NEW YORK (AP) — Rick Perry has the book world's attention.
The Texas governor and recently declared GOP presidential candidate is the subject of new book by James C. Moore, co-author of the anti-Bush best seller "Bush's Brain," and Jason Stanford. Metropolitan Books, an imprint of Henry Holt and Company, announced Tuesday that the book is scheduled for early 2012.
Meanwhile, a book by Perry himself received a sales bump after he announced his candidacy Saturday.
The hardcover of "Fed Up!" has moved into the top 400 on Amazon.com and is out of stock until Friday. The conservative policy book was released last year.
The foreword is by Newt Gingrich, one of Perry's rivals for the Republican nomination.
