I keep hearing conflicting information about these new regulations. Amazon have a system in place, so “The Dodo Dragon and other stories” will only be on sale via Amazon until further notice.
The EU has changed the VAT regulations for downloads: the VAT will now be charged at the rate of the country where the buyer lives (instead of the seller).
This is a problem for me. I can’t carry on offering The Dodo Dragon as a download unless I find some way to automatically charge VAT at the correct rate for customers who might be in Estonia, Iceland, Ireland or Greece.
Luckily, this doesn’t apply if I email the book to the customer. I’d like to find a way of automating this, but if you want to buy The Dodo Dragon, please email me or use the contact form.
I’m back. Normal service resumed.
I’M ON HOLIDAY, AND NO PAPERBACKS WILL SHIP UNTIL 25TH AUGUST.
If that’s too slow and you want to cancel, just email me at Dragon Tree Publishing <email@example.com> and I’ll give you a refund.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
A very enjoyable book
Nicely illustrated by Jorge Beda and Mercedes Martin; many of the delightful interior illustrations make me think of old wood-cuts.
This is meant to be a collection of stories for children, and I’m sure the grandchildren will enjoy it, but I liked it, too. Crosby presents a dozen stories, closely tied to the history and legends of La Palma in the Canary Islands. The mysterious seer’s stone is a unifying thread for the stories, which cover events from 1493 to a little past the present day. Of course, as a fantasy and science fiction writer, Crosby throws in such elements as dragons, time travel, space ships, and visiting aliens.

On Wednesday 9th, La Palma’s Island Council presented plaques to local businesses involved in astrotourism – and Dragon Tree Publishing got one!
Everybody else also got a copy of “Una espectacular ventana al universo” but it would have been rather silly to present DTP with one, don’t you think?
