James Patterson to speak at ILF Annual Conference In January, 2010, The New York Times magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having “transformed book publishing.” Time magazine named him “The Man Who Can’t Miss,” and he is a two-time Children’s Choice Book Award “Author of the Year” nominee—a designation decided on by more than 15,000 children and teen readers.
In the past three years, James Patterson has sold more books than any other author (according to Bookscan), and in total, Patterson’s books have sold an estimated 275 million copies worldwide. Since 2006, one out of every 17 hardcover fiction books sold was a Patterson title. He is the first author to have #1 new titles simultaneously on The New York Times adult and children’s bestsellers lists and is the only author to have five new hardcover novels debut at #1 on the list in one year—a record-breaking feat he’s accomplished every year since 2005. To date, he has had 19 consecutive #1 New York Times bestselling novels, and holds The New York Times record for most Hardcover Fiction bestselling titles by a single author (83 total), which is also a Guinness World Record.
Mr. Patterson will be the keynote speaker during the ILF Annual Conference on Wednesday, November 9th at the Marriott East in Indianapolis.
