For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Although it continues to surprise me, I'm often in conversations that run something like this...
Friend: Your novel sounds interesting, where can I buy it?
Me: Amazon, Apple, Nook, Kobo.
Friend: I don't like e-books, I like real books.
While I worry a bit about the trees, the price of on demand publishing (USA distribution only) has dropped to the point where I can produce 'real' books via amazon. So I have. In the interests of the planet (and sales)the e-books are still cheaper, but now I have 'real' books. So I guess that makes me a 'real' author.
