Thank you so much for reading Monstrous – so glad you enjoyed it! I’m always working on a number of projects (right now, all middle grade and young adult fantasy), but the next book to be published is still up in the air. When I have news, I’ll announce it on Twitter and my website, and of course Goodreads!

In the meantime, if you’re looking for more to read, there’s a 100+ page prequel novella called Precious printed as bonus content in Ravenous. So after Monstrous, you still have two more stories to go in the series! :)(less)

MarcyKate answered Mariah's question: MarcyKate Connolly
Aww, thank you!! I’m so happy to hear that! I’m very lucky I’ve had the chance to write two duologies set in the Shadow Weaver world, but I’m afraid that’s all I have planned. Hopefully you’ll enjoy future novels set in new worlds too!

I actually got the idea very late at night during a time I was feeling like I’d never get a good idea again. Two images fell into my brain in quick succession: the first was of a creepy baby just being born, but instead of reaching for her mother as See Full Answer

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis
