others can't open the link to my book

When I send the link to my book to others they receive the following message:
"The book you're looking for can't be found. It may have been deleted or removed from public view. If you think you've reached this page in error, please check the link and try again."
But I myself have no problem, even if i am not signed in, to open the link.
Here is the link to my book:

I am having this same issue right now. I can open it when I am signed in or out but when sharing the link I've been told the same error message you posted about is what they are getting.

Go to my projects and  accounts. Below the image of your book it says settings. Click on settings and then choose public.

My book is already "public" and the error message still comes up.

Mgmiller, If your book is listed publicly for sale, it can also be found by
going to the bookstore and entering the name of the book in the search
bar: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore
This may be the best way for your friends/family to purchase and or
preview your book since the link you have provided is not working for
them.

Same here! I tried to share the link on Facebook (all settings are "Public") and, although I could open it to the book preview, no one else on Facebook could. Those who got into the Blurb link were told the book doesn't exist.

same issue here, and it is a disgrace.  If we edit or do anything to our book we have to "BUY" a new one and then some, and it's so unfair.  Now my friends get the above message "My book number after editing is now 4651893 but when I search for my book on Google i see the number 4651685 and when i open that URL up (my book, my name) it says "The book you're looking for can't be found. It may have been deleted or removed from public view. If you think you've reached this page in error, please check the link and try again".    So now, my book is NOT there for them to search and I am NOT going to tell 1000 people who are getting newsletters tomorrow that sorry, Blurb say u have to go thru them, when only two days ago i could get to my book on Google, no worries.  I won't use Blurb again with this continuing problem.  Once the book is edited, paid for and ordered and uploaded, whatever, THAT book should be totally visible to all, not just thru Blurb but thru Google too.  AND PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME TO CHANGE THE SETTINGS TO MAKE PUBLIC. I HAVE ALREADY. STILL NOTHING..

For all those above, I contacted Google about this, because BLURB told me it was GOOGLE's issue, not ours or theirs.  

Google stated that  as BLURB is the webmaster of the page that shows this:
 
http://au.blurb.com/b/4651685-just-words  (my url for the book not found)
and this:
 
 
The book you're looking for can't be found. It may have been deleted or removed from public view. If you think you've reached this page in error, please check the link and try again.
 
that:
 
It is BLURB’s URL and BLURB needs to remove this and place in the proper URL for Google searches of your book.
 
So it is NOT a Google URL problem nor mine, nor yours, It is up to BLURB’s webmaster to fix this error.  I contacted BLURB to no avail, they simply say "go thru BLURB" which is unfair because when you do, some people won't go any further than the above "no book found" by searching in the bookstore and therefore finding it (under another order/book NUMBER if it has been edited in ANY way).  BLURB should fix, and I'd appreciate assistance in this (BLURB) and I would also appreciate other people copying and pasting this to BLURB customer service so that the issue can be resolved by the masses, as they may not take notice of just one customer.
