Michael Connelly is the Seventh Writer to Sell 1 Million Kindle eBooks

Amazon made the announcement that mystery writer Michael Connelly has sold more than one million Kindle eBooks. This makes him the seventh writer to be inducted into the “Kindle Million Club.”

Connelly (pictured, via) recently published the twenty third book in the Mickey Haller series, The Fifth Witness. He had this statement in the press release: “As a storyteller it brings me particular fulfillment to know so many readers are receiving my work through the Kindle. Added to that, my name is now on a list of an amazing group of writers. I am very proud of this moment.”

Last week, Hunger Games novelist Suzanne Collins became the first children’s author and the sixth member of the “Kindle Million Club.” The first inductee was Millennium trilogy author Stieg Larsson followed by James Patterson, Nora Roberts, Charlaine Harris, and Lee Child.
