Description: Publishing startup Blurb is hoping to disrupt the book publishing business by giving authors more control — and more profits. The company invites authors tmake all the business decisions surrounding a published book (paper quality, colors, number of units, etc.), and even cut a deal to distribute those books to retail stores as well as digital copies in Amazon’s Kindle store. Blurb only makes money when a book is sold, which seems to be working out pretty well considering that the startup is profitable. Blurb founder and CEO Eileen Gittins told VentureBeat the company has some big plans for the next year that should make Blurb more attractive to Hollywood (among others), and we can’t wait to see what they are.
