The Hermanator’s got a book deal.

Herman Cain, a Republican running for president in 2012, has inked a deal to write an autobiography published by Simon & Schuster. The book “Who is Herman Cain?” is set to be released in October, according to the publisher’s website. (Herman Cain loses top staffers)

A spokesman with Simon & Schuster did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, has never held elective office before, but has a loyal following among conservatives. He is still largely unknown, something the book publisher likely hopes to profit on as he garners more excitement for his candidacy.
