Former Alaskan Governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has reportedly finished her much anticipated memoir and you can buy it in time for Christmas! Sarah’s book is called “Going Rogue: An American Life” and will be released on November 17th which is months earlier then anticipated. You can read more below, see Sarah Palin photos, and a fun video.
After Governor Sarah Palin resigned from office on July 26th, she, her husband Todd and their children left Alaska for San Diego to work with her book’s co-writer, Lynn Vincent, for several weeks. I suppose they really got down to business because the draft of Sarah Palin’s book, called “Going Rogue: An American Life”, was finished in advance and is now in the editing/fact check stage. Her publisher, HarperCollins, has decided to release Sarah Palin’s 400-page memoir on November 17th just in time for the holiday buying season, instead of spring when it was originally scheduled.
I love that Sarah Palin has named her book “Going Rogue”! She is playfully giving a nod to that now famous Slate article suggesting that by the end of the November 2008 Presidential campaign, she and McCain’s campaign staff were at serious odds and whispers suggested that Sarah was “going rogue” on McCain.
I suspect Sarah will talk about her upbringing; Todd and her children; her public service career; all those frivolous lawsuits in Alaska whose sole purpose was to embarrass and harass her. I also suspect she will dish a bit: the 2008 Presidential election and all those “unnamed McCain staffers” who ripped her to shreds afterwards, and the incredible abuse her family has withstood from un-funny has-been comedians and other elitists. Maybe she’ll even hint a bit at future plans.
The publisher is clearly anticipating a huge demand for Sarah Palin’s memoir. The first printing is of 1.5 million copies which coincidentally is the same as the first run for Teddy Kennedy’s memoir, True Compass. Sarah Palin’s book is on the stands November 17th and I am quite certain it will be huge. She’s already a hot commodity on the Speaker’s circuit. And frankly, can you even imagine how delicious all the book interviews on TV will be? Personally, I can’t wait. I’ve missed seeing her on the political stage, though she has certainly made an impact in the healthcare debate.
Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin is really fascinating and really quite fearless. The key question is: Who will buy more copies of Sarah Palin’s Book ‘Going Rogue: An American Life’, the Palin-lovers or the Palin-haters?
