Prolific author James Patterson has sold more ebooks than any other author. This according to his publisher, Hachette Book Group, who claim he has sold over 1 million ebooks—a new record. There is no independent data on ebook sales, so this is based on Hachette’s own numbers.
According to TheBookseller.com , Patterson had this to say about ebooks:
“Things have really changed in the digital space. With more and more people reading on iPads, Kindles, and Nooks, taking time to create interesting, user-friendly, enhanced ebook editions is becoming more and more important. And if e-books get people who might otherwise not be reading to pick up a book, then that makes me happy.”
This announcement comes on the heels of Patterson’s launch of a new international book franchise  called Private. With over 1 million ebooks and over 205 million print books sold, it seems that the international book market is the only thing left for Patterson to conquer.
