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.

Changing file size...

I am unhappy with the size of my print book. I published a book earlier that was 8.5'"x5.5" and would like the new book to be the landscape of this size. Is that possible?

    To quote portrait you would say 5.5 x 8.5, not the other way around.


    Landsacpe orientation is only available for photo books.

  • We have a 9x7 landscape paperback option. You can find it on the Create page under Premium Paperback

    Under Premium Paperback I can only see 6 x 9, three versions of 8.5 x 11 and square.

    How would one get to 9 x 7 landscape format?

  • If you go to Create > Print Book, select Premium, and scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see all customization options. 9x7 is available for black & white on white and full color on white.
