Bestseller Lists & What Actually Matters When Writing a Book

Most authors aspire to make "one of those bestseller lists" – the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, or USA Today. But what happens if you don't? Is the book a complete failure?

My previous book, Will It Fly, became a Wall Street Journal Bestseller after the first week, so I had expected Superfans, my new book launched 3 years after Will It Fly, to do just as well, if not, better.

In this video, I explore what it means to write a bestselling book, and what happens when things don't go according to plan – and the true purpose and reason why we should be writing books.

A big thank you to everyone who helped support Superfans! It continues to spread in all kinds of surprising ways (it was recently featured on the homepage of ProductHunt, for example!) and I'm so thankful for all the amazing comments and reviews that are coming in.

If you have yet to get the book, you can grab it here on Amazon (affiliate link):

And here's a link to my previous book, Will It Fly:

Remember that there are human beings on the other end of your books, your products, and your platforms – and it's for them that you create, and the better you can serve them, the more likely your creation is to soar. Cheers, thanks again for the support, and #TeamFlynnfortheWin!

    Ha! So glad I watched until the end – those bloopers made me feel better because you did that book spin SOOOOO well so it’s good to see that wasn’t the first take. Congrats on a great book launch …and with that list you don’t really know what did or did not happen to not make it.
