Sunny, 54, recently shared news about her upcoming novel Summer on Sag Harbor on Instagram.

Summer on Sag Harbor is the second installment in the Oak Bluffs series from the morning show host.

In the social media video, The View co-host held a copy of her book Summer on Sag Harbor – with many more copies stacked behind her.

She stressed that fans can pre-order her book before the official release date.

Deborah commented on Sunny’s post: “Really releasing same day!! Whoo hoo!!”

Her book Lessons Learned and Cherished: The Teacher Who Changed My Life is also in preparation.

Last month, Deborah posted a video on her Instagram of herself unwrapping the book.

“Oh my God. That’s exciting,” she squeaked, taking one out of the box.

“After a year of working and waiting and dreaming, my book is here!”

She added: “I can’t wait for you to get this. I can’t wait to get your hands on it.”

Deborah then turned the book over to look at the cover, smiled and held it close as the video ended.

The GMA correspondent captioned the post: “Wednesday Wow! I am very pleased to announce that my new book, Lessons Learned and Cherished; The Teacher Who Changed My Life will hit bookshelves in just a few weeks.”

“I look forward to sharing stories from incredible people about the inspiring and uplifting power of teachers. Here you will find yourself again.”

Deborah continued, “The stories will make you smile, laugh or cry as we celebrate the treasure of teaching. Pre-order yours wherever you buy books or get them on May 2nd.”
