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.


  • I have already seen one, and all I can say is, you need to ask what we think before you take them off Direct and slap an ISBN on them. It's now too late, really.

  • My advice would be to read more and to join a writing group.

  • And do a lot more research. Never publish facts that are not facts just because you think they are.

  • I surely would work harder on those covers.


    I also would not include color art in a POD book unless it is absolutely necessary to do so. Ten dollars is much too much to pay for a book of only twenty pages.


    And speaking of the visual nature of your books, you also need to take more care with the typography. Take a look at traditional books and emulate them. As it is, the text of your "Big Book" is almost unreadable....or at least unpleasantly so. The "Lil' Book" is only marginally better. Again, use a traditionally published commercial book as a model. For instance, look at how paragraphing is handled.
