Palin Bio

When S&S’s conservative imprint, Threshold Editions, known for its fall bestseller, Obama Nation, signed up an unauthorized bio of Sarah Palin back in September, speculation was that the book’s success depended on whether she won her bid for the  vice presidency.

The book, Trailblazer, was released this week and even though Palin is not the vp, it’s making headlines. The author, Lorenzo Benet, is Assistant Editor at People. This week’s issue features the book is a story about Bristol Palin and her new baby (the online version is the #1 most-read story of the week).

The big “news” in the book that’s making headlines? Palin kept her pregnancy with her son Trig a secret because she wanted to shield her daughters from media attention.

The book was embargoed, so it was not reviewed prepub and few libraries have it on order. It is currently at #1,056 on Amazon, making it unlikely to appear on weekly bestseller lists.
