Note: If you want to create an eBook that can be sold on retail sites other than the Lulu Bookstore, you must convert your eBook to EPUB format.
Multiple Files - You may upload multiple files in any supported format to be converted into your PDF eBook. During conversion, the files will be assembled into a single PDF file in the order they are listed in the Project Files list.
PDF - If you upload DOC, DOCX, RTF, images, or multiple files for conversion to PDF format, you must select the dimensions in which your original manuscript is formatted to preserve your original layout and formatting.
Think of the eBook marketing image as the eBook’s “cover.” It is the image shoppers see when browsing online for eBooks and on their eReader’s “bookshelf” when they purchase and download your work.
When creating and editing your marketing image, you should design the image to capture a shopper’s attention. The art and text should be clear, crisp, and easily read when viewed as a thumbnail.
The marketing image consists only of the front cover art, which should include the book title and author name. Unlike print books, there is no back cover or dust jacket flaps on an eBook cover that can be used to provide author information or a synopsis of your work. Therefore the marketing image could be the first, and last, impression a shopper has of your work.
The Marketing Image must be created to the following specifications:
Dimensions: At least 612 x 792 pixels (8.5” x 11” or 21.59 cm x 27.94 cm)
Resolution: 72dpi or higher to provide a clear image when viewed in multiple sizes
