Have you ever fancied making your own coffee table book? Not Delia has teamed up with Blurb to offer you the chance to win the prize of publishing your very own book about whatever subject you like: food, travel, your kids – anything, really!
Imagine seeing your favourite photos published in a beautiful book. As aspiring foodie writers, we’d all love to see our own cookbooks in print, but it ain’t so easy unless you’re famous (or married to Gordon Ramsay – bah!).
Blurb makes it easy! You don’t have to traipse around publishers with your project proposal and face the prospect of rejection slips. You decide what you want to put in your book, and Blurb makes the book for you.
And now Blurb has made it even easier, because they’re offering a £30 voucher towards the price of your book as a prize to one lucky Not Delia reader. All you have to do is comment on this post and say WHY you deserve to win the prize. A Blurb staff member will then choose a winner. The closing date is the 31st of May so you have till then to enter, but don’t delay. Do it today!
Have a look at Blurb – it’s an easy website to use and find information such as pricing and shipping details. Their prices are surprisingly inexpensive and they ship to most countries so, depending on what you want to do, you could even make a free book if you win the prize!
By the way, you can also sell your books via Blurb. You can use these Blurb books for any subject you like. Perhaps you’d like to make a wedding album and share it with your friends and relatives. Are you an aspiring travel photographer? Make and sell your own travel photo book. You could also create and sell a book to raise funds for your favourite charity. You can do it. The possibilities are endless.
Go on over and have a look at Blurb, and then come back and tell us WHY you deserve to win the prize. Gotta be in it to win it, as they say.
Good luck, everyone!
