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!

Awesome Feedback and College-Consumed Days

Sorry guys, since school’s started up, I haven’t had much time to update this as I would’ve liked, but I have a bit of time before I must sleep to rise early for my nine o’clock class (remind me why I made my schedule that way, again?), I decided I’d share some things that have been going on with me.
My mother’s friend told me she wanted to buy the book a few months ago. Low and behold I get a notification from facebook: it’s a reply to a status update I wrote about what I was writing.

 “your book reads like a script… Very visual… Wicked.” is what the woman in question said. Isn’t that wild?

I’ve heard this same compliment everywhere, though I never tire of hearing it. “You know how to weave and craft scenes, Sheron.” “Your characters are alive, Sheron.” “Your characters are so colorful.” “It’s like I’m THERE.”

And we all know what I have to say to these compliments. Aloud, I’m all “oh wow thank you so much. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.” But in my head it’s more, “Wow. Wait till they read the next one. I’ve gotten wayyyy better at…everything.” And it’s utterly true. Scenes, settings, dialogue, even the action scenes, I’ve grown exponentially, and I can’t wait for everyone to read it. My only upset is that college (and working some weekends) takes up most of my time so that by the time I’m ready to write, it’s time for me to rest, or some other manner of livelihood must be attended to before I can even think about writing.

But I do make time where I can.

Time’s catching up to me, and I find as it does, the story gets more and more vivid, though I’m not sure at all how it’s possible.

Well, I must sleep.

Ta-Ta For Now


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!
