Presidential contender Michele Bachmann has a book deal for a memoir that will arrive in November and already has been completed. The book, reports of which first circulated in June, is currently untitled. The publisher, the Sentinel imprint of Penguin Books, would not comment to Fox News
on reports that Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund co-wrote the memoir.
Bachmann is not permitted to receive an advance against royalties as a member of the House of Representatives. She will "share previously untold stories" about her private life, "including her roles as a tax attorney, a wife, a mother of five and a foster mother of 23,” the publisher told Fox in a statement.
"People are the most important ingredient in life," Bachmann said in a statement issued Monday through Sentinel. "I love people, and I care deeply that our nation's economy turns around so they can realize their American dream. This book will help to share my enthusiasm for an energized, pro-growth economy, and the life experiences that inform my optimism for the American people and for American greatness."
Doug Sachtleben, a Bachmann spokesman, said the book rollout shouldn't detract from her campaign.
"Throughout Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Florida, the congresswoman has kept a full schedule of meeting and talking with thousands of people, and she will continue with that full campaign schedule all through the days up to and beyond the release of her memoir," Sachtleben said.
Bachmann's climb comes barely five years after her arrival in Washington. The outspoken congresswoman tapped into anger about taxes and government spending that gave rise to the tea party and paired it with a social conservative following she honed in Minnesota.
