NASHVILLE , Dec. 21 (UPI) -- The U.S. publisher of Lynne Spears' book said it is a memoir and a warning -- not a parenting guide as it has been called in the media.

The release of "Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World" was indefinitely postponed shortly before OK! magazine published an interview with Spears and her pregnant 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn.

"From the onset, the media have inaccurately reported that Lynne Spears' book is a parenting book. I'm sure this helps fuel tabloid readership, but it is simply not true," said Michael S. Hyatt, president and chief executive officer of Thomas Nelson, a company that describes itself as a "leading provider of Bibles, products and live events emphasizing Christian, inspirational and family value themes."

"Lynne's memoir will provide a window into the real-life world of fame and worldly success, including the toll it extracts from some who aspire to it. It will provide a much-needed corrective to a world obsessed with the wrong priorities. We believe in redemption. Therefore, we are standing with Lynne and her family during this difficult time. Though the book has been delayed, we believe God is at work. The story is still being written."
