Ebooks

Digital publications offer authors and book-makers of all types an easy, cost-effective way to share and sell their work. With Blurb, you can make ebooks in both fixed-layout (for the iPad) and reflowable (for Kindle devices) formats.

Digital. Affordable, portable, flexible

Blurb lets you convert any book or magazine you create with us into a gorgeous fixed-layout ebook for the iPad. And with our new creation and layout tool, BookWright, you can also create a reflowable ebook for Kindle devices and apps. Ebooks can be shared and distributed globally with ease. So if you're making a print book or magazine, there's no reason not to publish digitally as well. Our digital formats are perfect for everything from family photo books (hello Aunt Edna in Croatia) to novels that rival War and Peace in length.

Fixed-layout ebooks

Blurb's fixed-layout ebooks maintain the integrity of your design so that the digital experience is as close to the print book as possible. Our conversion process delivers an extremely high fidelity ebook that mirrors the print version. You can even add audio and video to take full advantage of the medium. We've also licensed over 50 ebook-friendly fonts that are free to use.

Our fixed-layout ebooks and emagazines look incredible on an iPad—and we've made it easy for you to sell your digital publications in Apple's iBooks Store.

Reflowable ebooks

One of the best ways for authors to reach a wider audience is to have a competitively priced ebook available for e-readers such as the Kindle. Blurb makes it easy to convert your manuscript into a reflowable ebook that you can upload and sell through Amazon's Kindle store. Our free desktop publishing application, BookWright, lets you import any Rich Text Format (RTF) file and output as a Kindle Format 8 (KF8) file.

To show you just how easy it is, we've created a simple guide to making a reflowable ebook with BookWright.
