Upcoming Webinar: Behind the Bestseller

Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look Into the Workings of Bestseller Lists

Bestseller lists have long been a publishing industry fixture and a major goal for authors, the shiny pinnacle of a mountain made up of many other challenges and accomplishments. But in recent times, bestseller lists have been in flux — from the hiatus and re-emergence (in partnership with independent bookstores) of the USA Today list to the Wall Street Journal’s announcement that it would be dropping its bestseller lists.

If you’ve wondered just what’s next for bestseller lists and what the latest bestseller strategy for authors should be, you won’t want to miss Smith Publicity’s first webinar of 2024, Behind the Bestseller: A Look at the Inner Workings and Evolving Nature of Bestseller Lists on Wednesday, January 24 at 2 p.m. EST.

This hour-long session will feature President Marissa Eigenbrood and expert guest Andrea DeWerd, founder of the future of agency, to discuss the current state of the bestseller landscape, updated bestseller strategy, and what the future of bestseller lists may look like. Attendees will receive a special behind-the-scenes look at bestseller lists and the role they play today in the publishing industry. At the end of the session, there will be time for a Q&A, and attendees are encouraged to bring their questions about bestseller lists to ask the experts.
