NEW YORK -- Self-publishing author John Locke has a made an untraditional deal with a traditional publisher.

Simon & Schuster announced Monday that beginning early next year it will distribute physical editions of Locke's Donovan Creed thrillers, which have sold more than 1 million copies as e-books.

Locke will continue to publish and edit his work, through his own John Locke Books, and the author will maintain full control over the digital versions. His novels include "Lethal People" and "The Love You Crave."

In a statement issued by Simon & Schuster, Locke called the agreement an "exciting departure from the norm" of giving the same publisher rights to both e-books and traditional books.
