Now that PRINTED PAPER rates seem to have been abolished from UK to addresses abroad, we publishers and writers need to up our game to move real books about rather than just ebooks.

How do you mean, Des? Is it about to be abolished? Royal Mail are still advertising PP options.

Yes, but the PP options are exactly the same price as letter rates now.
A book recently cost me 9.90 to send by air mail to Canada, where until recently it would have cost about half that.

Yes, but I sell some books signed (for those who want them signed) after first purchasing them from Amazon, like THE LAST BALCONY. This change will hit that process. But I shall bear any losses.
