I’ve been wanting to create a photography eBook for quite some time now. However, I lack a few essential pieces of the puzzle; Adobe InDesign and the skills and the time to actually use InDesign. I was excited to learn that Blurb, the popular, print-books-on-demand service was considering offering a books-to-ebooks service sometime in the future. I think it’s a great idea because you can get pretty creative with their Booksmart software and being able to offer your people an ebook of your work can be very cost-effective.
I was even more excited the other day when I received an email from Blurb asking me to fill out a quick survey specifically surrounding the topic of an ebook service. The email said, “Might you be interested in helping us test a new bookmaking tool that we are especially excited about? It’s a brand new tool for converting your Blurb books into beautiful ebooks that can be viewed on either an iPad or an iPhone.” Sweet! Can’t wait until they roll out this service. If, by chance, I get chosen for the next round of testing I’ll be sure to keep you up to date.
