Vermillion is publishing two psychology titles from Thomas Erikson.
Publishing director Susanna Abbott acquired UK & Commonwealth rights from Chris Scheina at St Martin’s Press. The first book in the deal, Surrounded by Psychopaths, will publish in September 2020.
Surrounded by Psychopaths aims to show how personal “weaknesses and behavioural traits can be exploited by other people and how you can stop them in their tracks” according to its synopsis.
Abbott said: “It has been a joy to publish Thomas Erikson and replicate this incredible Swedish phenomenon in the UK and beyond. We are delighted to be working with him on two further books. Surrounded by Idiots looks set to sell more copies in its second year than its first, which is a great signpost that the book is already becoming a self-help classic that will sell on for years and years.”
Vermilion will bring Erikson to the UK in September 2020 to promote the book.
