Aspiring Author Attempts Own Auction
An enterprising author offers up his book for auction on eBay. The auction, entitled “Offering the Rights to My Book” starts with a bid of $5,000.00 and free shipping.
The book has apparently already been sold to a publisher and is set to be published this coming month (September), but the rights (unclear what exactly those rights are) are for sale. According to the auction, there will be no loss of investment because “50,000 MINIMUM COPIES ARE SOLD ON ON AN AVERAGE OF ANY PUBLISHED BOOKS. IT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH TO COVER YOUR MONEY AND NOT TO MENTION YOUR PROFIT!”
Plus, by buying the rights, you’ll be engaging a “great humanitarian help” to the author’s family. “I CAN’T EFFORT TO PAY MY BILLS ANYMORE. I HAVE FIXED THE PRICE BASED ON THE AMOUNT TO COVER MY UNPAID BILLS, MORTGAGE (MY HOME WILL BE FORECLOSED ANYTIME) AND ENOUGH TO SURVIVE TILL END OCTOBER 2008. ”
