According to Nielsen Bookscan figures, conservative host Glenn Beck sold over 132,000 copies of The Overton Window in a single week–topping the bestseller list in the process. Follow this link to watch the thriller’s surreal book trailer.
Daily Finance profiled Beck’s literary track record in an article this morning, listing some serious bookselling figures from the literary lion. In a world of dwindling review and publicity outlets for authors, Beck has become a serious literary force.
Here’s an excerpt: “Beck has turned into a literary tastemaker and for the authors he’s interviewed on his programs and their publishers, the results are staggering. George Washington’s Sacred Fire, Peter Lillback’s 1,200-page biography first published by the tiny Providence Forum Press in 2006, has sold more than 45,000 copies this year, according to Bookscan. The vast majority of those sales coming after Lilliback appeared on Beck’s television show in mid-May.”
