Former Vice President Mike Pence is set to chronical his experience in the Trump White House with a two-book deal he signed with Simon & Schuster Wednesday.
The publisher said Pence will pen “the definitive book on one of the most consequential presidencies in American history.”
Pence’s autobiography is tentatively scheduled to be released in 2023 under the book deal, the publisher said in a release.
“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,” the 48th VP said.
“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.”
The memoir is said to focus on Pence’s national political trajectory, with insight on pivotal moments from the 2016 presidential race to President Biden’s inauguration.
The Republican was known for his enduring loyalty to Trump, until the former president falsely claimed the 2020 election was fraudulent. It’s unclear how thoroughly the book will focus on their split.
The news comes on the same day Pence announced he is launching a conservative advocacy group, Advancing American Freedom.
The organization “will defend and build upon the successful policies of the Trump-Pence Administration,” and “help defeat the Radical Left Agenda and Advance American Freedom for generations to come!,” Pence said Wednesday.
The former veep began to re-enter public discourse last month, speaking out against a Democratic-led voting reform bill passed in Congress.
In February, the former Indiana governor announced he joined the Heritage Foundation conservative think tank as a distinguished visiting fellow.
