Twitter Interview: Dim Sum, Dead Some

Hi EM! Welcome to the chat! 

Sezoni Whitfield 
Your book delivers to entertain from start to finish. Could you tell us a little about Dim Sum, Dead Some?

EM Kaplan 
First, thanks for hosting me!

EM Kaplan 
Dim Sum, Dead Some is the 2nd Josie Tucker mystery. In it, you’ll find Josie in San Francisco. 

EM Kaplan  
Josie is up to her usual snarky fun, loving food despite her perpetually upset stomach. 🙂 

Sezoni Whitfield 
So why Dim Sum, Dead Some? http://JustTheEmWords.com 

EM Kaplan 
The 1st book is called The Bride Wore Dead, so using “Dead” in the titles kind of became a thing to do. 

EM Kaplan 
Dim sum is Chinese brunch, which I love. Dumplings on tiny plates…And it’s at the heart of this story. 

Sezoni Whitfield 
Tell us about some of those cringe-worthy situations Josie gets herself into. Sounds like a mystery of fun. 

EM Kaplan 
She first goes to San Francisco to vet her BFF’s new boyfriend–have you ever done that for a friend?

Sezoni Whitfield 
Yes, but I’ve never traveled to another city to do it. lol.

EM Kaplan 
I know! Josie’s the type of person who would. + she gets the bonus of the culinary delights of that city. 

EM Kaplan 
The boyfriend happens to be Chinese. And when he takes them all to lunch with his parents…   

EM Kaplan 
…he tells them Josie is his girlfriend because they can’t handle him seeing a non-Asian. Awkward. 

Sezoni Whitfield 
That is awkward, and someone ends up dead? No spoiler alert here. haha! We’ll buy the book to find out. 

EM Kaplan 
Yes. Odd situations including a dog door, burlesque dancers, and Star Wars bed sheets. 

Sezoni Whitfield 
Sounds like a wild ride. Reviewers have your characters jumping off the page. Describe your writing style. 

EM Kaplan 
I love colorful, natural dialog with stereotype-busting characters who may be ridiculous but realistic. 

Sezoni Whitfield 
Josie seems like an adventurist! When was the book released and where can we buy it?

EM Kaplan 
TODAY is the release day for Dim Sum, Dead Some! 🙂 You can find it on Amazon. http://bit.ly/DimSumDeadSome  

Sezoni Whitfield 
Dim Sum, Dead Some is witty and playful. Makes for a good read. Does the story tie-in the other two books? 

EM Kaplan   
It’s the 2nd Josie Tucker story, but you won’t be confused if you read it 1st. My other book, Unmasked… 

EM Kaplan   
…is a completely unrelated fantasy/paranormal series. Maybe something for another chat sometime. 😉 

Sezoni Whitfield 
Yes, please do another interview! Would love to learn about other books. Thank you for joining us this evening. 

EM Kaplan  
Thank you so much for chatting. It’s been a pleasure. 

Sezoni Whitfield 
We enjoyed it! Thank you again, and have a great evening!
