About Scary Hippopotamus Books
Scary Hippopotamus Books is a self-publishing venture, operated and wholly owned by Curtis Edmonds. Our first book, RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY, was a #1 bestseller on the Amazon free list in 2013. WREATHED, a humorous contemporary romance, was published in 2014. LIES I HAVE TOLD, a short story collection, will be published in 2015. Both RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY and WREATHED have earned the B.R.A.G. Medallion.
The “Scary Hippopotamus” name comes from a recurring dream that my daughter had once about a scary hippopotamus. Not one to waste material, I fictionalized the experience in a short story, “Big Game Hunter,” that appears in LIES I HAVE TOLD. There was also a Frasier episode where the scary hippopotamus (a corruption of “square of the hypotenuse” from a Gilbert & Sullivan song) played a part.
