NEW YORK (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has a two-book deal, including a budget-priced e-book and a second work that will build on responses to the first.

Hyperion announced Thursday that "Faith in the Dream" will come out in May. It will be listed at $2.99 in the hopes of finding "a broad and diverse readership." According to Hyperion, the book "represents a strategic expansion of Governor Patrick's core vision" and will help Patrick communicate with readers through social media.

The second book, currently untitled, is scheduled for 2014. It will be available electronically and on paper and will incorporate responses to "Faith in the Dream." Patrick has written a previous book, "A Reason to Believe," which came out in 2011.
