LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tea party favorite Sharron Angle is spending thousands of dollars to self-publish an autobiography about her life and values.
An AuthorHouse spokesman told The Associated Press Tuesday that Angle contracted the book with the leading self-publishing company this month, just days before she announced her campaign for the U.S. House.
Spokesman Kevin Gray says publishing packages can cost up to $15,000. Copies of the book would be printed by demand.
As a self-publisher, Angle has control over the design and editing of the book. She is hoping for an April release.
Angle, a Republican, lost a heated Senate campaign against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in November. She announced Monday that she's seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for a northern Nevada congressional seat.
