Surprise! I have a new book out.

It’s Inconvenient Murder which is conveniently fun!

InconvenientMurder1-683x1024

Auburn and I interviewed each other about the book.  Though my typos are edited out, it’s pretty pure, so it’ll give you an idea of the type of crazy you’re dealing with.

Auburn:

We should interview each other for a blog post. I’ll just start asking questions. And you ask me questions. We’ll be assholes and then only keep what we like. Only answer what you want. I’m operating on 3 hours of sleep, so I’ll probably sound drunk.

Amanda:

I’m okay with you being drunk

Auburn:

I promise. I’m not. Only answer what you want.

Auburn:

Ready? Get Set. Go! What is your favorite element to this witch mystery?

Amanda:

My favorite part is the boob/southern lady bits. I love that they’re terrible at magic to every extent and don’t even care.

Auburn:

What makes Auburn awesome?

Amanda:

Auburn is awesome because she’s awesome. Duh. She’s the same brand of crazy as me and rides the same crazy train, so we get each other in a way that is probably irritating to the rest of the universe. Also despite being high strung she’s incredible laid back.

Auburn:

I love that you think I’m high strung and laid back at the same time. Maybe you are drinking this morning?

Amanda:

You’re just laid back about the right stuff.

Auburn:

What irritating things do you have to overcome in order to be able to work with her?

Amanda:

Auburn disappears like a hobag with family shit.  I do the same, but it’s irritating when she does it to me. Also, she’s stupid spoiled. Like the spoiledest spoiled person you ever met.

Auburn:

Are your main characters modeled after you and Auburn?

Amanda:

Ingrid is me if I were entirely different than I am.

Amanda:

Answer the same question for me.

Auburn:

What am I answering?

Amanda:

The same damn questions, dumbass.

Auburn:

Why Auburn is awesome?

Amanda:

Yes that. You can throw in why I’m awesome too.

Auburn:

Oh, right. It’s not all about me. Damn.

Amanda:

It’s okay. It can be about you this time. But it’s all me next time, Jezebel.

Auburn:

Hahaha. Dude. This whole rambly mess is going live. Just so you know. It’s gonna be rad.

Amanda:

Shut your face, bitchacha! You at least have to remove my typos.

Auburn:

Right. There’s that. I’ll let you edit before we post it.

Auburn:

You are awesome because in spite of your life being so completely full of out of control nonsense, you dream big impossible dreams and you make me feel like together we can accomplish anything.

It’s possible I say things like that to my husband. All deep and sentimental.

But, you know, I usually have different intentions when I’m talking to him like that.

Amanda:

That must be why you’re so damn spoiled.

Auburn:

What do you love most about Ingrid?

Amanda:

Okay.  My favorite thing about Ingrid is that she’s as lazy as I want to be.  But instead, I have small children with legitimate needs.

Auburn:

Hahahahaha! Who you love desperately!

Amanda:

So you are Emily?

Auburn:

I definitely relate to Emily because she’s fun and damaged. She’s got a chill side and then baggage that she likes to bury as much as possible.

Auburn:

Have you ever set someone on fire in real life?

Amanda:

I have not set anyone on fire in real life.  But I have slapped my aunt (when I was a child) and I threw a knife at my brother’s face.  Thankfully, it was very dull.

Auburn:

I am virtuous, and therefore do not condone violence. Bahahaha.

Amanda:

What’s your favorite thing about Ingrid?

Auburn:

I think my favorite think about Ingrid is her tendency for disposable automobiles. I totally relate to that.

Amanda:

If you were going to murder someone what’s your preferred method?

Auburn:

If I was murdering someone, I presume that it’s because they totally deserve it. In which case, the cause of death should be slow and incredibly painful. Also, I’d like to not get messy, so no blood. How about you?

Amanda:

If I were murdering someone it would be in the heat of fury and also because they’d done something to my kids. In which case it would be with the closest deadly instrument—candlestick if necessary.

Auburn:

I’m loving the contrast of my premeditation and your crime of passion. Hey, we should write a murder mystery!

Auburn:

What’s your favorite violent song? Mine is currently Put the Gun Down by ZZ Ward. But I also love Burn it the Ground by Nickelback. They are both very upbeat, but Ward’s song is a sort of desperate plea while Nickelback is all about an anthem call to rebel. Which I’m all about.

Amanda:

 As for violent songs, I totally scrolled through my music library and I can tell you this:

1) I like songs that tell stories. 2) none of which are particularly violent, but I do have a weird affection fro Razor by Foo Fights which is like a love song to suicide. I really enjoy Familiar Taste of Poison by Halestorm which is about being murdered and I really enjoy I need a Hero sung by the Fairy Godmother in Shrek. Because…Because. Shut it.

You can buy the first of the Inept Witches here.

Audiobook and paperback coming soon.

Ps.  As for my Popsugar Book Challenge of reading for 2015, I’ve temporarily chucked it to the side to finish the Larry Correira books. ❤  If you want to read about death and mayhem, check ’em out.
