Sometimes you work tirelessly into the night for years on end, scribbling away at your precious manuscript that never will be recognized but instead carelessly scattered onto the muddy streets of New York.

And sometimes you’re Caitlyn Jenner and you’re handed a book deal because dollar signs.

Grand Central Publishing announced Tuesday that it will unleash upon the literary world a 2017 memoir by Jenner about her transition. The book will be co-written (read: written) by Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger, who penned the famed Vanity Fair piece about the former Olympian.

Jenner said in a statement through the publisher that with life “moving so quickly,” she is excited to “slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey.”

That we can get behind, at least.
