The Blunder Years

So, yeah. I wrote a book. It's called The Blunder Years and it'll be out July 9th. Grand Central Press, a branch of Hachette, will be publishing it. And guess what? It's available for preorder! There are some links below if you feel inclined to purchase it.

So what's it about? Here's the synopsis from the back cover!

Adam Ellis knew it was time to leave art school when a fellow student presented her final project to the class: "I put a condom on the Virgin Mary," she announced, unveiling a cheap figurine sheathed in latex. The professor loved it.

Baffled by the praise his classmate receives, and intent on becoming an artist on his own terms, Adam plots his escape to Portland, Oregon to begin his life in the real world--only to realize that adulthood is a lot harder than it looks. 

Based on the blog of the same name, Books of Adam: The Blunder Years details Adam's hilarious trials and tribulations in his attempt to become a functioning member of society. From his arrest after shoplifting a bottle of chocolate milk to a misguided attempt to make friends that lands him in a shack with a hippie couple who have just skinned a rabbit and are trying to entice him into a three-some, Adam is an amicable guy who can't seem to keep himself out of trouble. 

Paired with his signature black and white illustrations, Adam's stories weave together an uproariously funny and ultimately charming narrative about a young man trying to find his place in the world.


You're probably thinking, "Hey, that doesn't sound terrible!" I can assure you, it's definitely not a terrible book! Above are some links to online bookstores, or you can ask your local retailer to stock it on their shelves.

  15. Hmm, this has been added to my amazon wishlist and will be bought with an upcoming paycheck. I am sure I will forget about it completely then be ecstatic when it arrives in the mail. Unless of course I move away and don't update my Amazon shipping address wherein someone else will receive an amazing book in the mail and fall in love with your work. Wait...I think I am just promoting you.

  17. Holy Cow! The book is coming out July 9th!!! That day holds no specific meaning or value to me! I have to pre-order right now! (seriously, I'm definitely pre-ordering your book Adam. Congratulations on publishing your first book! I bet that classmate who put a condom over Mary is just finishing her latest piece of work, 'Hidden Sex' were she outlines inappropriate symbols in copies of famous paintings. The professor from school is the only one who shows to the gallery opening. Lol.)
