Building A Bestseller.

Recommended Posts

An interesting read.



"They got the first hint of just how big the book could be when rave blurbs came back from bestselling authors Lee Child, David Baldacci, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, A.J. Finn, and Blake Crouch." 


Yikes, if one of my books received rave blurbs from all of these authors, then I'd probably have a best-seller without the support of a major publisher like Macmillan Publishing.


But on the other hand, it took the pull of Macmillan Publishing to assemble the blurbs from these authors to begin with.



"Looking at what worked with the marketing plan for The Silent Patient, we recommend the following:"


Actually, I  pulled only one strategy out of this article. Write a stellar novel and score a generous publishing deal through a major publisher. They will handle the rest. There's little chance that a small-time publisher (or independent author) could realistically replicate this level of success.
