Since all of you have sent me the story of the “lady who’s selling her soul on eBay,” I wanted to just point out a couple of things:
1) The listing has since been yanked off of eBay.
2) Her story is really depressing and my heart goes out to her. She’s been through a lot and the “cost” of her soul wouldn’t have been enough to fix everything. I really hope she gets better.
3) eBay does not allow you to sell your soul:
eBay does not allow the auctioning of human souls for the following reasons: If the soul does not exist, eBay could not allow the auctioning of the soul because there would be nothing to sell. However, if the soul does exist then, in accordance with eBay’s policy on human parts and remains, we would not allow the auctioning of human souls.
4) Yes, I know the title of my book. No, I didn’t actually sell my soul. Yes, I defend it on grounds of being catchy 🙂
