There are best-selling authors, and then there are mega-best-selling authors: writers who have sold 100 million copies or more, such as Ken Follett, Nora Roberts, James Patterson and Stephenie Meyer. And there may be more of them now than ever.

On our current crop of mega-best-selling authors, and how they get there.


Ruth Ware came out with The Woman in Cabin 10, a suspense novel set on a luxurious yacht, and Karin Slaughter ratcheted up the chills with The Kept Woman. James Patterson and Maxine Maetro speculated on the possible election of the first female Pope in Woman of God.

Is 2017 the year “Woman” replaces “Girl” in book titles?
