Suzanne Collins Becomes First Children’s Author To Sell 1 Million Kindle eBooks

Novelists Lee Child and Suzanne Collins joined the “Kindle Million Club” today, the fifth and sixth authors to sell more than one million eBooks through Amazon.

According to Amazon’s announcement, Collins became the first children’s author to achieve this digital feat. Other members of the club include Stieg Larsson, James Patterson, Nora Roberts and Charlaine Harris.

Thriller novelist Child added this comment: ““I started writing at the same time Amazon first went live, back in 1995, and it has been a thrill to move forward together through the years and through the generations of new technology … I’m really delighted to have hit this current milestone, and I look forward to many more together.”
