Log into your Lulu account and go to My Lulu > My Projects. Select either the extendedREACH OR globalREACH Distribution package. Please Note: Unfortunately, it is not possible to add both extendedREACH and globalREACH to the same project. You can, however, create duplicate projects with different ISBNs to which you can select different distribution packages. By doing so you can be assured there will be no possibility of submitting incorrect information to ISBN agencies and retailers.
Log into your Lulu account and purchase the most recently published version of your book from either the Lulu Marketplace or from your My Lulu > My Projects page. This will serve as your proof copy.
After receiving and carefully reviewing the proof copy of your book, you can return to the project page for the title and
