Signed copy of Rowling book could mean big money

Not many people read "The Cuckoo's Calling" before word leaked out over the weekend that author Robert Galbraith was, in fact, J.K. Rowling. But a handful who did managed to get a signed copy.
 
And that could mean a lot of money.
 
Rowling spokeswoman Nicky Stonehill told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Rowling, the "Harry Potter" author, signed a few copies of her detective novel as "Robert Galbraith."
 
Bids for a first edition signed as Galbraith have topped $1,000 on eBay. Stonehill declined to comment on how any reader obtained a signed copy.
 
"The Cuckoo's Calling" was published quietly in April. It is No. 1 on Amazon.com and publisher Little, Brown and Company has commissioned a new printing of 300,000 copies.
