A bestseller is a book that sells a large number of copies within a short period of time. This is a good thing for an author because it means that he or she has a chance of selling more books in the future. However, it is also important to understand that the bestseller list does not actually measure how many copies of your book are sold in a particular time frame. In fact, it is more of a ranking system and the amount of sales you need to make it on this list varies.

The New York Times lists are published every week and are based on books that have been ordered from bookstores that report their sales to the Times. In other words, your book must be bought in large numbers from stores that report their sales to the Times in order for it to appear on this list.

While this might seem a bit arbitrary, it is the reality of how best-seller lists work. The New York Times publishes this list in an attempt to make the most popular books available for people to read. The problem is that the list can be manipulated by a publisher or author in order to benefit them and their book. This can result in books being excluded from the list that have a lot of potential to become [bestsellers].

There are some things that you can do to help improve your chances of making a bestseller list, though. One is to create a solid marketing plan, set sales goals, and work on your author brand. Another is to write a great book and get it published as quickly as possible.

Another strategy is to pay a graphic designer to create a cover that is eye-catching and compelling. You should also be mindful of how you are pricing your book on Amazon. Competitive prices can increase your chances of being a bestseller, and you should monitor your competition to ensure that your price is competitive.

Finally, you should use your social media networks to promote your book. Twitter is a great place to start, and you can also share your book on Facebook.
