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!

Car Crash; Shaken But Not Stirred (Internally)

So I was backing out of my driveway and when I was out and cutting the wheel to straighten it, my boiling-hot tea spilled, quite literally, all over me, and I reacted, by spinning the wheel when the car was in drive, resulting in me going up on the curb and hitting a pole.
I know right?

But despite the damage (and it’s pretty bad), I’m okay, and as the title suggests, I’m shaken, yeah, but my internal drive has not been affected. After a brief talk on the phone to my dad (who is coming to fix the car tomorrow), and a talk with my boyfriend, I decided to head to school despite the damage and at least get some learning done.

So here I am, and here I stand.

Shaken but not stirred.

My main thought is that I didn’t hit another person and that I, myself, am up and walking around.

Take it easy, loves.

And Keep your bite.

Anything can happen.

THANK GOODNESS!!! You are hurting and the car is kaput, but it could have been worse. Heal and be well. Lots of love, Emily

Why did I just now see this comment?! Thank you so much for the love and kindness, Miss Guido. 🙂 But I’m fine and the car still runs. Going to get it fixed up later on this week! All is well!

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!
