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.

Trying to distribute print book but wont go through

Hi

I am trying to get the global reach program for my print book The Mimic Octopus, but every time I click on the button to do so, it just reloads the same page. I am trying to order a proof copy but i cannot get through to that stage. Unless it has something to do with the number of pages of the book which is 34.

regards
jack.

    34 should be enough. What is your binding, paper type? Did you add or take an ISBN?

    There are a few glitches on Lulu recently. But not everything can have an ISBN. Double check on Create if yours can.

    Myself and my friend combined know everything there is to know, but he's not here.

    I got an ISBN from lulu. It is size A5. My other books that were A5 were able to go through. Not sure if it is a glitch.

    There used to be times when a Wizard action did not seem to happen, but if you log off and return, one often found that it had done anyway!

  • It was an issue on our end. I don't know the details, but my understanding is that we had some selective distribution issues due to last week's site update.
    I told they rolled back the update, which should have fixed the issue.
    If you still are seeing the page refresh, let me know and I'll have someone look into your specific book.

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply. I tried it there (Went into manage and clicked on get globalReach Free) but it just reloads the same page.
  • I asked someone on our distribution team to check this out. She pushed your project through manually. You should be in GlobalReach now and just need to order/approve a proof.

    Let me know if there are any further hold ups!

    Hi

    Thanks. That worked. Just ordered a proof edition there now.
