Senator Jim DeMint Lands Book Deal on Economic Crisis

South Carolina senator and author Jim DeMint just inked a book deal to write a book called Now or Never: Saving America from Economic Collapse. Hachette’s Center Street imprint will crash the book for January 10, 2012, citing “the urgency of his call to action.”

Here’s more about the book: “the current political moment of widespread concern about massive debt and reckless spending is our last chance to rescue America from economic Armageddon. The book is an invaluable tool which will enlighten voters to the current state of our union in order to help them make the best choices in the upcoming presidential election. Continuing the momentum of the Tea Parties and rallies that demanded a new breed of representatives in the 2010 elections, Sen. DeMint reminds us of the importance of citizen activism and its power to change Washington in this critical moment in our nation’s history.”

Curtis Yates of Yates & Yates negotiated the deal with senior editor Kate Hartson. The book will also include commentary from Senators Tom Coburn, Mike Lee, Rand Paul,Marco Rubio and Pat Toomey, along with other political figures. The prolific senator has written Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America’s Slide into Socialism and The Great American Awakening.
