comment Not happy with format of self-published book. How to proceed?
I understand, but I'm not sure about this 'pretty good' business. If I am spending the time writing a book, surely the publishers understand that I want it to be a nice object. You should never judge a book by its cover (or paper quality), but that saying exists for a reason, precisely because thats what people do. People often buy books just because of the format. I think its a real gap in the market for self-publishers.

comment What software do you use for writing and then structuring a book?
Is this common knowledge about Scrivener then? I can't believe there isn't any alternative that actually focusses on the structure of text. Indesign is a complete pain to use unless all the content and structure are finalised. Don't you think?
