George R.R. Martin joins the Kindle Million club

Martin’s Million

George R. R. Martin has joined the “Kindle Million Club”, having sold more than a million books in the Kindle store.  That’s pretty much the way Amazon puts it. I’m assuming there have been a million purchases of his titles in the Kindle store. Each license purchase typically comes with six simultaneous device licenses…but I don’t think they are counting each SDL as a sale. 😉

He joins

  • Stieg Larsson (The Girl Who…)
  • James Patterson (Alex Cross)
  • Nora Roberts (over 100 novels: multiple RITA romance award winner)
  • Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse)
  • Lee Child (Jack Reacher)
  • Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games)
  • Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch)
  • John Locke (Donovan Creed)
  • Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum)
  • Kathryn Stockett (The Help)

Martin is the author of the series, A Song of Ice and Fire, which is the basis for the HBO series, Game of Thrones (for which Peter Dinklage just won a best supporting actor in a drama Emmy).

Congratulations to George R.R. Martin!

He has some nice things to say in this

How hard is it to sell a million books?

Well, the best-selling authors in the world have sold more than 100 million books. There are probably more than fifty of those authors. Still, it’s a great accomplishment.
