Starting Bid: $10

Notes: I will sign and personalize a hardcover copy of my young adult science fiction novel FAIR COIN, and ship it anywhere in the U.S. If you have an international address, you will receive a copy from Book Depository and I will mail a signed/personalized book plate separately.

Sixteen-year-old Ephraim Scott is horrified when he comes home from school and finds his mother unconscious at the kitchen table, clutching a bottle of pills. The reason for her suicide attempt is even more disturbing: she thought she’d identified Ephraim’s body at the hospital that day.

Among his dead double’s belongings, Ephraim finds a strange coin—a coin that grants wishes when he flips it. With a flick of his thumb, he can turn his alcoholic mother into a model parent and catch the eye of the girl he’s liked since second grade. But the coin doesn’t always change things for the better. And a bad flip can destroy other people’s lives as easily as it rebuilds his own.

The coin could give Ephraim everything he’s ever wanted—if he learns to control its power before his luck runs out.

Bidding is now open and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.


  1. What an extremely clever idea to reduce the international shipping cost problem. I admire it tremendously.

  2. Thanks! Someone else suggested the idea to me recently, and this is my first time trying it.
