Savage ~ MonaLisa #CharacterConfessions #ynwrites #ASMSG #AuthorGO

There was a time in my life when I simply didn’t give a fuck.

I figured no matter how hard I tried, I would always end up on the dark side of my nature, so why care?

You see, I’m a blood child.

I seek out crimson where ever I go, ‘cause it was the color shown to me the day I turned into a killer.

Ah, the memories…

Most people wouldn’t admit something like that, or smile about it. It’s supposed to be buried in that big ole’ closet stocked with those dirty skeletons.

Believe me, I tried to convince myself I was anything but a killer. I tried to blend in with the world around me, do my hair a certain way, dress appropriately, be a normal black chick. Whatever that may be. I pulled it off for a long time.

Then, one day I woke up and I said, fuck it. Fuck this charade, fuck this bloody world! If you see me for what I really am, so be it. I like it better that way.

I want you to see me.

I want you to feel me.

I want you to hear me.

My voice is a call to the hell hounds. You hear it? That soulful, raspy whisper that caresses your soul? Sounds pretty, doesn’t it? Cherish it, ‘cause once I rip my fingers across the strings of my guitar, that whisper will turn into a howl.

I know. I’m being a cocky little bitch. You gotta excuse me. I don’t know any other way to be.

Now that I’ve serenaded you, and torn into your soul with my venomous shredder, let me draw a scarlet river with your blood. Is that such an odd thing for me to desire?

Didn’t you know I was a savage? Well baby, now you know.

Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll and MURDER #ScorpionTail #RockMyWorld #ASMSG #99Cents

“We are Scorpion Tail, and we’re here to rock you ‘til death!”

ScorpionTailAds2.1

 Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and MURDER!

Four unlikely individuals come together and form the indie band, “Scorpion Tail”. Their wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics thrust them into stardom in a small town in Georgia.

When a heinous murder is committed during one of their concerts, it puts the band under an unwanted spotlight. Because of their troubled pasts, they dread what the bad publicity will bring, but it doesn’t stop them from rocking on.

They gain the attention of Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious detective from Japan, who is determined to link them to the crime.

Scorpion Tail’s lead singer, MonaLisa, has plans to throw him off his A-game to protect the band. In a turn of events, she finds herself attracted to him. But, if she gives in, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keep.

While Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only who has his eyes set on her.

Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the death list?

Falling for MonaLisa… #AmWriting #ScorpionTail #RockMyWorld #ASMSG

I learn something new about my characters every day!

MonaLisa, for instance, is very poetic with her dialogue. Maybe because she’s a songwriter. I don’t know. She says things that come out like lyrics. And I promise you, I’m not writing her like this on purpose! She whispers in my ear and her words make their way into a scene.

I read over something I wrote and be like, “when the hell did I write that?”

It’s baffling!

“Try as you will to shatter me. In the end, it would be you crumbling at my feet…”

 

“I refuse to let her drag you down. If you’re going to hell with anyone, its gonna be me.”

 

“How ironic is this? The snake has the nerve to call the scorpion venomous.”

 

With every scene she’s in, I’m falling more in love with her.
