Glenn Beck may be leaving Fox but you’ll still see a lot of him at the bookstore. Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster both to publish a bunch of Beck’s own books, and to create Mercury Ink, a division devoted to Beck’s pet authors, the companies announced today. First up: a political book from Beck titled The Original Argument: The Federalists’ Case for the Constitution, Adapted for the 21st Century.
But it seems Beck has more than politics in mind. His second book under the deal will be a novel called The Snow Angel. And the first Mercury Ink book will be a young adult thriller from Richard Paul Evans titled Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25. The book’s Amazon description doesn’t reveal any obvious ideological bent to the story, which centers around two high school students with mysterious electrical powers.
