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.

Selling the Story

My book is currently in print for the proof copy. If it all goes as planned, I was wanting to get about 20 copies for family and friends, privately. But now I'm wondering about selling my story. I have made reference to a couple of songs in my story and was wondering if I needed to have permission in order to get copyrights and prepare to sell? I wouldn't think so, but was wondering where that line is drawn.

    It's not unusual to mention the names of songs in writing, some artists may even welcome that, but lyrics are very copyright, although a line or two from a song should be OK, but it's often best to state who it is by and that it is their copyright, often on your copyright page. But if in doubt you can always try to ask the artists. Most have their own site or Facebook page.

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