Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas online fashion editor who lost her left hand and eye when she walked into the propeller of a small plane has a book deal to tell the story of her accident and recovery.

A public relations firm representing 23-year-old Lauren Scruggs announced Thursday that she has signed with Tyndale Momentum, an imprint of Christian-focused Tyndale House Publishers.

A. Larry Ross Communications said in a news release that Scruggs, founder and editor-in-chief of the online fashion magazine LOLO, will release the book "Still Lolo" in November 2012. The book will be co-authored by Marcus Brotherton and will include insights from her parents and twin sister.

Scruggs was injured after walking into the propeller of a small plane after taking a flight to view Christmas lights in December.
