    "Excellent!" I'm halfway through this book and completely in love with it. The tips are fantastic, and it answers pretty much any big (and little) question I had so far (the one exception being my expected profit margin, but one does not discuss such things :) ). Definitely recommended if you're at all considering the book business. I love the cost breakdown, Ms. Chandler, definitely a few things that hadn't occurred to me.
