Palin Gets Booked

The lamestream media told you:

A new biography on Sarah Palin is now available and here’s the book’s author, with some softball questions aimed at her. FOX TV.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

How did anyone get a book out on Sarah within two weeks of her appearance as a VP candidate? Being in the book publishing business, that’s, well, impossible.

The book by Kaylene Johnson actually came out in April, by a small press in Washington state (Epicenter) that specializes in books about Alaska. The 7K run of the hardback was called, “Sarah: How a Small Town Girl Turned Alaska's Political Establishment on Its Ear.”

After the announcement, the book went through a facelift and was rushed out over the Labor Day weekend by a print-on-demand outfit (Lightning Source) that paid workers overtime to work the holiday weekend, and “Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment Upside Down” was now a 40K-unit paperback available nationally. Tyndale House took over distribution and put 250K copies into print. That’s how. Thanks to the Southern Review of Books for the details. Other Palin books are reportedly in the pipeline.

My latest book, “The Heller Case: Gun Rights Affirmed!” is due off press this week and has attracted no attention from lamestream media, though large advanced orders have been placed by most major gun-rights groups in the nation, and is still available at a pre-press discount.
