Oh my god oh my god oh my god!
I’m currently investigating as to whether it’s fake. I don’t want to do anything that might jinx this spontaneous wellspring of good luck in the eyes of the Gods of Spite, but I also don’t want to get taken for a sucker.
Edit: Curses. I can’t verify it either way yet, but I have a sneaking (okay, less sneaking and more clomping around in hobnailed boots) suspicion that someone is trying to fleece me. Also, the guy emailed me back saying my price is $120, which NO WAY am I going to pay. I contacted eBay security and they’re going to look into it.
I’ll keep you guys updated. At least my wig looks cute, if totally inaccurate. And hey, I’ve already found a way to use my super-connected ninja fan powers to get a normal copy of the book in just over two weeks–nearly a month before street date.
Oh, and related: the first two of three White Night sample chapters are up on Jim’s site.
