Extra! Extra! Read all about it

Do you have a writer inside of you that is dying to get out. Whether it be your ramblings on your blog or a full-on romance novel with a cheesy Fabio cover to boot you can now log on to Blurb and make yourself an author!

I know we have probably all used sites similar to this to make vacation books of our most recent trips, but BLURB takes it to a different level.

You can fill one with custom recipes and pictures of the recent treats you have made. Or you can write up a Christmas Tale and make a book for all the little ones in your family. You can even use it to promote your business and have examples of your work in book format that you can bring along with you when you meet with clients. There is even an option for a dust jacket, which to me makes it seem more like an actual book and you can even upgrade and add your custom logo.

Prices start at 12.95 for a 40 page soft cover book, $22.95 for a hard cover book with dust jacket and 24.95 for a hard cover book and image wrap.

P.S. Thanks so much for everyone that has made comments for the give away. Keep the ideas coming! I'll be putting all the names in a hat and drawing a winner on the 25th!
