iPadContest_BlogBannerThe time to get in on the gold rush for ePub books has never been better.  From now until March 22, 2010, simply publish an ePub version of your book, and you’ll be automatically eligible to win one of three Apple iPads.  Yep, that’s right – just create an ePub book and you could score a brand new iPad…on us.

Never published an ePub version of your book before?  No worries.  Here are 2 ways you can get your book into ePub and get yourself in the running:

  1. Do-it-Yourself
  2. Let Us Do it For You

We’ll notify the three winners by April 3, 2010 via the email associated with their Lulu user account.   Unfortunately, because this is only a US site promotion, only US residents are eligible.  But don’t worry – we have a few things up our sleeve for everyone else…so be sure to stay tuned!  To see more rules our lawyers are making abide by, check out the disclaimer section below.

Good luck everyone!


No purchase necessary.  Prize is a 32GB Wi-Fi enabled Apple iPad. Three (3) winners will be drawn at random, and notified via email by April 3, 2010.  Winners must provide a US address to Lulu within 10 days of notification to redeem their prize. In order to be eligible for the iPad giveaway, you must either publish an eBook in ePub format, or purchase an ePub conversion service between 3/12/10 and 3/22/10.  Upon ePub publication or ePub service purchase, you will be automatically registered for the iPad giveaway.  ePub formatted books created before or after said dates are not eligible.  Creating an ePub version of your book will not guarantee distribution on 3rd party external e-readers.  Promotion is open to individuals who are Lulu registered users, and who are legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia only.  Your odds of winning depend on the number of US authors who publish ePub formats, or purchase an ePub conversion service during the contest period.   Employees, contractors, directors, and officers of Lulu, its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, immediate family members thereof, and those living in the same domicile therewith are not eligible. Lulu reserves the right to make all decisions on entrants’ eligibility, in its sole discretion.  Lulu reserves the right to change or revoke this offer at anytime.  Void where prohibited.
