Charlaine Harris Named PW’s Bestselling Female Author of 2009


Charlaine Harris is (drumroll please!), according to Publishers Weekly, the best selling female author of 2009!

Publishers Weekly just released its list of the Bestselling Books of 2009, and Charlaine has three of the ten spots on the Mass Market Paperback list! This is more than any other author of adult fiction; John Grisham and James Patterson each had two titles on the mm top ten.

FROM DEAD TO WORSE, CLUB DEAD, and DEAD UNTIL DARK, the first three books in the #1 bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series, came in at numbers 3, 8, and 9, respectively.

According to Nielsen Bookscan, Charlaine is the #5 bestselling fiction author of 2009, after Stephenie Meyer, James Patterson, Nora Roberts (counting her J.D Robb sobriquet), and Dan Brown.

Congratulations, Charlaine! This is wonderful news!
