Our printers are currently working through record volume for the current academic year. This has, in some cases, caused print times to be extended beyond our regular expectations. Our printers have been working additional shifts and are steadily catching up. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your patience.
We’re bringing the site down for maintenance tonight.
Lulu.com, Lulu xPress, and Lulu Jr. will go offline at 12:01 AM on Thursday, September 20. We expect this maintenance to last about six (6) hours, until 06:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. (05:01 AM to 11:00 AM in London and 02:01 PM to 8:00 PM in Sydney, Australia).

Is there a way to offer a pre-orders? My next book will be launched in February, but I would like to offer a way to pre-order the book. Is that possible?


  • I don't believe that the site will allow you to pre-order, but you could have pre-readers email their names / addresses to you, and then you could order on the first day of issue for each of them. How they would pay you would be a concern. They could snail-mail a preorder to your PO box, with check or money order; alternatively, you could bill each of them with delivery and let them pay net-15.

    You could also require payment by paypal on all pre-orders by email; that would work also.  

    Just some suggestions. I haven't tried any of these things.

  • thank you! I had thought of that, so I think I am on the right path!
