Yes, A CLASH OF KINGS sold considerably better than A GAME OF THRONES. These series have a tendency to build.

It was a NY TIMES bestseller, which GAME was not. Also made lots of other lists.

However, in the publishing biz it is considered impolite to ask a writer about his sales figures... like asking someone how much they make when you meet 'em.
