When Big Publishers Want to Get Something Out Fast . . .

There's nothing to it but to do it. Talk about print on demand! Publishers Weekly reports that Collins has gotten a new Sarah Palin book finished in less than a month.
The 96 page: Terminatrix: The Sarah Palin Chronicles (Collins) will join 101 Things You—And John McCain—Didn’t Know About Sarah Palin as the latest humor book on the vice presidential candidate.

This all started on September 8th and went to the printer by September 15th, with 20,000 copies to be in stores on October 14th.

"The book is a satire written by “the editors of the Wasilla Iron Dog Gazette,” although, in the spirit of satire, two HarperCollins editors, Bruce Nichols and Adam Bellow, are “speaking on behalf of the authors.” It features digitally altered photographs of Palin and her family, annotated in “the Governor’s own hand,” which provide “a fascinating running commentary on her life.”
