EPUB Conversion: Final Check Before Publishing

Glenn_LuluGlenn_Lulu Author

Before you release your remarkable new work to your eager fans, take one last look to make sure you have done all of the following:

  • You have all the necessary components to publish and distribute your eBook – a properly formatted EPUB, an ISBN, cover art, and complete and accurate metadata.
  • You have tested your EPUB to make sure it opens, every link works, and the images are top quality.
  • If you plan to sell your eBook through our retail distribution partners, please review our eBook retail distribution requirements and ensure your content meets all requirements.
  • Once we receive your eBook, our Quality Assurance team will confirm your work meets all distribution requirements. If it does, your title will be passed along to our retail partners, who will reconfirm your work meets their standards. When your work passes this final inspection, it will be queued for release on the retailer’s site. Be prepared for this step by reviewing the list of Top 10 Reasons your eBook was Rejected.


Now take a deep breath, and pat yourself on the back. You’ve taken a big step towards selling more books and reaching more readers than ever before! We look forward to your continued success on Lulu.com and our network of retail channels.
