(Dec. 3) -- Make room, Sarah Palin.

Just a month after being roundly defeated in the Delaware Senate race, tea party icon Christine O'Donnell has signed a book deal to "set the record straight" on the 2010 elections and the current state of American politics.

O'Donnell, who won the Republican primary in an upset after being endorsed by Palin, will "take the reader behind the scenes of her race for the Senate and embody O'Donnell's identification with America's frustrations and concerns with the current political climate," the publisher, St. Martin's Press, said in a statement.

Christine O'Donnell announced her book deal on Twitter.

The book deal comes amid a little friendly competition by other high-profile conservatives on the book circuit. Palin's latest book, "America by Heart," is No. 2 on The New York Times best-seller list this week, second only to President George W. Bush's memoir, "Decision Points."

The name of O'Donnell's book and the price of the deal weren't disclosed.

In a Twitter message Thursday, O'Donnell appeared to be so over her failed Senate bid. "You heard the spin about the 2010 elections. It's time to set the record straight & move forward - signed a book deal w St. Martins Press!" she tweeted.

In a statement, O'Donnell, who took heat during her campaign for her unusual statements on masturbation and witchcraft, said the midterm elections were the start of a revolution. "The 2010 midterm elections were just the beginning -- the first rumblings of a revolution that has not fully erupted," she said. "I plan on making my book one of the revolution's catalysts."

The book is expected to be published in August.
