This week the book South of Normal by Norm Schriever earned a place on the Amazon.com Best Seller list.
This designation is achieved when an author's work hits the top ten in its specific category on Amazon or Kindle for Amazon. South of Normal did just that, amazingly reaching #5 behind in the same travel/adventure category as John Krakauer's iconic Into Thin Air, entrenched at #1.
South of Normal is described as a "Gonzo blast of laughter and adventure about a year spent living in the tropical paradise of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. So far, it's gained all 5-star reviews on Amazon but is also embroiled in some controversy.
