[New York, NY] Politico is reporting that the publication date for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio‘s memoir has been pushed up to June 19.
That summer date rush-release is to get the Florida Republican senator’s 288-page An American Son into stores and on Kindles before a competing biography is released in July. Originally, Marco Rubio’s book was set to debut in October.
“National interest in Senator Rubio keeps heating up and we want the book out in the world as quickly as possible,” read the statement from Sentinel, a wing of the Penguin Group, as reported by Politico. “It’s important to the Senator and to us that people hear his remarkable story, and that of his family, directly from him.”
The hardcover edition will cost $26.95, according to the publisher’s website.
As reported by Sunshine Slate late last year, Penguin Group is the largest publisher in the world, having surpassed print giant Random House in 2009. The conservatively-focused Sentinel imprint was launched in 2003 and publishes a wide variety of right-of-center books on a variety of subjects and interests.
Well known authors publishing through Sentinel include Michele Bachmann, Donald Rumsfeld, Mike Huckabee, Tom Delay, Mitch Daniels and Nikki Haley.
But will the book sell big? Certainly, despite the fact that the Rubio brand has taken multiple hits as of late – his recent troubles in the media over his knowledge of his own family history, for instance – that has resulted in slipping poll numbers for the one-time GOP shooting star.
