Despite a small kink in the supply line, Bad Monkeys is at #3 this week on the Pacific Northwest Independent bestseller list, behind Khaled Hosseini and Terry Brooks (and wouldn’t those two make interesting coauthors?). On the Book Sense national list, I’ve slipped to #23.
Also, I got a great review in the Democrat-Gazette of Little Rock, Arkansas last Sunday. The online version of the paper is subscriber-only, but here’s a sample:
Beware that this is one of those books that you don’t want to be interrupted until you finish, particularly with pesky daily tasks like going to work or taking a shower. As another reviewer wrote, “Bad Monkeys is almost certain to develop a cult following, however, if only for its distorted view of the world, and anyone suffering from Matrix-withdrawal should get their hands on a copy today.” It captures you and reads like a fast-paced action movie. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is already a movie deal in the works. Yet more than just a rousing read, it engages your mind with age-old questions about the nature of good and evil.
Who knows, I may crack the southern market yet.
