BRIMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver's book based on his Facebook rants, "No Mopes Allowed," is selling well, he reported on the department's website.
"For those who have asked," Oliver writes, "the book is doing well. We we are approaching 5,000 sold. We are far from best seller; however considering I was never going to write a book, we are 5,000 ahead!"
In July, Oliver signed a deal with Gray and Company Publishers for the book "No Mopes Allowed". The 250-page paperback book costs $14.95 presale and is available online. It ships starting Sept. 23 and all preordered copies will be signed by the chief himself. Oliver said that "Mrs. Chief is buying Sharpies."
"'No Mopes Allowed' is a ‘greatest hits' collection of rants and babbles," Oliver said about the book. "This book includes a lot of writing from the early days of the page—things you have missed… And I present my top 40 favorite quotes of the day."
All proceeds from the book will go to the Chief Oliver Foundation, which is a not-for-profit group that helps juvenile victims of sexual assault and funds the department's charitable programs.
