ReVamp Book Tour: Guest Post

Say Hello To My Little Friend

In case you are unfamiliar with this movie line, it was spit from the mouth of Al Pacino in his role as Scarface, right before he machine-gunned about a billion of his enemies. I mean, they were on his property. Stupid enemies. When it comes to people doing us wrong, most of us aren’t Cuban drug lords with the luxury of heavy artillery. Sometimes we yell, sometimes we ignore, sometimes we do get our sliver of revenge. But mostly, we move on and box up the hatred deep inside, where it will stay, perhaps forever.

As a novelist, writing is my machine gun. Sound weird? Maybe. But that’s how I get things off my chest. High school bully, overbearing mother, conspiring coworker. I say, kill them all. In words, that is.

In reality, the characters in my stories aren’t just nameless, faceless ideas, despite the disclaimers (ahem). They’re real people that I’ve known in the past or still know, and one character can be a combination of several people. Some of these people I have pleasant memories of, and others, not so much. But whether they’re my Hitler or my Gandhi, they will get dropped into my worlds, where the former most likely won’t fare too well and the latter may struggle but will live the life of a hero.

So how do I do the deed, you ask. As a horror writer, there are numerous, gruesome revenge methods at my disposal. To name a few, well, we have axing, boiling, crucifying, dismembering, eating, falling, guillotining, hanging, impaling, jack-hammering, knifing, liver-removing, machine-gunning, napalming, overdosing, poisoning, quartering, rats, suffocating, torturing, unboweling, vampire draining, whipping, x-raying (to death), yo-yo pummeling, and zombie hording.

Now on to the moral of this guest post: be nice to others. Or more specifically, be nice to me. Because you won’t like me when I’m angry and typing.

And to the Beamer driver who cut me off at the lights today on Dorchester and Broadway – I’ll be seeing you in my next book.

    Thanks for the post, but can you tell me what your book is about? I’d love to hear more and if I like it I might want to read it!

      Hi Jesica! Thank you for your question! Revamp is an apocalyptic vampire novel that follows a group of survivors in the fight to reclaim their country. It’s a story of revenge, patriotism, and love and the heroes and monsters they make of us all. Just a warning, though, it’s not a Romance – it’s New Adult Horror with some graphic scenes. Hope you check it out :)

  4. haha, I love that you can exact your revenge through your writing. Yeah, I definitely wouldn’t want to end up in a horror story. lol. It’s great to meet you!

    very interesting…. I just don’t know if I could ever be a horror writer… you have to have some big demons in there

    Hi everyone! Happy October, and thank you for checking out my post – I had a lot of fun with it :) Revenge through writing is the best. Plus, you don’t go to jail, which is a bonus. Good luck in the giveaway!
