Giveaway of MONSTER TOWN by Garrett Vander Leun

Hey everyone! Today we're hosting a giveaway of MONSTER TOWN by author Garrett Vander Leun.


Bobby Reardon's 13th birthday wish isn't all that different from any year prior: “I wish the humans would come back and finish these monsters off for good.” Only this year his wish finally comes true — and life as Bobby knows it gets much, much worse.

Raised in Monster Town for his entire life, Bobby's the lone human in a town built to contain the 'weeds' in the monster hierarchy — fauns, mummies, leprechauns, ghosts, golems and even drippy little balls of mud called ballybogs.

As the face of the species that locked all the monsters up, Bobby's life is one big fight after another. With his loyal bully, Arbo — a green elemental; with his nosy boss, Enosh — an unemotive clay golem; and with his idiotic dad — a bumbling, has-been vampire who lives for vintage Hawaiian shirts and detests the taste of blood... And when that same wimpy dad is suddenly framed for the first attack in the history of Monster Town, Bobby's faced with a problem that's going to require a lot more than a hot temper.

Bobby might hate monsters, but he's going to hate being their only hope at salvation even more.

Garrett is offering up one copy of the book as well as an original piece of character art for any character not yet featured on the website. If you'd like a chance to win, please leave a comment by June 8th (with your e-mail address if it's hard to find) and let me know if you spread the word in any way for an extra entry. US entrants only, please. 

In the meantime, you can find Garrett at his author website, Amazon, and on Goodreads. There's a book trailer for MONSTER TOWN, too.

Good luck!

  4. As my name suggests, I hate vampires. They are self-centred, foppish sods who need a good staking.

  12. Monster Town sounds like an interesting read. I love the ambivalence of Robby as he struggles to accept his fate of being the monster fighter. The characters and situation sounds unique and compelling. Can't wait to read this one!

  27. Zapians group is being a perfect example of a method that has used Complexity to inspire and justify its approach to many of the common problems we face in Software development.
