The hilarious Busy Philipps is about to add writer to her resume.

The Freaks and Geeks alum posted a video on Instagram Wednesday morning, announcing that her book will be out in the latter half of 2018. “I’m not allowed to say the title of it, but it’s a good title,” Philipps teased. She thanked her fans saying, “It wouldn’t have been possible without you,” and then added, “I’ve been waiting my whole life to write this book. I’m just so grateful someone finally asked.”

Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone division will be publishing the book, which the press release calls a “collection of humorous, autobiographical essays.” Readers can look forward to “the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that [Philipps’] Instagram followers have come to know and love, dealing with everything, from growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona and her painful and painfully funny teen years, to her life as a working actress, mother, and famous best friend.”

Philipps will appear in season two of Vice Principals, beginning September 17 on HBO.
