A True Thug Willsin

David Ware

Welcome to the Pleasure Palace, a place where all of your fetishes can be fulfilled for a price. How much? Just your soul.


 

A True Thug Willsin is a book that exposes the deceitful ways Satan manipulates through money, drugs and sex, his three most successful, Worldly weapons.

Willsin is the proprietor of a Pleasure Palace. The Pleasure Palace is a place where one can have all their fetishes fulfilled. But the price is steep. High-ranking Detroit officials, including the mayor, have paid and will continue to do so—one way or another.


Willsin becomes the leader of a drug organization called the Young Hustlers Incorporated. The Young Hustlers take over the City of Detroit’s drugs trade. The City then put together a multi-precinct task-force, committed to annihilating every ruthless, murderous member. This is easier said than done, when the leader turns out to be the son of Satan.

This is definately edge of the seat stuff - From the word go when Sin is driving down to meet the man I got an immediate feel for it. It got more and more interesting and I wanted to know what was going to happen. I mean the torture scene when Algonda gets the tube stuck up his arse, at first I couldn't work out why, and then when the barbed wire was shoved up his "jacksy" my eyes started watering. The brutality, sodomy, murder, and sadism are exactly that and are very well handled, you certainly manage to bring that home to the reader in the goriest fashion possible. I mean when Sin was shot I was left guessing as to what would happen next, and woe and behold, he had a bullet proof vest on, which made me kind of smile that he was going to survive. Whilst this is going on we have a sex scene back at The Pleasure Palace and when I started reading that I just wandered how far you would go. I noticed that in your sex scene everyone is gifted, although I did find it a bit embarrassing, but then again I'm English. Then we have the best drugs, drinks, clothes, cars, technology, houses, everyone speaks the lingo and hangs out in the right places. i mean is this cool or what, but then again we're dealing with Satan right, and I guess he must be a mixture of Snoop Dog, Cyprus Hill, Biggy Smalls, Tu Pac, and a hundred other Gangsta Rap guys. But I must take my hat off to you in the sense that this writing is ALIVE and KICKING and whether I like the violence or not it is certainly buzzing. Backed for its vibrancy - Regards Mick

I think your book is brilliant - i just read chapter 14, it was like A Clockwork Orange in its almost poetic orchestration of violence. Amazing. I was almost put off by the Christian stuff, but you are a powerful writer and I think you would be an inspiration to people that culture either exploits, undermines or ignores. Maybe the drive of the book is, as you say, the fact that you are delivering an extremely powerful sermon, that you do have something urgent to say, as well as the fact you have a gift for saying it.

Kerrie Price wrote 870 days ago

Hi David, as a Christian minister, I would never normally read a book like this. However, it is extremely well written, the storyline flows smoothly, and I agree with others that it would make a great film for those who like those kinds of films. For me it is an alien world! I'm not making any judgment about that. It's just a statement of fact. When I was eight years old, I dedicated my life to serve God and people, and have done so ever since. My book 'Survival Guide for Christians' is a reflection of the life I've lived, and would be just as alien to you as yours is to me. Wow. Isn't it amazing that two people can live on the same plantet, in two totally different worlds!

Kim Padgett-Clarke wrote 899 days ago

I read your biography and I can understand why you would like your novel to be made into a film. I could see the movie playing in my head as I was reading. The characters are just outstanding. Each one has a strong unique personality that fits into the main story like the piece of a very complex jigsaw. Their names also made me smile. I will never look at Shake 'N' Bake on a supermarket shelf again without giving a wry little smile! You give the reader a glimpse of Willsins dark insane world. Well done, and six well deserved stars.

Just checked out your book and I am captivated. This is very different from anything else I've read on Authonomy. When the agents and publishers say they are looking for something with a unique "voice," this is what they are undoubtedly talking about. I'm knocked out by your fantastic dialogue, most of all. But the narrative voice is really cool too, and the characters are vivid and full of personality. A few areas need proofreading/editing, as has been noted by other Autho readers. I'm not sure about the plot yet, the son of Satan idea reminds me of a bad horror flick, kind of cliche. Need to read more to know for sure. But I could see this turning into a dynamite movie script if it gets as exciting as i think it's going to... High stars. ~Gail SECRETS WE KEEP

I am not much into reading food/money/sex works. Publishing your complaints about corrupt local government won't have much effect. If I was you I would try to gather some real evidence then try the court system. Then you will really know what hell on earth is like. Investigative yournalist might be of help.
I applaud the effort, though. Hopefully it is a start to a writing career.

This is very good. I 'm sure you dodn't need that comment now that you are published (Congrats) but I figure I would add my two cents. I could just pict "baby Mack Daddy" hitting on his fifth grade teacher. God bless you. With the focus on redemption I think you have one over on Triple Crown!

Good job.

True Thug Willson. I said I would,and your number's come up, so here goes! But I warn you - the pitches put trembling into my heart, and your book is just not my scene...
I tend to notice nits - hope you dont mind.

Ch.1. The Introduction makes no bones about what to expect. I'll give you that, and the attitude of the narrator appears to me rather juvenile, but of course, he's only ten. The naming business made me smile. And so did the conclusion of the chapter!

Ch.2. You've changed tenses in the space of that first sentence.
And you've split an infinitive in the second paragraph: easily remedied merely if you delete 'always', which is one of those unnecessary / vague words that slow the flow of a story anyway.
The problem with writing in the first person is too many 'I's.
But you leave a good hook to make the reader want to turn to the next chapter...

It looks as if, despite all your misgivings, you have finally made it to the ED. Well done with all that marketing!

nightskyfantasy wrote 816 days ago

I have to say that while I don't really like Willsin - he's too arrogant for me - he is a realistic character. I know plenty of people who sound like him. The blunt first person narrative only serves to highlight his character traits. It's an interesting read so far.

Peace and snowflakes,

Daniel Rider wrote 817 days ago

"A True Thug Willsin" looks as though it is heading for the Editor's Desk in the next couple days and it deserves to. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked Willsin, a cocky, lively gangster from the word go. I think it's the first person narrative that really makes this book pop because I was hooked from the first two sentences where Willsin analyzes his own name: "Will-sin. What kind of bullcrap is that to name a child?" I had been skeptical of the name "Willsin" for a character at the beginning, so this beginning totally knocked me off my feet and made me burst out laughing.

If you read this book, prepare to be entertained in unexpected ways, and shocked in others. Most of all, prepare to enjoy this book. From the short introduction to Will-sin's growing up days (hilarious little story here!) to his intelligent life of crime, this book is a winner.

Annette Russell wrote 817 days ago

A truly riveting read! I'm glad to see A True Thug Willsin where it belongs - on the Editor's Desk.

I love how Willsin gets his name, and his first day at school is a great opening chapter!

Best wishes, David,

Tony Colina wrote 817 days ago

hi Dave,
just read the first three chapters of your book and found them exquisite. maybe, but not only, because the kind of atmosphere in them is not totally alien to me - not that different from what you can find in my OF RUST AND RAIN. i just luv the chioce of the name for willsin (as the Latins - i mean Romans - said: nomen omen 'in your name lies your fate') and the unfolding of his character. for my money, definitely high-star stuff. full backing from me.

Okay, when I first saw the title and read the blurb, I thought this wasn't going to be for me, but, I like to give everything a chance, so I started to read the book. Right away I started laughing. It was just what I needed. Love the characterisation. You write very well.

So far, it's an enjoyable read. All the best to you.

Jeannette Maree wrote 818 days ago

Sorry David, I can’t back your book. It’s all been done before – too many times over, and we don’t need to see your book as a movie. There already is far too much violence on the screen as it is. On the good side, you write well. Jeannette Maree –Café After Closing

"exposes the deceitful ways Satan manipulates through money, drugs and sex, his three most successful, Worldly weapons."
The above quotes are very much truth and a good source of teaching. Well written with great phrases.

Although the story is not my type of read due to all the happenings. It is an action type for particual group of peopel though very insightful for all types.
Good luck and hope that helps.

You evidently don't need any more comments and there is nothing to criticize. Your brilliant work stands alone-great writing, great plot, and great character told through the "I" perspective. This is something I would read, buy and recommend. A 6 star no-brainer! Hope HC publishes you! Dina Rae

Amy Smith wrote 831 days ago

I wouldn't typiccally read a book like this, but i've been persuaded!
The pace was brilliant and held my interest all the way through. Credit to you for making Wilsin, a character i would normally dislike intensely, actually a character that we are backing all the way through this, willing events to go his way. That's a very tircky thing to achieve, and you have deffinitly pulled it off here.
You handle the changes in view point well, and despite the large cast of characters it wasn't too confusing.
It was a little confusing when JJ's gang were introduced as there were so many of them, at times it was difficult to distinguish between them all.
Also, i did notice occasions when you mentioned how a character felt about a situation whilst writing from another's perspective. Try to avoid this unless you are changeing perspective to a different character altogether as it is confusing for the reader and makes them ask how does Wilsin for example know that Nicky is thinking/feeling that?
These issues aside, this is a brilliant book that's gritty, honest and fast paced with snappy dialogue and gripping action to hold the readers' interest. One of the things i loved about this book was that nothing was written that didn't need to be and every word was essential for the telling of the story.
Great job!
Highly starred and backed
Best of luck with this,
Amy :)

jenniferkillby wrote 833 days ago

Hello

A very unique and true grit story. I haven't read something this raw in a long time. You have a "matter of fact" voice which makes the story alluring. I work with felony juvenile offenders off the street so I smiled with the first chapter and WillSin when he was little. It reminded me of a few of the kids I've worked with. This will definitely have a following and may be movie material. Great job with this and good luck.

Thomas C. wrote 834 days ago

David, Willsin is off the chain. I"ve only had time to indulge a few pages but from what I see so far, I like it. I'm putting this on my watchlist and will finish it and let you know what I think. When you get itme, check out Grand Rouge. My Thriller/Paranormal. It touches on hate and how sometimes we as a world breed cruelty through cruelty.

Laura_D_Purcell wrote 838 days ago

This isn't the kind of thing I usually read but the pitch looked interesting and I found myself caught when I started reading. Very original, I think it has a lot of potential. The wording could do with a bit of tightening - just some words that aren't really needed there eg you could take out the "then" on the last sentence of chapter one. With the help of a professional editor you could be onto something really good here.

Elizabeth.NYC wrote 840 days ago

I didn't know what to expect, but I must say this book is brilliant. I'm a big fan of dialogue driven stories, and WillSin has some of the quickest, most clever dialogue I've read. The overall voice of the story (and first-person is ideal for this) is thoroughly enjoyable - comic, smart, and a bit wicked. Great work that I think will find a huge audience. I look forward to your HC review. High stars and on my desk shortly.
Bravo,

Hi David,
Thanks for your message. I'm not familiar with your subject matter, so I can't comment on that, but the writing is excellent. The reader clearly sees the scenes, and your hooks at the end of the chapters are great. The reader definitely wants to go to the next chapter to see what will happen. I've read three chapters. I could see this coming across my television screen one day. I'm giving it many stars.
I have a teen novel, Stopped Cold. I hope you'll come by to read some of it and will feel you can rank it and back it.

R.J. Stanley wrote 842 days ago

David,

Thank you so much for your kind introduction and helpful tip! I am new to the sight and really appreciate it :)

Your book is so realistic, it is obvious you have lived out those emotions and situations personally. It can't be easy to relive those events through your writing, but God bless you that you are willing to in order to bring others to Christ. May He bless you immensely for that, but most of all for having the courage to turn YOUR life around to follow Him. That is wonderful!

As far as technical - excellent. I am just left in awe and wanting to find out what is going to happen and which characters will find the Lord. Gave you a great star rating!

God bless,

Why Didn't Someone Tell Me? The Truth About Love

Dave Weaver wrote 842 days ago

Hi David, I read four chapters and feel like I'm in the middle of the scene, right in the smart-arse conversation so you've put me there really well. I could do with more descriptive passages about the place they're in and what the characters look like and maybe a few step back and observe moments using metaphor to detach the reader a little and give them an overview of what's going down, but then I guess you might lose the urgency and sense of menace which would be a shame. 'You better check him before I wreck him' has got to be one of my all time favourite quotes, I'm going to nick that one for mates. Like his name, very catchy and obviously going to link with the devil motif throughout. I would drop the intro about it though, it's a bit heavy handed and unnecessary. Start right with the childhood memory of the sexy teacher then break almost mid-sentence into the present day action, like he's just snapped out of a comforting reverie and back into the danger of the present. Don't make the guy obviously bad or boastful, let us see that in him by his actions. Badness is always better shown than talked about, just hit us with it when we least expect it, when our guard is down, when we think 'hey this guy seems alright... fuck!!' That's what Stephen King does, sucks you in then hits you between the eyes. So pretty neat stuff, good luck, I'll put this on my watch list. Cheers!

I can honestly say that it is just electric; It'a a rollarcoaster ride from start to finish- the prose and dialogue so smart and witty the read just jumps out of the screen- A page turner if ever there was one-

True saying - sell your soul to that devil man, and he controls- that's for sure- the world is full of the sons of Satan-

love the cover depicting the palace and loved the intro- short and snappy-as i said the whole read is just one brilliant romp and most entertaining - I can see why it is ranked 5 at this moment- well deserved-
when you wrote about Mrs sydney at the start and how you are hauled off the the principle's office-

Reading the first page brought lots of smile on my face. You truly are a great entertainer as a writer. But I feel a little uncomfortable with your present title. How about leaving out the first two words and just say "Thug Willsin"? Just my opinion though.
