MUSTANG, Oklahoma -

The high profile George Zimmerman murder trial means extra attention for an Oklahoma book publisher.

Tate Publishing is seeing a spike in sales of it's book released in September of 2012 written by George Zimmerman's best friend.

Mark and Sondra Osterman wrote the book, with proceeds going to Zimmerman's defense fund.

"I think it was a religious mandate that they had to tell someone about George," said the book's ghost writer Rita Tate with Tate Publishing.

Tate spent two and half months with the Ostermans writing "Defending our Friend: The Most Hated Man in America."

"Their one intent was the truth," Tate said.

The book explains how the Ostermans hid Zimmerman and his wife for a month following the death of Trayvon Martin in February of 2012.

"The whole book is almost an outline for the what the defense uses," adds Tate.

Osterman testified on Zimmerman's behalf on July 2.

Tate said suppliers are now asking for more copies.

The publishing company hopes the Osterman's book will give them a chance of publishing any potential book Zimmerman may decide to write.
