Gov. Pawlenty’s book to hit the stores as he exits office

The new book by Gov. Tim Pawlenty — “Courage to Stand: An American Story” — will be released on Jan. 11, soon after the governor ends his eight-year run as governor.

By then, he’s expected to have officially begun his quest for the presidency. The unofficial quest has taken him around the country and back many times already, with frequent stops in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The book is being published by Tyndale House Publishers, which touts that it publishes “Christian fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, and other resources, including Bibles in the New Living Translation.”

Another Tyndale book — “Coming Back Stronger: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity,” a memoir by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, written with Chris Fabry — was recently released and made many bestseller lists.

Writing books — or having them written for/with you — has become de rigueur for presidential candidates, it seems. And Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, another Republican hopeful, has one coming out this fall: “Real Hope, Real Change: New Conservative Solutions to Rescue America.” He’s listed as co-author.

    For for years he’s been running for any office that will have him — and so far not too many takers.

    I wonder who’s writing it.

    So who’s the “co-author” or ghostwriter?

    “Christian fiction, nonfiction, children’s books”: including fairy tales, no doubt.
