I was just about to finish creating the book cover but realised I'd forgotten about the spine. When I went back to it, I couldn't seem to click into a text box. Is this something Lulu does automatically by just adding the title and author name?
Yes, Lulu add the title and author to the spine. You can however change the font size when you create your cover. Click on text and then the spine.
If you are unable to edit the spine text, it is likely that your book does not include the minimum number of pages. Your book must have at least 80 pages for the spine to be wide enough to print text.
Well that really does explain that as my children's book is only 42 pages. In the meantime, I will have a look at the youtube video as I think that's a good idea for people too. Many thanks guys.
