Will “Going Rogue” be fruit of the Vine?

Unless you live under a rock you know that Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue is #1 everywhere right now.

If I order it now I will join the long queue at the end of the line to get a copy.

However there is the possibility that the book might be offered via the Amazon Vine program of which I’m a member.

It’s highly unlikely. From what I figure vine is used to generate some buzz on a less known item. The book doesn’t need buzz to sell. I also suspect that they will want the biggest splash on release and the shortest gap between reviews and release but it is possible.

But the chance is there.

As a rule the first few minutes during the Vine newsletters releases are the remote equivalent of a mob at a store going after 10 “Tickle me Elmo” dolls, primarily due to cool electronics occasionally offered. If the Palin book goes up on either the prelim newsletter or on the main one you will see computers crashing and servers dying like you never saw before.

I’d better get the books I have now read and reviewed quickly just in case.

Oh and if I’m wrong and the book IS offered through vine AND I manage to get one I promise to get it read and reviewed as soon as humanly possible.
