Can an “Older” Book Still Become a Best-Seller?
I totally understand the quest to be a best-selling author:
- That title can give you credibility to your readers and to your potential clients.
- It makes you feel famous.
- It means your message is REACHING people.
While having a best-selling book is a feather in the cap of any author, it really opens a deeper discussion:
What do you want for your book?
Do you want a “flash in the pan” best-seller that hits the best-sellers list in a genre or three for a few hours or a few days – so you can forever claim the title?
Or do you want a book that stands the test of time and regularly and consistently shares your message, touches readers, and sells copies?
After having had both I’ll take the consistent, message-sharing book any day.After both a flash-in-the-pan bestseller and a long-lived top-of-the-list bestseller, I'll take the longevity any day. Click To Tweet
With so much emphasis on book launches and when a book is freshly released, what happens to books that are a year old? Or two? Or FIVE?
Can an older book still be a best-seller?
And it’s one of those questions that make me shiver and say “Yes!” because you understand that you poured your heart and soul into a book and maybe, just maybe, it’s not too late to have it reach people.
So, the answer is (drumroll please)
A book that has been out in circulation for a few months or *gasp* years can still claim a spot on the best-sellers list.
In fact, this is the topic of a very special evening session at my upcoming event, “Your Bestseller – Live! Market Your Message to Bestseller” – and registration is opening TODAY.
You’ll leave Your Bestseller – LIVE knowing what goes in your book (and what doesn’t) so your message can reach the masses. You’ll also walk away with a customized marketing plan for YOUR book.
During this evening session, we’ll be looking at what it takes (and if it’s worth it) to revive a “dead” book.
But don’t wait – registrations are already coming in and the room will fill quickly. Register Here.
