After publishing giant Simon & Schuster dropped his upcoming book following the Capitol Hill riot, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced he will be partnering with Regnery to publish his book, "The Tyranny of Big Tech," this spring.

Hawley has been criticized, along with fellow conservative Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), for encouraging and emboldening the rioters by leading opposition to the certification of the Electoral College vote on January 6.

The day after those violent riots, Simon & Schuster canceled Hawley's book contract with them, prompting the senator to blast them on social media.

Regnery, a well-established conservative publishing house, said it was "proud" to be associated with Hawley.

"Regnery is proud to stand in the breach with him," the organization's president and publisher Thomas Spence said. "And the warning in his book about censorship obviously couldn't be more urgent."
