BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Aug. 11, 2016 – Author Solutions, LLC, the world leader in supported self-publishing services, has announced today that AuthorHouse title Tall Money, (ISBN: 978-1-47726-152-1) the autobiography of Chicago crime kingpin John Cappas, has been signed to a shopping agreement with longtime studio executive turned producer John Sacchi and his colleague, Matt Groesch. Sacchi and Groesch will produce Cappas’ life story under Sacchi’s 5 More Minutes Productions company banner.
Tall Money details the incredible true story of John Cappas, who, in the 1980s, went from promising Marist High School wrestler to cocaine kingpin of the Chicago suburbs. At the height of his empire, Cappas was bringing in over five figures a week off his prep school customers. At 23 years old, Cappas surrendered to authorities and was sentenced to 45 years. He was released from prison on appeal after a sentence reduction in 2004.
Author Solutions’ Hollywood-based director of media services, Caroline Weiss, identified the title in AuthorHouse’s library and tipped off Groesch, a Chicago native. “At first glance Tall Money is a wild story of teen rebellion, money and corruption that’s hard to believe is true; however, after reading more, you quickly see the many layers within this rare coming-of-age story of family and loyalty that also blurs the lines between who the real criminals are.”
