I made a book out of my 4th-grader’s writing journal diary—I went from my Word doc with pictures to the ‘finished’ proof within an hour! Complete with cover and jacket photos! It was shipped and delivered within a week, and the finished product was as good or better than I imagined. It opened my eyes to how easy this could be, and now I have a wish list of a dozen books I want to create! I am definitely planning on using BookBaby again!
