A COMPLETE 180
at Yesterday I was all set to use Gardeners and Waterstone, Today I'm doing a complete 180. That's after reading advice and information on-line. The mark up they probably want is 65%. So say I want £10 per book, they will take £6.50 of this and sell my book on to Waterstones for £4.50. Out of my whopping £3.50 per book I will have to cover my growing costs for everything. To achieve anything like a profit I'd need to print 2,000+ books at a cost of £20,000 not 200 at a cost of £2,000.
I'm going to see if an independent bookshops still exist and whether they might be interested. But time is running out for my deadline launch on Halloween. If I do go to Gardeners, which I'm getting cold feet about, they want a minimum of 3 weeks to consider my application form.
And I thought writing a book was nerve-racking I'm going to need balls of steel to get through this.
No comments on my previous post which is disheartening.
