PublishAmerica sets new record
for largest book signing in history

FREDERICK, Md. - PublishAmerica, a Maryland-based publishing company that has launched more than 13,000 authors since its founding in 1999, set a new Guinness World Record today when more than 150 PublishAmerica authors gathered at the Frederick Towne Mall for the largest book signing event in history.

The PublishAmerica book signing more than doubled the record set on Dec. 3, 1999, when 60 novelists participated in a signing in London, England, according to Guinness World Records.

The 153 PublishAmerica authors journeyed to Frederick from across the nation to promote their books at the Feb. 29 event, which concluded a three-day convention held by PublishAmerica for its authors.

"Although this was our first convention, I knew we'd break the world record when I saw the enormous interest displayed by our authors, and the great distances they traveled to be here," said Larry Clopper, president of PublishAmerica. "Our authors had been asking us to have such a convention, and they set a new world record. Our authors should be very proud of themselves."

PublishAmerica received from Guinness World Records an official certificate for "Most Authors Signing Own Book," which reads, "A total of 153 authors from PublishAmerica signed their books for the public at the same book signing event in Frederick, Maryland, USA, on Feb. 29, 2004."
