Shonda Rhimes can soon add author to her resume. The mastermind behind ?Grey?s Anatomy? and ?Scandal? announced through Simon Schuster VP and Editor-in-Chief Marysue Rucci on Tuesday, June 2 that she would be publishing her first memoir ?Year of Yes? in November this year.

In December last year, Rhimes, who?s also a self-proclaimed introvert, accepted a challenge to say yes to any unexpected invitations for a year. The book will chronicle her journey into the agreement and the powerful impact saying ?yes? had on her life.

During a press release, Rhimes said that she initially didn?t want to share the ?embarrassing? story publicly. ?Saying yes for an entire year turned out to be one of the most amazing decisions I have ever made,? Rhimes said. ?It was also a little insane, a lot terrifying and sometimes wildly embarrassing.?

?So this is not a story I ever planned to share with anyone,? she added. ?However, once Simon & Schuster asked me, I had no choice ? what else could I say but yes??

?It?s mind-boggling that the mega-talented Shonda Rhimes, one of the most admired and accomplished women in Hollywood, would feel the need to challenge her status quo,? Rucci said at the event. ?But by saying yes for a year, she truly transformed her life for the better in every way.?

Rucci added that the book was ?surprising, hilarious, poignant, and accessible. It?s easy to imagine this book inspiring a movement and we couldn?t be more excited to publish it at Simon & Schuster.?
