Self-Published Author Hits 1 Million in Sales

As an independent author, I love coming across a story like this one…

Self-published crime and western novelist John Locke (no, not that John Locke or that one either) has joined the Kindle Million club, having sold 1 million ebooks including nine novels and a New York Times Best Selling how-to book on how he did it.

I imagine a big part of his success is in pricing his novels at 99 cents, writing series instead of stand-alone novels, and having a fairly big catalog.  If you like one of his books for a dollar, you probably will buy all of them.

Note to self… reprice books, write in series, write a whole lot more, and get a cool black jacket with a popped collar.  Well, maybe not that last one.

What do you think is the secret to his success?
