One Million+ Fans Eagerly Stampede to New Wall Street Thriller
BANGOR, Maine, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Less than a year ago, “Fifth Avenue,” a runaway, seven-month international best-seller by author Christopher Smith, took Manhattan and the world by storm. Selling over a million copies on such platforms as Amazon’s Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, etc., author Smith has followed it up with “Running of The Bulls,” a Wall Street thriller with direct ties to “Fifth Avenue.”
A former film critic for a large paper in the Northeast for 15 years, Christopher Smith has set the publishing world on fire and built a base of readers even veteran authors envy.
In fact, fellow Maine writer Stephen King embraced Smith’s success by offering this quote: “Put me down as an enthusiastic Christopher Smith fan. Smith is a cultural genius.”
Writing out of a large estate in Maine, Smith delivers a knowledge of financial markets and Wall Street that would make Gordon Gekko proud.
Available in both paperback and ebook format, “Running of The Bulls” became a best-seller on its first day of publication and is off to a great start. In the opening weeks, it appeared on the jumbotron in Times Square, a “nice backdrop for the theme of the book,” adds Smith. http://videostorage.prnewswire.com/storage2/photos/RUNNING-OF-THE-BULLS.jpg
Though publishers have expressed interest in landing him through his agent at a coveted New York City agency, Smith has gone further than any of his contemporaries by refusing all traditional publishing offers. He is fully committed to the future of publishing and has joined the increasing ranks of authors who enjoy the freedoms and rewards of self-publishing, which offer authors of Smith’s caliber a 70 percent royalty as opposed to New York’s standard 17.5 percent royalty. “With those percentages favoring an author, going the self-publishing route remains a no-brainer for me and many of my colleagues,” Smith noted.
The break-out success of “Fifth Avenue” and “Running of the Bulls” has allowed Smith the luxury of writing full-time and the opportunity to travel the world. While “Running of The Bulls” is a financial thriller and not an overview of Pamplona, it’s a good bet that a stampede of sales will continue to follow. The characters from “Fifth Avenue” and “Running of the Bulls” will collide in a third and final book in the series, “Park Avenue,” due in 2012.
