Blog Tour: The ‘Things That Go Bump in the Night’ Squad by Andrew Buckley – Interview and Giveaway

 

Hello Readers!  Welcome to our tour stop stop for

The ‘Things That Go Bump in the Night’ Squad
(Hair in all the Wrong Places #3)
by Andrew Buckley

presented by Month9Books!

We have Andrew on the blog today for a quick Q&A.

Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post!

 

 

A menacing shadow looms over Elkwood, as a dark and sinister evil creeps into town. Only Colin Strauss can feel it happening. He is a werewolf, after all.

A routine Night Watch mission ends with Colin rescuing a mysterious girl from monster hunters, causing shock waves threatening to rock the town of Elkwood to its very foundations. Just when Colin thinks things can’t get any worse, he starts having girl problems.

If anyone is up to the task, it’s Colin. In the past year, he’s faced an evil biology teacher, defeated a power-hungry wizard, and united a group of unlikely creatures and freaks to defend their home.

Can Colin defeat the growing evil, evade ancient monster hunters, and not mess things up with his sort-of girlfriend?

Having hair in all the wrong places is fast becoming the least of Colin’s problems . . .

Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

As a teenage werewolf, Colin has overcome many challenges, but the darkness creeping at the edges of his world is beginning to close in.

 

 

What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

This being the third in the series, the whole HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES story was inspired by a childhood love of werewolves, and how they were depicted in movies. My dad used to record the movies off late night TV so I could watch them the next day. I fell in love with campy adventures such as Abbott and Costello Meet the Wolfman and Michael J Fox’s Teenwolf, and true horrors such as An American Werewolf in London. Later in life, when I was looking to pen my first middle-grade novel, I wanted to explore the werewolf character. That’s where this book came from.

 

 

Tell us about the main character(s).

The main character is Colin Strauss, now a little older, but non the wiser. He’s come to terms and embraced his werewolf side and works with a government sanctioned team led by his mentor and pack mate, Silas Baxter. Colin is still that same awkward, slightly unsure teenager, but he’s much more headstrong and loves to run headlong into bad situations. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t. In this book though, Colin finds himself responsible for more than he bargains for . . .

 

 

Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

There’s a tragic event that happens at the end of the book. I had a hard time writing it because you never want to part with a character, especially one everyone really likes. But I’d say it’s my favourite part of the book. Also the epilogue  . . . which I can’t share for obvious reasons.

 

 

Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

Aside from the part mentioned above, there’s another part that has Colin experiencing girl trouble for the first time. It was tricky to write because you never want your characters to suffer (not really) and it also brought back a few painful memories of my own.

 

 

What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

Other than HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES 3, I have three books in the works. THE FATE OF FREDDY MITCHELL is a middle grade paranormal adventure that will be published by Month9Books in 2020. I also have a YA sci-fi adventure in the works, and a secret gothic mystery project that I can’t talk about . . . due to its secrecy ;)

 

 

It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!

Thank you so much for having me!
