mogrify -format pdf *.tif
for file in $directory/*.tiff
sam2p $filename.tiff $filename.pdf
then I also use pdftk
Once I have PDF versions of all the pages, I use a second tool, pdftk, to put them together with the command
pdftk p*.pdf cat output mybook.pdf
pdftk *.pdf cat output mybook.pdf ; pdftk mybook.pdf output fixed.pdf ; mv fixed.pdf mybook.pdf

First, locate where the output TIFFs that were produced in Scan Tailor.
OSX has the app "Preview' already on your Mac which can convert a series of TIFFs from Scan Tailor into a PDF. Simply open Preview with the cover image TIFF, and drag more images onto the opened TIFF. It should combine the TIFFs where you can then save the correlated images as a single PDF. In ColorSync utility app (built-in on OSX), you can make custom compression settings for your PDFs too.
When you have the desire to OCR your TIFFs, I personally recommend OmniPage Pro X. It performs OCR before it compresses and converts the image to PDF. There are several apps like AABBY Express, Adobe Acrobat, and Readiris, etc.
There is also plans regarding some interesting PDF & DJVU software for the community being written by DIY members here, so you should also explore djvubind (http://www.diybookscanner.org/forum/vie ... ?f=3&t=521) and look for an upcoming PDF builder app as well.
But try and stay with PDFs for awhile to ensure application compatibility and don't delete your master processed images; you need to determine the most ideal compression settings and what format will be best for you. This takes time, trial and error.

I've been busy on non-scanning projects for the past few months, which has kept me away from it, and I originally left it off when I ran into a problem with ImageMagick. I'm still aiming to get it finished in the relatively near future, and I have most of the technical issues sorted through now.
