GRRM: laughing all the way to the bank.

Simon & Schuster and Random House appear to have emerged unscathed from the boycott threatened by Facebook vigilantes who demanded statements from both publishers that they do not have any plans to publish a Casey Anthony book (both publishers put up Facebook posts saying they had no such intentions whatsoever).

George R.R. Martin’s Dance With Dragons, published by Bantam, a division of Random House Book Group, broke this year’s record for highest single-day and first-day sales for fiction, selling 300,000 copies across audio, electronic and print on Tuesday.

Simon & Schuster also had a stellar Tuesday: Jaycee Dugard’s memoir of her time as a kidnapping victim, A Stolen Life, sold 175,000 copies across all book platforms.

    the taxpayers are not going to boycott any blood money from caylee’s murder to anyone whom tries wait and see. the truth is that Casey killed caylee and is a liar and mental case. she should be in a lock down psychiatric clinic because she is scary and could be a danger to others. now if she is suicidal that what she needs to do go¬†on kill yourself and see who cares. she is costing the state too much money and baez needs to be disbarred he has no real knowledge of defense attorney on his own and is a copy cat. we need to seek justice for sweet caylee and to hell with Casey that where you will go better now than later..
