An exploration of that mysterious place in publishing where art and commerce either clash, mesh, or both. Along the way, a wide range of authors - from the literary greats to today's commercial superstars -editors, agents and publishers share their thoughts, insights and experiences: what inspires writers? (John Steinbeck, for example, wrote every novel as though it were his last, and death was imminent.) Why are some books successful and appreciated, whilst others fall into oblivion? The answers are often elusive, never absolute.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Informative, interesting and entertaining--Read it! 15. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
All book lovers should read "The Making of a Bestseller." All hopeful authors must read it. This isn't another one of those formulaic, "how to" texts. This author has thoroughly researched the publishing industry, and the book abounds with provocative and inspirational experiences. Aspiring authors will be heartened to find the impressive company they're in as the voices of well-known writers speak of the trials and tribulations encountered on the road to publication. Mr. Vanderbilt's book not only provides encouragement to hopeful authors, it presents a frank and invaluable overview of the publication process. No reader or writer should miss this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Celebration of Creative Writing 27. März 2000
Von Dan Poynter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This hand-wringing book is about bestsellers; it does not (and can not) define how bestsellers are made. This celebration of creative writing is about writers paying their dues and being discovered. Vanderbilt discusses the effects titles, advertising, author name recognition, perseverance, bestseller lists, reviews, testimonials and blind, dumb luck had on books that made it to the charts. It is a well-written, scholarly study of successful literature with references and footnotes. This book makes a couple of references to nonfiction but is almost entirely about fiction. If you like this book, you will also like Seven Strategies in Every Bestseller by Tam Mossman. I liked them both. Dan Poynter, author of 82 books (nonfiction). DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spectacularly Interesting! 7. Februar 2001
Von "maggy9531" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book was lent to me by a University Professor who recommended it as the most comprehensive and thought-provoking study of the publishing industry he's read in years. I couldn't agree more. As a potential author, I found The Making of a Bestseller an encouraging and thought-provoking work. It offers a clear look into the world of publishing, therefore, demystifying the process for those of us just embarking on this sometimes frustrating journey. Insightful and uplifting, one cannot fail to come away without a great deal of encouragement. I, for one, found myself wondering, if F. Scott Fitzgerald faced similar adversity and prevailed, why can't I? One thing we writers must learn: A thick skin is required in this business. This book is not for the unrealistic or faint-hearted. But neither is a career in writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen READ IT 5. Juli 2000
Von Max Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is a great book and I thought I'd say so. I found an interview with the author on the internet and bought the book. I wondered why I didn't see it interviewed in any of the publications I subscribe to--especially Writer's Digest. Do we really need another Harry Potter review? Everybody loves those books--they sell themselves. Hey reviewers--We want to hear about books like this one!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful, provocative look into the world of publishing. 5. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Mr. Vanderbilt's book is fascinating for anyone interested in the world of books. It is well-researched and documented yet highly readable and often entertaining. Provocative issues are raised about the simultaneous need for both talent and luck in the writing process. Many interesting insights into specific experiences of authors and titles read like "inside Hollywood" vignettes. REALLY A GOOD READ!
