Palin received $1.5 million retainer for book

 

The Anchorage Daily News

Sarah Palin reported in financial disclosures out this morning that she received $1.25 million from publisher HarperCollins as "retainer for book."

The report doesn't give a date for when Palin received the money. But the disclosures cover money that Palin received during her final seven months as governor, from Jan. 1 to July 26.

No other details are offered on the book deal, but a retainer would just be an upfront piece of her money. Palin's memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life," is to hit bookstores on Nov. 17.

These are the final financial disclosure reports that Palin is required to file with the Alaska Public Offices Commission.

The disclosures also include Palin reporting that she received $73,000 in salary and $6,370 in per diem during those final months before resigning as governor.
