Michael Connelly is the Latest Author to Sell 1 Million Kindle eBooks
The Kindle Million Club just keeps growing: Amazon announced today that Michael Connelly is the seventh author to sell over one million Kindle ebooks. The Lincoln Lawyer author is in good company—he joins Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Charlaine Harris, Lee Child and Suzanne Collins in the club.
“We congratulate Michael Connelly on reaching this milestone and are happy to welcome him to the Kindle Million Club,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content, said in a press release. “With the recent movie adaptation of Connelly’s ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ and the publication of ‘The Fifth Witness,’ it’s no surprise to see him join the ranks of other writers of popular series in the Million Club.”
“As a storyteller it brings me particular fulfillment to know so many readers are receiving my work through the Kindle,” said Michael Connelly. “Added to that, my name is now on a list of an amazing group of writers. I am very proud of this moment.”
In addition to the Mickey Haller series, which began with The Lincoln Lawyer, Connelly is the author of the bestselling Harry Bosch detective series. The next book in that series, The Drop, will be released on November 29.
