Free Ebooks In Global Distribution

We're almost ready to introduce the option to list your ebook for free through Global Distribution! You've always been able to give away your ebook through the Lulu Bookstore, but soon you'll be able to reach a broader audience with your free ebooks.

Buy Buttons

We're working to create an awesome way to embed your book on your website, social media profile, and basically anywhere on the web: Buy Buttons! Once released, you'll be able to copy the Buy Button code and paste it into the code for your website (much like embedding a social post or YouTube video). The Buy Button will display your book thumbnail, title, and a link to purchase the book from the Lulu Bookstore.

Improved Categorization

Make your book easier for readers to find with improved categorization. During the publishing process, you'll have the opportunity to assign a category for buyers on the Lulu bookstore as well as up to 3 BISAC categories for retail shoppers. We also can apply numerous keywords to your book, further helping searchers find you!



We made a ton of updates to the Lulu Bookstore. We didn’t forget about reviews either, they just didn’t migrate over from our old site very well. All your reviews, both star reviews and written reviews, are still present in our database.

And now your readers can add new reviews to your bookstore listing! New reviews will appear alongside your existing reviews on your product page in the Lulu Bookstore.

Order Lookup

Want to quickly lookup processing and shipping information about a recent order? We added Order Lookup for all users so you can do just that!

From the Lulu home screen, the person icon in the upper right corner contains the Order Lookup link. Using your order number and email address, you can see your order information even without creating a registered Lulu account.

Canva Cover Creation

We're preparing a brand new way to create your cover using Canva's design tools!

The Canva Cover Designer will feature all the elements and templates Canva offers. Paired with a custom template including your front cover, spine, and back cover, you'll have the power to design your cover all while publishing your book.
