John “NOT the father of liberalism” Locke, a self-published author of a series of thriller novels starring an ex-CIA assassin named Donovan Creed, has signed a sales and distribution agreement with Simon & Schuster. The agreement is unique in that Mr. Locke is still a self-published author, technically publishing under John Locke Books, but now his printed books will be available at brick and mortar outlets through Simon & Schuster. Mr. Locke’s sales have mostly been in electronic format and he was the first self-published author to sell one million e-books on the Kindle. “I applaud Simon & Schuster’s incredible vision, and their willingness to provide a vehicle that allows all readers traditional access to my books,” said Mr. Locke in a statement.
