INTERESTING ARTICLE ON E-BOOK PRICES

If you haven't seen it, you might find this article on e-book prices interesting.

I found it interesting that the writer seems to assume that any given mass-market book will sell in the "millions of units." You and I know a lot of authors who would see the dark humor in that.

Naomi,
Yes. The vast majority of authors would see the dark humor in that. I suppose this author is saying only Patterson, Robb, et al., will be printed in books. He expects the vast majority of authors who consider themselves lucky to sell ten thousand (or in some cases, more than that, but in the much-less-than-one-hundred-thousand range per book) will be published electronically.

I hope some of my favorite authors continue to see the light of day no matter how they are published.

I have that same hope.
