When the announcement of Mercury Ink was made back in June, Kevin Balfe, SVP of Mercury Radio Arts, promised, “With Mercury Ink, we can work with the best writers around to bring their vision to our audience while maintaining the high standard of quality that Glenn’s own books are known for.”

“I am so excited about this book,” Glenn told listeners back in June. Glenn said that he had been looking new ways to reach out to kids, and Michael Vey provided a new way to connect with them. “How do we possibly do teach really good values and lessons without teaching. If a kid smells there’s a lesson – they’re done.”

Glenn said he was thinking of a book or a graphic novel that would accomplish this, but then he got a phone call from Richard Paul Evans who told him about the Michael Vey series. Glenn said that during his conversation with Evans, the author told him he felt that Glenn and his company should be the ones to publish it. After speaking with Glenn and Kevin Balfe, Evans sent a copy of the manuscript to Balfe, who passed it to Glenn’s agent George. George immediately walked it across the street to a thirteen-year-old neighbor. The next day, the kid told George it was the best book he ever read – and Michael Vey passed its first test.

Glenn gave it to his daughter, who raved about the book and ultimately convinced Glenn to publish it under Mercury Ink. “I think it’s as good as Twilight or Harry Potter quite frankly,” Glenn told fans.

In an interview with GlennBeck.com, Evans said that he first started had the idea of writing the book while working on his other book, The Gift, about a boy who also had a special power – the power to heal. Evans also has a long love of superheroes and felt that Michael Vey is “the book I always wanted to read when I was little.”

When writing the book, Evans said that he was transported back to his own childhood. While he doesn’t share Vey’s superpowers, Evans also grew up with Tourette’s syndrome and wasn’t popular with cheerleaders and the “in crowd”. Evans had been wanting to publish a Young Adult novel for a long time but had been looking for the right story. When he came up with Michael Vey, he knew he had discovered a story he loved – and the response from readers has been very positive.

Evans hopes that young kids and families will discover a love for reading through the book, and that parents end up enjoying it as much as the kids. He has already found children falling in love with it, as they sent advanced copies out to some schools. The children, who were not allowed to take the book home, would start coming to school early to get their hands on the book – and one student even tried to bribe their teacher with lunch money to get their teacher to let them take the book out of class.

Video from a school that got an advanced copy can be seen below:

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
