Local author trails JK Rowling in sales for fifty-third consecutive year

A local children's author has again come up short in his efforts to out-sell best-selling author JK Rowling--or any other best-selling author.

The unidentified man originally set his sights on retiring to a beach in Tahiti, but after his first book was published, he modified his goal to buying a DeLorean for his son. His current goal is to avoid defaulting on his mortgage.

JK Rowling was unavailable for comment, citing poor Internet connectivity in Tahiti.
