Poor Mary Cheney (or perhaps it’s poor Simon & Schuster, which reportedly paid her a $1 million advance). It seems that even calling John Kerry a “son of a bitch” and John Edwards a “total slime” wasn’t good enough to sell her book.
(The Advocate, via Huffington Post) Mary Cheney’s book sells fewer than 6,000 copies since release
Despite saturation media coverage when it was published a month ago, Mary Cheney’s book Now It’s My Turn has tanked at bookstores. Published by a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, the memoir has sold fewer than 6,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen Bookscan.
The book’s sales have declined in each of the four weeks since its release, to only 574 copies sold for the week ending June 3. That’s 77% fewer than its first-week sales of 2,445.
