Lea Michele is the latest star to ink a book deal.

The "Glee" actress has a deal with Harmony Books, a Random House Inc. imprint. Harmony Books announced Thursday that "Brunette Ambition" will come out in the spring of 2014. The publisher is billing the book as a combination memoir, style guide and advice book.

Michele said in a statement: "There wasn't a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work to make your dreams come true."

The 26-year-old is best known as the ever-striving, aspiring Broadway star Rachel Berry on "Glee." She also starred in the Broadway production "Spring Awakening" and the film "New Year's Eve."

Michele isn't the first member of the "Glee" cast to publish a book. Chris Colfer has already published one novel for young readers, "The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell," and has a second title, "The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns" set to arrive on bookshelves Aug. 9. Jenna Ushkowitz's "Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You" was released earlier this month, and Jayne Lynch's memoir, "Happy Accidents," was published last year.
