It's Official: Glenn Beck Is The New King Of Book Publishing

Glenn Beck Books

That Glenn Beck is a powerful book recommender is not a secret.

That he is a powerful book publisher is something the world may be about to discover.

Earlier this year Beck inked a deal for his own book imprint at Simon & Schuster called Mercury Ink.

Today the first book from Mercury Ink — Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25, a young adult title — was made available for pre-order.

It is already #1 on BN.com and #2 on Amazon.

Those chart numbers are the result Beck having the author on his radio show, a email blast this morning, and a trailer for the book posted to Beck’s facebook page.   Translation: Fox who?

The lesson here?  Actually, it’s the same as it ever was:  If you want your book to do well figure out a way to get Glenn Beck to talk about it.
