Sarah Palin is not selling well on the lecture circuit, an industry insider told the New York Post.
"The big lecture buyers in the US are paralyzed with fear about booking her, basically because they think she is a blithering idiot," the source said. "They don't want to tick people off."
Palin's fee for a recent speech in Hong Kong was rumored to be in the low six figures.
Palin finished her memoir, "Going Rogue," in just four months -- ahead of schedule and in time for the holiday season.
