MONKEY SEE... SEA MONKEY is a silly story I wrote that tells the story of an alien invasion from a ten year old's point of view. But instead of invaders from Mars... the invasion comes from Sea Monkeys... those loveable creatures that looked so much better in the comic books than in real life.

But what if they grew big? And what if the only way to fight them was by using things found in the ads of comic books?

That is where the fun begins!!!

Taking place in 1978, Sea Monkeys have risen up in the small town of Broad Brook, CT and look to enslave the world, one little town at a time. With the 24 hour news cycle decades away, the story is told in 70's time; slow, innocent and without the frantic pace we live in today.

When you are reading this gem you'll be able to hear the sounds of the Bee Gees, Wings and KISS!

This project is so much different than my last book, THE UNOFFICIAL DOCTOR WHO COMPANION. As you will see many of the incentives for this book features books, prints and cards celebrating THAT book.

MONKEY SEE, SEA MONKEY features some beautiful and eye catching art by some of my dearest friends who happen to be incredibly talented. Michael Kelleher, Keith Gleason, Amy Kukta and Karen Gosselin have provided some incredible visuals that will blow you away!

So sit back, relax and become a part of the fun, innocence and mayhem of the late 1970's!

Risks and challenges

I'm making this project risk free for anyone involved!

1. I have already written and published three books, so I know what it takes to finish a project

2. I have made all the incentives, fun and easy to get out on time, some ready to go right now!

3. I wasn't going to a Kickstarter until I was at least 50% done with this book. Currently i'm about 70% complete.
