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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
