The former American Horror Story star's yet-to-be-titled book was acquired by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and its set to be published sometime in 2017!
The 32-year-old explained that this wouldn't be the first time she's put pen to paper:
"I've been writing since I was a child and have always had so many stories to tell that are too long, shady, and impolite to share in interviews. It brings me much joy to add Published Writer to my résumé of Actor and part-time Foot Model."
Yasss! We LOVE long, shady, and impolite!
What a renaissance woman!
Obvi we NEED for Gabby to elaborate on that whole part-time foot model thing! But we guess we'll just have to buy the book!
