Publishing Projects

Overview

The Lulu Publication API allows anybody to create books in any format that Lulu supports, including both physical books and eBooks.  Through the API, you can control all aspects of the book's metadata, from author/title to price and distribution. Once the book has been published through our API, you can direct your users to purchase the book through the Lulu.com bookstore.

Books published through the API are eligible for distribution to our standard channel partners, which include Amazon, Apple's iBookstore, and a variety of other leading retailers.  The channels your book is eligible for is dependent on the exact specifications of your book.

Client libraries in a variety of languages can be found on github.
