Re: Discount on my book

Bob Watson


I recently ordered David’s book from CreateSpace on November 29 with the cheapest shipping option to me here in New Zealand and received it on December 11, very comparable to ordinary airmail timings. So it may be worthwhile for any overseas buyers to take advantage of this cheaper option when considering whether to order from Amazon or CreateSpace.

Hello all.
I comes to my attention that Amazon is currently selling my book about Pan American Airways for $39 with free shipping. Thats lower than the price I get for proofs and.the base price that I was allowed to set is $59 and if I set it at that I got no royalty at all. Strange stuff.
Go to and search for my name. This may not last long. They do this for their own reasons. Who knew?

If anyone else is thinking about doing a book or CD or other publication I might be able to help you decide how to approach this. It was actually pretty easy, compared perhaps with the agony of actually writing the book.
There appears to be another David Crotty selling an MP3 of music. Small world.
