Publishing Advice from NYT Bestselling Author

September 3, 2014 – A New York Times bestselling author of 11 books provides advice and insight from his own experiences. It’s Tom Woods!

From the episode:

“Americans don’t read non-fiction. That’s just a fact. The just do not. So to get them to buy non-fiction in any quantity whatsoever, is a feat of, I don’t know, Herculean proportions, let’s say. They just don’t buy them. . . . Now, if you’ve been on Oprah and she’s recommended your book, then it will sell millions of copies. If you have a syndicated radio program and you can promote it to an audience of millions every day or a television program, then yes, you could sell millions of copies. But we’re talking about a handful of people. The average author has absolutely zero chance whatsoever of selling even the tiniest fraction.”
