Breaking the Amazon Bestseller Code

Amazon Bestseller! If you’ve been in the authoring/publishing business for any length of time, you have probably heard that term. It seems like one of the Holy Grails of book marketing.

It can be. But do you know how it really works?

Telling people you’re an “Amazon Bestseller” is great publicity. It gets your book noticed. But there are a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about the whole process.

On Saturday, November 17, 2012, come join our headline panel on “Breaking the Amazon Bestseller Code.”

We have two authors who have Amazon Bestsellers. They’re going to give you some insight on how to do it and what it means to your book and its success.

Here’s what we’re going to start with:

  • What it takes to make it happen.
  • What it means on Amazon.
  • How much work it takes to do it.
  • Any ideas or misconceptions people have about the process.
  • Assessing whether it is the right move for your book or not.

That should be plenty to get our group going! There will be plenty of time for questions—so mark your calendar!

BONUS FEATURE: FOREIGN RIGHTS and What they Mean for You

Instead of having round tables this time, we’ve been able to bring to you another incredible speaker, Donna DeNomme who is going to tell us, “How I Grew a Thicker Skin: 7 years in publishing from Golden, Colorado to New Delhi, India.”

Navigating the twists and turns of independent publishing and book marketing has required becoming less impacted by outer opinion or circumstance, and more focused on inner direction and personal intention. Donna sold her first 1,000 books out of her backpack in five months and went on to be published in seven countries. She also weathered a negative review and the worst typo ever, seasoning a writing career that is on the verge of her best and most controversial work.

So come to the CIPA meeting on November 17 and get closer to becoming an Amazon Bestseller!

I look forward to seeing you there!
