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.

"This title does not meet Lulu's capitalization requirements. Click here to review these requirements."

The problem is that tyhe title DOES meet the requirements, and I can't move any further through the process. Any ideas anybody?

    The Alternative Is To Capitalize Every Word.

    It is not quite that straightforward. These words should only be capitalized if they are the first or last word of the title:
