JUNEAU — A best-selling author accused of helping leak an unpublished tell-all on Sarah Palin is releasing his own book on the former Alaska governor this summer.
Amazon.com lists a Sept. 20 release date for author Joe McGinniss’ “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.”
McGinniss, who wrote a magazine expose on Palin and her natural gas pipeline plans, made headlines last year when he moved next door to the Palins in Wasilla for about three months while researching the book. The move prompted complaints by Palin, who had the fence between their properties extended.
More recently, McGinniss has been accused of helping leak a draft of an unpublished tell-all by former Palin aide Frank Bailey. Details from the manuscript got national attention after the leak to news outlets and Alaska political circles late last week.
