Kane Hughes | 5 comments Okay, so I don't know where to go yet. I tried importing my book from lulu.com and itunes but it fails to import. I've tried looking it up but apparently the book isn't in any databases. But it can be bought at lulu.com, itunes, and barnes and noble if that helps, I can paste links.

Maybe someone could help add my book.

Kane Hughes | 5 comments It works! Thank you, I appreciate it. I was getting frustrated trying to figure it out myself without being a librarian.

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments I got them - since Lulu is the publisher I took the images from there.

HC - you added the ISBN13 to ISBN10 slot so it truncated
Authors are added as listed on cover of the book and authors with initials should have . after the initial

Hc | 43 comments Yeah i was double checking those and was goin to fix but you already did, thanks :)
authors AND the isbn..

Kane Hughes | 5 comments Okay, I clicked "Is this you?" to set up my author profile. Thanks for the help. I had no idea what I was doing when trying to import.

Ry Mas | 1 comments I am having a similar problem. Each attempt to import has resulted in failure. Here is the link to the lulu.com page

Thank you,

Kim | 604 comments There is no ISBN for that book, Ry, that's why it won't import.

"The page must include ISBNs. We cannot import books from pages that only show titles and authors."

I added your book manually. You can verify the data here:

You being an author, it would probably be a good idea to join the 'Author Program' so you can take control of your profile. How this is done you can read here:
