The hardcover version is the full version of the book. It costs full price. It is sold on the first day the book is available and marketed to the most enthusiastic readers who are willing to pay full price, and who typically want the prestige and ruggedness of hardcover. It is not designed to be cheap. It’s designed to be prestigious and enduringly rugged. ...

Prices of goods have nothing to do with cost of production. They are entirely determined by what people will pay for them. Goods that cannot be produced for less than people will pay for them simply do not get made. Hardcovers are a case of market segmentation. You have rich consumers and you have poor consumers. To maximize your return you want to sell to ...

The range is enormous, but the average income for published authors is spectacularly low—around $500 a year. No missing zero. Five hundred. The tiny minority who hit the bestseller lists will do quite well. Many novels sell movie rights. Most are never made into movies, but if you are lucky enough to see your book turned into a major movie, of course you ...

Minor corrections do not need a new ISBN. But you do need a new ISBN for new editions, revised editions, and different formats. A change in cover does not require a new ISBN. Adding chapters or paragraphs makes it a new edition, and technically it should have a new ISBN. That said, many publishers bend the rules because in the US and UK, ISBNs are ...

If it's a book for younger children, the pictures are an important part of the package. You'll have a better chance submitting pictures and story than story alone. For an adult book, having a cover is not a big selling point, and I wouldn't suggest including the cover in your submission to a publisher unless it's something so perfect for your book it will ...

If you have possible cover designs lined up and you have sample illustrations, it seems to me that you are in a much stronger position than someone who has neither. Send both to an agent. If he/she thinks your story is great but either of the other aren't this will be pointed out. However, if the cover or the illustrations look good, and the story is good, a ...

I think whether or not you can get the book “published” is irrelevant. I recommend you don’t even concern yourself with that. In the first place, you can publish it yourself, on your own website, or through iBookstore or Amazon. But perhaps even more important, the process of writing the book and expressing yourself and growing as a writer is the key thing. ...

You're never too young to write.

I think you mean "errors" rather than "errata". A book's errata is usually a list of errors that have been noted and are corrected on a separate page. You don't see errata so much these days—it's cheaper to correct the error and reprint it, and there's less of a financial inducement to print the errors on a separate sheet. 5 errors in 50 pages might be ...

Annoying as it is, I have often found at least this number of errors. I usually expect most code samples to be correct and work -- expect is different to finding they actually will run. However, I have found numerous errors in explanatory text. Often books will have online errata lists that you can consult. If you try it yourself, you will find it is ...

Shakespeare's plays are in the public domain. For more recent works, such as works produced in the past 100 years, check the copyright laws of the country where you plan to publish your works and consult a lawyer. To gain background in this area, I recommend reading the Wikipedia articles on Copyright and International copyright treaties.

As @rolfedh mentions: You are comparing a work from a publishing house with works from Kindle Direct Publishing. Different content sources = different legal contract. Amazon seems deliberately vague to help bolster its position on accepting or rejecting KDP works: Pornography : "We don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic ...

Zazzle and ImageKind I know offer color poster prints. I imagine other online Print on Demand services do.

The first is most often seen. Most journals have their own specifications for citations, but that one is very common. Also note you don't always have to place them at the end of a sentence. See here for examples.
