Welcome to my Blog! Here you’ll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I’ll even be reviewing books I read (if you’re here for movies I’m into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Hershey Park / Book Covers / Book Sales

Taken with my iPhone at Hershey Park’s Zoo yesterday. Had no idea Eagles were so incredibly large! Their wing spans can reach up to 7 feet across! Needless to say my mind was blown.
Moving on, I’m back in New York, and I returned home to some amazing news. Another happy customer, tagged me in a Facebook post, showing me they received their copy of my book at last.

Quite quite lovely. I was in the car when I signed onto Facebook on my phone and saw the post. Gave me a nice jolt of pleasant surprise (I often forget I wrote a book at all).

Just really nice to see that others are supporting me and believe in my work.

As of today I’ve gotten another person greatly interested in my work and she begged for the link to the book, which another friend of mine happily obliged to give her. It’s amazing what following your dreams can do. Read more about my latest happenings, including updates to my website, and an artist agreeing to create the cover for a new novel: The Tales of Sinner Sharpe

So a friend of mine has agreed to create the cover for The Tales of Sinner Sharpe. We’re discussing the idea of the novel and many other things as we speak. Creativity is indeed at an all-time high. I suppose high-speed roller-coasters were exactly what I needed to get myself back on track. 😉

As for my website, I’ve updated it a bit more, including fan pictures on the front page of those who have brought my book (though it just those who’ve taken pictures of themselves with my book; there are many more who have not), and an updated to the forums and my author page where I also showcase my books. I’ve also included a Links page where I post my other websites and the websites of other authors or artists that I enjoy.

Keep your bite, authors. We’re in this together.

It’s awesome you have a published book! Did you self publish? I am just starting out writing my first full length novel, and I’m posting the chapters on my blog.. 🙂
Your novel sounds really interesting. I wish you loads of luck with your series 🙂

Any tips for a writer-wannabe? :))


Yes I did self publish. 🙂 And yay! Good luck with the novel! I’d say my first ‘tip’ would be, if you’re writing, you can’t stop writing, and you absolutely NEED TO KEEP WRITING, you’re not a wannabe darling, you’re a writer already! I have tons of other novels that I’m putting out next year and the only thing that keeps me going are my fans, and my (sometimes moments of utter despair but that’s another story). You just gotta keep writing and if people like what you’re saying, you’re set. 🙂 I wish you the best of luck and will be checking out more of your blog on my downtime! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

The New Year & A New Focus On My Vampires
I'm choosing, with this round of storytelling, to dive into 'harder topics,' and things I want to write about. I want to give my worlds more nuance, my characters more stakes, and hopefully more heart. I write for everyone but I cannot deny my experiences--Black experiences--are what have shaped me and should shape my writing. I'm adamant about this because of the erasure of my Black characters in THE DARK WORLD series by white readers.
The Tales of Sinner Sharpe: Dark Waters
This helped shape the nature of the story: Sinner is an outcast from this island. He has no magical ability, same as all from Othril, and when on the mainland, this lack of magical ability is apparent—he is ostracized not only because of his physical dark features, but his inability.
Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
If you haven't opened your email by now (and why aren't you subscribed to the newsletter, yet?) then you don't know that DRACULA: Book 6, the final book in The Dark World series has been released!
