Warning, rant forthcoming. So, for the past 3 years I've been using Blurb to create one book a year, each featuring 100 paintings from that year. I was becoming moderately unhappy with Blurb since they had raised their prices so much, but was willing to continue as the competition was sparse. I recently put together my fourth book and ordered a test copy. I was appalled at the quality! I wrote to them to see if maybe this was an accident. It's been 4 days and I still haven't heard back.
My lovely stepdaughter, Maddie, did some research and found a new publisher -- Magcloud. It is owned by HP and I am giving it a try. So, my book will be later than usual this year, but if all goes well I will have it out before Christmas, it will be bigger, and a lower price!
