Simpler and more transparent pricing? Not for Aussies
Ordering and Shipping

I meant to say “listened” not listed.

I received the same email. I was excited at first that maybe they listed to all of us authors and reduced pricing by 40% so that we could actually sell our books and make a profit. They mentioned in the email that some book base pricing will actually increase if it’s already listed publicly and some may go down a bit. Mine didn’t move at all. Still the same astronomical price. I’ve asked them to skip the middle man (the outside printer) and become the printer themselves so that we can all win. So far, they haven’t budged. Too bad. No sales for anyone I guess. What a shame.

Converting my published book to an ebook on iPad
General Interest

That’s great news! I’ve been hoping they can convert my book as well. It failed 10 attempts. I’ve waited for support on mine for 15 days now. How long did it take for them to respond and convert yours?

Cannot convert to ebook ..
General Interest

Hi Ravi,

Were you ever able to get your book converted? Mine won’t convert and it’s been 15 days and they tell me it’s a “bug” in the system. I see that you posted this issue back in July of 2012 and now it’s February 2013. If Blurb hasn’t fixed this issue since then, I may need to look to do business elsewhere. I have a huge 244 page cookbook that I spent over one year making and I am so disappointed if I can’t also sell the eBook version…as it was going to be where I made most of my profit, since the hard cover costs an arm and a leg and even a kidney for the average person to pay!
