Our Sarah Makes Amazon Best Seller List

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 7, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin’s father and brother’s new book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, hit the shelves on September 25. Already, the book is enjoying success. Currently, Our Sarah has reached the Amazon Best Seller list in the Political Leader Biographies category. The Kindle edition is #6, and among hardcover books, it’s #10.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. worked hard to write a book that shares the truth of who the Heaths and Palins are. We get a good look at Governor Palin, the people who have influenced her, the experiences she’s lived, and the values she’s espoused. We get to understand her work ethic better and how it was shaped, we learn details about the 2008 campaign, and we come away with an even greater respect for both Governor Palin and her family. You’ll do a little laughing and crying along the way as well.

In various media appearances, the Chucks have stated that over one hundred books have been written about their daughter and sister, but theirs is different. They actually know the subject of their book, unlike some of the other authors, many of whom were simply looking for a way to destroy her and promote a false narrative. Governor Palin mentioned this in her Facebook “thank you” note to those who have supported her dad and brother on the tour.

If you haven’t purchased the book yet, you will definitely want to do so. I can attest to the fact that you won’t want to put it down. You can get yours at Amazon here.

Congratulations, Chuck, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. May you enjoy continued success.

Gov. Palin thanks supporters and those in the media who have supported the ‘Our Sarah’ Book tour

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 7, 2012

Governor Palin posted this Note on her Facebook page earlier today:

Sarah Palin

________________________________________________________________

Thank you to everyone who has supported my dad and my brother on their book tour!

by Sarah Palin on Sunday, October 7, 2012 at 1:28am ·
.

Several books and articles have been written, and some movies made, under the guise of sharing with the public who the Palins are, and who I am in particular. Very often, the goal is simply to misrepresent us and present something so far-fetched as to not bear any resemblance to truth at all. Many in the media have been more than happy to make room for these stories and allow those behind them to have their say, though these “biographers” very often neither know me nor are willing to put names to their so-called sources.

This is why I so appreciate those members of the media who are giving my dad and brother—who have written a factual book—a platform to tell the real story. Unlike many of the other books people have turned to for information, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska is written by two people who actually know me, were there through much of the 2008 campaign, and have cut through the bunk right to the truth—the truth of who the Heaths and Palins really are and what an Alaska upbringing provides. I am thankful for those who actually are fair and balanced in their reporting, giving the two Chucks the same opportunity to tell their story.

Two particularly good interviews are one Chuck, Jr. did with the Great One, Mark Levin, and an interview Greta Van Susteren conducted with both Chucks. If you only saw what Greta was able to air on On the Record last night, be sure to watch the uncut version.

A heartfelt “thank you” to those who have taken part in the book tour. In a whirlwind of a schedule, Dad and Chuck, Jr. have traveled to various states, and many of you have been there to greet them, help with laundry (yes, that’s right!), or just shake their hands. I know they appreciate it, and I just wanted to chime in and say that I appreciate it also. The tour is winding down, but there are a few more stops. Go here to see the remaining schedule, and stop in to say “hello” if you can. You never know: you might just end up in one of my brother’s journal entries, which he’s recording on theirFacebook page.

Thank you!

Levin: Chuck Heath, Jr. Interview for “Our Sarah, Made in Alaska”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 5, 2012

One year ago today Mark Levin hosted Governor Sarah Palin on his radio show at which time she made her announcement that she would not seek the Republican nomination for the office of President of the United States.  This year on October 5th, Levin hosted Chuck Heath, Jr. and gave him the opportunity to talk about the book he wrote with his father Chuck Heath, Sr., “Our Sarah Made in Alaska”.  It’s a great interview that you won’t want to miss.

An Alaskan Review of “Our Sarah: Made In Alaska”

Posted by traceyporreca on October 3, 2012

Determined to give an honest review and not to allow my friendships with the family influence my review of the book, I found it difficult in reading the first few pages not to notice similarities between what was being described, and what I know of the authors. “Fish out of water” feelings in describing the surreal nature of being thrust into the limelight, and the journey of their lives to this point described in ways I’ve witnessed in person, affirmed this book is truly written from the heart of these authors, not just from memory. Personal connections (and difficulties in the timeliness of my review) aside, I endeavor to review “Our Sarah: Made In Alaska.”

Being “Alaskan” is hard to describe to those outside without the typical clichés – the adventure, the rugged landscape and the people who inhabit it, and the lifestyle. I believe it’s all these things that make it hard to describe what it’s like to live here and become a part of it, but this book has done a very good job of describing the components that make up that pioneer spirit. Every person’s walk through life is different, and every Alaskan’s path is even broader. Not gushing over Sarah Palin’s accomplishments, but rather weaving a tale of their life’s journeys, you are left to the realization that each step in life forms us, shapes us, into who we become. We use these influences to make the decisions that affect ourselves and others. The how’s and why’s of Sarah Palin’s decisions as an individual and political influence are left to the reader – the book is a journey you take with Sarah Palin’s father and brother into who she has become. Not spending a lot of time gushing over Sarah and how exciting it is to be a family member, but more time telling Alaskan stories that build a framework of how Sarah came to be the person she is. This book is as much about living life in Alaska and taking all the best things from it, as it is a telling of how that lifestyle shaped who Sarah Palin is today.

The well-known topics of faith, patriotism, family, and a love of outdoors and sports, are dealt with affection and care. This is not a book that tells you why she is who she is – it’s more a book of discovery. While their writing styles are different, each chapter brings you closer to understanding more about Alaska and the Heath/Palin family.

While I personally know Chuck Sr. better than I do his son, I was surprised at some of the things revealed in this book – stories I’ve never heard and things about both their pasts that led to “ah ha” moments and put things into perspective. One of the things I’ve always enjoyed when being around Chuck Sr. are his stories – his ability to tell any tale. He is one who has a gift for being able to recount an event and not make the listener feel as if he is being told a “fish story,” but rather someone who has a sage wisdom about that of which he speaks. You’re privy to a piece of living history in the stories he recounts. His son is an amazingly good writer and does an excellent job of making this book enjoyable while telling his version of growing up, “Alaska Style” in the Heath household.

If you think you’ve heard it all, and read it all – think again. This book makes the picture clearer than ever before, told by those who lived it and were there, not by those who admire or have their own agenda. It led me to appreciate and understand them, and Sarah Palin, even more.

There will be those Alaskans (and those outside), particularly in the media, who will read this review and others and form their own opinions from the reviews – not the book. The comparisons will come as well as some negative meme, and that is truly unfortunate. As an Alaskan, I ask that you read the book and form your own opinion. We Alaskans enjoy our independence and free spirit – it suits us well. After reading this book you can’t help but have a better understanding and appreciation for the foundation that Sarah Palin’s family and their experiences have given her, and this book is a testament to that.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr.’s First Book Signing Stop–Rochester, NY

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 1, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

I gave a little taste here, but the Rochester, NY event with Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. requires more detail. They arrived after being delayed several hours at JFK, causing them to miss an NBC television interview that night. It was raining rather hard, but it would have taken more than that to require such a lengthy delay. Interestingly enough, they never found out why they were delayed for so long.

I made the four plus hour drive up to Rochester Friday evening and was excited to do so. I arrived at Barnes and Noble before 1:00 p.m. Saturday, which was the time the book signing was scheduled to start. Prior to the event, word had already gone out that the media had chosen not to give this book signing any publicity. One reporter supposedly said advertising it would be an exercise in “bias.” Another pretended they wanted a press release at the last minute, although I soon learned that when they had been approached before, they said they weren’t interested. When they got that press release, they did nothing with it. Then you have the Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester’s big time newspaper, which also didn’t do its part. As Chuck, Jr. said, perhaps their name says it all. The bottom line is the authors should be able to show up and meet and greet people, sign autographs, and discuss their book, without worrying about the publicity end of things. Publicists have to do the heavy work ahead of time, and as this situation shows, they must be relentless in following up with media that don’t want to comply. They must ride the media and refuse to take “no” for an answer. Gone are the days when people can just expect members of the media to do their job.

I am left with two predominant feelings after my time with the Heaths yesterday. First, I am more baffled by–and impatient with–those who have demonized the Heaths and Palins, who have done everything in their power to promote lies and tear them down. These people are clueless, and their assessments are flat out wrong. Second, I am more determined than ever to continue this fight to stand behind the Heaths and Palins, to combat the lies, and to budge not one inch in my commitment to promote their integrity, defend their character, and pray for their well-being.

This really is my only regret. The Heaths deserved a New York welcome with crowds around the corner. This book merits that, and their hard work merits that. It’s not like they don’t have ample support in that part of New York. Everywhere they went, they ran into supporters of Governor Palin who had heard nothing about the book signing. I wish they would have received the welcome they deserved.

Having said that, the event was wonderful for those who attended. They made each one feel special and appreciated. They signed, talked, took pictures, and was as gracious as we have come to expect from the Heaths and the Palins.

I was glad to be able to help with the book signing. I took books from those in line, turned them to the title page, and passed them on to be autographed. I snapped pictures. I was able to meet people, and several talked about reading some of my writing or following me on Facebook. It was humbling, and I enjoyed every moment. It was Governor Palin’s father and brother they came to see, however, and they relished their time with them.

The Chucks arrived early, and they remained at the signing table past their scheduled time. Afterwards, they said they were going to take a stroll to the supermarket, Wegman’s, and asked if anyone wanted to follow them over. This is the kind of people they are–just regular, down to earth folks. A few of us made plans to meet them at their hotel later that evening and go out to dinner. They rode with me to the restaurant, and my thought was, “Man! I should have vacuumed my car!” Before they got in the car, though, they identified it and said, “That must be your car.” The Palin bumper stickers gave it away!

Dinner was going to be at the Olive Garden because the Heaths had never eaten there before, but when we arrived, we learned that the wait was going to be almost an hour. The Heaths had a phone interview to do in a couple hours, so we decided to go next door to Applebee’s. We had a short wait there, but spent the time talking, laughing, and watching football.

Over dinner, Chuck, Sr. and Jr. talked about Governor Palin, their new book, the Kate Gosselin episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska (That was surely interesting!), and other things. I learned some things I never knew, and I enjoyed the company tremendously. Both men are very humble, still find this life they’re living now to be surreal, and obviously think the world of Governor Palin. Sometimes the hardest people to win over are members of one’s own family. Sometimes winning the respect of family is harder than winning the respect of strangers. This is definitely not the case with this family. They are so proud of what Governor Palin has accomplished, and they readily acknowledge her as a person of integrity, courage, and Christian values. Her deep commitment to doing what’s right, something they say she possessed even at a young age, is not lost on them at all. It’s also not anything new. She was guided by this even as a mayor and governor. It is refreshing to hear such pride and trust in their voices as they speak of her. It is natural, therefore, that the abuse she has taken these last few years rubs them the wrong way, to say the least. This book is one step toward setting the record straight.

I learned stories that were edited out of the book. Come to find out the book was about 1,000 pages long before the editor scaled it down. Chuck, Sr. said some of the best stories, he feels, ended up on the editing floor. Not to worry, however. What remains is very good. It hasn’t been that long since I read Our Sarah and wrote the review, and already I want to read it again.

I love that we all held hands and prayed when our meals came. I love that we ate, drank, and laughed heartily. I love that we sat there conversing with ease: Chuck, Jr., Chuck, Sr., Deb, Tim, Lori, Deb, and yours truly. The Heaths are such regular folks, so real and unassuming. I couldn’t help but think that even the haters would’ve forgotten their anti-Palin/Heath fatuity after just five minutes sitting at that table with these salt of the earth Alaskans.

I wore my Alaska Grown sweatshirt; Chuck, Sr. wore a Wasilla, Alaska shirt; and Lori wore her Wasilla Warriors t-shirt. Here we all were in New York, but we were representing the Last Frontier in conversation, company, and clothing.

I now enter a new week with new memories and with a renewed commitment to remain in this fight. The Heaths made New York the first stop on their book tour, having written a book that shares the truth about Governor Palin and illustrates the actions and adventures of their family. They left New York having made many of us feel like more a part of their family than we already did, and as all good families say to one another, so say we to them: “We’ve got your back.”

New York was the start, but the Heaths are traveling the country. Please be there when they come to your state. Show your support during this book tour. Governor Palin reminded us today of their book signing schedule. Please check it out here and make plans to attend.

Enjoy a few more pictures. Some of these are courtesy of yours truly. Others are courtesy of Deb Farrell Howard, Joyce Wiedrich, Katie DiFrancesco, Deb Heisler, and Lori Brenneman.

A Taste of Our Sarah: Made in Alaska Book Signing in Rochester

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 30, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Yesterday was the first day of Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck Heath, Jr’s book tour for their newly released book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska. Governor Palin’s father and brother traveled to Rochester, NY after a week of media appearances in New York City.

I made the trip to Rochester to participate in this event. You’ve just got to love the Heaths. It is obvious why Governor Palin is such an amazing person. She gets it honest, as they say. I’m hitting the road, heading out of Rochester and back home, so I will share more later. In the meantime, I will share two pictures below. I have already posted a number of pictures on Facebook, as have others, but enjoy these two here.

To read Chuck, Jr’s accounts of their time in Rochester, please click here, here, here, and here. He has a way with words–and he’s hilarious! Read/see pictures about everything from underwear, to dinner, to the “massive crowd” at the book signing.

Our Sarah Rochester, NY Book Signing Details

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 27, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

It’s been a busy week for Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr., “the two Chuck Heaths,” as Governor Palin calls them. Her father and brother’s book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska made its debut with a flurry of interviews by the two authors. This weekend, they add a new dimension to this rollout, embarking on their book tour, which commences in Rochester, New York this Saturday, September 29.

Barnes and Noble is the location, and the store is in preparation mode to make this an enjoyable and successful event.

Here’s their address and contact information:

Pittsford Plaza
3349 Monroe Avenue
Rochester, NY 14618
585-586-6020

Below, find important information about the signing event in Rochester. Please keep in mind, this refers to the New York signing only. For guidelines regarding other book tour locations, contact those particular venues.

The book signing event begins at 1:00 p.m., and Barnes and Noble will begin handing out tickets at 11:00 a.m. Each ticket will have a number, and Chuck, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. will sign books for people according to those numbers. In other words, the person who has ticket number one will get to greet the Heaths first.

People are encouraged to remain at the store once they have received their tickets. This will eliminate a situation where someone receives a ticket and leaves, while others have remained in line, only to have that person return and move to the head of the line.

Barnes and Noble does not require attendees to purchase their book from their store (although that would be a kind gesture, since they have opened their doors to allow this gathering). While people do not have to buy Our Sarah from Barnes and Noble to get in line, no one will be allowed in line without a book–whether purchased there or elsewhere. Those who do buy from the Rochester Barnes and Noble must do so before getting in line.

Please take note that Barnes and Noble does not allow attendees to present other books or materials to the Heaths to sign. The book signing is for Our Sarah only.

As Barnes and Noble is trying to get an idea of how many to expect for this exciting event, they encourage phone calls for questions, clarifications, or comments.

Who is planning to attend? Please leave a comment here to say you’ll be there or to tell us of others you know will be there at 1:00 p.m. this Saturday, September 29.

I encourage everyone in New York and neighboring states to attend and support the Heaths’ labor of love. They have written a book that allows a close-up look at Governor Palin, providing details about her no one else has been able to provide.

Chuck Heath Senior and Junior Talk to Fox and Friends About ‘Our Sarah,’ Which Launches Today

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2012

Videos retrieved from  

Sarah Palin’s father and brother appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to talk about their new book, ‘Our Sarah,’ which launches today.  During the conversation, Chuck Heath Sr. said that only 3 other books out of about 100 published  portray his daughter accurately.  Last night on the Roderic Deane Show, he named two of them as the books that Governor Palin wrote herself.  He left us guessing about the other one.

UPDATE:  We have received information from an authoritative source that the third book that Chuck Heath, Sr. was referring to as being accurate in its portrayal of Governor Palin is “Sarah”, by Kaylene Johnson.
