A new publisher welcomes conservative writers who have been “rejected by politically correct rivals.”
Jared Kushner has a book deal, joining former White House officials like Kellyanne Conway and Mike Pence who also write books.
But other members of the Trump administration have struggled more with mainstream publishers. These companies have struggled to strike a balance between promoting a range of voices – including conservative writers who can sell a lot of copies – and listening to their employees, readers and writers who consider it to be. morally unacceptable to publish them.
Now there is a new publishing house, All Seasons Press, which wants these conservative authors and presents itself as an alternative to traditional houses.
“Society stands ready to welcome authors who are attacked, harassed, banned from social media and in some cases outright rejected by politically correct editors,” he said in a statement Tuesday.
All Seasons marks out territory some mainstream publishers are reluctant to venture into, courting former Trump officials who staunchly supported the president until the bitter end of his administration, including those who echoed the bogus President’s assertions that the elections were rigged. The company plans to publish a book in the fall by Mark Meadows, Mr. Trump’s former chief of staff, and another by Peter Navarro, Mr. Trump’s former trade adviser. Its foundation was reported earlier by the Wall Street Journal.
All Seasons is run by Kate Hartson and Louise Burke, both of whom have led conservative prints at major publishers.
Ms Burke, the editor of the new company, was previously the editor of Threshold Editions at Simon & Schuster, where authors she worked with included Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and former president Donald J. Trump. Ms Hartson, editor-in-chief of All Seasons, spent 10 years at Center Street, a Hachette publishing house that published Donald Trump Jr., Senator Rand Paul, Newt Gingrich and Jeanine Pirro. Hachette fired Ms Hartson earlier this year.
Whether a Trump memoir is forthcoming remains a hot topic in the publishing. The former president poses a significant challenge to many book directors, who have said they would be reluctant to work with him because of the potential for revolt from their employees and the precision issues his remarks would raise.
Mr Trump said in a statement last week that he had turned down two book deals, but offered no proof. Ms Hartson and Ms Burke said they “would be honored to publish it.”
