The spotlight that enveloped Gov. Jan Brewer after she signed the nation’s toughest illegal immigration law is expanding into the publishing world.

On November 1, Broadside Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, will release “Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border” The 208-page book is already available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

According to HarperCollins’ website, the book details how “America’s toughest governor defends her state and calls on President Obama to keep our border safe.”

HarperCollins website for the book also includes a quote from martial arts star and conservative icon Chuck Norris: “America’s remedy for securing the borders is three words: Gov. Jan Brewer.”

The Web page describes Brewer as “one of the most popular conservative political figures in America today,” citing her 400,000 Facebook fans and million-plus YouTube views. The page outlines her battles with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Obama administration over SB 1070.

“At the center of the controversy is the state’s Republican governor, Jan Brewer, a woman who has been hailed as a politician so tough she eats ‘scorpions for breakfast,’” read the description on HarperCollins’ website. “In this sure-to-be headline-making book, Governor Brewer offers an in-depth explanation of the factors behind the law, detailing the scope of the immigration problem and its impact on Arizona, and makes a case for allowing states to override federal authority when necessary.”

Brewer’s office did not immediately answer messages seeking comment.


  1. I think a better title for the book would have been:

    “Tales from the AZ Crypt” because of her uncanny resemblance to the Crypt Keeper.

  2. A better title would have been ” Memoirs of an ugly old *****”.
