Sarah Palin's new book now has a title, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, and a release date, Nov. 23, publisher HarperCollins announced Tuesday.

Alaska's ex-governor and former GOP vice-presidential candidate, whose memoir Going Rogue has sold more than two million copies, has been working on a tribute to American values.

It will include "selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her," according to HarperCollins, along with "the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favourite songs and movies."

The book is inspired not only by her "strong belief in the importance of family, faith, and patriotism," but by some of the people she met last year while promoting Going Rogue. Palin skipped major cities such as Seattle and Los Angeles, traditional stops on most author tours, and instead focused on smaller communities more receptive to her conservative message.

"The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family," the statement from HarperCollins reads.

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said Palin will likely tour for America By Heart, but added that details are still being arranged.

The book will have a first printing of one million copies and a list price of $25.99 US.

Conservative author Lynn Vincent worked with Palin on Going Rogue, but the publisher said it did not yet know who would collaborate with her on the new book.

A digital version will be published the same day.
