This holiday season has been great for me. In fact, I’ve picked up a new title… “Best Selling Author.”
That’s right, after almost three years of writing and publishing, I’ve got a real winner on my hands with my book: Bourbon Mixology: 50 Bourbon Cocktails from 50 Iconic Bars.
As an author, your books are like your children: you love all of them equally. I don’t write something thinking this one will be just okay, but the next one is going to be the big hit. Ultimately, it’s not the author who decides what’s a hit, it’s you, the reader.
This book must have been the perfect storm:
- It covers a hot topic with bourbon.
- It incorporates cool locations with the 50 bars.
- It has the signature bourbon cocktail from these iconic bars.
- It’s a great price point at under $10.
I think all of these things came together to make it the perfect holiday gift giving item for the whiskey fan.
Being an author is awesome. You get to create books which start as ideas in your head.
I have to say, though, being a bestselling author who creates books which came from ideas in your head is even better!
