Not really, babe.

Yeah. That's a true story. I still left the drunken tweet on my Twitter feed, hoping one day it becomes a catch phrase.

I waited to write those scenes until the book was finished. Since I didn't really know how to approach them. I did a little bit of research with some kind of FBI textbook that went into super-gruesome detail about serial killers. Then just being in PBs brain for three years--it all came together. Very upsetting scenes to write.

That there wasn't a single scene or line of a dialogue from the book.

If you guys want me on Joe Rogan you should reach out to Rogan's people. I'd gladly do it when the book is out. Or even before.

You HAD to write a 10,000 word dissertation?!? Thank you. Very flattered. The Sean Bateman gay tweet was, hmm, just a tweet. And I thought it was an interesting idea. Disappear Here has for some reason appeared in all the novels: and. I. don't. know. why. I had no idea Patrick Bateman would be in American Psycho when he first appeared near the end of The Rules of Attraction.

Favorite: The Rules of Attraction because it caught the spirit of the book and Roger Avary is a truly inventive director. Loved it. Least favorite would have to be The Informers, not because it's such a bad movie but because I was a writer and a producer on it and it just fell away from me and it did not end up resembling what me and Nick Jarecki my co-writer had envisioned. Very hard process, depressing. But there are things I like about that movie. There is a longer cut that makes it more palatable. Oh well.
