      For publishers releasing e-books.... that would be up to the individual companies and their respective licensing agreements. In the case with Star Trek, Pocket Books is the one that decides if a book is going to be an ebook or not; they may ask for the opinion of the author to help decide whether to do this or not but I personally do not think this is likely.
      So, does the publisher or the author release an ebook? If you write a totally original story then you are not constrained to licensing agreements and can have your choice. You could even make this one of the discussions with a publisher if you choose that approach. A publisher would be helpful in marketing a book; paper or e-version.Kenn

      I apologize, I did not think this too off topic since we have authors in this group; and I just wanted their opinion regarding ebooks. I had no idea that the publishers took the paperbacks and turned them into ebooks. I thought the authors did this themselves. Since this group had discussed ebooks before, I did not think I was straying off topic. Again, my apologies. Why Kenn would consider my question 'spam' has concerned me as I do not understand. I have been with this group for several years and have seen other questions presented more off topic then mine, and no one ever called the other off topics spam. Again, my apologies.
