$18.95 vs. $58.02

I just received a notice that two first-edition copies of my book Dream Cruises: The Insider’s Guide to Private Yacht Charter Vacations, have been posted for sale at Amazon.com. The asking prices are $39.26 and $58.02.

This is fascinating, seeing as how the current edition is easy enough to find on its Amazon home page for the list price of $18.95 (which Amazon actually discounts to $14.21, and then offers to ship for free).

Apparently, at least two people out there in the world believe the first edition is a collector’s item worthy of a 200- to 300-percent up-charge. Maybe I should offer the $9.99 Kindle edition at a Christie’s auction!
