When I want to publish a book online, Blurb is my go-to company. Here's their ad on the internet:
Passion + Design = Perfect Book. Make a Book. Leave Your Mark.
If you, like me, have a passion, and love to design, how can that not speak to you?
Recently, I posted a blog entitled Eternity, and my sister suggested I might add to it and turn it into a book.
So that's what I did.
Or, more specifically, I used Blurb's magazine format to make a book.
Blurb's design and layout application, Bookwright, is downloadable, and I found it to be intuitive and user friendly. I chose the magazine format, quite honestly, because the price was remarkably low. On my first attempt, I ordered the economy magazine--20 pages for $3.99. The paper was thin, and the photos didn't have the rich saturation I had hoped for. So I ordered another one with premium paper, still only $5.99 (plus postage, which runs high) for 20 pages, and I am very happy with the result. The cover has a soft gloss, and the colors pop off the substantial matte paper inside. Perfect.
About that passion?
I think knowing about the next world is one of the most encouraging things in this one, and who of us can't use a little encouragement?
