Creative Trust, Inc agents Dan Raines and Meredith Smith negotiated the deal with Grand Central EIC of paperbacks Beth de Guzman.

Green had this statement in the release: “After reading my book, there will be no doubt that I am meant to be. You will enter into the supernatural, the surreal, and extraordinary. As CeeLo Green, a.k.a. ‘everybody’s brother,’ I will make you a believer. I talk about art imitating life; YOU discover CRAZY.”
