The Ascension Mysteries has sold 5,465 total units as of a week after its release, making it the 11th most popular book in the world according to actual sales data!
Hillary and her running mate Kaine’s new book, Stronger Together, only sold 2,912 units as of its first week.
What the…. ?
A top candidate for an imminent American election, with perpetual media coverage and massive marketing dollars, only sold half as many copies as our book?
The Ascension Mysteries sits comfortably at #11, based on real-world sales data from the Nielsen ratings, which appears in the Publisher’s Weekly list.
Why, then, did The Ascension Mysteries not appear anywhere on the New York Times list — particularly since the PW and NYT lists share 12 out of 20 titles?
UPDATED next morning! Updates appear as highlights in red. Bad dreams about reptilians… and stuff!
FIRST, THE GOOD NEWS…. #11 IN THE WORLD!
The Ascension Mysteries has performed nearly twice as well as our previous book, The Synchronicity Key, did after its first week.
The Synchronicity Key also debuted higher on the New York Times best-seller list than our first book, The Source Field Investigations, had.
This sizable achievement wouldn’t have been possible without your awesome support — and for that I sincerely thank you!
At the same time, for some inexplicable reason, all we have heard from the New York Times best-seller list, for two weeks running, is crickets.
Our publisher called them up to ask what was going on, and their answer was essentially, “Sorry, you didn’t make it.”
This cannot be based on actual sales figures — so what the heck is going on here?
THE REAL NUMBERS ARE FOUND IN THE NIELSEN RATINGS
Publishing industry insiders rely on the Nielsen ratings to tell them which titles are the top sellers in the world, based on actual sales numbers.
In order to see the entire Nielsen BookScan database, you have to go through a complex process including paying fees and a complex, personal registration.
However, the top-selling books in the Nielsen BookScan database appear, along with their accurate sales numbers, on the Publisher’s Weekly best-seller list.
This allows you to see “who’s who in the zoo” without having to pay monthly fees, get an insider’s certification and give up all your personal information.
As you can see below, The Ascension Mysteries came in at an astonishing #11 out of all books in the entire Nielsen database, at 5,465 units:
The link where this data is currently visible is http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/nielsen/HardcoverNonfiction.html,although it changes every week.
The category you are seeing above is Hardcover Nonfiction — and there we are at #11.
We took a snapshot of our ranking to commemorate this achievement!
TROUBLE WAS BREWING WITH THE NEW YORK TIMES LIST….
I started suspecting trouble when we found out we had not hit the New York Times best-seller list after the first week.
That was last Wednesday, September 7th. I did not make a big stink about it at the time, and instead chose to hold tight.
The Source Field Investigations did not appear on the NYT list until the second week, so this gave us some reason for hope.
At that time, the NYT said they had to calculate the difference between online sales and the other methods they use to create their rankings.
Supposedly, online sales is still a new and mysterious territory for them, and therefore those sales do not count as highly as their other methods.
Nonetheless, since we demolished the numbers for The Synchronicity Key by nearly double, it seemed like we had it in the bag.
I had this gnawing feeling that we weren’t going to get it, though. I was quite disappointed to find out that my intuitive data was accurate in this case.
NOW LET’S LOOK AT THE NEW YORK TIMES LIST….
Now we will look at the same category of Hardcover Nonfiction for the same timeframe, but this time on the New York Times best-seller list.
This list changes weekly, but you can see it in its current form at http://www.nytimes.com/books/best-sellers/hardcover-nonfiction/.
Here is the full list for the same time period:
HERE’S THE CRAZIEST PART….
The most astonishing part of this “mystery” is what happens when we compare the titles on the New York Times list with the titles on the Publisher’s Weekly list.
Here are the top 20 books from both lists, with the New York Times on the left and the Nielsen / Publisher’s Weekly rank on the right:
- The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo (Both)
- Hillbilly Elegy (Both)
- Between the World and Me / When Breath Becomes Air
- When Breath Becomes Air / Clean House: Exposing Govt Secrets and Lies
- Armageddon / Present Over Perfect
- Hamilton / In Trump We Trust
- The Perfect Horse / Hillary’s America
- Grit / Hamilton
- White Trash / Armageddon
- Crisis of Character / The Perfect Horse
- Shoe Dog / The Ascension Mysteries
- Being Mortal / Guinness World Records 2017
- Trump Revealed / Crisis of Character
- The Kingdom of Speech / Trump Revealed
- American Heiress / Grit
- Hillary’s America / Calming Therapy
- In Trump We Trust / Liars
- Liars / Art of Coloring
- Tribe / White Trash
- Powerhouse / Cookin’ It With Kix
TWELVE OF THE SAME BOOKS APPEAR ON BOTH LISTS!
As you can see, out of a total of 20 slots, fully 12 of the same books appear on both lists.
Here they are:
- The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo
- Hillbilly Elegy
- When Breath Becomes Air
- In Trump We Trust
- The Perfect Horse
- Hillary’s America
- White Trash
- Crisis of Character
Additionally, Shoe Dog shares the same slot on the NYT as The Ascension Mysteries did in the Nielsen ratings, #11, but appears at #24 on Publisher’s Weekly.
COMPARING ACTUAL SALES VOLUME ON THE TWO LISTS
Next, let’s take a look at the 12th through 20th slots on the Publisher’s Weekly list.
Pay particular attention to the total number of sales in the last week for each of these titles:
Although The Ascension Mysteries came in at 5,386 total units by the first week alone, it was beaten on the NYT list by:
Crisis of Character at 4,746 units
Grit at 3,918 units
Liars at 3,861 units
White Trash at 3,643 units
Grit came in at #8 on the New York Times best-seller list. White Trash came in at #9, and Crisis of Character rounded it out at #10.
The lowest-ranking book among these four on the New York Times best-seller list was Liars, at #18.
If 3,861 units can get you a #18 ranking, then why did The Ascension Mysteries get nothing at all after 5,386 units — fully 1,525 more books?
How did we beat #8 on the New York Times best-seller list, Grit, by 1,468 units, and still not appear anywhere whatsoever on the entire list?
If these lists were in any way related to voting, where actual sales figures count as votes, then this would appear to be a rigged election.
LET’S NOT RUSH TO CONCLUSIONS….
The Ascension Mysteries exposes hardcore government conspiracies, including mass-media manipulation and indoctrination.
We have heard directly from multiple insiders that a wide variety of “forbidden” intel appears throughout the book, and particularly in the second half.
It would be easy to assume that “someone on the inside” — i.e. the Cabal — made damn sure The Ascension Mysterieswould never appear on the NYT list.
The NYT does not publish how they determine who gets on their list. Their techniques are mysterious and their answers are vague.
Within the “fine print” of how they determine what goes on the list, we see the following:
The sales venues for print books include independent book retailers; national, regional and local chains; online and multimedia entertainment retailers; university, gift, supermarket and discount department stores; and newsstands.
It is therefore possible that this is not the result of any conspiracy, but is just a function of their not “weighing” online sales anywhere near as heavily.
At the same time, the total secrecy in which the ranking system takes place allows for the possibility that “edits” could be made.
HELP IS ON THE WAY…
We have a raft of great radio shows coming up for you to enjoy this week.
Those shows will expose many new listeners to the book, and get them interested in ordering a copy.
It will also be great for you to hear if you are a fan of this work, as all of these interviews thus far have been excellent.
Additionally, we have two different major public figures who are on the verge of stepping forward to help us out.
I will refrain from naming either of them until they take decisive action, but if they do both help out, we could still hit the list.
Again, the reason why this is important is not about making money — it is about the credibility that a New York Times best-seller ranking confers.
THE HILLARY CORRELATION IS OUTRAGEOUS
Hillary and her running mate Kaine’s book came out just a week after The Ascension Mysteries did.
As of right now, Hillary’s book has 106 reviews on Amazon, with an average rating of two stars.
As of this same moment, The Ascension Mysteries has 234 customer reviews — over twice as many — with an average rating of five stars.
UPDATE NEXT MORNING: CLOSE-UPS
We published this article in the mountainous wilderness of Canada, on my annual September trip.
I wasn’t able to see it online after publishing it, since internet access here is highly restricted. The page wouldn’t load.
Now this morning, very early, it’s fine — and I realized the numbers were hard to see.
Both books have gotten more reviews just since last night, and particularly Hillary’s — after its failure became a top story on Drudge Report.
That is exactly the type of publicity Hillary doesn’t want.
The book went from 108 to 173 reviews, and its ranking dropped from two stars to an abysmal one and a half:
THE LATEST REVIEW IS CONSISTENT WITH WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING
Here is the 235th review that just came in since we first published this article last night.
This is a totally random sample and just happens to have been the most recent one as of right now.
It is from Jason Parsley on September 15, 2016, entitled “A Meticulously Researched Book of Good Info:”
The Ascension Mysteries is one of the most anticipated releases of 2016. I couldn’t wait for this book to come out and David delivered!
The first half shows the reader David’s personal struggles to find his truth. This is an inspiring section that humanizes this great researcher and thinker. I got a lot out of this section as it adds to Wilcock’s credibility and it offers a blueprint for redemption and spiritual growth.
The second half of the book is an excellent overview and update. Old fans will be more than pleased as it ties together many data points David has hinted at in his updates and interviews.
New fans will be blown away by David’s rigorous research and credible reporting. Wilcock provides us with an excellent updated history of the solar system and a good survey of our current situation.
I got a lot out of the book on multiple levels. (FIVE STARS)
ASTONISHINGLY SMALLER NUMBERS FOR HILLARY
The Ascension Mysteries debuted with 5,386 sales, whereas Stronger Together only had 2,912 sales on its release.
This led The Week to dub Hillary’s new book as “a certifiable flop by publishing industry standards.”
You can see the article at http://theweek.com/speedreads/648837/nobody-wants-hillary-clintons-new-book.
WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?
Never in my wildest imagination would I have believed that something like this would happen.
Hillary is getting wall-to-wall mainstream media coverage, whereas The Ascension Mysteries and its writer does not exist in that world whatsoever — obviously.
Hillary has millions of dollars of campaign cash behind her to market this book — and yet we sold almost twice as many copies upon release.
Stronger Together debuted with 2,912 units sold and we came in with 5,386.
Had we sold a mere 438 additional books in the first week, we would have literally doubled the performance of Stronger Together.
THE BLOODLINE OF “KAINE”
This entire election has become nothing less than a surrealistic acid trip — and these numbers only make it even more outrageous.
Hillary’s running mate, Kaine, happens to have a last name almost identical to that of Cain.
In the Bible, Eve has two children — Cain and Abel — and they end up having a violent war with one another.
In Cosmic Perspective on the Defeat of the Cabal, now with over 425,000 unique views, we reveal how this group believes Cain was Eve’s child with Lucifer.
[I consider this article to be “required reading”, particularly if you have read The Ascension Mysteries. It goes into critical details that are not in the book.]
Eve was tempted by the “serpent” in the garden. Instead of being a snake, this was believed to be an extraterrestrial. Biting the apple was a sexual metaphor.
This was given a very in-your-face treatment in the recent Hollywood film Noah, which was very different from the story most people associated it with.
Cabal members are taught in their religion to believe they are all descendants of the bloodline of Cain, and therefore are gods among the rest of us.
Stronger Together. Teaming up with Kaine. Hmmm. Is this merely a coincidence?
The election is one of the things I will be discussing in three imminently-emerging radio shows — so stay tuned for that!
IT AIN’T OVER ‘TILL THE FAT LADY SINGS…
We have two marvelous aces up our sleeve here, and therefore it is much too early to declare a post-mortem on The Ascension Mysteries for the NYT list.
If either of these guys step up, it seems very likely that we will make it.
The information in the book has the power to dramatically change the world. That is why it is almost entirely receiving five-star reviews.
I thank you again for your support. If you haven’t gotten your hardcover copy yet, please do so.
If you do have a copy and haven’t written an Amazon review yet — which is approximately 5,200 of you out there! — then please do so now.
The Cabal is sure to sweep in with a raft of one-star reviews that try to tell you it is terrible — yet the real people reading it have almost all given it five stars.
A BRIEF NOTE ON THE PERSONAL DATA….
I was repeatedly asked by my Higher Self, such as in dreams, to share the personal data that appears in the first half.
This was NOT something that I wanted to do. I bare my soul and share data that is much more private and personal than most people would ever reveal.
It was very painful to write that section and I even had panic attacks as I was doing it.
Later I would go back and read it with fresh eyes and be able to see it from a vantage point apart from my own experience.
The reason this material was included is that it very poignantly illustrates how the Ascension process actually works in someone’s own life.
It also was intended to reveal that even someone whose life seems completely damaged beyond repair can still turn around and make significant contributions.
The vast majority of the reviewers get it — and a very small number stop reading before the second half and write mud-slinging reviews.
This, again, is why it is important that legitimate reviews from people who “get it,” and read both halves considerately, appear and have a voice.
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
Regardless of what happens from here on out, there are much bigger things in store for us than a number on a list.
Disclosure is on the way, and with it will come great surprises for everyone.
Those who have been investigating and exposing the truth will find themselves getting lots of unexpected attention from the newly-informed mainstream.
Our insider data suggests that we are finally going to see many of the changes we have been hoping for soon enough.
There is much more to say about all of this, including an analysis of the top films of 2016.
The Alliance has shown its hand in the biggest sci-fi blockbusters of the year like never before.
We will have much more to say on this — very likely through a video — in the not-too-distant future.
Some of that footage was filmed today in one of the most beautiful mountain views in the world, here in Banff, Canada — so stay tuned!
UPDATE NEXT MORNING: WILD TURKEY DREAM
I just woke up with quite the wild dream after writing the original article. The time was 5:16 AM.
I was helping a dedicated warrior fight a long-term battle against a negative force. At times I became him and at other times he was someone else.
We were never clear — I was never clear — whether what we were fighting was real. Everything appeared to be controlled by a giant serpent.
However, at the very end he was proven shockingly correct. While he was off fighting this battle, he managed to slay this serpent-like dragon.
What he brought back was not in the form of a serpent, however. I saw the bodies of three different types of negative ETs that he had taken out.
They looked somewhat like store-packaged forms of turkeys, including the color and shape. They were also wrapped that way, but these were no turkeys.
The dream ended as we were going to have to figure out how to dispose of the bodies. It was very intense and nasty and I woke up with a start.
It was quite a shock to see him suddenly come back and there they were, fully real and physically dead, right in front of me.
This was obviously related to the contents of the new book and events that we are told are already occurring right now in our present.
I felt that this was one I was intended to share with you, so there you have it. Hopefully the next round will be… more pleasant!
