I would add, if you make them your intended size on the page and at 300ppi, 
they are less likely to get Blurbed to fit. A common
size seen in the first book was 7.6 inches wide for landscape format. That 
is 2280 px at 300ppi. Yes I know that PPI & DPI are not
the same.
Also I recommend that you sharpen them before submission.

Hi Wayne,

Here are your answers (I submitted last year and this year, and I read Jim's 
instructions carefully...):

1) JPG at the highest quality setting (100% in Lightroom)
2) Color space needs to be sRGB
3) Resolution is an irrelevant parameter. Think in terms of pixel dimensions 
and see item 4.
4) No constraints of any kind. Just export the full size file as 100% JPG 
with sRGB as color space.
