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.
Last night, I was at a party and someone asked me what “The Wall” was all about? “Fear,” I told him. “It’s about the fears we all feel and how fear can destroy you and the world around you.”
“In a way, it’s a manifesto for understanding that you’re as messed up as everyone else and learning how to get your shit together,” I said. He replied that he had only listened to “The Wall” once and didn’t understand it. I’ve spoken to people who say that whenever they listen to “The Wall,” it depresses them.
That’s exactly the kind of album it is supposed to be. This isn’t the trifling kind of music they make today, where everything is about a beat and everyone’s trying to be way too cool at the nightclub. ”The Wall” confuses you and depresses you because it turns a twisted mirror on you. It touches something in your soul that you don’t even understand because the connections to these very human and primal fears of abandonment, despair and depression are so raw.
That’s why I wrote this book. For years, I’ve been analyzing “The Wall” and taking note of how it utilizes so many different nearly subliminal tricks to create an impression on the listener. Once I began to piece it together and saw it all in context, it completely recalibrated my understanding of how creative masterpieces are constructed and the depth of thought that goes into them.
On the surface, “The Wall” may seem just like a story about a rock star who takes drugs and goes mad. That’s just the facade to draw you in. The real story is buried underneath and, like life, is made up of many layers. What it all means when you really look at it, will blow your mind.
Rolling out of bed at 6am to do an interview with the other side of the country is always a fun way to start a Friday morning. It’s always fun being on Bulldog’s show at WOCM. Stoked we could do it again to talk about TEARING DOWN THE WALL.
Plus, what do you think about his idea of doing the same for “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”? Hmmm?
