Sarah Palin's Book Has a Release Date

COMING SOON, TO A REMAINDER TABLE NEAR YOU.... Readers everywhere are burning with anticipation.


Sarah Palin's much-anticipated memoir now has a title and a new release date, two advisers to the former Alaska governor confirmed to CNN on Monday.

Palin's book will be called "Going Rogue: An American Life" -- a reference to the anonymous criticism directed at Palin by aides to Republican presidential nominee John McCain during the final days of last year's presidential race. [...]

The book's publisher, Harper, has ordered a substantial first printing of 1.5 million copies and moved up the release date to November 17 -- conveniently in time for the holiday shopping season. The memoir was originally slated for release in the spring of 2010.

Why was the release moved up? Apparently, Palin's book was completed faster than expected. The former governor's book deal was announced just four months ago, and the 400-page text is apparently already complete.
