Also, they never sold a single copy and that is not my fault.
But Lulu do not sell books. We do, with the aid of Lulu's tools and packages plus our own marketing, mainly our own. So how is it not your fault?
It's the way Lulu was structured before.
How are things different now?
I am looking forward to seeing if any of the print sells, since none of my titles have sold on Lulu for over two years.
YOU have to market them.
Questions about Ebooks:
I just published my sixth book on Lulu, and I am curious about the new Ebook publishing.
1) I'm having difficulty starting my sixth ebook because I had to delete the frist attempt and start again. As a result, the ISBN I own and am associating with the book is still listed somwhere in the Lulu database and I cannot complete my ebook publish because a warning claims that the ISBN is associated with another book already listed (that listing has been deleted). Perhaps the deletion takes some length of time to really clear the system???
2) I see that my first five books which had pdf downloads associated with them have been converted to Ebook (Epub) format downloads now. Where are those books listed online besides Lulu? The Ibook store? Barnes & Noble? Where else?
Anyway, please help with my new ebook ISBN issue and help with some clarification.

Those 'converted' downloads are not listed anywhere but Lulu and are in fact just the same PDFs relabled and detached from the book. They are not epubs. Most of us have deleted ours.
But next time please use a New posting. not just tag on to an existing one.
I see that my first five books published here have had their pdf download version converted to ePub format. If I provide the ISBNs to you for these new publishes, can they be listed on Amazon, Ibookstore and Barnes and Noble?
I've looked and see that they are not listed on any of these sites so far. Do you need my books' ISBN number in order to do this? The numbers were associated with the accounts and they were also in the artwork, but I could provide them seperately, if need be.

PS- Plus, the book I published a year ago (ID $: 11594351) is not yet listed on Amazon.com. Do these things take a looooong time or something? Or do I need to request it to occur?
I don't know what you mean by "Tag On". The ISBN I am associating with my book is my ISBN that I have registered for this book. Do I need a seperate ISBN for the Ebook publish? That seems extreme, but let me know if that is the case.
If you had PDF download versions of your books they have been detached from the printed version and called e-books, but that does not mean they are epubs, have a look to check.
If you want your e-books distributed you have to create them as epubs with ISBNs.
