I recently discovered the Nightside series and am enjoying it. I just wish the Kindle version did not cost the same as the physical one.

Well, it's a tricky one. You don't really save much money doing ebooks instead of print, as nearly everybody still needs paid. The only easy savings arre in distribution. And publishers would quite like to keep books considered a high value item, which cheap digital versions would affect, in a similar manner to digital books. Maybe Steve can shed more light here.

Who? Me!

Not a clue on this one. Published are their own brand of evil.

They never tell mere author's anything. They certainly never discuss their costs or overheads.

As an opinion, I wouldn't have thought the conversion from the Word file (or whatever format they use) to Kindle or Nook or whatever would cost that much.

I can see an argument for having the ebook the same price as the printed volume. So one doesn't impact sales of the other.
