A bright, bursting to life party. A publisher who sees potential in your writing. Despite your promise to only write with your best friend, your partner pushes you to go for it so you do. You aim high and dream of the life of a writing success, making millions and getting married.
Flash forward to a year later and it’s all gone. Your partner has left you, your best friend is gone and you have barely any cash to scrape together rent. You’re living on the streets, eating scraps out of dumpsters in a place called Dubstown, when, as a final insult, you receive a wedding invitation. Your former lover is getting married. You have thirty days to make the costly journey across cities to possibly make one last shot at redemption, or to finally have closure.
And that’s how Always Sometimes Monsters starts. By kicking you straight into the bottom of the barrel, Always Sometimes Monsters strives to tell a story that can be full of redemption, hope and forgiveness. But you have to work for it. The thirty days come and go whether you work as hard as you can to redeem your actions and scrape cash together, or wallow in your own self-pity and despair. Your publisher has given you one last chance to maybe salvage your book deal, and it’s completely up to you to choose whether to make good on your contract or completely ignore it.
