To Whom it May Concern:
Tomorrow is one of the biggest days of my life. I am releasing my debut novel
and a new EP
to accompany it. I want you all to know that I spent over a year grinding my teeth to the gums, every single night, trying to write the most poignant, beautiful book
that I could.
It’s NOT an auto-biography, it’s NOT a collection of Bennett texts. Nothing like that. It’s a colorful, lyrical narrative about life, love, race, and heartbreak. It’s funny, sad, and (hopefully) pretty damn provocative. If you like the way I write my lyrics, you will LOVE the way I penned this novel. I truly believe that.
Anyways, my point in writing this is simple. My publisher is very happy with how the pre-sales have gone. Most books sell very poorly at first, especially in this climate. My agents, my publisher, my management, everyone. ALL of them equate it to one thing, and one thing only: my fans.
I know this may sound patronizing and corny, but I don’t give a fuck. I want to tell each and every one of you, from the bottom of my scarred, frost-bitten, Irish heart: THANK YOU.
I have the pleasure of having some of the most genuine, endearing fans in the world. You guys have carried me on your backs for a decade plus. I hope I create art for you that helps you make it through this fucked up, turbulent life.
I love you guys, and can’t wait to hear what you think of my book and EP.

p.s. By the way, my book has caused a firestorm in the TV and movie industry, and it looks like one of the dopest, most original TV networks is optioning it to turn into a TV show. This is all because of you guys.
