CNN morning anchor Alisyn Camerota will be publishing a novel that focuses on the "challenges and behind-the-scenes fun" of cable news, according to her publisher.

Camerota, the current co-anchor of CNN's "New Day" and a former "Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host on Fox News, has teamed with Viking Publishing to publish "Amanda Wakes Up" in July.

“If there's one subject I know through and through, it's the challenges and behind-the-scenes fun of cable news," explains Camerota, 50. "Being able to assign real-life dilemmas to a fictional character was strangely comforting and instructive."

"I started this book years ago and am grateful that Viking has been on board the whole way for this crazy ride."

Viking describes the book as a "wickedly funny debut about a bootstrapping young reporter who lands a plum job at a big-time cable news station and finds her ambitions and her love life turned upside down."

Camerota was with Fox News for 16 years, from 1998-2014, before going to CNN to replace Kate Bolduan as Chris Cuomo's co-anchor on "New Day.
