Description

A girl with unique power over luck. A desperate man driven by envy. A mind-bending story of betrayal and fate!

Ten-year-old Nem has just witnessed her mother's brutal murder and her life appears destined for tragedy. Until, that is, she finds her mother‘s old green journal which holds an incredible secret. 

This innocent looking book seems to contain the power over luck. As she uses it, Nem discovers the diary keeps a strange kind of karmic balance, that in gifting someone good fortune she must steal another's first. All it takes is a simple entry. There's dangers though, and not just for others but also for Nem.

Decades later, the literary world hails William Barnes’ debut novel as a masterpiece. For some inexplicable reason though, his best seller success doesn’t survive his next two books. What frustrates and infuriates William even more, is that while he loses everything his undeserving protégé Orelia Mason is enjoying a meteoric rise up the charts. And this triumph of hers coincides suspiciously with his fall from grace.

So, William embarks on a plan, several actually, to take back the life he’s certain she has somehow stolen. If people get hurt along the way, well, tough luck for them. What he'll discover though is that battling fate when luck is not on your side can be a dangerous game. 

This is A Star is Born meets The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the consequences are not pretty. In fact, they’re darn well ugly.  

From Susan May, the international best-selling author fans are calling the new Stephen King, comes a dark and twisted tale of jealousy, revenge, and an extraordinary, unique power. 

You won't know who to hate and who to cheer on, and the ending will surprise, maybe even shock you. 

Narrated by Steve Marvel, four-time Voice Arts Award Finalist

Loved it!

Fabulous book! Original story line. Perfect narrator. I listen to 4 to 5 books a month. Sometimes it's difficult to find something "different". This book fit the bill perfectly. You know it's a good one when you look forward to being stuck in Austin, TX traffic.

Intense with a great ending

Best Seller is an original thriller with a great ending. Few books have great ends of this caliber. The chapters are well defined and intense,

The narrator adds to the intensity of Best Seller by bringing the ever-changing depth of each character to life. Multiple storylines make Best Seller something will listen to nonstop.

Jealousy at its worst!


I first read this book a year ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, so when I was given the chance by the author to listen to the audiobook, I gladly said, "YES"! I am not usually one to reread a book, but sometimes listening to an audiobook after reading the "real" book makes it even better. In this case, the narrator really made a 4 star read into a 5 star listen.

I truly enjoy Susan May's writing style and each of her books are wildly entertaining. Are they great literature? Maybe not, but who cares? Her descriptions of the evil that lurks in her characters' minds is truly scary and very imaginative. Sometimes throughout the book, I found myself looking around the room to make sure I was only reading, not living the scenes.

This is a story of a young girl, traumatized at an early age by witnessing her mother's brutal murder. After her Mother's death, Nem is given a mysterious green book that comes to rule her life (along with a lot of others' lives). As an adult, Nem becomes a famous author and her mentor, William Barnes, becomes a has-been author. The title "Best Seller" is very descriptive of this book.

What would you do or who would you hurt in order to gain fame and fortune? What if your wishes came true just because you thought them? Would you be willing to destroy another in order to get ahead? I think that all of us have known people who seem to live this way.....that's one thing that makes this such a scary book!

Many reviewers/blurbs have compared this book and Susan May's writing to Stephen King and I definitely agree. Her books have a little horror, a lot of suspense and are a lot of fun to read.

"There is frequently a poison in fortune's gifts." We would all do well to remember this the next time our anger and emotions threaten to overtake us!

What a novel

This is a book that will keep you thinking long after listening to it. It reminded me of stories like Monkey's Paw or any of the classic Twighlight stories. Is it fate? Is it chance?
Susan Day was able to wrap this up in a nice tight bow only to end it with a
frighting "Da Da Duh" oh no.
I think I may have found a new favorite author.
Steve Marvel did a wonderful and sometimes funny narration.
Definitely a great book of a book club discussion.

Something different

The book was definitely something different from the norm. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the narrator was awesome. I did want to know more about Nems family history with the book. Overall, I couldn’t put it down waiting to see which side luck would be on in the end!
