A Blog Interview with Amy Metz

Amy Metz is the author of a humorous southern mystery series. Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction was her first novel, and it was re-released in September 2014. Heroes & Hooligans in Goose Pimple Junction, released in December 2014, is Book 2 in the series.

She started a blog in the hopes of helping other authors promote their work. In the South, She lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where they have a campaign called, “Keep Louisville Weird.” That’s simply a catchy way of saying support local business. McDonald's and Applebee's are everywhere, but it’s the local businesses that give a city uniqueness and flavor. Local businesses are usually small businesses, with limited capital and resources. Not unlike indie authors.

So she started her own campaign called, “Authors Are Weird Too.” Everybody has heard of John Sandford, Michael Connelly, and Patricia Cornwall. They’re doing just fine on their own, thank you very much. But it’s the new authors, especially the new indie authors who need support. She hopes to do that with her blog.  You can find my interview with Amy below.
