Five years ago, I realized Amazon had bestseller lists, which was cool enough, but then when I realized I was on them, that was the coolest. This week, I am very happy to celebrate half a decade on those lists and my greatest achievement as a publisher so far.
Back on January 8, 2008, I was a bit surprised to realize that my crazy little book of Hollywood assistant stories, “Where’s My F*cking Latte” had been sitting on a pair of bestseller lists on Amazon. Five years later, it’s still there near the top having spent nearly all of 2011 and part of 2012 at #1.
In the last five years, “Where’s My F*cking Latte” has withstood competition from all the major publishers and a list of celebrity authors that rivals the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Even the ones that take the top spot for a while fade away, but Latte still remains near the top. I can tell you that in the time that I have been watching these charts no other indie book has come close to the success that Latte has had.
WMFL has definitely paved the way for my other bestselling books and I can report that my other big non-fiction books, “The Killing of Osama Bin Laden”, “Fatal Sunset” and “Tearing Down The Wall” have all been their respective bestseller lists every week since their release. Writing and publishing this book helped me launch my imprint and has helped define its success in the 8 years Glenneyre Press has been in existence. Latte definitely changed my life for the better and I’m thrilled to celebrate 5 amazing years.
Here’s to the next 5!
We had a tremendous launch for TEARING DOWN THE WALL yesterday, hitting #1 in Popular Culture here in the U.S. and Germany and #2 in the U.K. as well as tearing up some other big Amazon charts like Music and Art and a number of others. Also getting to #1 in Hot New Releases was pretty great, too. One look at the current Pop Culture chart and you’ll see books written by Pete Townshend of “The Who”, Neil Young, Keith Richards, Don Felder from “The Eagles”, Motley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, John Taylor from Duran Duran and Batman/Inception/3rd Rock actor Joseph Gordon Levitt just in the top 20! So to make it to the top of this list is really cool for me, and still being at #1 the morning after just kicks ass.
So a massive THANK YOU to all of you Pink Floyd Fans, Rock fans and those of you who support this thing that I do.
Tearing Down The Wall
Over the weekend I noticed that FATAL SUNSET has been charting in Amazon’s top 100 Travel books bestseller list. This list includes both print and ebooks so I’m pretty stoked that FATAL continues to gain steam.
I’m excited! The FATAL SUNSET audiobook is finally, finally available at Audible, Amazon and iTunes!
I know a lot of you like audiobooks as a compliment, or instead of your ebooks and print books. I’ve been on a push to get more and more of my content out in audiobook form and I’m proud to see FATAL SUNSET now available in so many formats around the world!
I also understand there’s a 30 Day Free Trial for Audible that let’s you get 2 FREE audiobooks just for checking out Audible. That means you can pick up FATAL SUNSET and INFINITY or another one of my books without spending a dime!
I know a lot of you out there love hard copies and I’ve gotten more than a few requests to release paperback versions of both these books… and yes, more MYN paperbacks are on the way soon…
