Back in November (2010) Entertainment Weekly reported that an upcoming Bones episode "will introduce tracker Walter Sherman, the central figure in 'The Locator' novels by Richard Greener. In the books, Sherman is a Vietnam vet, but in the Bones world, Sherman will be a former military policeman who served in Iraq with Booth (David Boreanaz)." This character will then be spun-off into his own series, for which casting has already taken place.
No doubt, if the spin-off takes off, there will be more people interested in the novels on which the series is (loosely) based. To date Greener has written two novels which were published by Midnight Ink, a print-on-demand publisher out of Minnesota. Interestingly, Midnight Ink's average first run is between 5,000 and 10,000. Because it's a POD publisher, the titles are all paperback.
