After all my work creating in LR book module, I cannot send the created book to Blurb using the button in lower right corner.    Halfway through the process, I get this error message: "An error occurred while creating the book".  I have retried many times.    For info, I can export the book as a jpeg to my hard drive.  I thought I may be able to save the book in pdf and then upload to Blurb on their website. However, I cannot even export the book as a pdf to the hard drive.  I have save other pdf files so I really don't know what is the problem.   I saw that some were reporting this problem a few years ago.   Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Is Blurb up? Is their connection down?

You may find an answer in the reply I gave in this forum thread-

BOOK TEXT ERROR

And to find where an error might be occuring- read in particular the post from fabsanchez (linked here)-

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/book-module-uploading-to-blurb-an-error-occurred-wh...

Incompatible fonts, over-filled text boxes, Page Background photos, -seem to be common recurring error problems.

WobertC,

Thank you for your prompt response.  I spent all day going through the solutions in both threads you attached.  A lot of good info though, but nothing worked for me.   I am a long time LR user and have made a number of books using other vendors.   But this is the first effort at using the LR Book module and Blurb.   I think I have spent too much  time and effort  trying to send this book to Blurb and exporting as a pdf from the book module.   Will go back to my other book printers.
