I am beyond thrilled to have rock star royalty on my little blog. Jeremy Wagner, lyricist and guitarist for the death metal bands Broken Hope and Lupara, and now a multi-published author, has graciously agreed to go Mancode with me today. His novel, The Armageddon Chord, a thriller, drops Monday everywhere. 

Tune in to the end of the interview for our special contest! 

Let’s do it. 


HOW DID YOU COME TO FOLLOW RACHELINTHEOC?
*JW: I saw you being retweeted alot. I decided to pay more attention to your Tweets and was laughing hard and digging your stuff. Then I followed and the rest is history.
LET’S DECONSTRUCT STUFF. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO START? (MANCODE, CHICKSPEAK, ETC.)
*JW: I’m down with breaking down the Mancode. I’ve always given RachelintheOC my 2 cents worth as a “unique, original, non-typical” male.  Therefore, my point-of-view in the Mancode universe is gonna be different—I hope—when I discuss it.
I DECONSTRUCTED THE PENIS & THE VAGINA. NEITHER SEXY WORDS, BUT GREAT UM, PIECES OF EQUIPMENT. ANY THOUGHTS?
*JW: I’ve always thought the word “penis” is a bit weird. “Cock” rolls off the tongue much easier, don’t ya think? Moreover, I’m “down” with vagina…I always liked that name, but I also like names like pussy or cunt. It’s funny, a lot of women totally detest the word “cunt” when it comes to genitalia names, but I’d like to point out that the great Erica Jong used “cunt” in a Playboy interview and she really made it sexy. I wish people would get over their fear of “sex-related-slang” words…specifically, slang for genitalia and sex that isn’t used in derogatory ways, but rather, in healthy and hot ways in the bedroom.
YOU’RE KNOWN FOR YOUR BADASS GUITAR PLAYING? DO YOU FEEL THAT HELPS YOU IN THE BEDROOM? 
*JW: Aside from the obvious fact that my fingers do amazing things (goddamn, that’s corny), I’ve found more intimacy with my guitar has made me more sensuous as a lover. That sounds goddamn corny as well, but I do believe it.
YOU NEW NOVEL, THE ARMAGEDDON CHORD, HAS TO DO WITH A ROCK STAR http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=giltfree-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0983129770&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrGUITAR HERO AND A SONG THAT, ONCE PLAYED, RELEASES THE APOCALYPSE. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT IDEA?
*JW: I got the idea when I was writing new riffs for Broken Hope songs. I wanted to write the heaviest riffs possible, and it was at that magic moment, that I got the idea for The Armageddon Chord. I suddenly thought it would be insane if some guitarist played a heavy and literally, “earth shattering” power chord. That’s when the story began.
YOU’RE VERY SEXY. HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF WRITING EROTICA?
*JW: Thanks for the compliment. I have actually written erotica. Check out my “werewolf threesome” story in the anthology, Fang Bangers. I will probably write more in time. My brand of erotica will most likely possess some stamp of horror or darkness…
I’M SOMETIMES GIVEN A HARD TIME FOR “STEREOTYPING” MEN. WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON THAT?
*JW: I think you call it as you see it and I agree with you on almost everything you write…I’ll tell you right now, as a man, I’ve found most of my gender to be nasty, pathetic, rude, piggish, obnoxious, sexist, crude, callous, mentally-handicapped, and douchebags. I’d be a hypocrite if I said I didn’t enjoy porn and have an X-rated mind, but that said, I love, worship, and respect women—just ask my wife! Moreover, unlike the standard male, I have a brain, I groom myself and I smell really fucking good! LOL.
YOU’VE BEEN WRITING MUSIC FOR OVER 17 YEARS. WHAT DO YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE FOR, MUSIC OR FICTION?
*JW: My passions have shifted from music as a priority with fiction as a close second, to now: fiction rules my world, number one! I still make music and love to record and perform, just now, being a novelist is the most important and rewarding artistic expression to me.
WHAT’S YOUR BOOK TOUR SCHEDULE LIKE FOR THE ARMAGEDDON CHORD? WILL PEOPLE BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR GORGEOUS GREEN EYES IN PERSON?
*JW: I hope everyone gets to meet me! Right now, I’m just waiting for THE ARMAGEDDON CHORD to sell and take all my appearances as they come. Believe me, I will appear ANYWHERE as long as you’ll all have me.
YOU’VE GENEROUSLY OFFERED UP A PRIZE TODAY. HOW CAN PEOPLE WIN?
*JW: I’m offering a signed, first edition, trade-paperback copy of THE ARMAGEDDON CHORD. The redhead here tells me that in order to win it, you have to leave a comment below that includes:

  • Where you’ve shared a link about The Armageddon Chord — Facebook, Twitter, your own blog? And provide that link
  • Whether you’ve gone over to my Amazon page and LIKED my book yet (paperback or Kindle, or BOTH!)
  • Mention your fave RachelintheOC post! (She’s written a boatload. Most popular are listed to the right. I like the sex ones. No surprise there.)
  • Your Twitter and email so she can contact you. 
This looks to be a hot contest, babe. You’re a tough customer. 

*Thanks for the interview, Rachel!!!!!!!!
Thanks to you, Jeremy for your honesty and humor. Your book is fantastic and I can’t wait for you to share it with the world. 

Jeremy and I will look at all the responses and pick a winner out of a hat next week! Best of luck. 

You can follow Jeremy Wagner on Twitter @wagner_jeremy or on his Facebook fan page. He has a great website also, full of all his haps. He lives in Chicago with his lovely wife Kym (note, also a redhead), and his two teenage stepkids. Bless him.

  1. Only RachelintheOC and Jeremy Wagner can make an author interview this HOT!!  BRB, I need a glass of wine and a cold shower.

  2. Wow, Jeremy…as of right now your book is #9 on the Barnes & Noble paperback list and #21 on the Nook list — and that's just pre-orders! I hope people show up over here to get their hands on a signed first edition…I can tell it's going to be valuable, baby. #whew #hotproperty 

  3. Haha thx Jackie. Jeremy made this interview hot, for sure. He's a great guy with a terrific sense of humor. We laugh A LOT on Twitter about goofy men and the reactions I get. He even laughs at himself quite a bit, which is awesome. So important. 

    His book is a GREAT read. I know you'll enjoy it. xo

    There shouldn't be a lot of wonder why his book is in the top 10 and why Rachel is so cool. =)  Great people and personalities receive the delighted responses of their audiences.  I would love to win a signed copy of his book for my hubby. xoxo  Here's where I mentioned it https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/Aleisha.Gore/posts/202797023115315?notif_t=like  And I RT Rachel's and Jeremy's tweet about it as well.  Too many of Rachel's tweets to pick just one but I love the It's Called Etiquette Dumbass blog post.  Also YES! Liked on Amazon, of course!  =D

    A great interview, I really enjoyed it. I've retweeted this interview because I appreciate supporting authors in all regards. I'm a metal fan, mostly Swedish and Finnish metal like Finntroll, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, etc., so I look forward to checking Jeremy's band out. Best wishes for much success with your book The Armageddon Chord. A fascinating and fun concept. Kind regards! My twitter is @DeanLappi, and email: author_dean_lappi@hotmail.com
