“Where’s the best place to buy someone’s book?”

June 27, 2011 @ 3:20 pm | Filed under:

If you’ve ever wondered about that question, this post tackles it honestly and clearly. For example:

Another thing you may not know – sales in book stores are tracked very closely by an author’s publisher. They want to know how many copies were sold the first week it was out. The first month it was out. The first three months. And six. And twelve. You get the picture.

These numbers come into play the next time we’ve written a book and want to try and sell it to our publisher. Sometimes, these numbers MAKE OR BREAK an author’s career.
