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.

Metadata code for series, volume number?

I've been trying to get an e-book of mine approved for the national markets through Lulu for over a month. I kept getting the 'metadata mismatch' generic emails from Lulu which are frustrating and not very helpful. I have experience with code and can handle manually putting in any metadata I may need to. Right now, I use Sigil and check the metadata file source...

The e-book in question is part of a series and is the first book. I have the text on the cover, "The White Musketeer" (title) and below it, "Part of The Libertas League" (series). A "1" sits to the left of the title (book number in series).

I think Lulu has been rejecting my changes because I haven't specified the series text or the 1 in the metadata.

Lulu's 'top 10 reasons your e-book is rejected' article doesn't address this particular circumstance. And I can't find any Google solution to this situation, either.

Has anyone dealt with this and solved it? If so, what did you have to do?
Would I need to make sure my Lulu title is "1: The White Musketeer - Part of The Libertas League" and match the metadata title as "1: The White Musketeer - Part of The Libertas League"? I'm hoping there's another solution, as all of that is technically not the title, but I would like to be able to include, somehow, the number and series info.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
