Happening to me too. I've created 7 books in the past by slurping off my blog. Today when I tried to start a new one, I got the same username error you mentioned above. It was saved in booksmart from previous years so obviously the information was correct. Sounds like it's a system error since it's happening to multiple people. Hope they fix it or they're going to lose my business.
Can't slurp blog posts into my book
I'm trying to slurp more blog posts into my book. When it asks me to login to my account, it keeps telling me my username and password is not correct, I use blogger. I know I am doing the right info, I have used it for many years. Has this happened to anyone else?

I too am having the same issue...it's saying invalid credentials. And I have printed several books from this site via my blog from blogger as well. Hope someone responds or fixes this issue soon so I can get going on my book!
OK, I have been able to fix this issue! Right after I tried to slurp my blog into a book and it was giving me the "invalid credentials" error, I received an e-mail from my google account that someone had been trying to access my google account and they had blocked the sign-in attempt. The Google email encouraged me to change my password. So apparently google has increased their security settings in the year since I've done my last book, and so when I tried to logon to my blog through blurb to slurp it, it was blocking it. So I just went to my google settings and clicked "enable" and when I tried slurp my book again, it worked. So just lower your security settings and see if that helps. (https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps). I was able to slurp the blog and am now working on it. Hope this helps!
Thank you lyontige! It worked.
Thank you!!! Checking my gmail settings worked for me too! :)
I had the same error message "invalid credentials"...The link added by lyontige worked for me also! Thanks!!
Thank you SO much lyontige!!!!! I have been trying to figure this out for weeks!!!
My problem was indeed two-step verification with google. You do not need to lower the security, just create a application specific password (https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords) . Kudos to lyontige above to helping out.
Driving me crazy. I have printed books from my blog for years. It won't let me slurp them in even though I know my password is correct. I tried to change the privacy setting and it still does not work. Frustrated! Any other ideas on how to make it work?
Even after trying the lyontige link AND the 2-step verification password, I still cannot slurp my blog posts. Very frustrating! Has anyone recently found any new ways around this?
After hours of trying to figure this out, I found an update on the Blurb website from April that said if you wanted to continue using blogger and Picasa with Blurb, you need to download the latest version of Blurb. I did that and it worked fine. Good luck!
Thank you this solution!
