A Frequently Asked Question About E-Publishing:

What are the drawbacks to e-publishing?

The big and obvious drawback is that you may not have a print book to show people, and your book will probably not be stocked in brick-and-mortar bookstores. Distribution is often limited to the e-publisher's website, Amazon, and a few other sites. Some e-book publishers do offer print-on-demand services (or even traditional press runs) and can sell print editions of your book, but you're still unlikely to get any bookstore play. Also, many people in the publishing industry don't consider e-books published through e-publishers to be legitimate publishing credits; for them, electronic publication is barely a step above self-publishing, though you will find some e-book publishers more respected than others.
