Sarah Palin's publisher plans to announce the title of her eagerly anticipated memoir Tuesday: "Going Rogue: An American Life." The memoir's publication will also be moved up four or five months -- from spring of next year to Nov. 17 -- to respond to high demand and catch the holiday book-buying season.
"Going Rogue" will receive an initial printing of 1.5 million copies, the same number as Ted Kennedy's "True Compass." Palin's first book will be 400 pages long, and was completed a breezy four months after the deal was announced.
"Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project," said Jonathan Burnham, publisher of Harper. "It's her words, her life, and it's all there in full and fascinating detail."
After leaving office July 26, Palin traveled with her husband to the San Diego home of Lynn Vincent, her collaborator and an editor at World
magazine, to work on the book. Later, she spent several days in New York going over the final edits. Palin originally had a deadline of Sept. 15, but turned in her manuscript early. The book is currently undergoing copy-editing and fact-checking, which have been dramatically sped up to meet the new publication schedule. Palin's Title: 'Going Rogue'
