James Patterson & Hachette in a 17-Book Deal
When posting major bestseller lists to the site, I am always amazed that James Patterson is pretty much consistently on the list. And not just that he’s on the list, but nearly always it seems to be yet another new book. In 30 years of writing, how does he do it?
Well whatever it is he does, he plans to keep on doing it. Patterson just signed a 17 book deal with Hachette Book Group. The deal runs through to 2012 – yes, that’s 17 books over the next 3 years, or just under 6 books a year. Impressive.
The books will run the gambit of Patterson’s popular series including Alex Cross, Michael Bennett and the Women’s Murder Club and six of the books will be for young readers.
