I am LOST!!!!

I have used Blurb before, mainly for photos but this time it is all text for a book I have written.  Here is my problem I can not for the life of me get the text into Blurb and stay formatted.  I have tried to go back in and format it in Blurb and it just doesn’t look the same.  I have put it in a doc form, and a PDF form but I am missing something I think. Can anyone guide to me at least a spot where to get started for getting my text into Blurb?  I created it in Word….do I need the Adobe program to actually publish it?  UGH

 Thank you….Laura

‘I created it in Word’

Just a thought , but word does save everything with hidden formatting, did you use the booksmart add in, for word, ?

You have to download the word blurb plugin, so guess you did not use it (I don’t, but have tried it ) So, try copying all your text into notepad, and then into booksmart, so losing the ’hidden format ’ codes
