Sarah Palin signs book deal

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - Sarah Palin, the Alaska governor pulled from the U.S. political periphery onto the 2008 Republican presidential ticket, has signed a deal to write her memoirs with HarperCollins.

Palin, who was Sen. John McCain's vice presidential pick, did not disclose how much she would be paid by the publisher, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

"This is an incredible opportunity and I am excited to work with HarperCollins to tell my story and Alaska's story," Palin said in a statement.

"There have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate, and it will be nice through an unfiltered forum to get to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about," Palin said in an interview published on the Anchorage Daily News Web site earlier on Tuesday.

Palin complained during last year's unsuccessful campaign about having her comments "filtered" by the mainstream media.
