Gannett: Kristi Noem’s latest memoir received ‘dagger of death’ on New York Times Best Sellers list

Joshua Lisec is quoted by Gannett on how bulk orders may have hurt the book sales.

No. 1 international and Wall Street Journal bestselling ghostwriter of more than 80 books, Joshua Lisec, has previously provided insight into the ghostwriting process, and where some of the missteps and factual errors in Noem’s book may unfolded along the way.

“This raises suspicions that these are not ‘real’ book sales but rather the author’s own organization(s) placing bulk orders for the book and shipping to a myriad of different addresses to look like ‘real’ bulk purchases,” Lisec said of the dagger’s meaning. “It is considered a stain on one’s reputation in the publishing industry, …and you become marked for life as an ‘authentic fake.'”
