Duff's first book, a novel called "Elixir," focuses on a young tabloid darling named Clea Raymond, who moonlights as a photojournalist under an alias. After her father goes missing on a humanitarian trip to Brazil, she begins seeing a strange figure in her photographs.

The actress-singer, who recently married hockey player Mike Comrie, is embarking on a book tour that kicked off with her signing copies in New York on Monday. She also appeared on the "Today" show talking about the book that morning.

"Elixir" hits stores Tuesday, and Duff already seems to be getting a positive reaction from her fans. She posted on her Twitter account, "Glad to hear you guys are liking the book! YESSSSS!!!!"
