Jon Gosselin Writing a Parenting Book?

Look out, Kate Gosselin; your ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, is poised to give you some competition in the nation’s bookstores.

According to PopEater, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad is planning to follow in authoress Kate’s footsteps and publish a book. The best part? The as-yet-untitled tome will focus on Papa Goss’ fathering style.

A friend of Gosselin’s spills,

“Jon is still deciding what exactly the book will be about, but knows he wants to focus on his parenting skills. There is no deal yet or timeline, but the [interest] in Jon from publishers is huge right now, so he’s going to strike while the iron is hot.”

Gosselin will be co-authoring the book with leadership coach Dr. Sylvia Lafair, who helped the reality TV dad through his rocky divorce last year.

Sadly, a source notes, the book won’t be delving into Gosselin’s party-animal phase following his split with the mother of his eight children:

“Expect the book to include Jon’s journey from high school to father of sextuplets by age 27. What the book won’t be focusing on is how quickly he moved on, after Kate, with two much younger girlfriends, his partying nights in Las Vegas or his new huge tattoo that covers his entire back.”

Hopefully he’s saving all that for the follow-up.
