That is an interesting niche. Although I would note these are also the areas where going it alone in ebook form is, relatively speaking, easier and more profitable--assuming you have the marketing and tech skills.

Greetings! As the founder and CEO of Authority Publishing, I would like to thank you for the blog mention. I would also like to add that I am an author of several books that led up to my launching this company: "From Entrepreneur to Infopreneur: Make Money with Books, eBooks and Information Products" and "The Author's Guide to Building an Online Platform: Leveraging the Internet to Sell More Books."

As the previous comment notes, ebooks can be lucrative in the non-fiction arena. However, I personally believe that there are benefits to having both printed books and ebooks available. A printed book (in the non-fiction world) is better than any business card! It opens doors to speaking opportunities, clients, alliances, etc. An ebook is nearly pure profit and it satisfies the instant gratification that many online shoppers seek. Why not offer both? It really depends on your personal goals.

Again, I appreciate the mention and look forward to building a solid reputation for Authority Publishing and our clients.
