Sarah Palin Earned At Least a $1.25 Million Memoir Advance

9780061939891.jpgIn an earnings statement, Sarah Palin revealed she has already earned $1.25 million for her upcoming memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.”

According to the Guardian, the former Alaskan governor may have earned another portion of her advance when she turned in her book in late September, “since book advances are often distributed in several parts.” Some have speculated the advance totaled $7 million. In sunnier times for publishing, Hillary Clinton earned a total of $8 million advance for “Living History,” her 2000 memoir.

Here’s more from the article, noting that Palin has sparked a curious literary trend: “Also slated for release November 17 are two books called ‘Going Rouge,’ one a parody colouring book for children, the other a compilation of essays critical of Palin.”
