Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who has claimed she had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump a decade ago, says she has written a no-holds-barred memoir about her running legal battles with the President and her life as a stripper.
Ms Daniels, 39, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said on ABC’s The View that her book, Full Disclosure, would be released by St Martin’s Press, a subsidiary of MacMillan Publishers, on October 2.
Mr Trump has denied having an affair with Ms Daniels.
Ms Daniels said she wrote about her work as well as suing Mr Trump.
Her lawsuit seeks to void a non-disclosure agreement she signed just before the 2016 presidential election to remain silent about what she has called an “intimate” relationship with Mr Trump.
She claimed in the lawsuit, filed in March in Los Angeles, that the non-disclosure agreement was invalid and she was free to publicly discuss her relationship with Mr Trump because he never signed it.
"I'm going to write everything."

Mr Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to violating federal election law by paying Ms Daniels $US130,000 ($181,324) not to disclose information that would be harmful to Mr Trump.
“You didn’t really think I’d hold anything back?” Ms Daniels said on TV on Wednesday.
St Martin’s Press said in a statement that Ms Daniels’ book would describe “the events that led to the non-disclosure agreement and behind the scenes attempts to intimidate her”.
In April, Ms Daniels filed a defamation lawsuit against Mr Trump in a Manhattan court claiming that he had falsely attacked her truthfulness.
Earlier this year, Ms Daniels said in 2011 she was assailed by a man in a Las Vegas car park who threatened her if she discussed her alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.
In a tweet, Mr Trump described her claim as a “total con job”.
