Sarah Palin is going on a 15-city tour to promote her new Christmas book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy."

The tour by the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee includes stops in swing states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and Wisconsin but mostly travels through red America. It will last from Tuesday until Nov. 22, with more dates after Thanksgiving.

Palin remains an infrequent player on the national political stage, embarking on the occasional tour and appearing on Fox News Channel. She has said she will remain active in Republican primaries in the 2014 election.

Palin announced the tour on her Facebook page.
