Crazy Stupid Love actress Jenny Mollen has landed a deal with St. Martin’s Press for her collection of comedic essays, I Like You Just the Way I Am.

In the past, Mollen’s essays have appeared on The Smoking Jacket and She also enjoys great popularity for her funny tweets. As of this writing, her Twitter page has more than 86,000 followers.

Editor Yaniv Soha negotiated the deal with agent Joseph Veltre (of the Gersh Agency) and secured North American rights. In the release, Soha noted that Mollen’s writing is “much more than the sum of her tweets.” The publisher will release the book in 2014.

Here’s more from the release: “Written in the spirit of Chelsea Handler, Jen Lancaster, and Jenny Lawson, I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not doing the right thing. With stories of Jenny stalking her therapist and punching her best friend in the eye (as a favor), I Like You Just the Way I Am is about acting on impulses, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form.”
