Author: Terry Goodkind


Goodkind's first book, Wizard's First Rule, was auctioned to publishers in 1994 for six times more than the record price previously paid for a first fantasy novel.[5] It had a first print run of 60,000 copies, where 3,000–5,000 is more usual, and became an international bestseller. Goodkind has subsequently published ten other novels and one novella to great commercial success. All of his books, with the exceptions of Stone of Tears and Wizard's First Rule, have appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List.[6] Of his latest novels, Chainfire, debuted at #3;[7] in January 2005, Phantom at #1[8] in August 2006; and Confessor at #2 in November 2007 on the NYT Best Sellers List.Despite being placed in the genre by others, Goodkind perceives himself more as a novelist than as a fantasy author.[9][10] Goodkind believes that using the fantasy genre allows him to better tell his stories and better convey the human themes and emotions that he desires to share with the reader. Regardless of the genre of his novels, Goodkind states his main goal in writing is to inspire.[11]# ^ a b Interview with Terry Goodkind at a Virginia book signing # ^ Webchat with Terry Goodkind from Web archive, retrieved January 14, 2007 # ^ "Sci-Fi Dimensions Interview".
