I have a proposal, and I need your input!

However much work I have to do towards formatting takes away from actual writing time, so — Nook and Kindle formatted files sent to email? (in which case I would beg forgiveness for the first however many installments as I learn my way around the process) Create a newsletter type thing and put the work on there? Do I include cover…
