Every candidate does it, and now so will Donald Trump: roll out a campaign book. And his book is going to be huuuuge.

Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Monday that The Donald’s new tome is scheduled for publication on October 27. It does not yet have a listed title.

“I am excited to announce that work on my new bestseller is almost done and I’ll have a new book out from Threshold Editions and Simon & Schuster later this year,” Trump said in the publisher’s press release. “Not since The Art of the Deal have I had this much fun writing a book.”

A quick fact check: Not only is the book not a bestseller — it hasn’t even sold a single copy.
