Where are the New Books by Progressive/Liberal/Democrats?

We are already over a year into Trumps presidency, and I still see no books by high profile like minded people that are meant to rally the troops into taking down this presidency. Early on, I saw one by Elizabeth Warren and there was a reprint by Bermie Sanders. And then, of course, there was one by Hilary explaining why she lost. I am going berserk. Republicans always have books out, even when their guy is in the White House. When Rush Limbaugh published his book, it was like a calling card for Republicans. And they used it as an excuse to annoy Democrats. And this was during Bill Clinton's presidency. You know, the one in which when he lost congress, Republicans actually got a crap load of what they actually wanted, and then spent the rest of the time complaining about how horrible they thought the Clintons were? I am of course, totally understanding the predicament that Clinton was in. The Republicans were masterful in attacking him once they got going. Which outlines the point. Somebody needs to stop just writing about single issues, or even baseball, and step up to the plate and write a cultural phenomenon that helps us blast these people out of the water. My dream is for one by Rachel Maddow.
