Blurb booksmart was easy to download and start using, and seems to be one of the best programs available to be able to have creative control of your book. The finished product looks great, the delivery and pricing is fantastic, and features such as a pop up to tell you if there are issues, a comprehensive spell check when complete, auto save and an easy way of choosing and managing photos made the experience a good one.
However, there are a few minor annoyances that if overcome would give this service a five star review.
For example, if you create your own page template you are then unable to link your text boxes - which means that I had to create text, break it into equal sections and then paste it back into the columns I had created. I then had to format each one individually.
You also don't seem to be able to choose a default font and size. I'm also disappointed that there is not yet a 2013 planner template, as I was hoping to create Christmas presents over the coming months.
Having said all this, the negatives are minor niggles in a great service. I am already in the process of creating my next book, and if these issues were dealt with it would just make for a smoother journey.
