Check out pictures of my new book!
General Interest

I kept a developers diary for my blurb book and I posted pictures of the hardcover 8×10 book that came in today and it is beautiful.  I was so worried by all the negative posts on this forum, but my optimism paid off and they did a fabulous job!  You can check out the blog to see pictures of my book here:

my book not in bookstore?
Book Design and Imaging

Take time out to read the sites FAQ’s.  To address your question directly—You must first purchase your book before it can appear in the blurb bookstore. It would be best to get familiar with the website before rushing in to produce sales.

Publising book option(s) versus the competition
General Interest

I am a big fan of blurb, but you almost lost me yesterday as I was browsing and came across Lulu.com and saw that not only do they print your book but they have additional option to put your book into amazon.com and barnes and nobles.com and give you an ISBN with a flat rate fee.  I was all ready to go when I found out they didn’t have the option for full color photobooks.  So i defaulted back to Blurb because I prefer them over lulu printing-wise.  So my question is, will this type of service ever be available to your customers?  I am sure a lot of us would like to journey off furthur than just the blurb bookstore.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

Also as a side question, if my blurb book has an ISBN number (that I obtain through my own independent efforts) is there anyway you can input that and a barcode onto your book in BookSmart and have them print it? Or how does that work?
