Oprah Winfrey is writing a new memoir.

Flatiron Books, an imprint of Macmillan, has announced The Life You Want, and new memoir from Oprah.

The book is set to be published in January of 2017.

Oprah says her goal with the book is to "inspire other people to live the highest, fullest expression of themselves” and show that “anyone can put their life on a new trajectory."

The memoir is just one part of Oprah's announcement. The new book is part of a deal which will see Oprah get her own book imprint which, according to the AP, will publish several nonfiction books every year.

The memoir is “a remarkable combination of Oprah's life story and the lessons we can all draw from it for our personal growth," says Flatiron Books president Bob Miller. "We're also thrilled to give a home to Oprah's imprint titles. We all know how extraordinary Oprah's instincts are when it comes to choosing books, instincts borne of her lifelong love of reading and the power of the written word.”

Apparently, Oprah has just begun writing the memoir and it will feature "never before told stories."
