    Jordan could give you the exact numbers, but more than one or two. I'm guessing the guy who attached his 27 unpublished novels for Steve to read was more than a little disappointed with the you've been April Fooled reply.

    My wife and I saw it and didn't bat an eye before we said, "what an awesome April Fool's Joke." It didn't catch us for a second because the voice and cadence of Mr. King is so distinct that it would be impossible to match it so perfectly book after book after book. We said we WISHED it were true because we would so try to get into such a sweat shop.

    I do think it is funny, the unintended consequences of being bombarded by wannabe sweatshop employees.

    Guess the guy didn't realize the magic number was "19".

    Did that actually happen? That's hilarious.

    No, silly.

    It was 97 novels.


    I figured that if Jordan had gone to all the trouble to set up fake email headers, I could at least play along. So I harvested the send-to address and emailed:

    Hello, Mr. King

    <carlislegreyson blah blah blah gmail.com> Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 9:50 AM
    To: steveking207 blah blah blah gmail.com


    Hope this note is finding you wel.

    Attacheed, you'll find my live's work--97 full-length novles of the
    sise your used too righting (about 1200 pages each). Pleas look them
    over and add me too you're sweetshop of horrers.

    Thank you!
    Greyson Carlisle
    Of course, I didn't attach any files at all.

    Sadly, that's very similar to some of the real emails we get.

    Yeah, I can only imagine.

    Next year for April Fools, y'all should run a script that changes all the posts to txtspeak.
