@AmiKatyC How do you feel about being classified as a Bizarro writer and how accurately does that title apply to your work?
@JeremyCShipp I like being a Bizarro. Each author in the community has a unique style, voice, and point of view. We’re all weird, and that I am.
@FreddysFingers So based on the current economic standpoint do you think that we, as a nation, can ever recover and if so what are your ideas?
@JeremyCShipp I believe civilization on the whole is currently running on fumes. Only systemic zombification could revive us now.
@kekw What’s your personal favourite out of all the stories you’ve written? And why?
@JeremyCShipp At this point, Cursed. Probably because I wrote the tale recently, and because I feel such a deep connection with the characters.
@mystica43229 Do you have 2 clean up gnome poop in your yard?
@JeremyCShipp I don’t have to clean up any poop, because the ninja monkeys use the poop to create their ninja stars. Gross but effective.
@crucify_brett Why are you so likable?
@JeremyCShipp I try to let my natural weirdness shine through. Some seem to like that. The attic clowns don’t think I’m evil enough though.
@littlefluffycat I remember the guy who filmed Egg was surprised at the difference between writer-you & you-you. Happen a lot? 🙂 Discuss!
@JeremyCShipp Various people I’ve met assume writers of dark fiction must be scary. But I’m not. I’m rather soft-spoken and unassuming.
@SinAuthor When the world is taken over by the living dead, who will your zombie celebrity crush be?
@JeremyCShipp I’m the sort of zombie who only crushes on his zombie wife. In truth, I’m only be interested in celebrities for their brains.
@catstrak Exactly how many gnomes live in your attic?
@JeremyCShipp 101 Yard Gnome Dalmatians used to live in my attic until the evil clowns started oozing from the mirror up there. Now there are 0.
@JeremyCShipp It would take a team of 40 extremely tiny gnomes to get there Journey to the Center of the Earth style.
@ShennandoahDiaz If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be and why?
@JeremyCShipp I’d be a filing cabinet filled with notebooks and papers. Even as a human, my innards are stuffed with stories and ideas.
@SamBradley11 Has social media worked as a marketing tool?
@JeremyCShipp Social media has blessed me with copious opportunities to stay connected with my readers and to increase my readership.
@chrisbowsman What is your favorite movie, tv show, and food, and what influence do these have on your writing?
@JeremyCShipp The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Naruto, Spaghetti. These inspired my spaghetti western story about skeleton ninjas.
@bnapier A LARGE peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a yard gnome that talks only in haiku? Which would you rather spend the next 5 minutes with?
@JeremyCShipp I’m a human who loves his peanut butter, but I I’d choose the haiku gnome. Gnomic haiku are cheesy but extraordinarily moving.
@JeremyCShipp It would be a dream come true for Takashi Miike, Terry Gilliam, Park Chan-wook or Hayao Miyazaki to direct Cursed.
@DamonLord Quick! Your house is on fire and you can only save ONE of your books/stories. Which one?
@JeremyCShipp I’d save Cursed. I’m proud of the book on many levels, and I love the characters. They’ve been excellent imaginary friends.
@Chivalrybean Why do you sell via subscription as opposed to single stories on your website?
@JeremyCShipp The subscription service motivates me to write more stories more often. And I think the varied subscription levels are fun.
@JohnnyHellstrom Who killed Bambi?
@JeremyCShipp Bambi falls prey to a cycle of violence. The hunter kills her mom. She kills the hunter. The hunter’s daughter kills Bambi.
@chrisbowsman What’s the worst movie you’ve ever finished, and the worst you shut off?
@JeremyCShipp Some movies are so bad they’re awesome, like Troll 2. Glitter, however, was just horrible. And I couldn’t finish The Ringer.
@jenni_fleur What crazy thing do you do/ own for inspiration when you write? Like Ernest Hemingways, rabbit foot in the pocket crazy.
@JeremyCShipp For inspiration, I like to surround myself with weird toys, art, figurines, masks, statues, yard gnomes, and coconut monkeys.
@crucify_brett If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, which would you prefer, alive or dead? And who would it be?
@JeremyCShipp I’d want to pick Hayao Miyazaki’s brain. I’d prefer to meet him after we’re both dead, because being ghosts would be fun.
@JeremyCShipp I wouldn’t wish an attic clown onslaught on even my worst enemy. Plus, the clowns make a delicious rubber chicken noodle soup.
