In this day and age of impersonal emails and electronic books, nothing feels quite like a real book. The kind that you can flip through the pages and read anywhere at any time without needing to carry some sort of electronic device. Published books on good old paper as we know it have been around for hundreds of years since Gutenberg revolutionized printing, and that is how people have enjoyed books since then. Even nowadays, most people still prefer reading things on books.
Here is where Blurb enters the picture. Blurb’s rather novel concept of Print on Demand (POD for short) saves an aspiring author or even picture book artist thousands of dollars in publishing costs and other incidental expenses, as well as the hassle of knocking on doors and jumping through proverbial hoops just to get a publisher to publish his or her work.
How does POD work? In short, as a writer all you need to do is pay for ONE book. That’s right. You don’t need funding for a minimum of 500 copies of your work to be published, because all you need to do is to pay for that ONE copy. If there is a demand for your work, then more of your work will be published. This formula is so simple and effective that architects, cooks and photographers are amongst the most successful people to have their works published through Blurb.
Now for the tough part. Well, it isn’t so tough really but it requires a bit of effort on your part. How do you put your work together for publication? There are several ways to go about this. If you go to Blurb’s website, you will find all the tools you need on the spot. Again, you may do it all yourself. Or you may ask Blurb to do it all for you, since you want that professional look and you would rather spend more time writing instead of going through the actual work of assembling and formatting a book.
The third option? Let the people here at The Fast Fingers do the job for you at a reasonable price. They are very well-versed in getting the job done not only for eBooks but also for paperbacks and hardbound books well. That way, all you really need to do is sit back, write to get your book ready. Getting your book published has never been easier.
