Popular blogger Simcha Fisher’s first book, The Sinner’s Guide to Natural Family Planning, became a bestseller overnight after Fisher accidentally published the e-book a month early.
“I freaked out when I realized it was live, but I couldn\’t figure out how to take it down. The next morning it was a number one bestseller on Kindle,” Fisher said.
Fisher planned to launch the e-book in November, to coincide with the audio version of her book produced by Audible.com. Fisher thought she was setting up her Kindle publishing account in advance, but instead published the book. Within 24 hours it was the top selling Catholic e-book, and the top selling Catholic books in all published categories on Amazon.
“I didn\’t even have time to think about it,” Fisher said. \”I still had to drive the kids to a birthday party, go grocery shopping, and get to the dump. It really hasn\’t sunk in yet that I wrote a bestseller.\”
