    Patrick, my e-book experience is so limited that I can't give you a good answer. I have several formerly out-of-print westerns and horror novels available in all the e-book formats, but they've been out such a short time that I can't tell how I'm doing with them. My current books have been available in e-book format for a year or so, but the royalty statements haven't really been clear enough to give me much of a clue. So. As long as people are buying and reading the books, it doesn't really matter to me about the format. I hope to be doing some more promotion of those out-of-print books, and it would be nice if everyone would buy those. It would certainly improve my bank balance. As for the current books, any format that people prefer helps me out as long as they like 'em and recommend them to others.
