Publishers Courting Sarah Palin

images.jpegEven though last week’s backlash still stings, former Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin can look forward to a sweet book deal. According to Page Six, Random House is “eager” to talk with her, and an unnamed publishing insider predicted Palin would score a deal with somebody by the end of the month (which is a few weeks earlier than we predicted last week).

In addition, Linda Mann offered some hilarious cross-platform advice for the popular candidate. Mann is the president of Mann Media, regularly booking celebrities for television: “Her buzz is incredible. She has car-wreck appeal. You’re compelled to watch, hoping she’ll say the dumbest things possible. I’d propose a show combining her love of fashion and lack of brainpower — ‘Project Dumbway.’”

Earlier this year, author Alan Black had some surreal advice for Palin in a GalleyCat interview.
