Former Vice President Mike Pence has just inked a brand new book deal. Pence, who is a potential contender for president in 2024, will be writing a two-book autobiography, with the first part due to hit store shelves in 2023. The books will be published by Simon & Schuster.
The books, which have not yet been titled, will be a chronicle of Pence’s faith in Christ and his time spent as a public servant.
“I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell the story of my life in public service to the American people, from serving in Congress, to the Indiana Governor’s office and as Vice President of the United States,” Pence said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the outstanding team at Simon & Schuster to invite readers on a journey from a small town in Indiana to Washington, DC.”
A prominent publisher for the biggest names in politics, Simon & Schuster recently finalized a deal for Hillary Clinton to co-write a thriller called State of Terror, and its imprint, Gallery Books, published Beautiful Things, a book by Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. The publisher also reneged on its agreement to publish Sen. Josh Hawley’s book on Big Tech censorship following the Missouri Republican’s objection to the certification of Biden’s 2020 election victory.
In Pence’s books, Simon & Schuster said the former vice president will “address the many pivotal moments of the administration, from the time he was selected to run as Vice President through Inauguration Day on January 20, 2021.”
“Vice President Pence’s life and work, his journey as a Christian, the challenges and triumphs he has faced, and the lessons he has learned, tells an American story of extraordinary public service during a time of unrivaled public interest in our government and politics,” said Dana Canedy, who serves right now as the senior vice president and publisher of Simon & Schuster. “His revelatory autobiography will be the definitive book on one of the most consequential presidencies in American history.”
It’ll definitely be interesting to get a look inside the man’s life and get a feel for what led him to make the decisions he’s made throughout the course of his time in public service.
Also, what an encouragement it will be to read of his faith in Christ and how that has shaped his life. We need that kind of stuff right now.
