Author hits e-miLe­stone

Austin American-Statesman - - WEDNESDAYBRIEFING -

James Pat­ter­son’s pub­lish­ing com­pany says that he’s the first author to ex­ceed 1 mil­lion sales in elec­tronic book de­liv­ery.

The Ha­chette Book Group says Pat­ter­son has moved 1.14 mil­lion units of his books for de­vices such as Kin­dle and the iPad. The big seller, by far, is his most re­cent novel, “I, Alex Cross,” which was pub­lished elec­tron­i­cally and in hard­cover last fall.

Pat­ter­son has had 19 con­sec­u­tive No. 1 New York Times best­selling nov­els, ac­cord­ing to his web­site.

There’s no third-party monitor of e-book sales, so Ha­chette used its own fig­ures and checked other prom­i­nent au­thors to see if any had cracked the mil­lion mark.
