Slow Sales But Cuckoo’s Calling Still Unbeatable...

Aug 31, 2013 by

This week on the New York Times Combined Fiction list has many familiar faces that continue to stay where they are, with a few new faces in a mix, including a very heavily promoted book debuts in the top 10, as well as a teen book that has a bump in sales, but the movie adaptation is a big bomb (so far) has taken over the #1 spot on USA Today but no mention on the NYT.   Cuckoo’s Calling is the book that can’t be beaten. For the past 6 weeks it’s been a huge selling force, and again it’s #1 this week. Every week this book sells over 20,000 copies (both print and digital). Liane Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret that may be the big sleeper hit of 2013 is #2, the highest...

Aug 18, 2013 by

Welcome to this week’s mind numbing WTFckery!   1. Some WTFckery books and then their covers to make you gasp, WTF?!   Beware the mannequin looking hand that freezes!   Giddy up with your saddle horniness! Synopsis: There is more than one way to make a girl saddle sore. Sometimes just the right saddle horn can be a girls best friend. This is definitely not an old fashioned cowboy story, but there is a horse, a saddle, a hunky ranch hand, and a double hot girl out to ‘get lucky’ to make the pages of this book fly by in this 4000 word women’s erotic short story.   Good morning floating greek statue man!   2.

Slew of Successful Traditionally Published Authors and Debut Self Published Authors Make Some Book Chart Waves...

Aug 3, 2013 by

The top 5 this week on the New York Times Combined Fiction list are all very well known and respected traditionally published authors who have been around for many years. It should come as no surprise that Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling is #1 with Cuckoo’s Calling. Ever since it was revealed Rowling is Galbraith, the sales for Cuckoo’s Calling has jumped by leaps and bounds. This week is sold over 65,000 copies and by the end of this month I would be surprised if Cuckoo’s Calling will have sold close to 250,000, and possibly selling 1 million copies by the end of this year. Another interesting side note: Cuckoo’s Calling has helped the sales of Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy that’s #19 this week and sold 28,000 units. See, having a hit help’s an...

Cuckoo’s Calling and Other Chart Topping Books This Week...

Jul 28, 2013 by

It should come as no surprise what book is #1 this week on every book list. Starting with the New York Time Combined Fiction list, it’s The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling. These lists have to note that Galbraith is Rowling, like the public doesn’t know this? Also The Cuckoo’s Calling sold under 18,000 copies in hard cover, which seems low to me. I guess the majority of sales came from digital, so I would say The Cuckoo’s Calling sold over 50k copies this week, because Daniel Silva’s The English Girl is #2 with over 48k copies sold. I can see The Cuckoo’s Calling staying at #1 for a few more weeks as more readers and fans of JK pick up this book. Perhaps The Cuckoo’s Calling will sell a million copies and...
