Bachmann memoir due this fall

(CNN) – She's a congresswoman, presidential candidate and now author.

Michele Bachmann is publishing a memoir scheduled for release this November according to Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin Group publishing.

Sentinel released a statement Monday saying the memoir will, "share previously untold stories about her life outside of politics, including her roles as a tax attorney, a wife, a mother of five and a foster mother of 23. She will describe her leap into local politics and her unique path to national prominence, as well as her vision for America's future."

The release also said Bachmann will not receive any advance against royalties, citing rules in the House of Representatives.

Bachmann isn't the only candidate coming out with a memoir this fall, a common practice among White House hopefuls. Republican Herman Cain is also set to release his own title in October. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney released one in February.

Sentinel said the book is currently untitled and is scheduled to go on sale nationwide November 21, a little less than a year before the 2012 election.

    Proving once and for all that she is just another grifter in the mold of Trump, GIngrich and Palin whose primary motivation for running for POTUS is personal financial enrichment.

    well here we go again. This person think she's can use God on her side to win the White House , I hate to be the bearer of bad news but God is not in the politics. She might want to rethink how she's looking at all these disasters and get on her knees and pray for forgiveness.

    What has she ever accomplished to write about???? I thought you had to have done something first. All she has done is make a fool of herself. That is already well documented on the evening news and by all the comedians.

    Bachman seems to think that she can entice corporations to bring back trillions of dollars they've got in other country by promising to lower their taxes. She forgot to promise them to lower labor salaries by getting rid of the middle class like what governor perry is doing in Texas. She also forgot to mention cutting out the numerous competition these corporations have to deal with, when they can bring the American bran to a country that will kill to get a piece of America. America has only 300 million people, we are saturated with sales companies because no one in their right mind will open up manufacturing jobs, because paying workers is too much money compare to china and India. America has seen it's best days since were in a global economy with global competition. The only way America can mov ahead is to out build out innovate, and out educate. The repugs only stresses taxes and regulations, they will never mention demand which is the real reason America is in this current mess. America is a giant sales store, since our manufacturing jobs have left for cheaper labor over seas, and if consumers are not coming through that door forget it.

    This is the ONLY thing that could reasonably justify why she threw her flipped wig into the Presidential race: she's promoting her book sales.
