You're invited to join Liberty's Legion!

Liberty, the only live pig on's roster of authors, invites fans to join the newly-launched "Liberty's Legion."

In late November, 2013, the formerly homeless pot-bellied pig became a published author when "The Big Squeal" was released by Oak Tree Press.

Already Liberty's TRUE inspiring story of hope in America's struggling heartland is being read in all 50 states, England, Kuwait, Canada, Mexico and other locales.

Dedicated to "saving" the often overlooked heartland, Liberty is taking her crusade nationally and globally, inviting everyone to join "Liberty's Legion."

Magical powers ignite when the bronze nose of the statue's pig is rubbed for good luck. Liberty's own snout-to-snout encounter is credited with a reversal of fortune culminating in her memoir on

Liberty is also available for interviews!! Please contact

The newest members of "Liberty's Legion" enjoyed a "play date" recently with the literary Liberty, author of "The Big Squeal," a true story of hope in America's heartland.

Liberty thanked her visitors by demonstrating her favorite trick -- rising on her hind legs and pushing her "pigloo" around the yard!

The End!
