My magazine has doubled in price!

Overnight my £0.92 pence English magazine has more than doubled in price! The kiosk is now asking 7.50 SF. I called and mailed the Kiosk company and after a week they have replied that it's the publisher who is asking for the new price!

I've now written for the details of the publisher, lets see how long that takes.

Does the publisher do overseas subscriptions , will probably be a lot cheaper.

Have you tried the clearing house ?

Re: My magazine has doubled in price!

Hehe, it was "Woman's Own" actually. Great way of keeping in touch with prices and saving me from gobbing off about how cheap stuff is, it would be very easy to rub people up the wrong way.
