SPOTLIGHT, INTERVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: Hard Rock Roots Series by C.M. Stunich

Real Ugly

Turner Campbell is an asshole.
I f*cking hate him.
But I can't get enough either.
He sings like an angel and f*cks like a devil.
If I could, I'd run away and never look back because to tell you the truth, I think this man might be the death of me.


Naomi Knox is a bitch.
I can't f*cking stand her.
But I can't stop thinking about her either.
She looks like an angel and plays like a devil.
If I could, I'd f*ck her good and forget all about her, but to tell you the truth, I think this woman might be my last saving grace.

Get Bent

Naomi Knox is missing.
I don't even f*cking know whether she's dead or alive.
What I do know is that she's the air I need to breathe.
She's my redemption, an all consuming fire that burns in my blood.
And I'll do anything to find her. Anything. Even if means the end for me.
& & &
Turner Campbell is searching.
But he has no f*cking clue what it is he's searching for.
There's darkness all around and enough secrets to choke.
There are angels, and there are devils. It's impossible to tell them apart.
Light needs to be shone on the truth, but there's no one left to hold the torch. The line between life and death is blurred, and the players are all thoroughly entrenched in the game. The question is: am I still one of them?

Danielle's Review - coming soon

Tough Luck

Ronnie McGuire is my target.

But I wish he wasn't.

I didn't sign up for this destruction, this pain.

In his music, I hear his soul crying out for me.

If I could, I'd run away from here and never look back because to tell you the truth, I'm terrified. There are forces weighing in on me that even I don't understand. I'm scared. Things are dangerous. This could get real ugly, real fast.

& & &

Lola Saints is a godsend.

But I wish she wasn't.

I don't know sh*t about her, but already, I'm hooked.

When she plays, I can almost imagine the ghosts of the dead are calling out to me.

If I could, I'd shed my soul and leave the pain of the past behind me. But I can't. I have to figure out if there's a way to fall in love anew and respect the old. But something else is going on, something weird. Something that tells me my tough luck might just run out real fast.

Interview with TURNER CAMPBELL! 

(Warning, may contain spoilers for those who have not read Real Ugly and Get Bent)

Danielle: Can you believe we are moments away from meeting TURNER CAMPBALL from Indecency?
Jillian: O.M.G.  I’m so excited!!  What do you think he will be like?
Danielle:  I’m not sure, but we are about to find out, I think I hear him just outside the door!

Turner bursts though the door in all his glory and we are awestruck, the man is smokin’!

Jillian: *whispers to Danielle* No man has a right to be that hot.
Danielle: *nods in agreement, too far gone to form a sentence*

While looking at turner Danielle’s gaze suddenly stops right around Turner’s crotch and she tilts her head.

Danielle:  Girl pants?  Really Turner?  I swear I thought that rumor was false!

Jillian: *smacks Danielle* That is NOT a nice way to start an interview Danielle!  You could at least say hello first!

Danielle: *smiles up at Turner* Hi Turner, we are very excited to be sitting down to do this interview with you!  Um… let me re-state my first question, okay?  Um… Girl Pants….. Really?!?!?

Turner: Listen, babe, I get more ass wearing these pants than I would naked.  The denim cups the cheeks, alright?  And it doesn't hurt to enhance the package up front either.  I happen to know Naomi likes 'em, too.  Even if she'd never admit it... Got you to look didn't I?

Jillian:  I’m sorry for my friend here, let me ask you a real question now: Describe for us one of your tattoos, one we don’t already know about and how/when/why you got it.

Turner:  Well, I've got so damn many now it's hard to keep track.  Shit, have I talked about the one behind my right ear?  Nobody knows it's there, and I don't really like to talk about it, but hell, you b****** are from another universe, so I figure my secret's safe.  As you probably already know, I hate my effing mother.  After all she ever did to me as a kid, I don't owe her sh**.  But I did get a tattoo to remember her by.  Not so much because I loved her, but more because I want to remind myself how not to be.  It's just a stupid heart that I got in the back of some dude's van, but there you have it.  Now, you know how to keep a secret, right?

Danielle: Okay I’ll play nice now Jillian…. Turner, What was the funniest/craziest place you ever woke up after a night of parting?
Jillian:  Really, Danielle?
Turner: *Laughs* Now, that's a good question.  Assuming that all of my memories are in sorts, I'd have to say on a beach in Mexico.  Don't know which one, don't care.  All I know is that when I started partying, I was in San Diego, and when I woke up, I was lying naked next to a couple of chicks in football jerseys.  Weird as shit.  Thankfully, all I had to do was call Milo, and he got me a ticket back.  End of story.

Jillian:  Huh… Well then Turner, what was the scariest place?
Danielle: *under her breath* He gives us that gem and that’s the best she can come up with?
Turner:  Shit.  That's easy.  I woke up once with a guy standing over me holding a baseball bat.  Angry husbands are the worst, you know?  Can't say that ended well...

Jillian:  Since Danielle isn’t liking my questions, how about this….  Where is the craziest place you’ve had sex with someone, Turner?
Danielle: Now we’re talking!
Turner:  Hope you ladies aren't as easy as these questions... That's a no brainer.  Onstage with Naomi Knox, hands down.  With the power flickering on and off, and all the chaos, that was the craziest shit ever.  I kinda thought we might get attacked by rabid fans.
Danielle:  That was... wow.  If you could have a perfect day, what would it be like?
Turner:  Music, sex, and the love of my life.  Give me those three things and I'm in, no matter where I'm at or what's going on.

Jillian:   Who is your biggest musical inspiration and if you had to compare Indecency’s sound to another band, which band would it be?
Turner:  My biggest inspiration comes from my friend, Travis.  When we lost him, that's when the shit really started to flow, you know what I mean?  Nothing like a life changing f*** up to get creativity moving.  Music is born from pain, you know?  As far as bands, I'd have to say our sound is most similar to Falling in Reverse or Atreyu.

Danielle:  You know, now that I’m thinking about it, I have no clue how long Indecency has been together…. Care to shed some light on that for us Turner?
Jillian:  Oooh Great (tame) question Danielle
Danielle:  Why thank you!
Turner:  We've been together since I was fourteen f***ing years old.  It's been good, and it's been shit, but I can't imagine life any other way.  Music's the only thing that's kept me going.  Until now... Naomi friggin' Knox.  Who'd have thought, right?

Danielle:  Lets get to know the inner Turner a bit more shall we, Jillian?
Jillian:  Yes, lets!  Turner, what is your biggest fear?  How do you combat it?
Turner:  Uh … my fear?  To be like my useless mother or my long gone father, to screw up as a parent.  I can't think of anything worse than creating another person who's as effed up as me.

Danielle: If something happened, and you suddenly couldn’t be a rock god anymore, what would you do with your life?
Turner:  Honestly?  Now that I have Naomi, all I want to do is have babies with her and kiss her friggin' face off.  That's it.  It's that effing simple.

Jillian: Tell us the top 3 things on your bucket list.
Turner: Gettin' clean, marrying Naomi, hitting the top of the bestseller charts.

Danielle:  And finally.  Turner, what do you foresee for Indecency and Amatory Riot’s futures?
Turner:  I wish I could say I saw blowout concerts and parting till dawn, but I'm pretty damn sure this crazy sh** isn't over yet.  Things are going to go down, and they're going to go down hard.  Here's to hoping I make it through this in one piece...
