Re: 50 Shades of Grey ---- Who has read it?
interesting sandi, I had not thought of it like this and it makes perfect sense what you are saying. I am so aware of television media being used to change us and conform us to certain ways --- but when it came to books --- I didnt even think about that.
 Quoting: VhONey

I'm a writer, and believe me, the quality of a book has almost ZERO to do with hitting number 1 bestseller. It's marketing all the way.

So all that's left is to wonder why certain books are overhyped and why a lot of really good books are barely marketed at all, leaving all the marketing to the author.

Just sayin', that's a fact of the biz... you want a best seller, you don't really need to write a great book, you just have to Know People and Market out your ass.
 Quoting: Sandi_T

Sandi, its just alpha behavior and connections and know how. Like the pin system on GLP, Someone can get anything pinned and people will read it thousands of times no matter what it is.

The book sellers could market a Old man whittling his days in a rocking chair and promote it out the whazoo and millions of people will buy it. Humans are born with school of fish mentality, Survival means imitating your neighbor, cause in nature anything outside the school runs the risk of being eaten.
