Pre-Order a Novel, Get a Valentine’s Day Sext from the Author

Sexting, the fine art of sending dirty messages to your lover, has landed a few celebrities in hot water. But one novelist will send all his faithful readers a sext on Valentine’s Day.

Electric Literature will publish an eBook edition of Sam Pink’s Rontel on February 14th, the literary journal’s first novel. If you pre-order the $4.99 eBook, Pink will send you a sext message on his release day. You can read an excerpt from the novel at Recommended Reading:

we’re teaming up with Lazy Fascist Press to release a special digital edition of RontelRontel‘s narrator is an unnamed man for whom life is a “pile of things” that refuses to work together; a man whose underlying problem is that adulthood arrived without ceremony or certification. The novel is unsettling (often hysterically so), and it would be easy to call it “gritty” or “raw,” but really it’s just honest. In Rontel, we begin to recognize ourselves in a man who cannot relate to others, we realize that we all deserve to be exiled for the thoughts we’ve thought, the things we’ve nearly done.
