Published book doesn't appear in Lulu search or in the spotlight page

I published an illustrated children's book for someone but that book doesn't show up in the lulu search and it doesn't show up in that author's spotlight page either. Why is this happening?


The book is called Blacky Rinus (author Nicole Chartrand). It was published on Feb 24th, 2016. Here is the link to the book:


  • none of my books are now appearing on my spotlight.


    there was a bug in the upload system yesterday and i would say this is another bug that they will correct tommorow 

  • We're having a search issue today, and our site is currently re-indexing and any books that are not appearing in search should by tomorrow.



  • All of my books are gone from my Spotlight as well. It says, "This author has not published anything." Hopefully by tomorrow it works itself out.


    Also, has anyone heard when they were going to fix the video issue on the Spotlight page? I asked about a year ago and it is still not working.

  • The spotlight/search issue should be resolved, but if you notice any issues lingering, be sure to mention them and we can look into it on a case by case basis.


    Inserting a video on your spotlight from Youtube requires a bit of doing, as the new Youtube embed codes don't work well with our spotlight pages. Here's the instructions for inserting a video:


    To get the old YouTube embed code:

    1. Copy the 11 Digit Video ID for the Youtube video URL (example:

    2. Insert the Code into both locations in this HTML code:

    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" 


    name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param 

    name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed 


    type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" 



    3. Copy and Paste the HTML code onto the Lulu Author Spotlight.
