The Truth about Electronic Books: An Electronic Publisher's Perspective

Sandy Cummins.

From interviews with variety of independent epublishers we investigate where the electronic book industry is going at this time.

We will look at the REAL sales figures and trends, which book formats sell the best, where distribution really affects sales and the future planning of publishers already working in the industry.

We also look at professional organisations that support electronic publishing.
