Hey Sav,

It’s no surprise your book is a staff pick, it is fabulous!  When my next book is done and I’m ordering my copy of that I’m gonna get a copy of your book too.  Is the first book I’ve decided I must buy, (and if I can’t see a full preview it usually puts me off).

Hope you’re going to write some more books, you have an amazing talent.

Starting out, need some advice.
General Interest

Hi Tim,

The only advice I can give is from my own experience.  I always wanted to write kids books but it seemed I never would.  Then I found Blurb :)  I just wrote them, did some illustrations, (and I am rubbish at drawing!), built the book and ordered a copy.  If nothing else, I have a copy of these books for myself and can cross it off my list of ‘things I’d love to do’.

I guess the fear is that no-one will like what we’ve written but does it really matter?  As a complete novice at all this I cannot express the feeling of pride when a copy of my first book arrived…it looked better than I had imagined.  Will anyone buy it?  Probably not.  Will I write millions more?  Definately!

Be brave, don’t stress too much over the finer details and have fun…..you’ll not regret it :)

Re: Negative Comments On Your Books
General Interest

I’ve just had a peep at your book and I think the photos are awesome :)
I can only imagine that the negative comments came from someone who has nothing better to do with their day. Still must have felt pretty bad to read it.
Rest assured though, your book is fantastic, love it :)

I am only allowed 20 pages- it won't let me make more--why? how?
Book Design and Imaging

I thought the same thing when compiling my first book.  I searched the help topics and all you need to do is select the ‘add page’ function.  It won’t let you increase it if your on the very last page with the Blurb logo on.  If your stuck just type something like ‘add pages’ into the search box in the help section.

Don’t panic :)
