An Ex-President and an Author

It is going to be a combination of publishers, editors, and authors, but one that you probably won’t want to miss. This week, publishing houses Knopf and Little, Brown & Co., announced that they are going to work together to publish a book by former President Bill Clinton, and author James Patterson.

The novel, tentatively titled THE PRESIDENT IS MISSING, is slated to be released on June 11, 2018. Right now, the book is just in the early stages, so no one is saying whether it will be in Patterson’s trademark style, or a different type of thriller, but the idea revolves around a sitting President in the White House, and is bound to have lots of juicy insider ideas.

Little, Brown & Co., will take care of publishing and distribution of all of the books, while Knopf will cover the advertising and tour dates, with input from both sides. This should be interesting.

While it’s not the first novel to be published by a former President (Jimmy Carter was the first), it is the first novel collaboration. We’ll have to wait and see how it goes, but this is sure to be a very interesting and desired book. Maybe we should start a waiting list now.
