Re: Book projects generally work out

"The production cost for an ebook is simply the author's time."

Copy editing, layouts, artists, all these take time, money, and someone's talent other than the author's, and who says that the only format is the ebook or picture book?

And even ebook creation is still not as simple as the techno utopians want us to believe -- I've caught errors in one format that didn't show in another.
