Two Great Deals, One Big Question: Proposal Books from Blurb

Affiliate links bu clicking any link i may get a commission

Marriage proposal books are a new trend that your readers might like to spend their Blurb discount on. We have created a sample blog post to inspire them to create their own unique printed proposal, as well as grab their Blurb discount.

Some proposals happen on a mountain top. Some happen while she’s brushing her teeth. Whether you prefer the extravagant or the subtle, you are going to want to commemorate this milestone of life. That’s why the idea of publishing a proposal into a printed Blurb book is so appealing. Here are a few ideas of how to craft the most creative “Will You Marry Me?” chronicle.

  • Write a children’s book where the main characters are you and your beloved. Print the book withBlurb, then have it put onto the shelves at your local library. Take her on a reading date and “stumble” across the book. (Just remind her that you’re in the library and she’ll have to tone down those shrieks of joy.)
  • Create a beautiful photo essay of your relationship. Include photos of where you met, special pieces from your first date, scenes from your favorite events. Use the pictures to tell a silent story of your love and then complete this happy ending with a picture of you and a sign asking for her hand.
  • Is your beloved a foodie? Make her a Blurb cookbook of love! Ask your family and friends for their favorite recipes and put them together into one book, complete with pictures. Add in your own recipe of love with ingredients that include moments from your courtship. Just be sure that when the relationship is fully baked, you ask about the final course – a lifetime of sweet memories.

Blurb loves helping people to publish their dreams and right now they are offering two special deals to get your proposal in print. Save 15% on all purchases by using promo code: AUGUST15 at checkout.Save 25% on print book orders of $75+ on 1st purchase only, when you use promo code: TRYOUT at checkout.

“Dear Girlfriend”-A Hand Held Walk Through Breast Cancer

Suzan Rivers, a Breast Cancer survivor, will take you by the hand from the day you are diagnosed and explain every test, every surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. She will be your new best girlfriend as she walks you through your fears and tears with love and laughter along the way to wellness of mind, body and spirit. 
When Suzan Rivers was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer she ran out to find a book written by a Breast Cancer survivor. She wanted to go with the author through every test, every surgery and every emotion that the writer had experienced while fighting cancer. She could not find such a book to purchase so she wrote it herself, for you.
While you read “Dear Girlfriend” – A Hand Held Walk Through Breast Cancer you will be with Suzan in the utmost intimate and frank description you will ever read of what it is really like to fight Breast Cancer. You will sit beside her as she is told by the doctor that she has cancer. You will be with her as she goes through a lumpectomy and later a bi-lateral mastectomy. You will go through radiation and chemotherapy with her. You will be with her the day her hair falls out, a day that starts with tears but ends in laughter. You will be with her through reconstruction of her breasts. Through the whole experience you will see that her life went on full speed ahead, nothing slowed down even though she had cancer. You will see Suzan pull off Christmas for her family even though she was bald and doing chemo. You will hear her say that Mama has to make the magic. You will see her struggle to remain a good wife, daughter, friend, and mother.
You will experience the miracles that kept her alive. You will laugh with her out loud over and over because funny things still happened even though she had cancer. You will become her best girlfriend. She will tell you everything she learned along the way so that your walk through cancer will be easier. She will share all the intimate secrets to survival like how to keep your skin from scaring, how to deal with vaginal dryness caused by estrogen inhibitors, what kind of wig to buy etc. She will share little tricks and helpful hints throughout that will make every step of the Breast Cancer walk easier for you.
This book is not just a “must read” for Breast Cancer patients, but also for their families, friends and loved ones that will accompany them on their journey of treatment and recovery.

“A Woman of Love, Power and Respect ….by: Author Nichole Peters

“I want nothing more than for every young girl to grow to become “A Woman of Love, Power and Respect.” Based on a true story, author Nicole Peters relates the trauma and turmoil of her young life, growing up in the 80’s. 
Raised by a single mother working to pay the bills, young Nikki grows up in in Louisiana’s lower-class Redmond Heights projects. As an illegitimate child, an adolescent Nikki is spurned by her father, eventually leading her to make poor choices in her young adulthood. Sassy, popular, boy-crazy, and living life in the fast lane, a once confident Nikki grows up haunted by demonic visions and nightmares, which led her to the point of complete physical and emotional breakdown.

A Woman Of Love Power And Respect takes you on a journey through the life of a young woman raised in degradation who fights like hell to escape feeling imprisoned by spiritual and emotional pain. In this poignant drama, her account of her hardship as a child, struggles as a single mother of disabled children, and ultimate triumph over her abusive past, makes for a glorious story of how God can bring healing to those scarred by their past.

Make a beautiful book (with a little help from your friends)!
(sponsored post)

 

Want to make a really special gift for someone? I always recommend making them a beautiful photo book. But the good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. Here’s some advice on how to make a beautiful birthday or anniversary book from my friends at Blurb (with examples from the book “Our Life” by Pandora Frazier).

This is the big one. A “this is your life” photo book. A book you’ll put together to present to a really special person in your life, at a really special point in their life. 50th birthday, 50th anniversary, a wedding, a memorial—life’s big events look even bigger when you present a gift that’s a tribute to them, full of heartfelt stories and personal photographs from their most loved ones. Sound a little complicated? It’s not, especially when you have people on your book-making team (and handy instructions from Blurb).

Gather your siblings, some special friends, or a group of talented coworkers and get started on the book of a special person’s lifetime.

Here’s exactly how you can get a group together to make it work:

Steps

  1. Choose a team of people to help you with your book
  2. Have your team contact friends and family of your special person to collect stories and photos about them
  3. Choose which stories and photos you actually want to use
  4. Edit the stories and scan the photos
  5. Lay out your book with text boxes and photo pages
  6. Get feedback from your team and make final edits

Sell Your Blurb Book on Amazon

Sell Your Blurb Books on Amazon
(This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.)

Blurb has always been a great way for people to make books about the things that interest them. And while it’s always been possible to sell your books via Blurb’s website, you can now sell the books you make on Amazon! Imagine, your work on the world’s biggest marketplace!

Here’s an excerpt from an interview with Donna Boyer, Blurb’s Chief Product Officer, on how the whole thing works:

What’s the most exciting thing about authors being able to sell their books through Amazon.com? 
Setting up Blurb books to be available on Amazon.com couldn’t be easier. Once authors have uploaded their book to their Blurb account, they simply go to their Book Details page to select “Amazon” under the “Sell my book” options. That’s it. Once authors provide their info to get paid, Blurb handles the rest.


What can authors expect when listing on Amazon.com?
Once an author submits their book, it will be available for sale on Amazon.com within about seven days. Authors should plan to market their book to their network in order to drive reviews and sales rankings on Amazon, which can then lead to organic sales from new readers. It’s important for authors to remember that Amazon adds a fee for selling through Amazon.com, so the list price will need to be higher in order to make the same profit as a book sold directly via the Blurb platform.

Selling through Amazon.com is quite the game changer—can authors list their books on Amazon.com if they’ve already published them through Blurb?
Absolutely. Any existing photo paper book is eligible for distribution on Amazon. 

What are the biggest reason Blurb authors will want to take advantage of Amazon.com distribution?
A big benefit of Amazon is that it gives authors a new opportunity to expand their audience beyond their current network.

Check out the full interview and learn more about selling your Blurb published book. As part of the new Blurb to Amazon program, Blurb is offering a great deal. Save 15% through May 15th when you use the code MAY15.
