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.

In fairness, after having critiqued several book covers on these forums, I thought I should put mine up for critique.
The attached files are of the layout I am sending to the graphic artists that will be making the design for the finalized cover for publication. I am handing off the wheel to them as profesionals in the very specific book cover artistry field. Personally I think they would stand up as cover art but I would prefer, for these first books at least, to get the advice of a professional in the field. Just as I am using a professional editor. Once I have these three out and understand the things to watch for, I may try to completely self publish should I be unable to find a respectable agent or traditional publisher.
FYI I don't feel any loss of creativity from this. I am hoping to become an author, not an editor, a proofreader or a cover artist though I will learn these side skills as best I can to reach the goal I strive for.
