So I was on the phone with my friend, David, who keeps me informed of things I need to know about like nice reviews and the date my new book will be released (Sept 1st according to Amazon.)
Anyway, so we're chatting about God-knows-what, and he suddenly says, "Someone is selling a collectable Would-Be Witch for more than double the cover price."
I pause, perplexed, and say, "What's collectable about it?" I have visions of someone gilding the lettering in real gold, and I'm just about ready to sign on to buy that fabulous copy myself, when he answers, "You signed it."
This response leads to about five minutes of laughing out loud on my part.
I quite doubt that the seller will find a buyer for the book at that price, but I wish them well and thank them for cracking me up.
Meanwhile, anyone with an unsigned copy who wants to convert it into a collector's item, contact me through my website. I'll happily send you an autographed bookplate to stick inside, and it won't cost you a thing.
