Have we heard Rick talking about the next Nikki Heat book? I know that they are putting out a 5 part comic Book series on Derrick Storm that started in Dec. They say there will be a book on the Storm series coming out in June or July. But have we heard any mention of Nikki Heat? Maybe we will be hearing something the next few episodes?
That was one of the questions that was posted for the group to ask about at CastleCon. From the Tales From L.A. thread......
I just wanted to add that someone on here wanted us to ask about more Nikki Heat books since, technically, Castle's contract is up. I asked Rob about it and he simply said that as long as they keep selling, they'll keep them coming. However, he did not offer any timeline for when they'll deal with that issue on the show.
I heard Rob's comment and I am sure there will be a book coming out. I just wanted people to keep an ear out in upcoming episodes to see if we hear any references. The books come out in Sept. so it is a ways off.
We have heard Castle reference his writing, most notably in "Murder He Wrote" and "Probable Cause" and the mentions in "MHW" sounded like he was working on a new Nikki Heat novel.
But they haven't really addressed the contract issue on the show, so perhaps we are simply to assume that he's been given another contract for more Nikki Heat books and it's happened off-screen just as the release of "Frozen Heat" wasn't mentioned either.
