What was the inspiration behind Edger?
Edger arose like the Sword of Justice at twilight from a placid lake…after binge-watching Chuck on Netflix. My queen and I were devastated to have arrived at the end. We wanted more. Determined, I went down, down, down into the magician’s cellar quarters. We plotted, then pantsed it. Together, we stirred the cauldron: One part Chuck, one part Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and one part superhero movies (for the magician’s daughter is smitten with all the superhero action movie Chrises). And lo, Edger was born.
How did you come up with the title?
Edger (pronounced Ed-jer) is my protagonist. I debated naming it More Cow Bell! but, as the book has no cow bell, I went the boring route and named it after my protagonist.
Which character spoke to you the most?
Belladonna Christian. She was the wife of billionaire business magnate, Chip Christian. She spoke to me at length about this Blue Nile Signature Diamond necklace her husband wouldn’t buy for her. She was obsessed. Sometimes she even woke me up at night. I lost a lot of sleep. In the end, I cut her AND her stupid husband out of the book entirely. I hope they rot in hell.
What was one of your favorite scenes?
Probably Underwearld, the night club scene at the end of the book where the finale unfolds. Our hero and heroine are knocked out, tied up, crammed into a disco ball water torture chamber, and suspended over the dance floor. Skeletor, from Masters of the Universe is referenced, and someone gets the line, “I’m sorry. I’ve been a cow for the last forty-eight hours.”
Will we see these characters again?
YES. There’s a sequel coming in a year.
Why should we read this book?
Come with me if you want to live…
How did you fall into your writing career?
I honestly have no idea who I am, what I’m doing, or how I got here.
Thank you so much for your time!

Meet Edger (Ed-jer), a twenty-six-year-old gadget retail dork destined to become the world’s first superhero!
His superpower: the ability to channel the Collective Unconscious, a psychic network connecting the living and the dead. In his arsenal are the skills of Bruce Lee, the strength of Samson, the wisdom of the ages…and the dancing chops of Michael Jackson—including that one twisty foot move, crotch grab, and fedora tilt.
But there’s a catch…
Like every psychic superpower to get administered through a hypodermic needle, this one comes with a prick. Someone seems to have misplaced the booster necessary for stabilizing his superpower. Without it, Edger has three days before his brain turns to pudding.
Join our Dork of Destiny as he overcomes the world’s greatest butt, two rival Cluck-n-Pray gangs, an evil cow, a Green Bay Defensive Tackle, rifle-toting assassins—and a pair of stoners who inadvertently create the world’s first supervillain after a wild night on Twitter!
David Beem enjoys superhero movies, taekwondo, and flossing. He lives in Djibouti with his family and crippling self-doubt. Help actualize David’s inner confidence. Visit his website today, and buy all the stuff.
