Books Published Outside the UK
Despite my reluctance to publish print books I published a print book today for sale at $ 6.99 and available on Lulu only.
When I went to check it out on other Lulu stores I found it was selling at £ 6.52 in the UK and Euro 7.45 in Europe.
If publishing costs were exactly the same in all three locations then I would have expected - at current exchange rates - prices of £4.86 and Euro 6.18
I wouldn't want to buy this book at £ 6.52 and still have to pay postage on it!
Are we to assume that it costs so much more to print a book in the UK than it does it France, which costs more than printing in the USA and that this is what accounts for the higher prices?
