Barbara Mertz, 1927
An American author, Mertz has published under three names. She wrote her Georgetown trilogy as well as stand alone Gothic and supernatural novels as Barbara Michaels and writes the Amelia Peabody series and other mystery series as Elizabeth Peters. She uses Barbara Mertz, her actual name, for non-fiction work.

Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Carrie Vaughn.
This first book in the Kitty Norville Urban Fantasy series is about a late-night radio host whose program accidentally evolves into a phone-in talk show for supernatural beings. Kitty has been a werewolf for a few years but is trying to keep that fact from her radio fans. I’m enjoying the book and I’m curious to see where subsequent books take the story.

What Genres Sell a Million eBooks for Authors?
Curious about the genres of the pioneer Kindle Million Authors, I did some research. Keep in mind that genre classification will vary with source. I used the genre the author identified when available. Some authors write in more than one genre.
7 of 11 Kindle Million Members write in
Janet Evanovich: Crime/Mystery
John Locke: Thriller (and also a Western series)
Michael Connelly: Crime/Thriller
Lee Child: Thriller
James Patterson: Thriller
Stieg Larsson: Thriller
Nora Roberts as J.D. Robb: Futuristic Crime Mystery*
George RR Martin: Epic Fantasy
Suzanne Collins: Fantasy
Charlaine Harris: Urban Fantasy
Other Genres 3
Kathryn Stockett: General Fiction
Nora Roberts: Romance
John Locke: Western (and also a Thriller series)
*Note about JD Robb/Nora Roberts. I’m pretty sure that, although her JD Robb series are very popular, alone J.D. Robb books would not have put Nora Roberts in the Kindle Million Club this early in the game, where as the Romance books alone would have probably joined the club by now.
