Heaths End Lower 48 Book Tour: ‘We’ll See You on Down the Trail’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 11, 2012

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

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. encountered family and friends at many of the Our Sarah book tour locations, and every where they went they made others feel like family and friends. Now, this adventure in the Lower 48 has come to an end. They have had the experience of a lifetime, and we have certainly enjoyed vicariously accompanying them on every stop. After a schedule that took them to a plethora of states, the last of which was Washington State, the Heaths are headed back to the great state of Alaska. I miss them already.

Chuck Jr. journals on Facebook:

This is a picture from our signing tonight. These are some of our relatives that showed up: Greg and Brandi Jones, Kate and Tom Johnson… not pictured are my Uncle Ron and Aunt Colleen Jones. We also had friends show up from as far away as our old hometown of Skagway, Alaska (thanks Fred and Kathy Hosford).

This is a bittersweet post for us. We just finished our final book signing in the Lower 48, here in Richland, Washington. Dad and I are physically and mentally exhausted from three weeks on the road. We’ve crossed the country, met some incredible people, done over fifty interviews, and along the way, we’ve become closer as father and son than ever before (even though there have definitely been times when we wanted to strangle each other). After all of our adventures, a big part of us doesn’t want it to end. We still want to get out to other places to share our adventures in Alaska and our time with Sarah, but we have families that we miss very much waiting patiently for us at home.

We’re not completely done, though. We will be returning to Alaska late tomorrow night, and then we’ll head out to Wasilla, Friday, to do another interview with Fox and Friends (from Sarah’s little studio) at 3:00am! If you watch it Saturday morning, I’ll be the guy with the dark bags under my eyes and dad will be the guy mumbling incoherently beside me. Just joking dad… sort of.

Today was a very busy day for us. Besides the book signing in Richland, we also did three radio and two television interviews. They all seemed to go well, but you never know how they’ll come across. We also had dinner with my uncle, Ron Jones, his wife, Colleen, and his son Greg and wife Brandi. As usual, our time with family was too short.

I just want you guys that are following us to know how much we appreciate you. Your comments gave us the fuel we needed to keep going when we were bone-tired. My favorite part has been hearing from people at the book signings that have actually read the book and told me how much they enjoyed it. That’s so nice to hear. I know that dad and I are not a couple of Tolstoys, and we didn’t pretend to try to be like that when we wrote the book. We wanted to tell our stories in the same way we relate them orally to our friends.

We’ll keep plugging along and we’ll try to get our book in people’s hands, despite getting little or no help from the mainstream media. Besides the stories about Alaska and Sarah, everyone should hear the stories about the way the media can try to destroy a good person’s character.

Thank you again for all your support, and at the request of a lot of you out there, we’ll keep posting entries from Alaska, just not as many.

As dad always says when leaving his friends, “We’ll see you on down the trail.”

Chuck

Our Work Continues for ‘Our Sarah’; Counting on You

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 10, 2012

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

Common sense conservatives have been joined together by common principles, among which are a respect for life, love of country, commitment to the Constitution, and belief in fiscal restraint. Those of us who support Governor Palin have found ourselves united also by a determination to defend her record and character against the onslaught of personal attacks, false narratives, and outright lies. Since 2008, a core of supporters have fought back against every attempt to trivialize her influence and remove her from the forefront of American political life. Many have risen to the occasion to set the record straight. Citizen journalists have led the charge, debunking fiction while disseminating fact.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck Heath, Jr. have given us something that will help in our goal to spread the truth of who Governor Palin really is. The Governor’s father and brother wrote Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, a book that allows us to better understand her upbringing, her work ethic, and her political career. They share the adventures of an ordinary family whose life experiences helped produce someone doing extraordinary things.

Our Sarah serves, not only as an entertaining account of a family forging their way in the Last Frontier, but as a tool to aid in putting the truth front and center. Unfortunately, haters are hell-bent on hating, a fact which is not likely to change. They not only take to social media like Twitter and Facebook to spew their vile, or write books citing unnamed sources to cast aspersions, they go about seeking ways to override every vestige of positive news about Governor Palin. Since the Heaths released their book, some have written reviews of it for the purpose of continuing their anti-Palin campaign.

Here are  samples:

From Goodreads.

From Amazon.

There are also many positive comments out there. Here are a couple from Amazon:

I read the entire book in one sitting and wanted more. This book is not just setting the record straight, but has great Alaskan stories that bring home why Alaska is called ” The Last Frontier”. Sarah’s brother, and dad especially seem to be characters, the type of folks that you could sit and listen to tell stories for hours. I laughed out loud at some of these stories and was touched by others. Really, a well-written book- the only downside that it wasn’t longer.

With down home folksiness that epitomizes the parents of Governor Palin , Chuck Heath tells the story of an incredible state ; an unforgettable family and a remarkable daughter—Governor Sarah Palin.

The only review on Barnes & Noble is the one I submitted.

We need more of these positive, truthful comments to push back against the negative ones.

In the interest of our ongoing effort to fight the smears and right the wrongs, would you consider going to these sites, signing up, and posting your comments about Our Sarah: Made in Alaska? You can also rate the book.

I’ve heard many people praise this new book, and it’s enjoying success on Amazon.com. Let’s not just read the book, go to our favorite website, and talk amongst “our own,” however. Won’t you consider leaving your mark for all to see? This is yet another way to help Governor Palin and to stand up for the truth. The critics, most of whom, I’d venture to say, have not even read the book, are counting on us to remain silent while they loudly proclaim falsehoods and discourage others from reading the true account of Governor Palin’s life and character. Let’s meet them where they are.

Please go to the Our Sarah: Made in Alaska page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and any other place you find that allows a comment or review. I’ve already done the same.

Standing up for Governor Palin is what we do, and this is just another way to accomplish that. Our work continues. Can the Palins and Heaths count on you?

CDA Press Covers Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Our Sarah Book Signing

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 9, 2012

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

The Our Sarah book tour received complimentary coverage as father and son, Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr., returned to a place where they have deep roots: Idaho.

In an article called “Sold on Sarah,” CDA Press reports on the Heaths’ address to the crowd and comments from those assembled at the Hastings Bookstore in Coeur d’Alene. Here are a few excerpts:

Karen White had one reason for being among the first in line Monday night to listen to Sarah Palin’s father and brother pitch their book, “Our Sarah: Made in Alaska.”

“Because I like Sarah Palin,” the Coeur d’Alene woman said, holding two copies of the $24.99 hardback written by Chuck Heath Sr. and Chuck Heath Jr.

White bought one for herself and one for a friend, and had both autographed by Sarah’s dad and brother.

“They’re down-to-earth people,” she said.

About 50 folks gathered at the Hastings store on Best Avenue to hear from the Heaths during one of their stops on a nationwide book tour.

The Chucks chatted for 45 minutes about faith, politics, the media and Sarah, of course – but not too much – because they’ve got a book to sell and sign that offers “intimate stories from Sarah’s life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family.”

They laughed often – “Anybody that calls me Mr. Palin, I charge them a dollar. I could be rich on that,” Heath Sr. said, grinning.

But they also often expressed frustration with the media they accused of twisting words and making up stories about Sarah Palin and her family.

“Most of the stuff written about us is totally untrue,” Chuck Jr. said.

“You guys that know her personally, she is as regular as anybody you will ever meet,” he added.

“We look at ourselves as just a common, ordinary family,” said Chuck Heath Sr., who grew up in Hope and graduated from Sandpoint High School in 1956. “We are not political. Where Sarah got this political ambition, we really don’t know.”

He said he also doesn’t know his daughter’s game plan.

“We don’t know what she’s going to do tomorrow. She’s very unpredictable. You’ll be seeing her again, I guarantee that,” he said.

He said Sarah only cares about what’s best for the people.

“She’s still that way. She’s not loyal to one party or another. It’s get a job done and let’s work together, and forget all this nonsense on the side,” he said, then adding, “which is what our country kind of needs right now.”

Shirley Greene drove up from Moscow to meet the Heath men and buy the book because she, too, is a huge Sarah Palin fan. She said Chuck Heath’s mother, Marie, was her teacher in Hope.

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

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 8, 2012

Posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

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 their Facebook page.

 

Thank you!

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.

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.

More to come…

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.
