Where are my book comments?

The Internet is nothing if not a rapid stream of change. A lot of this change is good. Some of it is not so good – case in point: Facebook is changing the way its comment widget works, and we’ve had to reconfigure the way commenting works on our site. As a side-effect, past comments made on book pages via the Facebook commenting widget will no longer show on our site.

First, let us say that we’re as sad about this as you are. Commenting on books is a key part of community. You’ve done great work and garnered amazing comments. We hate to see them go away. We looked at this issue from all angles and thought about ways to salvage your hard-earned comments, but it just wasn’t possible. Comments made without the Facebook widget will still show up, however.

We’re switching to our own home-brewed commenting widget, however, so the ability to make comments will remain. And we’re working on ways to improve our overall community experience in the bookstore.

Thanks for weathering the changes with us. Got questions? Put them in the comments section below.

  1. Can a person work on more that one book at a time?

  2. Hey Jerry,

    Absolutely! All of our book making tools let you work on multiple books at the same time.

  3. I have published three books with Blurb. I love their BookSmart program as it allows complete freedom to create YOUR book YOURSELF. They offer no editing, no comments, no suggestions. All they do is print what you create. I love this system myself! I have had none of the problems that others have voiced. My only complaint is that the copies cost so much. That is my sole complaint. I realize this is not a mass market publisher and that the books I create are one-of-a-kind type specialty books, but still, $50 for a hardback w/jacket 120-page book is a little steep. I am thoroughly satisfied with Blurb’s quality. In fact, that’s what drew me to them in the first place. A friend of mine sent me a draft copy of his book from Blurb to review and I was very favorable impressed with the quality. When I was ready to have mine published, I chose Blurb for this reason. I purchased the PDF rights for $10 and have sold a couple of dozen disks with the PDF copy on them for $5.00 each. It’s true that the author has no control once you release it to Blurb for printing. It’s up to you to make sure it is as you want it. That’s the beauty of BookSmart. You can SEE what it’s going to look like, the colors, the fonts, the margins, the layout. I always order a couple of drafts and hand them out to friends for review before I have the final version printed. When I get my own copy of the final version, I order the special paper. It is BEAUTIFUL!
