NPR linked to an interview with Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, that gave crucial intelligence about the state of Palin’s memoir: “Heath said he gets e-mails when she’s looking for trivial details of her past, like how many points she scored in a high school basketball game or the year the family attended the Boston Marathon. ‘Sarah’s been out of town for almost a month now,’ Heath told The (Idaho) Spokesman-Review. ‘I don’t know exactly where she is, but she’s writing her book.’”

Earlier in the summer, Politico reporter Michael Calderone speculated in a mediabistro.com interview that Palin’s unexpected retirement as governor of Alaska would help her focus on writing her book. (Via Publishers Weekly)
