A library of cannabis books is essential if you really want to learn about how the industry works, and now a new book deal will give cannabis insiders the juicy details they really want to know. Author Jackson D. Tilley recently announced that his new nonfiction book, entitled Billion Dollar Dimebag: An Insider’s Account of America’s Legalish Cannabis Industry, will officially be releasing on Sept. 17. The book is currently available for preorder now.
For those who aren’t in-the-know, Tilley isn’t just an author. He’s also the vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Communications at Organa Brands, which is one of the largest cannabis distribution companies in the country. Tilley’s book will share his personal experiences working in the industry as a gay man under 30 years old. It also gives personal insight into his journey into sobriety while working in one of the nation’s most disruptive industries. Readers can look forward to unique first-hand perspectives on the past, present and future of the industry.
“I’m over the moon to be working with these two great publishers. I was sold on working with Jacob Hoye at Post Hill Press thanks to his decorated career as an editor; that experience paired with distribution by Simon & Schuster made the deal a no-brainer,” said Tilley in a press statement. “I’ve long dreamt of sharing the untold story of the business of cannabis. I’m also thrilled to be narrating the book myself, so that listeners have an opportunity to hear first-hand the human aspects of the characters that make up this new American industry.”
Tilley signed a deal with Creative Artists Agency, and the publisher for his book will be Post Hill Press. He also made a deal with Audible where he will also be narrating the audio version of his book. Whether you secure your copy in print or opt to listen to Billion Dollar Dimebag on your commute home, readers will enjoy Tilley’s fascinating perspective into the cannabis industry.
