    I joined Wattpad within a day of getting the email from Lulu. I am not sure if it was/is worth it to be honest. I have not yet joined the EBook revolution with all its curious file formats, so was disappointed to find that Wattpad does not accept PDFs, and what’s more, the file limit is 2mb. For many of us on Lulu we can generate 2mb in our deepest sleep so we cannot get our entire work on Wattpad due to this strangely low limit. In other ways it is a nice site, and for those with either their work in the new / newish ebook formats of no more than 2mb per file I am sure it will be great, but for the rest of us, it is rather sadly not really of use to us. Is this just a partner or does Bob / Lulu own this thing down to the last washer? If the former, then maybe discussions need to take place for the owners to introduce more file formats including PDF, and increase the limit of any book file upload to far more than 2mb. If the latter, then I would ask the Lulu team involved to look into this. Cheers. J

  2. I joined but all I see is a bunch of fanfic by teenage girls. Not impressed.

  3. John,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Lulu owns neither the last washer nor bolt on the Wattpad engine. So to answer your question . . . it is the former. Wattpad is simply a Lulu partner. In regards to the 2mb file size, the author must upload chapters individually in order for them not to appear as one giant chapter — hence the small file size. We’ll certainly pass along your feedback to Wattpad. We know they’ll be happy to hear from Lulu authors.

  4. HELLO:
    I am having a time trying to submit any of my works and enter contests. Your site is saying my email already exist but I can’t remember my password. I am a published author (The Spiritual Rollercoaster). My contract has expired and I would much rather self publish. My other manuscripts has been crying for years to get out there and hopefully be a blessing. I would also love to redo the book that has been published.
    Your response will be well appreciated. Thankx.
