What's this book all about? Glad you asked!
This is a story about a monkey. A talking, wish granting, chain smoking monkey. He's been doing this for a long time, but doesn't quite remember where he came from, why he's a wish granting monkey, or even why is name is Monkey. There are lots of wish granting rules he has to follow. This can be a challenge sometimes, but he doesn't let it bother him as he goes about his life at a zoo near Poughkeepsie, New York. One day, though, his home and master are attacked and life is never the same again. He has to find a new master and sets off on an insane adventure of murder, love, revenge and publishing.
This one has been a long time coming, and is my first prose novel in over a decade. It is my first novel in my new creative life, and the first I am publishing under a new commitment to publish one new prose novel each year. I started writing this about mid-July 2020 and finished the first draft on January 5, 2021. So from inception to publication, it took around nine months. I've kept it really close to the chest, but now it's out there for everybody else to read and enjoy.
So pick it up, read it, leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads and tell all your friends! As for me, I'm onto whatever my 2021 novel is going to be. I have a few ideas, haven't settled on one yet, but I hope to start writing in earnest soon.
