A book promotion break for Epicenter Press

Kaylene Johnson's biography of Palin, Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment on Its Ear (the lucky publisher is Epicenter Press, and the pub date was April 2008) broke into Amazon's Top 25 list within hours of the big announcement.

I heard a news report this morning that said the publisher is going back to press for 50,000 more copies immediately. That is probably a good idea.

One individual from the U.K. who posted a used copy of the book on Amazon is asking $105.55 for it.

Epicenter Press is an independent publisher, and they couldn't have planned on this book promotion opportunity. Good for them! I wonder what percentage of the proceeds they plan to pass along to John McCain.
