Blurb launches their platform to allow users to publish eBooks that can be downloaded at iTunes.  several photographers and artist have been long waiting for this ability as Blurb is one of the highest quality companies out there.  If you are new to Blurb be sure to check them out for your hard print or digital books.  Below is their write up.

Dear Bookmakers,

Starting today, the books you've made with Blurb BookSmart® and Blurb Bookify™ are available as Blurb ebooks. They're gorgeously rendered, full-resolution versions of your books, optimized for the iBooks® app on the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®. You order them like any other Blurb book, and we do all the fancy conversion.
Here's how you can get started:
  • Sign in and go to "Your Books."
  • Order the iPad/iPhone version (you'll find this option just above the printed book options on the right side of the screen). 
  • Enter the promo code at checkout. 
  • Download it or send the link to an iPad or iPhone.
And you can make your ebook available for sale to others. Just select the "iPad" option under "Seller Options" in the "Edit Book Settings" tab of your book details page. While you're there, set the markup through our Set Your Price program.

It's a new and beautiful way to experience and distribute your books.
Check it out now.
Happy ebookmaking,
The Blurberati
