According to Amazon, John Locke became the First Independently Published Author to Join the Kindle Million Club. Additionally, as of June 19th, John Locke has sold 1,010,370 Kindle books using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). The Kindle Million Club recognizes authors whose books have sold over 1 million paid copies in the Kindle Store. What's even more compelling is John Locke achieve the goal in 5 months.
John used a competitive pricing strategy wherein he sold his ebooks for .99. At that price many readers were willing to take a chance on a virtually unknown author. It also made it wherein traditional book publishers simply couldn't compete with his pricing. With John's nine novels a reader could purchase all his ebooks vs. only one from a traditionally well established author.
According to Amazon “Kindle Direct Publishing has provided an opportunity for independent authors to compete on a level playing field with the giants of the book selling industry,” said John Locke. “Not only did KDP give me a chance, they helped at every turn. Quite simply, KDP is the greatest friend an author can have.”
Also “It’s so exciting that self-publishing has allowed John Locke to achieve a milestone like this,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “We’re excited to see Kindle Direct Publishing succeeding for both authors and customers and are proud to welcome him to the Kindle Million Club.”
