Musician first, crime novel junkie second. Self created a new genre of music called Crime Rock with my group Rose Indian. Sounds like Grunge/Jazz/and Film Noir locked in the same jail cell without early parole. I'm an L.A. Native. I live in venice and i never go to the beach.
Honestly, this site could be simplified. I don't use it much, but when I do, it's usually to let people know about signings/readings and book release dates. Most of the people I've connected with on here are friends on Facebook, so it's more of a bonus site, rather than a necessity. You may want to use it for promoting your tracks and uploading videos. I think that would work well in your case.
