Re: What do my regulars think of this I think Yuk
Unfortunately, as others have said, charging commissions is pretty much standard practice these days. I have experienced the same thing with my band's CDs in shops here. Rather than buy them from you at a negotiated rate and then mark them up, they want to take them on consignment and take a cut of the sales price. No risk for them that way.
There's currently a big lawsuit going on here in the US over Apple taking 30% of everything sold through the App store on their phones.
Having bought a copy of Norman's book myself, I think it would be a strong seller at local libraries, museums etc. and they are fools not to stock it. They could probably even buy it at £15 and sell it at £20 - people would buy it in my opinion!
