Why do ebooks cost so much? Doesn’t answer the mentality behind the pricing scheme. Reminds of Dean Smith’s myth of books as Events. Given all the books out there, it isn’t hard to write one. The first good one for me was an event, but now, not so much. My last round of editing was momentous as I realized how terrible my grammar and such was, but that’ s in the past as well. Formatting an e-book, also not so difficult. Covers- well I’m not an artist, but I don’t think mine are HORRIBLE.
Anyway, it is not as difficult to write, edit or format a book as New York would have us all believe. It does not cost $5000 for a cover. You are paying for expensive lunches, offices, and egos.
