Charlaine Harris Sells Over 1 Million Kindle eBooks
Author Charlaine Harris has become the fourth author to sell over 1 million ebooks in Amazon’s Kindle store. She joins Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, and Nora Roberts in the “Kindle Million Club.”
Amazon says that it was the great sales of Dead Reckoning, the 11th Sookie Stackhouse book that was released last week, which pushed Harris past the 1 million mark.
“When Amazon first unveiled the Kindle three and a half years ago, I would never have expected to be one of the first handful of authors in the Kindle Million Club,” said Charlaine Harris. “It’s been an amazing few years for myself and the Kindle both, but even more so to have my books available to my readers in ways that just a few years ago would have seemed as fantastic as vampires coming out of the coffin.”
Sookie Stackhouse may be Harris’ most popular character, but she’s written a few other series as well. The Harper Connelly series is about a young woman with a supernatural gift—she can locate dead bodies and sense how they died. Her Lily Bard series follows a house cleaner as she solves murders and tries to heal (emotionally) from a violent attack she suffered years earlier. And then there’s the Aurora Teagarden series, which is about a librarian with a talent for solving crimes.
Since Harris has stated that Sookie Stackhouse #13 will probably conclude the series, perhaps she will begin writing something new. What do you think? Would you like Harris to continue writing urban fantasy? Or do you like her mysteries more?
