(CNN) – Sarah Palin has inked a book deal with HarperCollins to publish her story of an unlikely political career and meteoric rise from small-town mayor to Republican vice presidential candidate.
"There have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate, and it will be nice through an unfiltered forum to get to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about," Palin told the Anchorage Daily News Tuesday.
"The idea is to focus on the content of the book and what's coming in terms of me being able to tell my story unrestrained and unfiltered."
Palin would not reveal how much money she is being paid for the likely blockbuster memoir. But earlier this year, the Alaska governor secured the services of Robert Barnett, the Washington lawyer who negotiated highly-profitable book deals for Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Several publishes have estimated Palin could easily fetch $7-11 million for the highly-anticipated book. Reached by CNN, Barnett declined to disclose the terms of the deal.
The book is set to hit shelves in the spring of 2010, only a handful of months before Republican White House hopefuls begin to gear up their presidential primary campaigns.
Palin, who obtained a journalism degree from the University of Idaho, also suggested the book will cover more than her improbable and sometimes bumpy vice presidential bid.
"It will be nice to put my journalism degree to work on this and get to tell my story, Alaska's story. There have been so many unauthorized books and publications that have spoken to somebody else's opinion of who I am what my family represents and what Alaska is all about," she said.
In a statement, HarperCollins President Brian Murray called Palin "one of the most charismatic, inspiring and controversial figures to appear on the national political stage for many years."
"She has a fascinating story to tell, and we look forward to publishing what surely will be a captivating book," he said.
