Goodreads asked Adrean Messmer:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Adrean Messmer The title came first. I was listening to an episode of Caustic Soda and they were going on a tangent about psychopomps. One of them made the pun "psychopomp and circumstance." I knew immediately that I was going to use that line. The rest was just stitching together these characters and their stories as they tried to figure out what life (and death) after high school is all about.
