I want to publish an ebook into the Lulu.com marketplace.
How long does quality assurance and any other review process take for ebooks to get approved into the Lulu.com market?

Thank you! I've scoured the internet for hours to try to find the answer and just kept finding other's questions about how long it takes to get to a specific retail store. So glad I finally decided to post my question here.
Just to verify: Right after I submit my ebook to Lulu.com, it becomes available to the Lulu.com ebookstore practically immediately? No 24 hour delay or so?

wondering, I revised my print book and it's finally available on Lulu and Amazon. (yay!) the available download, however, is of an older version. Is there a simple (hahaha!) way to update the download? mine is a downloadable PDF, not a proper eBook, which is all I need right now.
the download (revision 1): http://www.lulu.com/shop/amy-marash/cancer-is-so-f
the paperback on Lulu (revision 8): http://www.lulu.com/shop/amy-marash/cancer-is-so-f

Since the link between a printed book and a download was discontinued several months ago you must now create a new PDF for the download.
Your download is now an eBook PDF as opposed to an eBook EPUB.
Just find the project for the PDF in your My Lulu, My Projects and revise the project to use the new PDF.
You don't need to actually upload it as the PDF will be in your My Lulu, My Files area.

thanks Ken. I understand that it's a download, not an eBook EPUB. I'm good with that.
Can you explain here how to revise the download project using my newest PDFs? My project isn't one PDF, it's 68 PDFs, one for each page because it's an art book.
I see my projects and I can see my files, but I don't know how to specify which files the download version should use.
Actually, it looks as if the download version and the print version are the same, but when I purchased the download this week as a test, it gave me an old, unrevised version.
inquiring minds are confused!
