If you were starting from scratch and never published on Lulu before, what would you have done differently right from the get go when you started writing your book in order to get it published on Lulu? Please be as detailed as possible. Thanks!

Not really about writing the book, but I wish I had chosen from the start to design my own book covers instead of using the templates. Mine aren't great, but they look better than the templates do and they don't take too long to design. I actually enjoy the artistic side of doing them.

1) set the paper size on your word processor to the book paper size you will use for your book.
2) if you want distribution check first that that paper size is acceptable for distribution.

I agree with Peter May, about making sure the page sizes match, but it's hard because you've never done it before, and you have no idea how it'll look until you see the "Print-Ready". One thing, I would also add to that is. . .When you do get to download & preview your "Print-Ready". . .Preview the entire thing!!! Don't think just because things line up right in the beginning, that it's automatically lined up through the rest of the book. It took me 5 revisions, and major headaches & frustrations to get it right! Good luck!!
