Ricky Dillon has officially become the latest social media personality to release his own book. Dillon, known for his vlogs, musical career, and previous membership in YouTube supergroup Our2ndLife, has joined forces with Simon & Schuster’s Keywords Press imprint to publish Follow Me, a memoir that is now available from major retailers.

Follow Me is described as “a memoir of challenges,” in reference to the challenge videos Dillon often posts on his YouTube channel. As he shares new challenges with his readers, Dillon also uses Follow Me to show what the day-to-day life of a social media star looks like.

Dillon’s off-YouTube ventures have typically sold well (his debut EP RPD in particular was a big hit on iTunes), and Follow Me seems like it too will generate plenty of attention. On the day of its release, it began to make an impact on several of Amazon’s category-specific bestseller lists.

Dillon will support the release of Follow Me with a book tour that will hit six cities in one week. The tour will begin June 8 in Birmingham, Alabama, and will conclude June 15 in Los Angeles.
