Conservative Publishing Trend of the Moment

This Tuesday saw the debut of Katie Pavlich's second book, a fast-selling follow-up to the Townhall.com editor's Fast and Furious exposé.

Pavlich's first book reminded me of a tome I saw being handed out and sold at Tea Party events in 2012: a jeremiad about liberal exploitation of black voters, by black conservative Deneen Borelli.

That, in turn, reminded me of this book by Fox News' Monica Crowley.

Publishing trend of the moment: attractive female conservative authors just hanging around, leaning on their book titles.

This is probably the best of the trend.
