Congrats on the release of your latest novel, A BURDIZZO FOR A PRINCE. What was the inspiration for this one?
Thanks, man. The inspiration actually had a lot to do with stupid BuzzFeed headlines. Back when I ran a writer blog (my third attempt), I posted this thing about how dumb BuzzFeed was and how dumb their dumb headlines were and then I was like, “somebody should write a book about some dumb BuzzFeed employee who blogs about his life using dumb BuzzFeed headlines as chapter titles.” Initially, I only made it as far as the headlines. That first attempt can be found here.
