How can I upload my book for others to download/read?

  • Updated 6 years ago
I would like to upload a book I self-published, but the print run is all sold out. People still contact me asking how to get a copy - is there some way I can upload this book (local history with photos) so that I can direct people to it, to download/read?

Thank you so much.

Hi dinah,

I'm a little confused by your question. If you printed your book using Blurb, it's printed on demand, so not only do you have zero inventory to deal with (if that's what you want), but you or your fans can order one or two or many whenever.

When you make a book through Blurb you get a free bookstore that you can direct anyone to via email. If you have a blog or website, you can post a Blurb badge that goes directly to your bookstore so people can preview the first 15 pages of your book and order.

Hope this helps. If not, please contact customer support so we can answer your specific question.

Dinah: Are you talking about taking a book that was published via print and turning that into a Blurb book? Or, are you a Blurb member who is having trouble with a book that was previously printed using Blurb? Let us know, and we'll try to get you fixed up so that you can get published in the way that you want.

Yes you can, first scan all pages of your book, your hard copy will now become softcopy, then download any "picture to pdf converter" software. then upload your pdf to google books.
