Canavan hits one million milestone for Orbit
11.08.11 | Charlotte Williams
Fantasy author Trudi Canavan has become the latest writer to top the landmark figure of one million print book sales through UK Nielsen BookScan.
Total sales through Nielsen BookScan to the week ending 6th August 2011 are 1,001,030 copies, worth £7,668,463.68.
Editorial director Anne Clarke congratulated Canavan on the milestone, and said: "Orbit is proud to have been Trudi Canavan's UK publisher from the very start of her fantastic career - and for her more recent books we have been her publisher everywhere else in the world, too. We look forward to many, many more magical novels to come."
Clarke added Canavan's success was an example of the current strength of the science-fiction and fantasy market in the UK.
Orbit will publish her next book, The Traitor Queen, the latest in the Traitor Spy trilogy, in summer 2012.
