It is flattering to say, hey John Doe the great novelist is using LyX, but much more important is another question.
Is LyX the right tool for a publisher who wants to publish printed books and ebooks from the same source, which is what publishers want to do today. At least this is what I want to do. ;-) While there is no question concerning the typesetting quality of LyX/LaTeX, I still have questions concerning ebooks. I listed them in another thread. http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg95701.html You can write a bestseller with a pencil or with vim/emacs. LyX could be a publishing environment producing high quality pdfs and ePubs ready for distribution. Our target group are not authors (have a look at Scrivener to see what a program looks like that targets authors) but publishers.
