(CBS/AP) - A former Sarah Palin aide and confidant is ready to tell all.

Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Monday that Frank Bailey, who worked with Palin during her time as governor of Alaska and when she was a vice presidential hopeful, has a book titled "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin" due May 24.

Excerpts from a preliminary draft were leakedto reporters earlier this year. It was nearly 500-pages long and based on 60,000 e-mails Bailey exchanged with Palin when she was governor of Alaska.

Howard Books is calling "Blind Allegiance" a "chilling expose." Author Ken Morris and Alaska political blogger Jeanne Devon helped write the book.

Simon & Schuster and CBS are owned by the same parent company.
