Twitter Interview Transcript: Dim Sum, Dead Some EM Kaplan January 8, 2015 No Comment Twitter Interview: Dim Sum, Dead Some host: Sezoni Whitfield of #WritersKaboodle Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Hi EM! Welcome to the chat! Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Your book delivers to entertain from start to finish. Could you tell us a little about Dim Sum, Dead Some? EM Kaplan @meilaan First, thanks for hosting me! EM Kaplan @meilaan Dim Sum, Dead Some is the 2nd Josie Tucker mystery. In it, you’ll find Josie in San Francisco. EM Kaplan @meilaan Josie is up to her usual snarky fun, loving food despite her perpetually upset stomach. 🙂 Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield So why Dim Sum, Dead Some? http://JustTheEmWords.com EM Kaplan @meilaan The 1st book is called The Bride Wore Dead, so using “Dead” in the titles kind of became a thing to do. EM Kaplan @meilaan Dim sum is Chinese brunch, which I love. Dumplings on tiny plates…And it’s at the heart of this story. Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Tell us about some of those cringe-worthy situations Josie gets herself into. Sounds like a mystery of fun. EM Kaplan @meilaan She first goes to San Francisco to vet her BFF’s new boyfriend–have you ever done that for a friend? Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Yes, but I’ve never traveled to another city to do it. lol. EM Kaplan @meilaan I know! Josie’s the type of person who would. + she gets the bonus of the culinary delights of that city. EM Kaplan @meilaan The boyfriend happens to be Chinese. And when he takes them all to lunch with his parents… EM Kaplan @meilaan …he tells them Josie is his girlfriend because they can’t handle him seeing a non-Asian. Awkward. Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield That is awkward, and someone ends up dead? No spoiler alert here. haha! We’ll buy the book to find out. EM Kaplan @meilaan Yes. Odd situations including a dog door, burlesque dancers, and Star Wars bed sheets. Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Sounds like a wild ride. Reviewers have your characters jumping off the page. Describe your writing style. EM Kaplan @meilaan I love colorful, natural dialog with stereotype-busting characters who may be ridiculous but realistic. Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Josie seems like an adventurist! When was the book released and where can we buy it? EM Kaplan @meilaan TODAY is the release day for Dim Sum, Dead Some! 🙂 You can find it on Amazon. http://bit.ly/DimSumDeadSome Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Dim Sum, Dead Some is witty and playful. Makes for a good read. Does the story tie-in the other two books? EM Kaplan @meilaan It’s the 2nd Josie Tucker story, but you won’t be confused if you read it 1st. My other book, Unmasked… EM Kaplan @meilaan …is a completely unrelated fantasy/paranormal series. Maybe something for another chat sometime. 😉 Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield Yes, please do another interview! Would love to learn about other books. Thank you for joining us this evening. EM Kaplan @meilaan Thank you so much for chatting. It’s been a pleasure. Sezoni Whitfield @SezoniWhitfield We enjoyed it! Thank you again, and have a great evening!
