Digi-Novel Collaborator Announced

surly.12.jpgNovelist, blogger, and comic book writer, Duane Swierczynski will co-write “Level 26: Dark Origins,” the first of three projected digi-novels by the creator of the television’s CSI.

USA Today reports that Swierczynski will work with Anthony Zuiker, the CSI creator who landed a seven-figure deal with Dutton to write this three-novel series. The books will follow the adventures of a detective investigating serial killers. UPDATE: here are more details from Swierczynski’s blog.

Here’s more from the post: “After every 20 pages or so, readers will be able to go online to watch a three-minute video. The videos are designed, Zuiker says, ‘to embellish the novel and drive readers to the next book.’”
