LAS VEGAS -- Tea party favorite Sharron Angle is spending thousands of dollars to self-publish an autobiography about her life and values.
An AuthorHouse spokesman told The Associated Press Tuesday that Angle contracted the book with the leading self-publishing company this month, just days before she announced her campaign for the U.S. House.
Spokesman Kevin Gray says publishing packages can cost up to $15,000. Copies of the book would be printed by demand.
As a self-publisher, Angle has control over the design and editing of the book. She is hoping for an April release.
Angle, a Republican, lost a heated Senate campaign against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in November. She announced Monday that she's seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for a northern Nevada congressional seat.
Carson Now reports from a press conference held on Monday by Angle:
As the press conference wrapped up, Angle named upcoming events on her calendar and said her new book, an autobiography that will share personal, formative things, will be out on April. The book is entitled “Right Angle” and will be self-published under Author House.
