We haven’t heard that much about Billy McFarland after all the hype around the Fyre Festival documentary.
But New York Magazine has shared the news that McFarland is self-publishing a memoir from prison, where he is currently serving 6 years for fraud.
Promythus: God of Fyre (creative spelling or not?) will reportedly cover McFarland’s life from 2011 up to when he was visited by the FBI in the days following the festival issues.
The memoir will tell the “raw” story apparently.
McFarland feels that things were not accurately represented in either Netflix or Hulu’s documentaries, even though he hasn’t seen them.
McFarland Handwrites Memoir In Prison
A freelance editor, Josh Raab, who was contacted by McFarland’s girlfriend, Anastasia Eremenko, about editing the book reportedly spilled the beans
Apparently, McFarland handwrites the pages, which will be about 800 in total once completed and mails them to Eremenko for her to type.
Raab eventually turned down the project, but before declining, he was connected with Brandon Rubinshtein, a publicist who also represents Dennis Rodman, we hear.
Now, Billy McFarland is just about ready to self-publish Promythus: God of Fyrevia Amazon.
Raab apparently said that the planned release date was the end of April, but at time of writing this article, the book is still unreleased.
Let’s wait and see.
