WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Katherine Harris has a lot on her plate these days. She's finishing her term as Florida secretary of state, she's running for Congress and, CNN has learned, she's busy working on a book about the 2000 presidential election recount, which made her an international celebrity.

Her book is titled, "Center of the Storm: Practicing Principled Leadership in a Time of Crisis." Sources say it will feature previously unknown anecdotes from the recount and will focus on the leadership principles Harris drew upon during the process.

The book is being published by Thomas Nelson Inc., which publishes Christian and educational books. It's due out late this summer, and aides say Harris is planning a promotional tour that will lead right up to the congressional elections in November.
