It's been a long time coming, but Lena Dunham has finally unveiled her book. You know the one that reportedly scored her a $3.7 million publishing deal? The actress, writer and producer is adding author to her long list of accomplishments. And she's using Instagram to announce it to the world.

Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned" is the title of Dunham's book, which will be hitting shelves this fall. After a highly-publicized bidding war, Random House will publish her memoir that details personal moments from her life. You can read part of the official description below.

Lena Dunham reminds us of the power of love letters >>

This book contains stories about wonderful nights with terrible boys and terrible days with wonderful friends, about ambition and the two existential crises I had before the age of twenty. About fashion and its many discontents. About publicly sharing your body, having to prove yourself in a meeting full of fifty-year-old men and the health fears (tinnitus, lamp dust, infertility) that keep me up at night. I’m already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you with this book, but also my future glory in having stopped you from trying an expensive juice cleanse or having the kind of sexual encounter where you keep your sneakers on.

Not That Kind of Girl sounds like a pseudo-self-help book, but Dunham claims she's not an expert. She even pens this disclaimer: "No, I am not a sexpert, a psychologist or a registered dietician. I am not a married mother of three or the owner of a successful hosiery franchise. But I am a girl with a keen interest in self-actualization, sending hopeful dispatches from the front lines of that struggle."

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and is scheduled for release Oct. 7.
