We’re UP!

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Okay, this is my very first blog post ever and I’m happy to use it to announce that as of a moment ago, and even though it is not yet officially released, THE LIZARD KING is selling second to the number one selling book in’s reptiles category: Roger Conant’s A FIELD GUIDE TO REPTILES AND AMPHIBIANS OF EASTERN AND CENTRAL NORTH AMERICA.

For me, having my book next to Roger Conant’s, even in cyberspace, is a dream come true. Actually, that’s a lie. I never dreamed I’d write a book about reptiles or about reptile crime and so I can only say that having a book on the shelf beside the “little blue bible” is a fairy tale moment. I’ll get back to tweaking the website, something we’ll be doing over the next week or so, but those of you who as children picked up a Peterson’s Field Guide on any subject can well imagine what a thrill it is to have the years fold in half, putting me back in mind of that important little guide to wonder.
