Going Once....

Well, the eBay auction is over, and the bootleg advance copy of Mom's Cancer went for £9.50--that's £1.55 over retail, not including postage.

I don't think it was really a fair fight, though. Although there was more than one bidder, I happen to know that the winner was a highly motivated individual determined to get the book at apparently any price. No, not me! But I can promise it's going to a good home. Thanks, anonymous winner!

I'm still working hard on deadline and posting will be spotty for a while. I do expect to have some pretty exciting news coming up soon, though. Please check back.

Yeah, good home. I'm highly suspicious of that bidder. :) But it's s'okay with me!

I think you should turn to eBay and start selling them yourself under an anonymous name ... maybe this seemingly very dedicated 'anonymous bidder' will allow you to live the life of luxury you've always dreamed of ... or at least give you some extra tequila money.

Lynne, I share your suspicions.

Edward T., if I thought I could live a life of luxury selling books one at a time out of my garage, I wouldn't have bothered with a publisher (Heyyyyyy......!). Nice thinking outside the box, though.

I like tequila.
