In the gone month, things have really kicked up in high gear (is that right? Is that how you say that? Sorry idk car terminologies) with MONSTERS BORN AND MADE. So, breaking tradition, I’m gonna have to bullet point this newsletter. Ramblings next time, in case anyone’s dying to hear what’s been going on in my mind*
- FIRST, the advanced reader’s copies are now starting to make their way into the world. E-ARCs are available on Netgalley and Edelweiss.
- MONSTERS also became the top most requested book in the Teens & YA category, Scifi & Fantasy category, and made the front page of all the books requested on Netgalley. Seriously, what the fuck is life??? Thank you for your enthusiasm for this book omg???
- For those of you who don’t know, advanced copies are, well, for advanced reviews. The two websites mentioned above are where booksellers, librarians, educators, readers etc can request for the book and the Powers That Be accept or reject, depending on their mood**
- The physical copies will also be going out very, very soon. Next month, I think. I’ve seen some of the Stuff that’s going out with those–and I’m SO envious. I can’t wait for the ARCs to reach readers!!
- I also have, uhm, some really great news coming very soon!!! Like, pretty sure later this month! Consider yourself in the know :wink wink:
- Also a second secret news that probably won’t be out for a while but OH MY GOD
- I’m really wondering if I’m even allowed to say half this stuff now that I’m writing it down
- In any case, MONSTERS BORN AND MADE is so close to crossing 5000 adds on Goodreads, and when it does I’m gonna do a giveaway of a pre-order of the book + another ‘22 debut!! So, please tell your friends and have ‘em add it! Thank you :)
- Speaking of giveaways, the winner of the one I held in January was Gauri S, and thank you to everyone for entering. I realized way later I should’ve mentioned the date it ends, which was the end of the month. You always learn something new huh
