First indie self published author joins Kindle eBook 1 million club.

Posted: June 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s official. John Locke has joined Kindle’s 1 million club.

Well, that didn’t take long since my article last week, asking who would be the first indie author to join the club. To think, I almost missed his name from the list. This is a boost for self publishing.

Read the news release here.

    it is very heartening to see that if you have the talent and the desire success is out there waiting for you. I do think it is brilliant that writers are now less reliant on the traditional publishing houses. I think this is a fantastic time to be involved in teh writing world even from the lowest of low levels that people like me inhabit. It used to be that it was all another country only to be viewed from behind a barbed wire fence.

    Lol, Diane, I inhabit the the low levels.But you are right it is exciting. There will always be winners in every field of art and not just because they are the best at what they do, but that will be for a future article. I think it is a case for such as us starting out,to set small goals and treat each one as reaching our own 1 million club.

    I have to admit that I walk around with a grin a mile wide if I sell one book and when I found that a librarby in Utah of all places had my children’s book Daisy and the Dust Angel on their recommended reading list it was as if I’d won a trip to the moon and back. I supose as the numbers go up the delight must perforce go down so there is great joy in small things.
