Lena Dunham in HBO's 'Girls' -- HBO

As if three Emmy nominations weren't proof enough that Lena Dunham is quickly becoming a hot Hollywood commodity, the "Girls" creator/star is now the subject of a publisher bidding war.

The actress is set to pen a book of essays and bidding for the book has reached $3.7 million, with five publishers vying for Lena's material, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The hefty payday nears the $5 million comedy superstar Tina Fey received for her 2011 best seller, "Bossypants."

Lena's proposed book (tentatively titled, "Not That Kind of Girl: Advice by Lena Dunham") will feature essays about various topics ranging from friendship, sex and dating, to eating disorders and her fascination with death, THR reported.
