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.

We’re bringing the site down for maintenance tonight.
Lulu.com, Lulu xPress, and Lulu Jr. will go offline at 12:01 AM on Thursday, October 25. We expect this maintenance to last about six (6) hours, until 06:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. (05:01 AM to 11:00 AM in London and 02:01 PM to 8:00 PM in Sydney, Australia).

We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you plan accordingly.

My own text already on my own design

Hi I'm trying to create an ebook and I already have a cover design for it...


Problem is my design already has my own text on it in the font I wanted originally:

My book cover


I've tried clearing the default text out of the edit bars when trying to finish the cover design but that doesn't work. Also nothing happens when I try to change the colors of the default text LuLu provides...in fact it doesn't let me edit anything at all.


Is there a way I can just publish my ebook with my full cover design as shown above without LuLu's text?
