RE: Amazon has banned Game and 8 of my other books
I'm finally doing direct paperback sales of Game from my web store, starting with customers in Canada, United States, and Mexico. If you're from those countries, you can click the paperback option on the sales page:

https://www.rooshvstore.com/books/game/

I actually make less money selling direct than from a bookstore because of fulfillment costs, but I'm eager to get rid of a middleman who can shut me down. I'm also experimenting with combo deals that include physical and digital products. Right now I'm doing a special where you can get the paperback, audiobook, and ebook for $35 plus shipping. The paperback alone is $25 plus shipping.

RE: Amazon has banned Game and 8 of my other books
One issue I'm facing is that my costs to ship direct are higher than a bookstore. For example, to Europe, it costs $10.80 to ship Game. This doesn't include my fulfillment costs, which I absorb. I can absorb another $2 to shipping, bringing it down to $8.80, but that's still not cheap. One of the reasons it's expensive is because the book is over 1 pound. That's the cut off for a large rate increase.

(USA shipping is relatively cheap. I can offer Media Mail for $1.25 at the moment.)

So do I send European customers to a international store like Book Depository (where many customers complain that orders are delayed or cancelled), but where shipping is lower, or do I send them to my store? It would be too confusing to do both. One benefit of my store is that I can give them upgrades to combos they may like.

Picked Game up recently in paperback from Alibris. Should be a fun read. Had a friend recently break up with his girlfriend and he's bummed out - offered him to borrow the book. Hopefully he takes me up on it.

True; I just saw that it is part of Amazon. I suppose you could give it a try just to force their hand into an act of overt censorship - the more they react, the more people notice. Obviously you can't plan on generating much revenue that way.

There have to be other drop shipping type services you can use in the EU, no?

I ordered my second copy from Blackwell's which also offers free shipping and received it without problems (receiving location within EU). It took a bit longer than previously through Book Depository, but there were Christmas and New Years holidays in between, so I guess that explains the delay.

How much did Blackwell's charge you? I'm seeing a price of $31, which is $6 over the regular price.

So Blackwell's is selling the Game paperback to UK customers for 35.25 Pounds and shipping is free. Total price in USD is $46.38.

Through my store for UK customers, the price is $25 plus $8.52 shipping. Total is $33.52. That's a considerable savings. For USA customers, shipping starts at $1.50.

I paid 22.45 EUR (in December). I checked prices on the website now and it says that a paperback is now 41,75€ and hardback 29,92€ Huh

Many sites price-match Amazon. If there is no Amazon listing, they charge a much higher price.
