Glee star Lea Michele landed a book deal with Random House's Crown Publishing Group.

Brunette Ambition will be released in 2014, according to Harmony Books, an imprint of Random House. In the publisher's announcement on Thursday, they noted that the book will be a combination memoir, style guide and advice book.

The actress will likely be including advice for auditioning for roles, according to The Associated Press. The 26-year old said she hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams.

"There wasn't a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I needed to do, and know, to get to where I am today," the actress said in a statement.

Watson added that the memoir is not a "how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work to make your dreams come true."

Michele is best known as the enthusiastic Rachel Berry in the popular musical series Glee.  Entering her fifth season in the role, she has received much critic acclaim for her performance, including an Emmy nomination. She also received a Teen Choice Award nomination for the role, announced Wednesday.
