Fox News Contributor Scores Casey Anthony Book Deal

Casey Anthony has yet to land a book deal of her own, but that’s not stopping St. Martin’s Press from putting out a book that looks inside the mind of the acquitted mother who was accused of killing her two-year-old daughter.

The publisher has acquired the North American rights to Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony, a new book which is currently being written by forensic psychiatrist and Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow. The book is being rushed to publication for a 2011 release.

Not everyone sees a Casey Anthony book in a good light. Novelist Jason Pinter says: “The notion of a Casey Anthony book is simply more water being squeezed from that stone, the media trying to drain out a last few columns and angles before the well dries up and we move on. Speculation is catnip, and because a few ‘analysts’ have declared Casey likely to reap a mind, people will feast upon it.”
