News-Record.com - Greensboro, North Carolina: Business: Amazon opens doors to small publishers

One by one, the big houses in New York looked at “Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles,” but eventually said no, suggesting his theory that signals outside cells control genes was too radical for mainstream readers.

“I wasted a whole year with them,” Lipton fumed.

Then he signed on with an independent press that relies heavily on Amazon.com. Since then, he and his publisher say, more than 42,000 copies have sold in six months.

My new book will be about how signals outside cells are telling me to kill my neighbor’s dog… I will make a fortune.
