yep, I'd just use elevons or, if mixing is an issue, have the surfaces split with the outer part working as ailerons and the inner as elevators.

As noted by others, the lifting body as a glider will have terrible glide performance. Basically it's about the worst layout it's possible to have for a glider. Unless you plan on re-entering the Earth's atmosphere then there are no redeeming qualities (other than looking cool)
