While the debates rage on as to whether or not people should even continue to read Dead Reckoning, the latest book in Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series (read Laurie Gold's Harris break-up, Natasha Carty's rant post-read, and Aliza Mann's continued satisfaction), Amazon.com confirms that Charlaine Harris is the fourth author to sell over 1 million Kindle books, “becoming the latest member of the 'Kindle Million Club.'” Stieg Larsson, James Patterson and Nora Roberts are the previous three.
Huh. Look at that; genre authors (crime, romance, paranormal) sell the most books. And two of this elite club are women; that's 50%, not bad for a genre that gets dissed more often than not.
So say what you want to about Charlaine Harris, the woman is representing for the genre.
(And, because Waiting Sucks, here's the True Blood Season Four trailer).
