Perhaps you've heard of a recent New York Times' Best Seller: The Litigators? Ask anyone who the author is, and they'll tell you John Grisham. But what some of these same people are doing unaware is going online and purchasing a different book with the same name.
You see, six years ago in 2005, Scarletta Press published its very first book, a fiction/legal thriller by lawyer/author Lindsay Arthur, and the title? You guessed it...The Litigators. Now we here at Scarletta are proud of our first book, in fact, we think it's a darn good book, but time passes and publishers are forced to focus on current and upcoming books, and less is done with backlist books. However, November hit and suddenly The Litigators saw a pretty big spike in ebook sales. We couldn't account for it, but sales kept increasing. And then the book received a new review on Amazon...it began, "I have read everything written by Mr Grisham." Wait...Mr. Grisham?
Ironically, Grisham lovers flocked to read his new work, but it seems some failed to check to see if he was listed as the author when they purchased it. Now the story could end here, but lucky for us, it doesn't. People eventually started realizing their mix-up, but instead of a public outcry to swap books, they realized what Scarletta has known all along: Lindsay Arthur's The Litigators is a great book! And thanks to John Grisham choosing a previously used title, more people are experiencing it.So if you're looking for a good fiction/legal thriller to read, we have two recommendations for you: The Litigators. They may have the same title, but each author weaves his own captivating story.
