palin-carson-CA Ahead of schedule, as it wasn’t due out until spring.  But she finished early.  AP via Anchorage Daily News:

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, has finished her memoir just four months after the book deal was announced, and the release date has been moved up from the spring to Nov. 17, her publisher said.

"Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project," Jonathan Burnham, publisher of Harper, told The Associated Press. "It’s her words, her life …"

Palin’s book, her first, will be 400 pages, said Burnham, who called the fall "the best possible time for a major book of this kind."

The book now has a title: "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Wall Street Journal’s John Fund thinks she’s a soon to be publishing phenom (print run will be 1.5 million), and after talking with Lyn Vincent shed some light on the title of the book.

Ms. Vincent didn’t reveal any details about the book, but did acknowledge it will describe Ms. Palin’s frustration over her treatment by the staffers she inherited from the McCain campaign after her surprise pick as the GOP vice presidential nominee last year. Ms. Palin was booked on grueling interviews with hostile reporters while talk-show hosts such as Glenn Beck couldn’t even get through to her aides. Mr. Beck tells me he was stunned when he picked up the phone one day just before the election to discover Sarah Palin was on the other end of the line. "She explained that she had been blocked from reaching her audience, so she was now ‘going rogue’ and booking her own interviews," Mr. Beck told me. "I was thrilled she had burst out of the cage they’d built for her and we were finally talking."
