You're welcome. It's going to seem like a long wait...Just like for season 2.

Thanks, tysmom! Was wondering if BN books would come out, because a lot of cult series have them. Yay, another thing to look forward to this summer!! :D

I had no idea there was going to be a BN book. I'm usually not that interested in these kinds of TV show books but I can't wait to check this one out. Hope it's a good read.

Does anybody know if Tod Goldberg is any relation to Lee Goldberg, who does the Monk books?

Well then it must be accurate if Wikipedia said it! LOL j/k

Neither Lee nor Tod list it in their bios on their websites but they sure do look alike.

LOL!!! Yeah. That's why I named the source. Any yahoo could have entered that information. For all they know Lee could his sister.

From Tod Goldberg's Blog:

I just signed a three-book deal to write original novels based on the show Burn Notice for Penguin. How this came about is how many things come about when you're not expecting them -- your brother calls you from a scratchy phone in Germany and says, "Hey, do you like the show Burn Notice?" You reply, "Yeah, I love it. It's like an Elmore Leonard novel crossed with Steven Soderbergh's direction and a dash of Albert Brooks' mother issues for good measure. Why?" And then twenty minutes later you're on the phone with your agent, 36 hours later you're making demands of the publisher, 72 hours later you're sitting down with Matt Nix, who is your oldest and dearest friend's fraternity big brother, and who grew up down the street from you in Palm Springs and who has several of the same childhood friends as you, and also wonders how that very quiet, but very large, kid brother of Jason Homme became Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, and who you've known via emails for years, but never really in person, and you're discussing the show he created, Burn Notice, and then, about 100 hours later, you're figuring out just how on Earth you're going to meet your first deadline -- February -- without getting hooked on crank (again).

It's a unique opportunity for me sales-wise. When you write literary fiction, as I sort of do, it's not unusual to count sales in 4 digits as a success. And while I've earned a good reputation critically (I mean, you know, after Fake Liar Cheat...) for my work, I've never been a huge seller and this series of books will open me up to an audience that, heretofore, did not exist to me. I've always straddled the line between crime fiction and literary fiction, the result being that no one is quite sure where to shelve my books. Now I'll have these crime novels and the literary fiction, too. Plus, I love the show, it's fun to be working with Matt, and I now have a good (tax deductible) reason to go to Miami.

The second thing, and equally exciting thing, is that I finished my new short story collection this week (which I think will be called Where You Lived...but it could be called The Salt...or...The Models...or, well, I have 12 choices) and, after Thanksgiving, it will go out into the world to find a happy home. I think I know where I'd like that home to be, but it should be interesting to see where it all ends up. All I know for certain is that by the end of 2009, I'll have four new books out...which makes me a little sick to my stomach...


Maybe they are brothers?

Yes, they are brothers and write different books for shows. Lee is older than Tod by I think 9 or 11 years. A big diff in age but they love writing the books and Tod hopes that you'll love the BN book better than the Monk books, just out of sibling rivalry. Both are married with kids. Yes, got it off their own websites.
