Beware of Low-Flying Butt Monkeys (#IWSG May 2022)

I have a new book out this week so I'll keep this brief(er than usual?). 

First off, THANK YOU to everyone who's helping spread the word with posts on their blogs this week about Revenge of the Space-Surfing Butt Monkeys. Your support is tremendously appreciated.

Secondly: BUY MY BOOK. Seriously, it's out now. It's part 2 in the Gale Harbour series, so buy book 1 while you're at it.

Title of Publication: Revenge of the Space-Surfing Butt Monkeys (Gale Harbour Book 2)

Date of Publication: May 3, 2022
Available: Kindle, Paperback
No. of Pages: 321
Novel Summary/Blurb:

Newfoundland, Canada, 1993.

It's been a year since a handful of kids defeated the Psycho Hose Beast in the sleepy town of Gale Harbour, Newfoundland. Our heroes have entered into the era of rollerblades, Super Nintendo and oversized plaid shirts… unless you’re a goth, then it’s the era of Maybelline eyeliner, boots with too many buckles, and infected safety-pin piercings.

Thirteen-year-old Niall O'Neil is navigating a blossoming relationship with his crush, Harper Jeddore. Unfortunately, the power that allowed them to defeat the monster from the deep is still within them, and they are no closer to understanding or controlling it. When just touching your girlfriend can kill innocent bystanders, it complicates the already precarious practice of teenage dating.

But lurking in the backdrop of teenage romance, a sinister power is growing in Gale Harbour, and dangerous people are turning up in the small town with possibly deadly intentions.

Will the kids defeat this new threat? What did the US Air Force leave in the abandoned Hansen Air Force base? What is a space-surfing butt monkey? And most importantly—will anyone get to touch a boob?

" entertaining story peppered with dashes of nineties nostalgia, snappy one liners and perfectly captured teenage angst..."

-Damien Larkin, author of "Big Red"

"Gallant-King does a good job capturing the voices of the teens as they deal with the usual pressures of growing up, as well as the supernatural threats. [...] The kids dialogue is authentic, the side characters are great."
- Patrick LeClerc, author of "Out of Nowhere"

"...this hilarious tale of adventure, horror, aliens, and friendship was a delight from start to finish. Gallant-King handles the teen protagonists with such insight and tenderness."

- Sadira Stone, author of "Through the Red Door"

"The thing that stood out for me in this book and the previous one, is that even though it is very fantasy and very sci-if, it still feels very real and conceivable."

-Books By Your Bedside Reviews

"This book was a blast and a worthy sequel to Psycho Hose Beast. Another chance for CDGK to show off his ability to get inside the heads and hearts of proper weirdos and create some massively entertaining and unique POVs. The story was page-turning fun as usual."

-Samuel Gately, author of "The Fire Eye Refugee"

So how am I feeling? Tired, excited, hoping desperately that this doesn't flop. I have some interesting publications stories but honestly I don't have any juice left so I'll save them for next month. 

So for now, I'm just going to say Happy IWSG Day, and how was everyone else's month?

Hugs & Kisses,
