I am so looking forward to chatting with you, Yvonne. The last time we had real voices talking to one another was at the Southern Book Fair in Nashville! I know between the two of us, we'll come up with some really great new editing tips, to say nothing of why people need an editor and why they need to know more about editing!

Here are two things we will be answering for Molli:

I'd be interested in opinions on how and when "traditional" publishers will be including digital publishing in their plans, and, how will they promote this low-cost method of making books available in the electronic format.

Also (and yes, this is a second question), I feel writers will want to know more about how traditional publishing houses are opening their own self-publishing divisions, utilizing their editors and designers, but bringing the author aboard to share in some of the pre-publication work?
