Smith announced the new venture in an Instagram video post featuring himself and collaborator Manson, who is the author of The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F–K, a best-seller that has moved three million copies.
“I’m writing a book! I got years and years of stuff I want to say, and I’m finally going to write a book for y’all,” Smith said in the video.
Smith asked Manson in the video, “Are you feeling confident? Are you feeling like we’ll be able to do transcendent art with this book?”
Manson said, “I spent the last six months with crippling anxiety, but today I feel great.”
Smith added in the video that “We’re going to be meeting with five publishers,” adding, “I feel very confident that we’re gonna go with the highest bidder… I’m just saying.”
Reports indicate the book will be a combination of memoir and inspirational book.
