Everyone has a Novel Inside Them: The Bill Clinton Edition
Former United States President Bill Clinton is writing a novel. "The President is Missing" will be co-written with best-selling author James Patterson. The book will be jointly published by Knopf and Little, Brown and Co. The publishers promise the book will be "a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power. It will be informed by details that only a president can know.”
It will be released in June 2018.
While you're waiting, maybe you should test the theory that everyone has at least one good book in them and start writing your own novel.
Here are some books that might help.
