There's one up over at Love Reading, who name it the March 2009 Debut of the Month.

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

A British book site called Lovereading offers downloads of first chapters, and Serial Killer is currently #4 on their most-downloaded list: http://www.lovereading.co.uk/

Dont lie to me. Jealousy will get you nowhere.

But really though, I'm glad the reviews are good so far. I can't see people who are into horror disliking it at all. I'm excited to see what the U.S. reviewers make of it when it comes here.

The great and mighty Brandon Sanderson has posted a review of my book on Amazon, which I just stumbled across, and I was kind of floored by how great it was. I owe this man some Mac and Cheese.

I think that review is bacon worthy, maybe even mac and cheeze with bacon bits worthy.

Just finished your book.  Enthralled me this morning. The most unique book I've read in a long time. I don't wanna admit how much I related to John, but oh well, what can you do.  I'd recommend the book to strangers but not friends, but seriously I enjoyed it.  It reminded me how I used to feel as a kid watching the X-Files.  As someone who's insane, here's hoping to John getting a friend and the girl someday.

I wrote a review of I Am Not A Serial Killer on my website http://www.andrewjackwriting.com/reviews/i-am-not-a-serial-killer/

I burned through this in less than a day, loving every minute of it. Can't wait for the next John Wayne Cleaver book.

Thanks for writing such a great book Dan (and all the free advice on Writing Excuses...)

Andrew
