The time it was about Witcha Gonna Do?

Posted December 5, 2022 by Stacee in Interviews | 2 Comments

When I got the invite to interview Avery Flynn for her upcoming release Witcha Gonna Do?, I couldn’t resist.  I’m always here for a witchy romance and between this cover and the synopsis, I can’t wait to get my greedy eyeballs on the story.

Before we get to Avery’s answers, let’s check out the book!

Title: Witcha Gonna Do? (Witchington #1)
Author: Avery Flynn
Pages: 336
Publisher: Berkley
Pub Date: December 6, 2022
Find it: PRH | Indiebound | Bookshop | Goodreads

Synopsis: An unlucky witch and her know-it-all nemesis must team up in the first of a new, hot romantic comedy series from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn.

Could it possibly get any worse than having absolutely no magical abilities when you’re a member of the most powerful family of witches ever? It used to be that I’d say no, but then I keep getting set up on dates with Gil Connolly whose hotness is only matched by his ego. Seriously. I can’t stand him. Even if I also can’t stop thinking about him (specifically kissing him) but we’re going to pretend I never told you that part.

So yeah, my life isn’t the greatest right now, but then it goes straight to the absolute worst hell when I accidentally make my sister’s spell glitch and curse my whole family. And the only person who can help non-magical me break the spell? You guessed it. Gil the super hot jerk.

Now we have to work together to save my family and outmaneuver some evil-minded nefarious forces bent on world domination. Oh yeah, and we have to do all that while fighting against the attraction building between us because I may not be magical, but what’s happening between Gil and I sure feels like it.

Sounds good, right?

1. Please give the elevator pitch for Witcha Gonna Do?

First off, thanks so much for having me! As for the elevator pitch for Witcha Gonna Do, I’d go with: A sexy, witchy, enemies to lovers RomCom with a heist, a lust spell, a magical misfits support group, and a tatted-up unicorn shifter with an attitude. If you’re looking for a hot and giggly good time, this is the book for you.

2. Which came first: the characters or the plot?

Oh, Tilda came to me right away and I have wanted to have a heist in a book for about a million years. Lucky for me Tilda + heist = so much fun.

3. Why do you love Tilda and Gil and why should readers root for them?

There’s a little bit of Tilda and Gil in all of us. They’re both a little awkward, a little goofy, and a little bit lost in a world where they don’t always fit in. But together? Despite how hard they fight it, they just fit perfectly together and how awesome is that?

4. Were there any weird things you googled while drafting?

EVERYTHING! I did so much research on magical properties of herbs and flowers, latin translations (for the spells), and a whole lot of looking up accused witches.

5. Without spoilers, which scene was your favorite to write?

Not gonna lie, the railroad scene (you’ll know it when you read it) was a favorite for sure. I love it when the characters in a romance finally give in to the attraction.

Speed {ish} round:

1. You find out that you’re being published for the first time. Describe the next 5 minutes.

There’s a lot of off key happy singing, dancing with my five dogs and probably a beer.

2. What three things would you take to a desert island?

1. My entire TBR. 2. Coffee (no one wants me without it, not even me) 3. A huge stash of Oreo cookies.

3. You can only read one book for the rest of your life. What is it?

No. I refuse to imagine this kind of nightmare.

4. What is the one thing about publishing you wish someone would have told you?

It’s not so much that they didn’t tell me so much as me not listening—and I’ve never figured out a cure for that one. I am one of those folks who tends to jump in with both feet first.

5. You wake up and discover you are Bella in Twilight. You know how it plays out. What do you do differently?

Take him out in the sunshine sooner?


USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She lives outside of Washington DC with her family, Dwight the cat, and a pack of five dogs all named after food. If she’s not reading romance or binging reality TV, she’s most definitely plotting to take over the world so she can banish Crocs from existence. Also, if you figure out how to send Oreos through the Internet, she’ll be your best friend for life. website | instagram
