Amber Portrwood is releasing a new book.

Just months after her prison release, the "Teen Mom" star is determined to help others with her story and will soon be doing so with her unique story of triumph. However, her book deal isn't something that just happened. According to a new tweet, Portwood has been working on her book for years.

"My book is to help others," Portwood recently tweeted, according to a July 8 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. "I've had a book deal for years and haven't used it because I felt there was no purpose..but now there is.."

In June 2012, Portwood was sentenced to five years behind bars, but after clocking up tons of good time, the reality star received an early release. During her time behind bars, Portwood was able to dive headfirst into her tell-all, and also participated in several other programs including drug rehabilitation and the choir.

Earlier this month, Portwood opened up about what fans can expect to hear about in her new book.

“It’s a brutally honest account of how bad my life got,” Portwood revealed to In Touch Weekly on July 2 of her tell-all book. “Addiction. Mental illness. Death. Divorce. Betrayal. Violence. Suicide attempts. Felony charges. Rehab. Drug overdoses and jail. I’m going to tell you how it all happened.”

In addition to helping others, Portwood hopes her five-year-old daughter, Leah, will learn from her mistakes.

“I’m living proof that it’s never too late to change your life for the better,” she said.

Portwood's tell-all book, "Never Too Late," has not yet received a release date.
