The Two Bestselling Books on Amazon...

Recommended Posts

....just in time for Black History Month

 

Seriously, I can see the appeal for both books.  Like most literate Americans I read To Kill a Mockingbird.  I saw the film as well, and enjoyed both.  Until now Lee never published another book.  This book was written before Mockingbird, but was originally rejected by publishers.

 

Wilder wrote Little House on the Prairie, which was also a popular TV series.   I did not read her book, or enjoy the TV series, but millions of other people did.

Today Amazon sells about 75% of the new books sold online.  All indications are this trend will continue in their favor.  If anyone believes this is a good thing, they are woefully naive.  

 

If you follow the link to the bestselling books in Amazon, you won't find any books by African American novelist.  

 

There is a saying, "if you can't beat 'em join 'em."  Maybe I'll start promoting books like these.  To subsidize the books written by Black folks.

I see nothing wrong with shifting your coverage to be more inclusive. 18 years in and you should be the gold standard for industry news and info. You should be pulling seminars and conferences together that allow this venture to be a financial windfall. I know how important it is to give us a platform, but if we aren't sharing the site and participating in building it maybe it's time to expand.

I don't know. I can't talk because I haven't advertised with you in a while. Which is a problem. Because in the past five years I've paid for 20 dollar boost posts and 25 dollar facebook ads. Maybe that's the wave of the future for you: burst packages. You can continue with black books but offer smaller more immediate campaigns for authors. Once again, I don't know. It's frustrating.
