10 Things You Didn’t Know About Monsterland

By Michael Okon

  1. I came up with idea of Monsterland while watching an 80s & 90s movie marathon one weekend with my son.
  2. I called my brother immediately and told him I want to write a story about a theme park with zombies. He told me no, the theme park has to have werewolves, vampires AND zombies. I started beating out the story that night.
  3. It took me a little over three weeks to complete Monsterland.
  4. I self-published Monsterland in 2015 and it became a best-seller on Amazon.
  5. Within two years of self-publishing, I got a literary agent, an entertainment attorney, a film agent, a publicist, a two-book publishing deal, and film interest from a well-known producer.
  6. Monsterland went from being an indie book in 2015 to the number one pre-ordered book in Teen & Young Adult Zombie Fiction on Amazon in 2017.
  7. My brother designed the cover with an artist.
  8. There are two massive twists at the end of the book that most readers never see coming.
  9. Monsterland 2 is completed and comes out May 26, 2018.
  10. I have eight Monsterland books planned.
