SALT LAKE CITY -- Mitt Romney is preparing for a more prominent presence on the national scene with a new book coming out next spring. Tickets go on sale next week for a major book event in downtown Salt Lake City in March.
One year since the presidential election ended, Romney is stepping up his profile with national TV appearances, newspaper Op-Eds, fundraising for fellow Republicans and a new book called "No Apology: The Case for America's Greatness."
The book comes out March 2. One of the first events in a national book tour will be at the Salt Palace March 13 -- a book signing and lecture hosted by the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics.
Kirk Jowers, a long-time Romney backer, is its director.
"We hope to have about 10,000 people. Everyone that comes to the event will get a first edition signed copy," he says.
The themes he seems likely to write about are already apparent. At an event earlier this month in Provo, Romney said the policies of the president, including the federal stimulus, had made the recession worse, and that the government needed to stop scaring the private sector with takeovers.
Jowers says the book will offer ideas about turning around a nation some see as in a decline.
"I think he sees the danger. I think he's very optimistic and thinks we're not at that precipice necessarily -- we can continue to ascend -- but I think he sees some very dangerous fault lines," he says.
When it was suggested two weeks ago he sounded like he's running, Romney told us, "No, I sound like I'm working hard for good Republican candidates across the country."
However, with other top Republicans like Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee confronting recent troubles and the economy top of mind, Romney seems poised for another shot.
"If you're a Romney fan, I think everything has broken his way so far," says Jowers.
The website MittRomneyUtah goes live and tickets go on sale this Thursday at 10 a.m.
“Tickets go on sale next week for a major book event in downtown Salt Lake City in March.”
Now there is a hot ticket. ;-)
“We hope to have about 10,000 people. Everyone that comes to the event will get a first edition signed copy,” he says.
Wonder how many they would expect if there wasnt a freebie to get...
Wonder how many will pay for a copy of RINO Romney’s ghost written propaganda...
I’ve never heard of having to pay to go to a book signing before...
All of Sarah’s events are free...
However will the press handle the lack of attendance and fervor that will surely follow him. Oh, maybe the intend to just lie about it, how silly of me.
Like applying Romneycare on a national level. This book will NOT be on a reading list.
Questions will not be tolerated. /s
People have to pay to see Romney, that’s ridiculous. I’ve never heard of a book signing where you have to buy a ticket to see the author.
That thar's gonna be a rare book, LOLOLOL
Where did Romney take time off of, to have the time & energy to autograph ten thousand books? LOL
I have no idea either; however, I find that remark to be very ominous, kind of like SOMETHING bad was supposed to have transpired - that the writer is privy too, and was too ignorant to edit out.
WHAT was 'supposed' to happen to Governor Palin, and why do Romney's book tour pals know something about it????
Where did Romney take time off of, to have the time & energy to autograph ten thousand books?
Romney’s wife, Ann, his five sons, their wives...
that’s 11 working on his “campaign”...
Seamus didnt help...
Not because he couldnt write...
But because he supports the animal lover, Sarah...
I think he’s very optimistic and thinks we’re not at that precipice necessarily — we can continue to ascend —
I think that should be “descend”..
And Romney would think its OK for it to get worse for the US...
What does he care ???
I saw Sarah on Conan O’Brian show making fun of William Shantner and vis a versa. Very good for her.
And Mitt, Harvard Clone, plastic, boring, has a boring, ghost written, platitude soon to be remaindered $1 book and brings it out where? Utah!
As if Mormon Royalty Prep Boy isn’t, rightly or wrongly, tagged as Mr. Mormon himself enough.
Mitt. He’s hopeless.
Pathetic attempt by Romney to remain relevant. Don’t think it’ll work.
Sounds like he wrote the book exclusively for democrats and Obama.

[Now there is a hot ticket. ;-)]
I’ve got my magic underwear packed and ready for the pilgrimage. It will be a Mormon Woodstock, not to be missed.
