Palin book cover unveiled

Sarah Palin’s new book will be released in November.
Sarah Palin’s new book will be released in November.

(CNN) - Get used to this image - it's a cover that will be gracing every bookstore come November.

Harper Collins Thursday unveiled the cover art for Sarah Palin's forthcoming work set to be released in late fall, "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag."

The cover features a smiling Palin looking straight into the camera while donning a flag pin and flag-studded bracelet.

Harper Collins, the publishing behemoth behind Palin's wildly successful 2009 memoir Going Rogue, says the new book "ranges widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, and reflects on the key values-both national and spiritual-that have been such a profound part of Governor Palin's life and continue to inform her vision of America's future."

"Written in her own refreshingly candid voice, America By Heart will include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her-from the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies," Harper Collins also said.

The official release date is scheduled for November 23, 2010 – almost a year-to-the-date of Going Rogue's debut. The date also coincides with what will likely be the begining of the next race for the White House. Of course, the former Alaska governor has not indicated whether she plans to be a presidential candidate.

    Is this really news. Does she have any ideas to boost the economy? What about Job creation? What is the purpose of this article?

    Why do we keep paying attention to the village idiot?

    Now all those hate comments will begin. No one likes her, no one will read the book, no one respects her or her convictions, all I can say is: WRONG!!!

  6. Too True For You

    Truly we are a consumer society trained to buy any garbage if this is destined to be a best seller. What can an anti-intellectual proven quitter have to tell anyone about anything? Not much, unless you like listening in an echo chamber.

    How long until her points on American History are Refudiated?

    The only way she could ever hope to be "refreshing" would be if she were truly "spiritual" and open minded and open hearted.

    I know it's silly, but I hope she can eventually find that path.

    Love is the only important thing... everything else is just details.

    The magic of makeovers. It covers so much.

    I love how the name of the "author" is nearly twice the size of the title. Shows you what they're selling, obviously not the content.

    Palin is a disgrace to America. She couldn't write a book if her life depended on it. Sounds like a lot of "filler" in the book i.e. "selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her-from the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies". Geez anything to make a buck!

    Thanks for the advance warning! I'll be sure to address all of my book buying needs prior to November, and then I'll avoid bookstores like the plague that racist hatemonger in lipstick is.

    That's right stupid fools who are supporters of this imbecile. This woman quit as governor so she can get rich. And you people think she is someone who is seriously a good person? She's playing you idiots for the idiots you are.

    Well, she's certainly relentless in her pursuit of fame and fortune! I might read this book, if I can find it for 50 cents at a garage sale next year, as I found her other effort, "Going Rogue", recently. Even with professional help, the writing in that was so bad, it made Lynne Cheney sound like Voltaire.

    Why do we even entertain this person...what does she bring (ideas) to the national debate...why does CNN keep referring to her as Gov. ...didn't she quit the position. I just can't believe how much media attention is given to this person, it's not like she has anything profound to say...you mean to tell me, CNN can't find someone more news worthy...why does the news media make her bigger than the event she shows up at?

    please stop reporting every bowel movement this idiot takes: sarah palin quit half way thru her term as governor of alaska to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame. It is well past 20 minutes now...

    No one but the 20% of 'merkins who think the sun goes around the earth gives a hoot what this moran says.

    Please. Just. Stop.

    Sarah is a very photogenic person. Too bad she is also a dim-witted nutcase.

    ""the new book "ranges widely over American history, culture, and current affairs""

    So in actuality, someone else wrote the book, the publishers spiced it up with some Palin sounding verse ... slapped her picture on it and
    WaaaLaaa!!

    Has she even read 2 books in such a short period of time?
    Let alone written 2 books??

    Doubt it!

  24. Not Buying It

    This is the woman who has still failed to articulate anything beyond right-wing talking points and Tea Party pep rally sloganeering. And now we're supposed to buy her new book to find out, through other people's words, what's rolling around in her noggin. Yeah…right.

    Sorry, I have bills to pay.

    what does this woman know about culture, history, current events? maybe her witch doctor advisor gave her insight.
    she continues to be an embarrassment to most women in America and around the world. just a money hungry , attention seeking no body while there are all kinds of women, white, black, asian, hispanics and others who make a difference in the lives of people everyday who will never get the recognition they deserve.
