(USA TODAY) A Hillary Rodham Clinton book deal is in place.

Simon & Schuster announced Thursday that it will publish the former secretary of State's memoirnext year.

The tentative publication date is June 2014, and will likely inspire a book tour that will be filled with speculation about whether Clinton will seek the presidency in 2016.

Financial terms were not disclosed; Clinton received $8 million for her 2003 memoirLiving History, also published by Simon & Schuster.

From Simon & Schuster:

"The yet-to-be titled book will use a number of dramatic moments during Secretary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State to frame her thoughts about the recent history of U.S. foreign policy and the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world.

"She will write about her role in, and reflections on, such recent events as the killing of Osama Bin Laden; the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya; the transitions in Iraq and Afghanistan; the Arab Spring; the pivot to the Asia-Pacific; the rise of new powers like China, Brazil, Turkey, and India; building diplomatic coalitions to deal with Iran and North Korea; and our relations with important allies around the world.

"The book will also address many of the major trends reshaping the global landscape of the 21st century - trends in economics, energy and climate change, democracy and human rights, the critical role of women and girls, technology and innovation, health and human development, and more."
