Blurb is an innovative publishing platform that enables you to create, sell and publicise your book, magazine, e-book or photo book - all online and with no external help. It’s an incredibly cheap way to get your creative idea off the ground and into people’s hands at a pace dictated by you. Blurb was founded by Eileen Gittins in 2005, with the intention of helping creative people reach their publishing goals without having to negotiate a traditional publishing deal. Blurb’s suite of book-making tools are free and easy to use, and it now records a book being created every minute of every day on the website.
If you need some guidance in any aspect of the book-making process, you can call on Blurb’s list of trusted creative collaborators, who can mentor you through cover design, ghostwriting, copy editing and advertising. So if you’re a chef with tonnes of recipes you want to share with the world, or a travel photographer with a new collection to show to a wider audience - why not have a look at Blurb and get started on your book today!
