E books E pub verses Kindle

Hello

I have created several paperback books on Lulu. I do wish that when e books are created at the beginning it should state that any title must either be E PUB on lulu OR Kindle on Amazon or any other platform. You cannot have on BOTH. This causes great confusion. You will find in the agreements that you  automatically sign in either Lulu.com or Amazon!

Wether or not people call ther book different things on each site to get around this i dont know!

Please be specific the e book authors!

Thank you

Hello Artpoetrysuehill

You can create an EPUB on Lulu and distribute it to the Kindle Bookstore. We do the EPUB > MOBI conversion for you as part of our distribution service.

 

As to having your book on both platforms, that is not a problem, unless you already have your book Kindle. Amazon is not keen on having duplicate versions of eBooks on their site. Hence the pop-up box asking if your books is currently available for purchase when you choose the Kindle distribution option.

 

I hope this clears up any confusion.
