Eight years ago, I sat down with my infant daughter in one hand and a pen in the other, and wrote a note designed to be read by my three children when they were old enough to become parents. That barely-decipherable scribble became a book full of notes about pregnancy and parenting. Eventually, those notes became a manuscript. And now, with the help of MixBook, that manuscript has become The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond!
Thanks to Mixbook, a notebook full of advice became The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond! I got you 45% off to try Mixbook, too! Over the past few years, I had explored the traditional routes of self-publishing, but the results—including my Big List of Things That Suck—fell short of what I wanted to do graphically. My goal was to create a short-and-sweet pregnancy book that covered the basics. I wanted it to feel friendly—not textbook. And I wanted people to be able to read it online–for free—before deciding if they wanted to buy a physical copy.
Then I discovered Mixbook.
You know those albums you’ve been making in iPhoto? Mixbook kicks it up a couple thousand notches with templates and cover options that let you pretend you’re a real book designer. You can even create a photo book from your phone, and embed your completed book into a website–so people can read it virtually.
I used Mixbook to design The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond! and the experience was ridiculously easy and incredibly rewarding.
Mommy Greenest readers can use “OUT45MIX” for 45% off when you make your own book at Mixbook. Because who knows when inspiration will hit!
