Is it worthwhile printing books in 3 versions?
Tips and Tricks

Do you think it is worthwhile making a hardcover, medium size paperback and small size paperback for a photo book? Was wondering if people may buy the budget book that may not buy the hardcover. Or if budget books hurt the hardcover sale?

Anyone test the waters on this topic?

How do book previews affect sales?
Tips and Tricks

Not having made book #1 I don’t know how the book preview is set up. I assume the author decides on the # of pages for the preview. For photo books is more or less preview better for sales?

Will Blurb accept nudity?
Tips and Tricks

I wanted to make a book on 1970’s Hollywood. Maybe 15% of the pix are nudes. Will Blurb do the book? I wrote them and got no concrete answer other than ‘depends if they are viewed as artistic.’  I wont invest the time to make books that wont get approved, so I would like a definitive answer.

Here are some of my pix.

I would be using the BW photos from the 70’s. The color nudes would go in another book. But either way they are the type of nudes I am talking about.


Thanks


Dan
