- Amber Benson is on Twitter and Tumblr. Be nice and not creepy, for once in your life.
- At the time of this recording, Amber's newest novel, The Witches of Echo Park, is available for pre-order. Get it from Amazon...or maybe try an actual store with books in it where humans go.
- Amber has written five Calliope Reaper-Jones novels since 2009: Death's Daughter, Cat's Claw, Serpent's Storm, How to be Death, and The Golden Age of Death. See above. Buy them and read them.
- Amber co-directed Drones (2010). There are a bunch of talented people in it, Thrilling Adventure Hour "Bens" Acker and Blacker wrote it, and it's a workplace comedy mixed with Close Encounters of the Third Kind. You have time. You saw a Transformers movie at some point, right? Ok then.
