PPB PODCAST: EPISODE 003

What is Your Why- (2)

One cannot simply claim to be a New York Times bestselling author. Nor can one simply claim to be a Wall Street Journal bestselling author. One can simply claim, however, to be a national bestselling author, or an Amazon bestselling author, or a Top Ten bestselling author.

Why?

Because beyond the bigger, traditional publications, the term “bestselling” is loosely defined.

One can be a bestselling Amazon author and support that by showing that she hit the Top 100 on May 6, 2014 for 3 hours.

Or, one can be a national bestselling author because…well…because he says he is and who’s going to challenge him on it?

But while authors focus on the word “bestseller,” it’s important to realize that one can BUY his or her way onto the major bestseller lists. And, in the end, unless claiming (or legitimately having) bestseller status is the end goal, it’s not what authors should shoot for.

In this podcast, Genevieve Georget and I discuss (among other things, including the current state of book printing and cover design quotes for Gen’s forthcoming book) the question authors would be better served by answering as they prepare to launch their book.
