Since most books don't even earn out their advances (or in the case of self-published books their expenses), the focus shouldn't be on what it costs to produce an e-book but rather on the monetary value we as a culture place on the experience of a good read. For my own part, I think it's invaluable.
Is it just a bad book, worthy of your disdain, or does it maybe trigger in you something you're just not ready to face? And yes, please support women memoirists. We need each other!It's not uncommon to hear agents at conferences shutting down bright-eyed aspiring authors with a simple, "I don't represent memoir."
