"Word-of-Mouth Bestseller"

Almost 10 months after it was first released, Ron Hall and Denver Moore's incredible life-changing story, Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together, continues to sell well. As Ron Hall told me in an interview, "Our publisher calls it a 'word-of-mouth bestseller.' One person reads it, then buys five copies to give away, then those people buy five more."

And that word-of-mouth phenomenon could gain even more momentum now that ... Tim Challies has endorsed the book at his site. It is such an amazing story, Hollywood is likely to scoop it up any day now. So take Tim's advice: "Why not buy it now so you can say that you read the book before you ever heard of the movie!"

To read an excerpt from Same Kind of Different as Me, which was written with the help of WORLD Magazine Features Editor Lynn Vincent (who is also my "blog boss" at WorldMagBlog), go here.
