Independent Author Sells Over 1 Million eBooks on Kindle

I found this story on Mashable and it's one that I just love. This is disintermediation at work and proof that the internet will consistently lower the price for entry.
Crime novelist John Locke has become the first independent author to sell more than 1 million ebooks through Kindle’s Direct Publishing program, Amazon announced Monday.
The author, a self-described “niche marketer” who attributes much of his success to his $0.99 pricing model, has self-published nine novels through the Kindle Store, including New York Times bestselling ebookSaving Rachel, as well as his first non-fiction title, How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months.
Locke pockets 35 cents for every ebook he sells through Kindle. He has never had a traditional agent or publisher. He joins seven other authors, including Stieg Larsson and Nora Roberts, in the “Kindle Million Club.”
