Former US vice-president Mike Pence has a book deal with Simon & Schuster and his autobiography is scheduled to come out in 2023.
"I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell the story of my life in public service to the American people, from serving in Congress, to the Indiana governor's office and as vice-president of the United States," Pence said in a statement on Wednesday.
Pence is the first major Trump administration official to have an announced deal since the president left office in January, although former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and former secretary of state Mike Pompeo are among those reportedly working on books.
A Pence memoir will likely be subject to similar tensions the former vice-president has faced since he refused then-president Donald Trump's demands that he help overturn the election results.
Among Democrats and others who opposed Trump, Pence is widely seen as Trump's loyal and complicit ally.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters, and Trump himself, denounced him for not intervening on January 6 in Congress's formal certification of Democrat Joe Biden's presidential victory.
The certification - that Pence had no power to change - was delayed for hours after hundreds of Trump supporters, some chanting "Hang Mike Pence", stormed the US Capitol.
Simon & Schuster vice-president and publisher Dana Canedy said Pence's book would be "revelatory", without specifically saying whether he would address the events of January 6.
Simon & Schuster said it had also signed Pence to a second book but did not immediately provide details.
