    Forge Books, 9781250178954, May 28, 2019 (Non-Fiction)


    “You don’t have to be a fan of Karen and Georgia’s much-loved podcast, My Favorite Murder, to appreciate Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered—this how-to guide is for absolutely everyone. Grab a copy for every young woman you know who’s graduating, every co-worker who needs a pick-me-up, and every friend who needs some good advice.”

    Emilie Sommer, East City Bookshop (Washington, DC)


    “With the same refreshing honesty, wit, and fierce feminism that fans have come to love in their wildly successful podcast, Georgia and Karen present a blueprint for how to stay sexy and stay alive. From mental health to addiction to family, relationships, and loss, these autobiographical essays offer advice and commiseration without sacrificing self-awareness and humor. Much of what makes their podcast so popular can be found in these pages—perhaps most importantly the gentle yet insistent reminder that we are not alone.”

    Erin Ball, Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park, WA)


    “Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark bring the breeziness of their popular podcast, My Favorite Murder, to print in this collection of life hacks and true confessions. Alternately hilarious and wise, the two play off of each other with the abandon of old college buddies. Fans of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck will find much to enjoy here. While the book is a stitch, the advice the pair doles out is solid and bankable. The book should be in every college freshman’s backpack as they leave for school.”

    Grace Harper, Mac’s Backs (Cleveland, OH)
