Sociopaths in Love

Coming October 2013


Boy meets girl. They fall in love. They move in together and start a new life. They're beautiful and they have new things, expensive things, the best of everything, whatever they want. But that's only the surface. Beneath the surface is something much different. Something much darker. Theirs is a love like no other and only one of them will survive it.

*The cover image is by the amazing Dorothy Bhawl.

I Will Sign Books and Ship Them to You

I don't really do a lot of signings at bookstores. Most of them don't carry my books so it would be awkward. I've thought about just bringing a table and signing books in front of one of the remaining Barnes and Nobles but I'd probably get arrested or asked to leave or something. It's also a pretty busy year for me, so I'm not really planning on making it to many conventions. I get asked a couple times a year about signing books so I thought I would do this. Take note, this is also your chance to pre-order a signed copy of Sociopaths in Love. Now take a deep breath, it's not as overwhelming as it seems at first:

1. If you PayPal ten dollars per book (add 5 if you live outside the US) to andersenprunty at hotmail dot com and put which book you would like in the notes (or comments or whatever) section I will send you     that book/those books toward the beginning of June (unless Sociopaths in Love is the only thing you're ordering). They will be signed. Please specify if you would like them personalized.

2. If you PayPal 150 (add ten if you live outside the US) dollars to andersenprunty at hotmail dot com, I will send you all 17 books I have in print and Sociopaths in Love when it comes out. I will send the 17 books to you in June and Sociopaths to you in October or before.

PLEASE NOTE: I WILL ONLY BE TAKING ORDERS UNTIL MAY 31ST.

Feel free to email me or message me on Facebook if you have any questions.

Here's a list of the available books in mindbending reverse chronological order:

Sociopaths in Love (tentatively available October 2013)

The Warm Glow of Happy Homes

Satanic Summer

Bury the Children in the Yard

Fill the Grand Canyon and Live Forever

Pray You Die Alone

Sunruined

The Driver's Guide to Hitting Pedestrians

Hi I'm a Social Disease

Fuckness

Slag Attack

My Fake War

The Sorrow King

Morning is Dead

The Beard

As always, thanks for your continued support!
