  • Any text revisions will require a new package to be purchased
  • The EPUB conversion and Helix Review will both be based on the same version of the manuscript.

How do I start?

  • Upon purchase, you will receive an activation email from Lulu with an attached questionnaire. The questionnaire must be filled out and returned in a reply to that email within 30 days of purchase to activate the service.
  • When you submit your questionnaire, you should also upload your finalized manuscript to the My Files section of your Lulu account. Instructions on how to use My Files can be found in the activation email.
  • Once we receive your questionnaire and document, we will begin working on your conversion.
  • In 1-2 weeks, a new eBook project will be built in your account, published, and approved for retail distribution. You will receive an email when this process is complete.

The Helix Review is the ultimate unbiased perspective into your book.

I used the insights from my Review to understand where I am as a writer and to validate what I was trying to achieve with my book. The Review also helped me with marketing and selling my book by giving me ideas for blog posts to generate interest.
