(Newser) – With 2 million copies sold, and Going Rogue still on bestseller lists, Sarah Palin is already working on another book, the AP reports. The untitled, release-date-TBA work will be a “celebration of American virtues and strengths” and “include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have inspired her, as well as portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her love of country, faith, and family,” the HarperCollins statement reads. Gawker has some alternate suggestions:

  • A new translation of Beowulf, embarked upon after Palin found “Seamus Heaney's landmark 1999 translation ‘weak-willed and, frankly, derivative,’” writes Adrian Chen.
  • “An indie graphic novel which uses sparse, black-and-white panels to interweave the stories of a 19th century Alaska homesteader, a Wasilla beauty queen from the 1970s, and the modern-day Wesleyan comparative literature professor obsessed with tracing the connections between them.”
  • "Going Rogue II: Going Even Roguer, which details the harrowing four months since the first Going Rogue came out."
  • Chen also has a few ideas about Palin’s upcoming TV project—to read those, click here.
