PALIN FLASHBACK: Palin ‘grateful’ for top spot

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on February 23, 2011

This article by Andy Barr at Politico describes how Going Rogue became a best-seller only two days after the announcement of its release date.

Palin ‘grateful’ for top spot

By ANDY BARR | 9/30/09 8:03 PM EDT

Two days after the release date of Sarah Palin’s book was announced, it’s already become the top seller at both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.  

Palin’s publisher announced Monday that the former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential candidate had finished her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” early and was moving the release date up from the spring to November 17.  

A Palin source told POLITICO that she “is very grateful” for the strong early sales.

“This book has taken off like a rocket,” the source said.  

HarperCollins will print 1.5 million copies for the book’s first run, the same number that was printed for late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir “True Compass.”  

Kennedy’s book, published earlier this month, currently stands at number six on the Amazon list.

A publishing industry source told POLITICO that they “cannot remember a non-fiction book taking off like this in the pre-order market. It became number one only a couple of hours after nothing more than a date announcement. It is truly unprecedented.”  

Much of the 400-page book is based on journals Palin kept during her vice-presidential run.

Palin collaborated on the book with Lynn Vincent, a San Diego-based writer who has co-written several books and was previously a features writer for World magazine, a conservative Christian publication.  

HarperCollins is co-publishing the book with Zondervan, a company that publishes evangelical books, and whose mission statement is “To be the leader in Christian communications meeting the needs of people with resources that glorify Jesus Christ and promote biblical principles.”
