Jayne posted a picture of the cover of the book she recently self-published. The picture had a link to where we can buy her book, which also tells how you, too, can download software and make your own book.
So I did it. And now, it consumes me! I’m making a book, too. Mine will be about all these winter fungi I’ve been obsessed by.
The software is pretty intuitive and easy to use. Pick a size and design. Click inside text boxes and type. Drag your photos into “containers.” You are limited to the templates provided by Blurb and Blurb retains copyright to the layout and design. You retain copyright to the content. Once you are done, you publish it onto the Blurb site where you can direct your friends to buy your book (or where you can order copies of your own book to give away or keep…)
I’m sure there are other book publishing tools out there. This is the first one I’ve tried and so far, I like it. I’ll let you know if I ever finish this project… There are a couple of fungi I have yet to identify and I’d like to before I go to print!
I “blame” you, Jayne. But I thank you, too. This is an awful lot of fun!
