Hillary’s Book Sales Keep Plummeting
Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 2, 2014 | Andrew Stiles

Posted on 07/02/2014 7:41:58 PM PDT by kingattax

Hillary Clinton’s most recent memoir is not doing so well. Hard Choices sold only 26,000 copies in its third week on the market, down 46 percent from the previous week.

It’s currently number 51 on the Amazon Best Sellers List, which is worth putting into context. Here are a few of the books that are ranked higher than Hard Choices:

It sounds like the commie lib ‘RATS aren’t as “ready for Hillary” as they thought they were.

The problem is that the royalties are determined by the profit the books make. In this case I don’t think they have even sold out the first edition. I suspect there will be no second edition or even a paperback. This one’s going from the press directly to the shredder.

They might send some to the Dollar Stores or the 99 cent stores, but those stores usually don’t buy stuff that they know won’t sell.

This is why there was so much pressure to boost the first week’s numbers - in publishing sales, each week is a scaled-down version of the week before.

So if x books were sold the first week, week 2 is 50% of that, week 3 is 50% of week 2, etc. (This is the rough rule-of-thumb for unexceptional books - exceptional ones obviously have more staying power). Adding it up, Hillary’s book will be lucky to break 200,000.

Plus, knowing the sales pattern, any attempt by Hillary’s minions to buy up vast quantities to boost sales now will look highly suspicious.

Yeh Helly got that 14 large advance ‘cankling around money’ from Simon got Shystered. They took it on the chin but no one’s gives a carp and serves them right for fawning over US Queenie and a bad misjudgement on their part. When lieberals lose money its a beautiful thang.

26,000? That has to be less than one book per retail outlet even if you exclude big internet retailers.

I saw it at Half Priced Books for $8.00. WAY WAY too expensive. You’d have to PAY me $100 to read it. Per Page.

Interesting development here.
Some dimrats who publish a book get huge sales to the unions.

Looks like the dimrat unions aren’t supporting her.

Wonder why.

So far she has been paid almost $90 per book sold. That is a wholesale LOSS of close to $82 per book. Not bad work if you can get it.

Hard Choices = buying her book and wasting your money.
Easy Choices = ignoring it and preserve some useful cash.

Supposedly there’s a lot of bad blood between the Obamas and Clintons.

My guess is she is not Obama’s handpicked successor so the unions are holding back because he hasn’t given them the green light.

That buttresses my belief that baraq will not be leaving after the ‘16 election.
The machine will nominate and elect Hillary. Baraq will tell her to go to hell. What then?

Will be interesting.

IF she's elected, she'll be sworn in to office on January 20th, 2017. At which point she can have him thrown out in the street.

Maybe they can use some material from that DSM book to help her through this.

A book comes out under her name because a book came out under Barry-Barack Soetoro Obama’s name before he ran for president. She is appearing in out of the way places to promote and sign her white wash book. She is desperate.
