Amazon announced today that it was adding 2 new names today to its list of authors who’ve sold more than a million Kindle eBooks. Janet Evanovich, author of the Stephanie Plum series, and Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help, have each hit a million copies sold.
“Kathryn Stockett is the first debut novelist to join the Million Club, and Kindle customers were highly engaged with her book right from its publication,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “It’s as exciting to see Kindle readers propel a new author’s career as it is to see them add to the success of a long-time Amazon best-selling author like Janet Evanovich.”
Kathryn Stockett made the list with her debut novel, The Help. The movie adaptation hit theaters last week. Janet Evanovich is the author of 12 romance novels, the Alexandra Barnaby novels and graphic novels, and How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author.
