‘Martina Cole’s success must be a source of envy for many’ – Independent, 2016
Not many people would argue with that. This year marks 25 years since Martina’s debut novel Dangerous Lady was published. 25 years, 22 novels, 22 bestsellers and of those at least 15 No.1 Sunday Times Bestsellers. How could this consistent and ever-growing success not make others envious?
At the start of this anniversary year, the Queen of Crime was awarded an Honorary Platinum Sales Award at the Nielsen|Specsavers Bestseller Awards.
The awards are unique in their recognition of success through sales, sadly something often overlooked in other literary prizes.
Martina received the Platinum award for over 9 million copies sold of all her titles since Nielsen began records 20 years ago. She also received 4 Gold awards for Revenge, Faces, The Business and Faceless which sold over 500,000 copies in the UK in 2016.
With her unique, powerful storytelling, acclaimed for its hard-hitting, true-to-life style – there is no one else who writes like Martina Cole.
Unmatched in talent and unstoppable in success.
