Michael Vick has canceled book signings for his new autobiography, “Finally Free,” because of death threats. The Eagles quarterback was scheduled to promote the book in Atlanta, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but dropped out after “very disturbing” threats to Vick, his family and book stores stemming from his past involvement in a dog fighting ring. “We understand that a lot of people out there will never forgive him,” spokesman Chris Shigas told Philly.com. “But at what point do we say a line has been crossed?”
Sarah Palin is expanding her literary oeuvre with a new book: “A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas,” reports AP. The book, coming from HarperCollins in November, takes aim at over-commercialism and nontraditional celebrations: “This will be a fun, festive, thought provoking book, which will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas,” Palin said in a statement from the publisher. D.C. superlawyer Bob Barnett, who repped Palin’s previous two books, negotiated this one, too.
