You’re going to be reading a lot more in the coming days about Emily Schultz, a Canadian author now based in Brooklyn. In the wake of her 2005 novel Joyland being mistaken and purchased last year by many thinking it was a 2013 Stephen King tome of the same name, she decided to do something creative with the resulting monies. She launched a Tumblr that itemizes how she is spending the mix-up bounty.
Her latest King-cuckolded purchases are some IKEA items and a haircut for (we assume) boyfriend Brian. From a blog post by Vancouver Province contributor (and Schultz’s former colleague at Harlequin Books in Toronto) Peter Darbyshire:
Schultz says she hasn’t heard from King, although he’s welcome to comment. “If anything though, I hope my blog would make him laugh,” she says.
