Rejected for Distribution through Lulu - Now What?
I published a 776-page hardcover book on Lulu fine without an ISBN because it was within the 800-page limit and it looked great; however, when I decided to sell it everywhere and include an ISBN, Lulu’s wizard rejected my book because it was more than the 740-page maximum limit required for distribution. Is there any way I can still publish through Lulu and somehow have an ISBN too if I absolutely must have this hardcover book be 776 pages? I’ve published all of my books through Lulu for the last decade and would hate to work with any other publisher. All I can think to maybe do is buy my own ISBN and apply it myself but still publish through Lulu. Is that possible? Do I have any options?
