Here’s another great contest within a contest that will definitely appeal to all the creative Moderncat readers! If you don’t already know about Blurb.com, you’re going to love this. It’s an online service that lets you publish your own beautiful, full-color books, one (or several) at a time. It looks very easy, you simply download their software to help you create your book or you can create your book in your own layout software and use a pdf to publish it. Either way, the end result is a professional looking, bookstore-quality book. Once you’ve created your book online, you can easily promote it and let others purchase copies directly from Blurb and make a little extra cash for yourself. Both hardcover and softcover are available in a variety of sizes.
