Blurb Booksmart

OK, blog friends, I found an amazing site last night called blurb. It's a site where you can literally create your own book!! This is something I've been interested in quite some time, but have never found anywhere that's easy to use and inexpensive as well. But this is it, my friends. All you have to do is download the program which allows you to CREATE everything. While I realize if you're a Mac user, this is already an option, but to us PC folks, I find this to be quite amazing.

Expect Bookstore-Quality Books
  • Commercial-quality — Books feature four-color printing on 80# coated, semi-matte paper.
  • Flexibility — Books can be 20 to 440 pages.
  • Sturdy covers — Choose from black-linen hardcovers with library binding and custom 4-color laminated dust jackets, or softcovers with durable perfect binding.
  • Affordable — Prices start at just $12.95. Order one or many.
  • Fast turnaround — Once uploaded and ordered, your book will arrive in approximately
    7 to 10 business days.

    Free and Easy to Use Software
  • Cross-platform — Works on both Mac and PC.
  • Easy to make — Drag and drop images and text into hundreds of professionally designed layouts to create a book that reflects your style.
  • Creative control — Design and edit your book’s text and photos with intuitive layout tools.
  • Font support — Use all your own fonts in a variety of sizes and text styles.
  • Easy image management — Keep track of the images in your book with the “My Imported Photos” library.

    So, if you've ever wanted to get "published", you should check out their site!! (I won't be receiving any referal fees or anything like that, I just wanted to share my joy!)

    Thanks, I will! I started working on it tonight. It's going to be a labor of love, but I'm really excited about it!
