It seems just yesterday that Charlaine Harris joined the prestigious club on Amazon by selling 1 million ebooks, the 4th author to do so. Today we see two more authors hit this milestone, Suzanne Collins Collins and Lee Child.
Child and Collins join Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, Nora Roberts and Charlaine Harris in the Kindle Million Club. This club represents over one million paid ebooks being sold via Amazons store that caters to the Kindle line of e-readers.
Lee Child is best known for his Jack Reacher series of thriller books; “Worth Dying For,” “61 Hours,” “Gone Tomorrow,” “Nothing to Lose,” “Bad Luck and Trouble” and “The Hard Way.” His debut, “Killing Floor,” won both the Anthony and the Barry awards for Best First Mystery, and “The Enemy” won both the Barry and the Nero awards for Best Novel. All of Child’s books have also been optioned for major motion pictures.
Suzanne Collins first started writing children’s literature with the bestselling middle-grade series “The Underland Chronicles.” Collins continued to explore the effects of war and violence on those coming of age in the award-winning and bestselling “The Hunger Games” trilogy. Appealing to both teen readers and adults, “The Hunger Games” was first published in September 2008 and has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than 140 consecutive weeks since publication. “Mockingjay,” the final book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy, was an Amazon.com Top 10 Customer Favorite for both print and Kindle books in 2010.
