"For what it's worth (maybe not much), only my French publisher has published my books in two formats: trade paper and mass market. They are also the only ones to put out a book club edition in hc. And, they are the only ones that produce some…"

"No, they're still going to do a hardcover and trade paperback first. I do have a different royalty deal from the publisher for e-books."

"It will be interesting to see how infrastructure changes in the industry affect availability. I've had three books published in hardcover (two from Harcourt and one from St. Martins), two of them also came out as trade paperbacks but I…"

"I know you didn't. :) I was just pointing out that there is this "cheap" mantra being touted far too often as the be all and end all for e-books. For some writers, it isn't about trying to sell to the masses, but doing good…"
