How much? Amy has reportedly scored an advance in the $8 to $10 million range for her book that will be published by Simon & Schuster imprint Books

The publisher told The Associated Press that the book would be a series of comedic essays inspired by the Emmy-winning comedian's family, childhood and career, AceShowbiz reports. This followed an intense bidding war among publishers clamoring to sign the comedian. Earlier the bid was speculated to fetch around $5 to $8 million. A source pegs the final deal at a huge $9 million.

Schumer's rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Amy has many rooting for her including Anne Hathaway and Bette Midler, who have named Schumer as their girl crush, People reported.

Butt out The comedienne didn't take kindly to a text sent her by stand-up comic Colin Quinn and posted it and her snappy response on her Instagram page on Wednesday

The New York native scored a massive win when her show Inside Amy Schumer garnered the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series on Sunday. Last summer, her movie "Trainwreck" also hit the box office.

In truth, much of Schumer's success is linked to the fact that she has no qualms about sharing anything and everything about her private life with audiences, no matter how intimate. She is now writing a comedy with Jennifer Lawrence, in which the pair play sisters. She also tweeted about the project.

Eight publishers in total are believed to have placed bids to land the forthcoming book, and the deal was concluded by Schumer's book agent David Kuhn.
