It is strange however that when I changed the price to £8.99 some time ago, all the outlets (Amazon, Waterstones, WHSmith...) adopted that price and then, without me making any change whatsoever, they all seem to have reverted back to the original price at the same time... Any suggestions as to why? You didn't say anything about the version of the book that Amazon is still selling (it's got the old-style cover). They keep ordering the book from Completely Novel (I assume that's where most orders come from although nothing seems to have been ordered in August as the sales haven't appeared on the Completely Novel site), so why are the books that are being sold the older version. Again, any suggestions as to why? Many thanks. Andrew (more) and gained+3

It is of course up to the retailer as to what price they sell the book for, we provide them with a guide retail price and a purchase price (70% of the guide price). It is within their right to raise or lower the price to what they see fit. Any difference in the sale price and the price they buy the book for is kept by the them. So for example if Amazon sold your book for £30 and it cost them £6 they would pocket £24 and likewise if they sold the same book for £5 they would take a £1 loss. Hope that answers the question, Oli (more) and earned+3

Just an update on my previous message; Amazon are now selling my book for £9.99 with no reduction for 'free' delivery. WHSmith are also selling at £9.99 but I am unable to check at Waterstones as their site is currently down. Perhaps you could check yourself later. Another couple of questions while I'm here; Amazon are still selling versions of the book with the old cover (I updated it several months ago). I know this as I asked them to change the cover on their website but they did a 'bin check' and found the old cover version was still in stock. The second question is about sales in September; were there any? Thanks. Andrew (more) and bagged+3

For scenery I would recommend going for some drives up/down the coast in a convertible, highway 1 all the way. If you you like hiking, go over the Golden Gate taking a walk around the Marin Hill.s and finish your day in Sausalito. In the city you should definitely check out the Golden Gate Park, on Thursdays they have events at the museum. We enjoyed a drink at Bourbon and Branch, a prohibition bar. It is a bit wanky as you have to go onto their website and get a password to go in but the cocktails and atmosphere make up for it. Then I would check out one of the many street fairs, on pretty much every weekend. We didn't do the Alcatraz trip but were told we have to many times. If you are travelling around the area and can make it to Yosemite or Lake Tahoe they are well worth the visit - stunning places. Great to hear everything is going well. Oli (more) and won+3
