Incredible Announcement

Every so often, life brings a surprise that's so awesome, you just have to hold your breath and squinch your eyes shut for a minute to see if it's still there when you open them. Ever since I've started working for Valor Publishing Group, I've had several of these moments, from getting to work with Utah State Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to meeting people I've always wanted to meet. Today I found out that another amazing opportunity is coming my way. And it's coming your way, too ...

Before Cleon Skousen passed away, he wrote four additional books, and bequeathed them to his sons with the charge of finding a publisher who would take them on and do them justice. Valor Publishing, the company I work for, just signed the contract with the Skousen sons, and we are releasing the first manuscript in April of this year. How amazing is that—one of the most well-respected, knowledgeable spiritual scholars we have ever had, and there are four more books to add to his already well-established list of publications? And how amazing is it that I get to be part of it? I’m honestly so mindboggled by it.

The first book is called “Cleansing of America” and details the prophecies concerning America leading up to the latter days. In reading this book preparatory to editing it, I have been very touched by the power and magnitude of the words. I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

And … and … I have even more awesome news. First thing Monday morning, you can go to the Valor website and place your preorder for 10% off, and you will get your copy at least a week before the books hit any store shelves. Monday is going to be an incredible day for fans of Brother Skousen’s as we have the chance to get in line for this first book. We are preparing our website right this minute to handle massive amounts of traffic we know will come our way on Monday – this is so incredible, and so huge, we will be busy processing your orders.

Books ordered on Monday will not be shipped until the last week of March, but you will get your copy far in advance of any store. Please join us in celebrating this monumental moment in LDS literary history!
