
Can I obtain Lulu's free ISBN prior to uploading for the print-ready version so I can include it in the final PDF?
