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!

American Horror Story

I’m gonna take a break from my usual writing-only related posts to talk about an interesting, equal-parts disturbing television show, American Horror Story. Now, I watched the first season last year when it first premiered and was remarkably confused but just as intrigued: It seemed with every new episode, more questions were asked and the way things were revealed and brought about was just done…like I’d never seen in a television show before.

Which is why it makes perfect sense that the 2nd Season isn’t an exact continuation of the 1st, but a whole different story. When I sat and thought about it for a minute, I saw how much it made sense. No matter how involved I had become with the family that had moved into that haunted house, they were all *SPOILERS* dead and the story couldn’t continue (and be interesting at that), with all of them just trying, episode by episode, to keep the “new family” from moving in for good.

Now the 2nd Season is set in an Asylum and I know old faces return (but they’re playing new characters) and even Adam Levine is joining the cast. I can’t wait to see what the new story is, and what’s going to happen in this new season, but I can’t help but say it premieres at the perfect time. Halloween Season.

With all the good things coming in that month alone, for me at least, I’m even more eager to reach October now. With my other slew of shows returning this fall such as


 and as well as a few others, I’m gonna be pretty busy this fall, not counting promoting The Immortal’s Guide once it’s out, and the writing of The Two Swords as well.

So there we have it. The more interesting shows this fall shall keep me most occupied, along with college, and writing, I’ll be a busy beaver. But I will keep posting here, naturally.

I can’t leave my lovely blog abandoned.

Keep your bite.

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!
