Lulu.com – Number 1 in Ebooks

Team Lulu Blog Header

2011 was an exciting year for independent publishing – new technology, devices and formats are changing the way people create and consume content. By far the stand out this year happened in the eBooks space. Creators published a stunning 115,517 new eBooks on Lulu.com in 2011, up 22% over 2010.

The surge in eBooks published has helped make Lulu the #1 source of independent content on the iBookstore(SM) and Nook Bookstore with 60,000+ titles available in these channels right now. This number is growing rapidly every day thanks to Lulu’s continued commitment to developing the best eBook publishing tools available.

With 10 years of experience helping over 1.1 million creators in 200+ countries and territories bring their content to the world, we have grown our eBook catalogue to a whopping 620,000 titles.  Your content is making a difference in the world of publishing and Lulu is proud to be your partner.

While eBooks are clearly gaining strength in numbers, the future of eBooks is still being defined, with Lulu investing heavily in that future. For instance right now we are hard at work paving the way for the next generation of eBooks. Please stay tuned for exciting updates as we embark on this next chapter in independent publishing. And next week, we’ll take a look at where print books fit into the mix.

  2. It may have been a great year with Creators publishing a stunning 115,517 but how many of those were down to the short story competition at the expense of support to existing customers.
    I’m still waiting for response to a request for help from December and now to one from last week.
    Lulu’s EPUB QA are far helpful and certainly not responsive. I often wonder if they just employ if anyone at all YTS herberts.

    1. Hi Ken,
      We got just over 2,000 submissions to the Lulu Short Story Contest so around 2%. Sorry to hear about your case – what is your 7 digit case number? I’ll make sure support gets to it ASAP.
