Unconquered is the first book to tie together the amazing lives of first cousins Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, and Mickey Gilley in one comprehensive work.
Jerry Lee has conquered many of his demons and is miraculously the last man left standing of the original rock ‘n’ roll giants, still recording and performing.
Jimmy has endured on his evangelistic path and his ministry continues to beam his music and message without apology or compromise.
Mickey continues to perform at his theater in Branson, Missouri and savors the joy he finds through building personal connections with his fans.
Unconquered will appeal to readers of all ages, male and female. It will garner strong interest among those interested in any or all of the three main characters, each of whom has his own distinct fan base.
Jerry Lee Lewis has a vast following of music fans of all ages and across several continents; Jimmy Swaggartreaches into the homes of tens of millions of potential viewers each week; Mickey Gilley has a huge following of country music fans, and of people, numbering in the millions, who know of him through his club, Gilley’s, which became the world’s largest, most storied honky tonk. (Mickey Gilley already has a mention of the prospective book on his own website.)
Here are some points that will give you a sense of the persistent interest in Lewis, Swaggart, and Gilley, even now, when all three are in their midseventies.
Jerry Lee Lewis continues to tour, playing regularly to audiences of thousands. He is routinely honored at distinguished gatherings as a pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll. His widely acclaimed album, Last Man Standing, released in 2007, was the best-selling album of his career, and was followed, in 2010, by another successful album, Mean Old Man. As popular as he still is in the United States, he is arguably more popular throughout Europe.
