*Mackenzi makes no sense*
Except I have some news! It is small news, but it is exciting news, so that makes it feel big.
As you well know, because I went on about it at length, advanced copies of THIS MONSTROUS THING are out in the world. Which means people are reading my book! That remains a strange and extraordinary thing.
And an even better thing…some people who are reading it are liking it! Including some very cool authors that I admire very much.
And even better than that? Some of those very cool authors have agreed to say nice things about it publicly, which we can then print on the book to trick people who like their books into read mine! Huzzah!
So THIS MONSTROUS THING officially has some very cool blurbs from extraordinarily cool authors! My head is still exploding a little. So if I have not convinced you to read my book, perhaps one of them can…
“A compelling and brave retelling of the original science fiction novel. A secret history, a love story, something both old and new.”
-Scott Westerfeld, author of Zeroes, Uglies, and Leviathan
“Mackenzi Lee’s This Monstrous Thing is simply beautiful. It pulses with electricity, mystery, and heart and brings to life one of my all-time favorite tales with an unexpected twist.”
-Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author of Dorothy Must Die and The Wicked Will Rise
“A richly imagined tale of two brothers and a dark science that twists everything I thought I knew about FRANKENSTEIN. A monstrously good read!”
-Megan Shepherd, author of The Madman’s Daughter series
So if I hadn’t already convinced you to buy yourself a copy of THIS MONSTROUS THING, perhaps Scott, Danielle, and Megan have. (Shameless plug–you can preorder it from Porter Square Books! And I will sign it! And probably draw you a picture or write you a secret coded note in it!)
