Palin got at least $1.25M for Going Rogue

Former U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin received at least $1.25 million US for her memoir, according to a disclosure statement released Tuesday.

Former U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin received at least $1.25 million US for her memoir, according to a disclosure statement released Tuesday.

The figure is not a particularly large one for a political memoir, but it may not be the full shot.

The figure paid by HarperCollins to Palin was revealed in a disclosure statement of Palin's finances from Jan. 1 to July 27, when she resigned as Alaska governor.

Palin has no obligation to disclose her finances for the period when she is out of office and her spokeswoman declined to give more details.

Going Rogue, which Palin claimed to have written in just four months, will be released Nov. 17.

There were unconfirmed reports that she may have been paid close to $7 million US for the book, which will detail her 2008 run for the White House with Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

Palin will appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show the day before its publication. The book is already selling well online.

Much criticized for her political inexperience, Palin worked with ghostwriter Lynn Vincent on her memoir.

Since resigning, she's made only a few public appearances, including a welcome-home ceremony in Fairbanks for soldiers, a group that included her son Track. She also appeared at a gun rights event in Anchorage and continues to post on Facebook.
