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.

How do I calculate how many pages I need in a Hardcover book?

I see in the Make A Book section, for a Hard cover, that it sets a price for per 24-page book. So if I'm starting from scratch, how do I know how many pages are in my book?


or ... when I upload my manuscript, does it calculate it from there?



  • The tool will calculate the total based on the file you upload. The 24 page count you see on the Create page is a minimum, and you can enter an estimated count on that page to see an approximate price for printing.
