Blog Tour Kickoff: Interview and Giveaway: THE NIGHT WEAVER by Monique Snyman

by Monique Snyman
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Vesuvian Books
Release date: October 15th


Shadow Grove isn't a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don't grieve, missing posters don't line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn't exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.

Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It's up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.


Praise for The Night Weaver

“Stephen King’s It meets Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight in Snyman’s frightening story of horror and fantasy woven together to create a delectable tale of the macabre … romance and action. Snyman’s storytelling will have people lining up for the next book.” ~ School Library Journal



Do you read reviews of your books? What do you do when you read a not-so-nice one?
I read reviews left for me by readers, and I appreciate everyone who leaves feedback. Luckily, I have “crocodile skin,” so I usually accept negative feedback on my books without it really getting to me. 

What's your favorite thing to do when you're not writing?
I like being in the kitchen, experimenting like some alchemist with spices and recipes. When I’m not doing that, I’m knitting or crocheting. I can’t sit still without doing something.

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Kind. Generous. Scary. 😊

What do you normally like to read when not writing?
I read everything I can get my hands on, but I mostly gravitate toward speculative fiction—horror, science fiction, fantasy. 

If you could meet anyone and spend an hour with them alive or dead who and why?
Marilyn Monroe. Not to discuss her acting career, but rather to talk about our shared love of reading.

Who would you cast for a movie/TV series as your main characters if given the chance?
Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale) or Maddison Brown (Dynasty) would both make an excellent Rachel Cleary. 

What are you working on now? 
The third book in the Harrowsgate series.

Tell us what comes to mind when you think about the release of The Night Weaver.
Weirdly, I’m dealing with a mixture of relief and excitement. I’m extremely fortunate to have an excellent, capable team behind me, so I’m not as worried as I’ve been during book releases in the past.

About the Author

Monique Snyman
Monique Snyman’s mind is a confusing bedlam of glitter and death, where candy-coated gore is found in abundance and homicidal unicorns thrive. Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words—be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words.

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award® nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the first installment in a dark fantasy series for young adults.
