(H/T PalinUpdates on Twitter)
FYI: In case you heard and believed the rumor that there would be a separate Christian version of Going Rogue, U.S. News and World Report cleared that up today in "No Separate Christian Version of Sarah Palin Memoir Planned," by Dan Gilgoff.
News reports that Sarah Palin is planning a separate Christian version of her forthcoming memoir, Going Rogue, are false, according to her publisher, HarperCollins. The reports were so widely circulated that they appear to have caused confusion at Zondervan, a Christian publisher owned by HarperCollins, where the director of publicity said yesterday that a special Christian edition of the book had been planned but was scrapped because of the expedited timetable for the book's release.
Reports about a special Christian edition of Palin's memoir included a long Vanity Fair profile on Palin last summer, which said that her memoir was to be published "not only by HarperCollins but also in a special edition by Zondervan, the Bible-publishing house, that may include supplemental material on faith."
In an interview yesterday, Zondervan publicity director Karen Campbell said that a separate Christian edition had been planned but that "when the release date was moved up, they left it as the same version."
In an E-mail message today, Campbell said she misspoke. "Zondervan never planned on publishing a separate Christian edition of Going Rogue with supplemental material," she said. "From what I understand, it was misreporting."
All that Governor Palin intends to share will be found in Going Rogue: An American Life, already a best-seller. So pre-order yours today at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Borders.
