Locke has sold 1,010,370 Kindle books using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). The club also counts Suzanne Collins, Michael Connelly, and James Patterson as members.
Locke had this statement in the release: “Kindle Direct Publishing has provided an opportunity for independent authors to compete on a level playing field with the giants of the book selling industry. Not only did KDP give me a chance, they helped at every turn. Quite simply, KDP is the greatest friend an author can have.”
Locke has written several internationally bestselling crime fiction titles including Vegas Moon, A Girl Like You, and Wish List. He recently released How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months, a nonfiction guide for writers. Who do you predict will be the ninth author to join the Kindle Million Club?
