The tentative title of the book is “Not That Kind of Girl: Advice by Lena Dunham,” and some say Dunham’s literary agency is asking publishers for at least $1 million for the book.

The book would cover romance, eating well, work, and other topics, according to an e-mail obtained by Slate.

Dunham’s show “Girls,” of which she is the creator, producer, writer and star, was recently nominated for several Emmy awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (for Dunham), and Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series (also for Dunham, for the pilot episode of the show). Dunham was previously known for the 2010 film “Tiny Furniture,” in which she directed, wrote and starred.
