Glenn Beck's Next Chapter: Book Publisher

When Glenn Beck announced in April he was leaving his Fox News show, it wasn't clear what was next for the conservative television and radio host. Today, he revealed that he's planning to turn at least part of his focus to book publishing.

Beck--who's written best-selling books about politics and religion, along with a holiday-themed children's book--is starting a new Simon and Schuster imprint, Mercury Ink. According to a press release on Beck's website, the imprint will "publish and promote books and authors that Glenn is passionate about across a variety of genres."

Perhaps unsurprisingly considering the genre's popularity at the moment, Mercury Ink's first release will be a young adult novel:

Mercury Ink's first title is Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25, a young adult novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans. The book, on-sale this August, has already received accolades from successful writers like perennial bestselling thriller author Vince Flynn, who said: "Michael Vey is one of the most original thrillers I've come across in years. It's rare that a book can appeal to a young adult just as much as their parents--but Evans has pulled it off."
