My updates for MONSTERS are definitely going to be sparse for now because I’m not allowed to share most of it, rip.
What I will confirm is that as of now, it is a standalone. From the beginning (January 2018, holy shit) this story was strange; world-heavy, but focused entirely on this one girl. What does that mean? It means that this is a world that can have countless stories, it’s a lived-in well-worn world. As I mentioned above, it was the world of Ophir that came to me first. But the soul of this particular story is in this girl.
This is a story of struggling with the status quo, being afraid of change, and finally breaking chains. It’s not clean, in fact it’s ugly, and the heart of my main character is a confused place. But I really hope you like what I tried to do in this narrative.
Here’s the PM deal report in case you haven’t seen it.
