Metadata is the who, what, when, and where of an eBook. Items like your title, subtitle, author name, and description are all types of metadata and are what most retailers use to appropriately list and categorize your content. Metadata is also one of the main causes for an eBook to bounce back from distribution, so it's important to ensure it's correct.

I play Lulu as a jungler.

._. this process is more stressful than editing. But worth it....

This was resolved some time ago. I added the -1 to the ISBN number on my copyright page, and it has all been changed. So now it should pass all requirements for GlobalReach, and I am supposing that is true. I made my own corrections, because it was faster than waiting for lulu to do so.
Jean Rodenbough
As best I can understand from this, my book Tree complies with all these points. But it was not accepted for Global Reach, and the reason I was given had to do with the ISBN number, which had an additional "-1" on the number. Please note that I DID NOT DO THAT. I had no part in affixing the ISBN number. It was done by you, Lulu, not by me. I sent you a long message to that extent and no one has responded to me. Either correct this or send me a refund for my cost.

Your message is not clear. I did everything to be correct and I am still stoped by your quality assurance department

Needs to be updated! Put clickable links in the description, not as part of the script for the reader to announce. And stop linking back and forth. Jaysus, you people are lazy.

I'm talking about a paper book, not an ebook. I produced 90% of the book, but not all, and so my title page says, "Jon with Sergey".  Should my cover match the title page?  I got confused by the term "meta data" because in all my dealings with Lulu I have omitted Sergey and I was thinking of that as the meta data.  Cambridge Press intended to do cover and title page differently.

Great! Thanks.

r\Re. Rev. Lowell's Laughter in the House of God. My name is Lowell Dean Streiker. The author title I want for the cover is Rev. Lowell D. Streiker, Ph.D. The form I filled out at the beginning of your process allows only for a first and a last name, What should I do to meet your requirements?
