Blurb BookSmart software is an easy-to-use, downloadable bookmaking application that allows users to drag and drop content into professionally designed templates – and then to customize them by using flexible layouts, backgrounds, fonts, colors, etc. In addition, we will show ready-made “Instant Classic” templates for several types of books, such as baby books, dog/cat books, and cookbooks.
Our presentation will be a detailed walk-through of the full book-making process that would enable us to more deeply explain the various book templates that are available, to thoroughly demonstrate the authoring environment and the tools provided for users to customize their books, and to display various samples of completed books.

Holding a finished book with your name on the cover is a truly amazing feeling – it’s one of those experiences everyone should have. There’s no good reason why it should take tons of time, technical skills, big bucks or friends in high places to publish your book. Blurb’s publishing service is simple and smart enough to make anyone an author – every blogger, cook, photographer, parent, traveler, poet, pet owner, marketer, everyone. (This means you.)
