Blurb is a real quality site. Did you use the InDesign plug-in and their color profile?

Nice book!

The ONLY problem with Blurb is you have to have $25 in your account before they pay you.

I've just finished mine as well for my marshmallow series... http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/3544595
But it'll probably be deleted from Blurb since I can't afford to buy a copy myself right now... maybe after FAA payday.

 

Several! Too tired to post the links right now tho...maybe tomorrow. Congrats on your book.

Heather,

You can just upload it again after it's deleted.

Kylani..
It's easy , you upload their program, choose the book size in photography, pick the kind of pages you want , I
picked the ones where I could write what the photo was about. The price of the book goes by how many pages, if
you want a paperback, hardcover with removable cover. Your best best is go to blurb download their program and
play with it to get familar, my book is 8 X 10 when you buy one it goes into their store, you can also do for free an
E Book they put it togther, try it and let me know..I used " Standard Portrait 8 X 10 Size, I also use photo pages
where you put one large photo at a time with box underneath to put story or title of photo..

Cheers..Joe

@Joseph - your book is truly enchanting! Nice job:)

@Heather - How adorable! Especially love the marshmallows playing baseball!

I've used Blurb for a book on New England a few years ago. I was really happy with the way it turned out. Here's the link:

Joann..
I just came from blurb and saw your book, your photography is " GORGEOUS !!"
Did you know you don't have to show the whole book to me people will se it all
and not buy ! I talked to customer service at Blurb and this is how you change the
preview, do only 15 pages, here's the directions , let me know how it works..

Got to settings bookstore
Hit preview under book
next page preview
between share and sell click preview again, then click onto show customized preview
then you'll see to your left how to change the preview.

Cheers..Joe...

I just got one of my Blurb books - and sent another one to my mother - both look amazing. The quality is really nice. Blurb books are pretty expensive even without any markup though. Not sure I'll sell any!

Yeas, I self-published a book of flowers in black and white called "Life in black and white".
Soon I realised how bad was the photographs and I vanish it.

It was 1 years ago.

I think the main thing stopping me is the possibility of sales. Has anyone had them through Blurb? I'm not at the point of taking the risk of ordering a bunch and hoping I can find buyers to sell them too. I have gone the calendar route before through Lulu. Their product wasn't bad, although a couple of the images looked washed out, and at least in one case it was probably my fault.

I only ordered a copy of each of mine. Can't hurt to just put them up for sale on Blurb, just another outlet. I also have a calendar on Lulu that I've ordered many copies on to sell myself. They worked out to be quite cheap so I can mark them up a decent amount.

Gary,

You can sell books through Blurb like you sell art here. You set your markup and they ship them to the customer. Of course, you have to direct people to your book's there. But you don't need to order a bunch, unless you want to sell them at shows.
