Love Death and Whiskey - on Amazon at £1.17, including postage...
In the past I have shared with friends my mix of amazement and consternation at Amazon's pricing of my song lyric book, Love Death and Whiskey. And there was some interest in the saga...
Last year the Amazon price seemed to have settled down at around £3 per copy.
Ok. Now amazement, consternation, bafflement... Amazon is selling the book at £1.17 including postage. Including postage.
This, of course, is a price far below the price I can manage. It practically guarantees that no other book shop will stock the book. What will it do for sales? And, if copies do sell, what part of that tiny price will eventually reach me?
Well, I wanted my song lyrics to be in the hands of singers and musicians. The book works as a basket of samples. I guess that I should, maybe, in the end, be happy about this strange Amazon development. But still baffled.
