Beck Signs Scratchy Book Deal

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has signed a two-book deal, reports Publishers Weekly.
The first book, and Beck’s first novel, will be The Christmas Sweater, and will be published in hardcover in fall 2008. It will form the basis for Glenn Beck’s 2008 Christmas Show, which will see Beck on a cross-country tour in December telling the story and promoting the book to his fans nationwide. S&S v-p and senior editor Mitchell Ivers, who collaborated with Beck on his previous two books, will edit The Christmas Sweater. The second book, a return to nonfiction, will be published in 2009.
TV Newser reports that the deal is worth $3 million.

Sounds like it’ll be Glen Beck all the time for a while later this year, beginning with the publication of The Christmas Sweater. We’re scratching already.
