In the original Lulu site, I could pick my book design and cover from a link on the home page, but it seems I have to put the title of my book on the Beta home page first before I can proceed to the next stage. As a member of Lulu since 2008, sometimes, as with the book I am now writing, the Title can change a number of times before I settle on the one I want. I am sure it will be the same with many writers. Before I get to the designing stage I have to fill in the Start page, then the Copyright page, including contributors, and editors. And this before I even get to the Design page, which in my opinion should be the first link to making my own book. Following that, I cannot, therefore, download a PDF creation guide. How then am I supposed to know what format I should use? Perhaps I am missing something. I hope so.
Thank you for your attention
