Colin Jackson to write for Quick Reads

<p>The Quick Reads initiative has signed Adele Parks, Colin Jackson and Gilda O&#39;Neill up for titles next year, with another Doctor Who book also in the offing. The project, which is targeted at struggling readers, sees bestselling writers providing short, fast-paced books, which are packaged as mainstream titles and sold front-of-store by retailers.</p><p>Quick Reads is aiming to publish six to eight titles in 2008 and says it will ensure some high-profile authors, but also a strong range of solid reads by traditional writers. The project will repeat and extend its outreach campaign in 2008, and will also expand its work with employers to get Quick Reads into workplaces.</p>
