The Girl in the Ice sells ONE MILLION

I’m over the moon, gobsmacked, stunned, and so happy to hear from my fabulous publisher Bookouture that The Girl in the The Ice has now sold ONE MILLION copies.

This time last year I was nervously gearing up for the book launch, and worrying how readers would take my change of direction from writing romantic comedies to crime thrillers.

I never dreamed I would sell so many books in such a short time. The Erika Foster Series: The Girl in the Ice, The Night Stalker and Dark Water have now sold over 1.4 million copies and will be published in 25 languages. Now people are surprised to hear that I also write romantic comedies.

I have so much to be thankful for, and I know I say this over and over, but thank you. YOU the readers are the most important people. When I started out as a writer and self-published my first book, I saw just how powerful word-of-mouth can be. There was no money for marketing, and no one outside my twenty-five followers on Twitter knew who I was, but slowly I saw my books being talked about and recommended.

So I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all, readers new and old, and to make a solemn promise that I will continue to write the best books I possibly can for you all. If I keep doing that, I know I can’t go wrong.

    This is just wonderful and fantastic, I am so happy for you Robert and so deserved, as your writing skill’s blow me away. I am half way through The Night Stalker and it’s really really eeire and dark and so enjoyable, its every bit as brilliant as Girl… Dark water I will race out and get that when I have finished Stalker…. Erika comes across to the reader so familiar, very real and personal. I didn’t know you write Romantic Comedies, well I’ll be!!! LOL I will read them one day after the Erika Foster series. I have never written to an author before and I have a few I really love, BUT your my favourite now… Good for you, you deserve this so enjoy the ride !!!
    Best always Jean 🙂

    I read “The Girl in the Ice” in 2 sits. I can honestly say that it is one of those rare cases where a thriller really kept me glued to the screen (I bought the ebook) til the very last page. You deserve your success and am now looking forward to reading your latest work. All the best!

  10. I have just finished Last Breath and absolutely loved it , but what a horrible character Darryl was ! I have now read all of your detective Erika Foster books ( the last 3 in just 2 weeks ) and I think I need some light relief , so I’m going to try one of your comedy books . All of your books are so different , with many twists and turns . I absolutely love them, keep doing more of the same please Rob 😀 x
