I publish e-books - specifically sportscar buying guides. They have been sold online through Lightning Source -->Amazon. With amazon cancelling that agreement and changing to Mobipocket-format e-books I'm investigating what's going on in the e-book world. Hence my presence here.

Great to have you here Chris!

As a publisher, you may find a lot of people here talking about how much they hate DRM, and a push for various formats and features. I wish all e-book publishers would come by and "listen" to what the users of e-books think and want!

Would be interested if there's anything you can share about the economics of e-book publishing also, as it seems puzzling how expensive e-books are relative to amazon paperback versions, for example.

Sorry, hopefully it doesn't feel like I'm jumping on you! Actually, what I want is to make you feel welcome. Enjoy your stay, and it's great to have you here!
