I'm not so certain about this. Some that I have seen, such as Norman Spinrad, seem to run pages through OCR and do a quickie conversion. Resulting in OCR errors and horrendous formatting. I don't think they've even glanced at the resulting file. Maybe they assumed that the software was magic.
A King or a Grisham may have plenty of money to hire people to do a proper job, but will the mid-level writers be willing to spend any money. Will they even consider the possibility or will they just turn to the magic software.
