Glenn Beck to Share in Book Profits in New Deal

beck_5-4.jpgLast week BusinessInsider.com estimated Glenn Beck would make $18 million in 2009 — now it appears he’s headed for even more. Beck’s new book deal with Simon & Schuster will give him more of a share in the profits of each book, as well as increased creative control, reports the Wall St. Journal.

“I’d rather take a lower advance and have a partnership,” said Beck. “I’ll bet on myself and a smart person on the other side of the table every time.”

The deal is similar to the one given to Stephen King about whom, Beck noted, King once called him “Satan’s mentally challenged younger brother.”

Beck’s most recent book, “The Christmas Sweater,” sold 775,000 hardcover editions.
