(Newser) – Hillary Clinton's memoir of her time as secretary of state is on its way, with Simon & Schuster announcing the deal today and tentatively aiming to publish it in June 2014, reports USA Today. Financial details of the book were not disclosed, but Clinton earned $8 million for her 2003 book, Living History. As yet untitled, Clinton's new book will look at the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Arab Spring, and "the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world," according to Simon & Schuster. The book and its associated publicity tour is expected to fuel speculation over a potential run at the presidency in 2016.
