|From DOA to red hot!|
This is where the magic of supply and demand comes into play. Had you been one of the original 1500 readers who bought a first edition/first printing copy of The Cuckoo's Calling when it was allegedly written by some scrub named Robert Galbraith, you would have paid about $20. But now that everyone knows the book was written by J.K. Rowling, it's value has gone sky-high! First edition/first print copies are selling for several hundred dollars on eBay! (Current editions are now printed with Rowling's name on the inside-no value in that.) Kicking it up a notch, if you were one of the fortunate few who purchased a "signed" copy with Rowling signing her pseudonym "Robert Galbraith" you really hit the jackpot. These rare signed copies are selling on eBay for $4000 dollars!
It's amazing. A book that was originally ignored by most people goes from twenty dollars to nearly $300.....all because of a little piece of news! You have any similar examples? Pass them along in the comment section below....
