Pre-order: BIG WEED
I ghosted a business memoir this year that is already up for pre-order on Amazon, BN, iBookstore, and Kobo. Among other things, it’s story of a Colorado businessman who dreams of building a state-of-the-art tourist destination in the foothills of the Rockies devoted to the glory of (legal) marijuana—and makes that dream come true. He shares the story of how he got into this burgeoning field, his company’s ups and downs, and insights that can be applied to almost any other business.
I’ve written about a half dozen books for business guys, in their voices, but Mr. Hageseth is the first to permit me to share a byline with him. You can see the gorgeous plans of his upcoming “weedery”—which I’d describe as being like a brewery, winery, meadery, or cidery, only with marijuana—at this website. The $25 million-dollar facility is currently under construction.
Palgrave/Macmillan pubs the book April 20, 2015, a date that has special significance for cannabis lovers. What’s my special contribution to this project? Sneaking into the text this H.P. Lovecraft reference.
Please note: If you would prefer to pre-order through an independent bookstore, please hold off buying. I should have info about signed indie pre-orders soon. In any case, keep a receipt of your purchase. There is likely to be some type of intoxicating giveaway looming in the future.
