Kyle-Anne Shiver, syndicated columnist
American Thinker could not be prouder of Kyle-Anne Shiver, the first of our star columnists to enter into a syndication agreement. Soon, newspapers all arcoss America will be featuring Kyle-Anne's unique take on contemporary issues. But only if you, our readers, ask your local newspaper to carry the column currently being offered by Creators Syndicate. Kyle-Anne writes (in her inimitable syle):
Your local newspaper probably carries little in the way of conservative opinion. Perhaps now is the time to suggest that it pick-up Kyle-Anne's syndicated column.
It is with great pleasure -- mixed with some pretty darned stiff trepidation -- that I announce to you my nationally syndicated column contract, recently signed with Creators Syndicate. Creators Syndicate is one of only a few national (now international) syndication firms and it has been downright startling to me that I am wanted in this highly-prized group (http://www.creators.com/b2b.html) of writers. Other Creators columnists, with whom you are probably familiar, include Michael Barone, Tony Blankley, Pat Buchanan, Linda Chavez, Mona Charen, Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, Thomas Sowell and John Stossel, among others.
I am more humbled by this list than you can possibly imagine. Starting a new career at the age of 56 was never in my life plan. As I've said before, if it had not been for 9/11, I would still be whiling away my empty-nested years writing fiction that only a few ever read. Instead, here I am putting in my two cents worth on culture, politics and the defense of our way of life.
9/11 has made some strange bedfellows indeed.
I could not possibly make this announcement without giving my profound thanks to American Thinker and editor, Thomas Lifson. AT provides a forum in the finest American tradition, in which a writer's work stands upon its own merit. No one is barred from submitting and work is judged solely upon the quality of reason and journalistic excellence. I am deeply indebted to American Thinker and its high-class readers, which I believe, are truly the best on the net. I will forever remain a loyal part of the AT team.
I'm hoping that each and every one of you will go to bat for me with your hometown newspaper. If you would like to see me succeed at this, then please contact your local newspapers and ask them to carry my column. All they need do is contact Creators Syndicate sales department and ask for the Friday column of Kyle-Anne Shiver.
I hope to be the voice of the millions and millions of Americans, whose voices are rarely heard in media today, the Americans who fight the wars, raise the children and pay the bills. We are, indeed, the least represented group in the whole darned Country.
I cannot tell you how much every single reader means to me. There is really no greater delight for me, as a writer, than a person who is willing to give me his valuable time to consider what I have written. Whether you love it or hate it, my deepest desire is that I can provoke you to feel something and to think in response to my prose. And when you do, and write to tell me about it, I am happier than a bee in her hive of honey.
I tip my bonnet to every single one of you. You are one of the most delectable delights of my earthly existence.
