James Patterson’s New Releases for 2010

James Patterson

There’s a really interesting article about James Patterson and his publishing empire in January 20th’s New York Times Magazine. One staggering statistic from the article is that “since 2006, one out of every 17 novels bought in the United States was written by James Patterson.” The article also talks about how he works with co-authors and what that process involves. He addresses his critics by saying:

If you want to write for yourself, get a diary. If you want to write for a few friends, get a blog. But if you want to write for a lot of people, think about them a little bit. What do they like? What are their needs? A lot of people in this country go through their days numb. They need to be entertained. They need to feel something.

It’s a fascinating profile of the prolific author and I recommend you read it if you get a chance. Of course, the article got me thinking about what Patterson has on tap for this year. Check out his publishing schedule for 2010:
