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!

War: A Poem

In this fading pain,
A pain encumbering with my action,
I slip,
Recollecting lost fragments of things not in time.
A quote,
A choice,
A love,
My head screams with my regret,
But push forward I must.
Fatigue drags me further down,
The sand beneath my feet
There is something there,
A journey of hardened choice,
Greater insight…hindsight.
For my regrets are not masked,
My choices not caught in careful arms.
They fall.
Like my knees to the ground.
The sand biting my knees.
The pain–
It is no longer fading,
Encumbered with my action it is
And my regret,
Knows no greater agony
In a past yet lived,
A future now gained.
I slip from my knees,
Find peace in releasing
My flesh to the ground,
The sand.
There are no waves to greet me,
No hands to grasp me.
I am with my pain,
My choices.
Not free from the binding pain
Of my past,
My journey before me.
Buried with my battles,
The myriad scars.
I know,
This war looms on evermore.

Keep your bite,

S.C. Parris

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!
‘Dracula’ is Live – The End of The Dark World series Is Here
It's been a wild ride since the start of The Dark World series with Book 1 back in 2013/2014. Naturally, a lot has changed since the first book (just read through the blog to see how much), and although this journey has been beset with trials, drawbacks, and more, I'm proud to say the series is finally finished. I feel free. Elated.
