Michele Bachmann memoir due out in November
NEW YORK (CBS/AP) November is shaping up to be a big month for political memoirs.
We've already learned of the publication that month of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's "No Higher Honor," which covers her years in the Bush administration.
Now, we learn that a yet-untitled memoir by GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann will be published in November by Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin Group (USA).
Sentinel, which made the announcement Monday, declined comment on whether Bachmann had assistance on the book, which already has been written. Former Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund said reports that he worked on it were wrong. He said that he had no involvement with the book.
According to Sentinel, Bachmann 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."
As a member of the House of Representatives, Bachmann is not permitted to receive an advance against royalties.
Virtually all of the Republicans candidates have published books, a standard for modern presidential campaigns.
