A Promised Land Breaks the Bookstore

I really thought that was a clever title. 😂

I wrote last week about President Obama’s first volume of his new memoir. Everyone knew it would sell well. But in reality, it sold 1.7 million copies its first week in North America. I haven’t seen the numbers in other regions.

I don’t know what the break even point for the publisher is, but the Obamas received a mammoth publishing deal a few years back of $50M+. How long until the two of them have their own imprint somewhere? It wouldn’t even matter if it focused on a specific genre or set of issues. It has to be in the works, right? What do you think? Did you get the book?
