Calling in the British Troops

After nearly a month I have noticed that “The Cosy Knave” sells reasonably well on and, and a couple of readers have come back to write some of those reviews which are so important for new writers!

The British Amazon customers have not really noticed that Rhapsody Gershwin is alive and sleuthing, however, so to try to attract customers, I have just lowered the price by 25 % to £ 2 (so when charge £ 2.30 I assume they have added VAT).

But what with the mysterious ways of Amazon, I need help from a handful of British customers to tell them about a lower price for my short stories “Heather Farm” and “Zed Alley”. They are available for free via, and there is no doubt that for self-publishers, free stories is one of the routes to visibility. And a very fair advertising campaign, I believe, as it enables readers to judge writers on their stories.

Tweets about the lower price of “The Cosy Knave” will be very much appreciated.


The picture above shows that I have just uploaded “The Cosy Knave” to a new Irish page, And if you are curious about all the wonderful and generous reviews it has received, please check my Cosy Knave page.

  1. Dorte, I’ve just looked at Amazon – The Cosy Knave is advertised at £2.30. I’ll write a review on it. Hope that helps.

  2. Margaret, thank you for telling me about the price. That means Amazon gets 30 pence extra, but there is nothing I can do about that. And thanks a lot for helping me make the book visible!
