Ordering and Shipping

Huge price increase?...

My 7×7″ 120 page soft cover book…

http://www.blurb.com/my/book/detail/923253

cost me £12 to purchase about 18 months again… the price for me to buy now is £19.49. Is there any reason for this 50+% increase?

Cheers

Steve

Hi Steve, Blurb regularly changes thier pricing for all books, sometimes they send a courtesy email, sometimes they don’t. I would guess on average they add about 10% to the price of all books every 3 months, so in your case, the increase would of been huge. Ive learnt this pitfall with using Blurb myself, so this is what I suggest to all blurb authors…..If you know you are likely to want a few copies of your book in the future, don’t wait to get them printed on demand, as you will end up paying more for the same product. What I do is every couple of months order a few dozen books (which gives you a discount, and even better search for a Promo code at the same time) this could make the discount up to (but no more than) 25%. good luck
