James Patterson’s BookShots Is Now Live

By Dianna Dilworth 

JamesPatterson officially launched his new imprint today.

BookShots, is a line of novella-length titles under the Little, Brown and Company. Each title will be under 150 pages, and costs less than $5. Patterson will be writing or collaborating on these titles which will be in bookstores and other retailers.

“Nearly a third of Americans have not read a single book in the past year,” stated Patterson. “My hope is that BookShots will get people reading now and reading more often.”

“BookShots are designed to help people fit reading into their busy lives,” Patterson continued. “They’re stories that you can devour in an hour or two, and that will keep you engaged throughout. People will want to pick one of these up because they won’t be intimidated by the length, or ever bored by the plot.”

The first two titles are Cross Kill, starring Patterson’s popular character Alex Cross, and Zoo 2, the second installment in his Zoo series.
