David Baldacci, Amanda Hocking and Stephenie Meyer have each sold more than a million eBooks through Amazon’s Kindle Store.
These authors join the likes of Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Charlaine Harris, Lee Child, Suzanne Collins, Michael Connelly, John Locke, Kathryn Stockett, Janet Evanovich and George R.R. Martin, all of whom have sold more than a million Kindle books.
Like John Locke, Hocking sold most of the million Kindle books as an independent author using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). The self-published author, who is best known for the Trylle Trilogy, has had her writing picked up by St. Martin’s Press and her writing has been optioned for film.
Hocking thanked readers in a statement about these sales. She stated: “I’m so grateful to everyone who has bought one of my books, and to Amazon, for giving me a place to share my books. None of this would have been possible without you. Thank you!”
