Text Box: ATTENTION AUTHORS & BIBLIOPHILES! 
The Espresso Book Machine at Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse is Now Taking Orders 
Offering Self Publishing Services and On Demand Books 
Independently owned Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse is one of a few dozen places in the United States with an Espresso Book Machine (EBM), a Time magazine “invention of the year,” and the only location in the greater Los Angeles area. The store helps readers connect with the books they want, and now, with the EBM, the staff can also assist authors connect their work with others. Novels, poetry collections, journals, family histories, or even family recipes, can be turned into bound, beautiful volumes. The EBM transforms digital files into a paperback book complete with a full color cover and a black and white interior. These are trade-quality paperback books, indistinguishable from those produced by traditional publishers. 
There is no minimum number for print runs, so one can print as many or as few copies, as needed, and we can arrange for shipping to any domestic address. Printing, binding and trimming time is about as long as it takes to grab a cup of espresso. A work-in-progress can also be printed, uploading revised files and printing new versions at any time. Books can be offered for sale or kept private (printable only by the author) – whichever best suits the project. If a book is made available for sale, the author retains all rights to the work and is responsible for setting the retail price. 
As opposed to on-line self-publishing services, Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse offers live, hands-on, personal assistance, and can walk authors through the entire process customized to their needs. The turn-around time for printing is faster than for most websites, and once set up, the book is available at any time for just the cost per copy. 
In addition to self-publishing services, the EBM prints On Demand Books (ODB), offering over three million, public domain, out of print books, and now, in collaboration with various publishers, a growing selection of current releases. ODB books can be printed in as little as fifteen minutes. They can be ordered on-line and either picked up at the store or shipped. Visit On Demand Books search for a title, and have it printed on our EBM. 	                                                             http:/ondemandbooks.com,
