Book pricing
Ordering and Shipping

I have recently signed into my books store and discovered that the prices I set for my books have changed and when I have tried to alter the pricing, there is no change. Please explain

Thank you

Limited edition pricing
Web Features

I have recent completed two versions of the same book – a softcover book of 140 pages and a Hardcover, image wrap book of 160 pages. The softcover is currently in the public site of Blurb and I wanted to make the Hardcover book public. But ….. this is a limited edition of 100, so I would like to have it on the public site with a price but without the Add to cart function for the general public so that they have to contact me to order the book. This way I can order the book for them, sign and number the book before sending it to them.
Is it possible to do this or is there another way within Blurb ?
Thanks
Paul

restricting cover and paper choices
Tips and Tricks

Thank you for your feedback.
I have already done what you suggested. I guess it is a little confusing because when you preview the book, it appears as a hardback with dustjacket and the options for hardbacks still appear in the cart window ??

restricting cover and paper choices
Tips and Tricks

What I am saying is that I have a book which I only want to sell as a softcover and only with the premium paper. Is this something I can indicate to prospective buyers ?
and if so, does this only show up when I have moved the book from private to public ?

sending links
Tips and Tricks

I have recently tried to send a link for my book to a number of friends but it doesn’t appear to be working. My book is private – I have copied e-mail address into the ‘announce’ page and the links have arrived in their mail boxes (even sent one to one of my own e-mail addresses). When the link is clicked on, it just takes you to the Blurb bookstore and not to my book. But … there is a notice at the top right hand of the page saying – Invalid link. Please ensure the link is not wrapped in your email client.
Not sure what this means ??
I have also tried to copy and paste the link into a new google search window and it comes up the same

Any suggestions, welcome

Paul

Printing process
Book Printing

I am about to order a final printing on my Blurb book and am applying for a Barcode for the book. I already have an ISBN number.

The company supplying a Barcode has asked me the question – WHAT METHOD OF PRINTING WILL BE USED TO PRINT THE BAR CODE IE. LITHO, DIGITAL, FLEXO, ETC.
I would appreciate an answer to this question if possible

Many Thanks

Paul

Book resizing
BookSmart

Currently working on a Blurb Book in a Large landscape format/HardCover and I would like to produce a version of the same book in a smaller format – the Standard Landscape/SoftCover.

When I duplicate the book, there doesn’t seem to by a way of changing the format.
Is there another way of doing this ?

Many Thanks

Paul
