Blurb is a company and a community that believes passionately in the joy of books – reading them, making them, sharing them, and selling them.
Holding a finished book with your name on the cover is a truly amazing feeling; it’s one of those experiences everyone should have. As software people, designers, and publishing professionals at the top of our game, we realized something both incredible and obvious:
there’s no good reason why it should take tons of time, technical skills, big bucks, or friends in high places to publish a book. Or a zillion books, for that matter.
So we put our minds together, and developed a creative publishing service simple and smart enough to make anyone an author – every blogger, cook, photographer, parent, traveler, poet, pet owner, marketer, everyone. (This means you.)
The Blurberati, a.k.a. our stellar team, our Board, our friends and family, and especially the intrepid troop of Beta users who gave us equal parts tough love and encouragement.
We’d also like to thank the ancient Sumerians, for coming up with the whole book idea (too bad clay tablets were so crumbly); Gutenberg, for debugging the book (sometimes literally); and authors, for giving us so many reasons to believe in the power of books.
Blurb. What will your book be?
