It has just come to my attention that Amazon are selling my book – the garden of equal delights – at above the cost price. I am not sure how they get away with that – and I think it is equally likely that the extra will go to them and not me! Their price is £13.78, [later note, this does seem to vary as it has gone down by 4p on 1 July and by 8 July down to the cover price] but you can get free delivery even without their prime deal. Otherwise the postage is £2.99 making £16.77 altogether.
Triarchy the publisher has a 20% discount on the cost price of £12.50, making it £10 plus £2.50 for UK delivery. Being the publisher Triarchy always have the book in stock.
And the best deal – a place I consistently buy books – is The Hive (an online independent bookseller) who is selling for £9.79 with no postage costs.
- Later note on 8 July – The Hive sold out quickly after I put this post on and have just got the book back in stock again today, the price remains the same and if by chance they sell out again, you can still order and they send it once it is back in stock.
- And later again note on 9 July – The Hive has sold out again, but as above please order anyway.
- Back in stock on 10 July! But sold out in the afternoon!
Waterstones have the cost price of £12.50 but a two week wait.
