Good thoughts, both of you.
Lilac, you do bring up a couple of points:
1) DRM - no thanks. would rather folks be able to take a chance and enjoy the story (or not
) than to be worried about counting pennies. I'm of the mindset that locking it up is stepping over dollars to pick up dimes.
2) formatting - and kind of DRM-ish. If someone converts the text from one format to another and does a good job of it, it would be great if that format could be "fed back" my way and offered as well.
