FOR READERS & WRITERS: Hardcovers – Love ‘Em or Leave Them?

woman with hardcover books - deposit photos


Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Scott:

Back in the day, spec fic books from the big publishers often came out in hardback first, and the you waited months (or years) for the more affordable mass market edition. It was a mark of how much you loved an author if you bought their books in hardcover editions. Now? Not so much. So my questions today – readers, are there some authors you still buy in hardcover? What do you consider a fair price? And authors, have you ever thought of putting your own books out in hardcover (if your publisher doesn’t) via a service like Lulu?
