HOW TO SELL A HAUNTED HOUSE is a New York Times Bestseller


Break out the celebratory puppets — Grady Hendrix‘s HOW TO SELL A HAUNTED HOUSE is a New York Times bestselling novel!

The book debuted #5 on the Hardcover Fiction chart, and stayed in the top 10 at #6 during its second week on sale. The New York Times itself raved about the book, saying how “Hendrix has created a wholly original creature in Pupkin, one as iconic as Chuckie or Pennywise….By weaving violence, family trauma and humor, Hendrix creates a texture that engages the reader emotionally and viscerally.”

In addition to hitting the New York Times bestseller list, HOW TO SELL A HAUNTED HOUSE is also a #4 Indie Bestseller and the #1 Indie Next Pick for February 2023. It was a Library Reads Hall of Fame Pick and a Junior Library Guild Selection, and has officially gone in for a 2nd printing less than a month after it releases!

We’re thrilled to see the very positive reception Louise, Mark, and especially Pupkin have been receiving since being introduced to the world. Congratulations, Grady!
