tkotc_fcSunbury Press closed out a record year in 2015. However, sales remained weak through the holiday season. Fourth quarter sales were up 6% over Q4 2014, but it was the weakest quarter of the year, when typically it is the strongest. Sales were up 64% year over year. Overall, a great performance tempered by the lack of a hit new release at the end.

“Keeper of the Crows” returned to the top spot thanks to author events in Louisville, KY. Keith Rommel’s “The Cursed Man” benefitted from a large order from a Hollywood producer. Tony Julian grabbed #3 with Pit Bulls and #27 with Pit Bulls 2 thanks to Christmas purchases. “Mary Sachs,” last month’s leader, slipped to 4th, but local sales remained strong. The Joe’s New York release of “Gotham Graves” debuted at #5 thanks to author events. Chris Papst’s “Capital Murder” revived to #6 as interest in the scandal renewed. Bridget Smith’s “Where Elephants Fought” held at #7 due to interest in the Vicksburg, MS area. William Lemanski’s novel “Murder in Tuxedo Park” climbed to #8 thanks to online orders. Alan Mindell grabbed #9 and #12 with “The Closer” and “The B Team” as he continued to make appearances in the San Diego area. Mike Campbell’s “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” continued its streak in the top 30, reaching #10 thanks to continued interest in the lost aviatrix. Steve Troutman’s “Penns Manor” slipped to #11, as orders to the valley waned a bit. All-time best-selling author Guy Graybill returned to the rankings with “Prohibition’s Prince” #13, “Prince and the Paupers” #20, and “Bravo!” #24. Guy was very active in the 4th quarter. “Jesus the Phoenician” rolled back the stone and rejoined the bestsellers at #14. The book remains a steady seller most months. Ernie Marshall’s battleship history “That Night at Surigao” remained at #15 thanks to steady sales to naval historians. Brandon Musgrave’s “Hour 30” climbed to #16 due to college bookstore orders. “Blue Lines Up in Arms” by James Craig Atchison benefitted from author events, returning to the rankings at #17. J M West’s “Dying for Vengeance” found #18 due to sales in the Carlisle area. Dennis Herrick’s bestselling “Winter of the Metal People” granned #19 due to sales in the Southwest. Joe Harvey’s YA historical thriller “From Blue Ground” debuted at #21 and has sold well regionally. John Lindermuth dusted off “Digging Dusky Diamonds,” finding himself at #22. Joe Fair’s Vietnam memoir “Call Sign Dracula” slipped to #23. Charles Godfrey’s novels “The Death Machine” and “The Final Charge” were #25 and #26 thanks to sales to Civil War reenactors. John Cressler’s “Emeralds of the Alhambra” returned to the rankings thanks to discussion about its potential as a movie, taking #28. The Barbs’ “What to Do about Mama?” rode author events back to #29. Sheldon Munn’s “Freemasons at Gettysburg” took #30 due to regional sales.

The company released six new titles during the month of December.
