In ABC’s “Castle,” Nathan Fillion plays a best-selling mystery novelist. So when they need a cute tie-in to drum up interest in the show’s second season what better way than to publish one of his books?
Starting Aug. 10 ABC will publish chapters of Richard Castle’s “Heat Wave” as they air reruns of the show, leading up to the season premiere in late September. The book will reportedly include elements from the shows — which makes sense, given the premise, that he’s following the cops to get story ideas. The book itself will be published September 29 by Hyperion.
There’s one problem with stuff like this: what if the book by this fictional bestselling writer sucks? No one’s saying who the real author is. Personally, I hope it’s Nathan. Look for these to show up on Fillion’s autograph lines real soon.
