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!

Preorder Ronald Moore’s Debut Novel, NOCTURN TODAY!

You get to pick from two fancy new covers made from artist Joel Amat Güell, who also designed my cover for A Night of Frivolity:
ANoF

In fact, Joel has designed covers for all of the Before Sunrise Press works, all of which can be seen here, at their store:

All of the covers are beautifully created, but none so much as the artwork for NOCTURN, which, to be truly admired, must be seen up close:

 

Isn’t that incredible? Yes, you can pre-order it now, and yes, you may want to do so soon because you can get author-signed copies of this beautiful piece, and I think it’s only for a limited time, so do it now!

I, myself, am planning on snagging me a copy as soon as I can. Besides Mr. Moore being a fantastic writer, he’s also been a good friend to me on my writing journey and was the one who sent me to BSP, telling me they were accepting short stories for their anthology.

Amazing how things happen, isn’t it?

So support this entrepreneur and get this book today!

Oh! I haven’t even told you what it’s about! Peep the synopsis here:

When Michael, an amnesiac vampire, wakes up on the edges of Breton, a strange Virginia mining town in the midst of Civil War, he puts the townsfolk on a trajectory for disaster with an ancient coven of vampires and their mysterious handlers, “The Alliance”, uncovering an international conspiracy.

The government officials of Breton await the arrival of a lantern containing the heart of a powerful vampire, a telepathic device used to control the masses. As war rages outside the town, an unlikely team of misfit orphans and spies takes on the local government and the vampires who control them. When the lantern is released and Lord Ruthven, the vampire trapped within it, descends on the town only an amnesiac Michael can stop him from destroying everyone in Breton. As the battle rages into the night, Michael must question himself over whether he should join the vampires or fight them in order to save the people of the town.

Sound like something you’d like?

Of course it does!

Snag a copy and don’t forget to Keep your Bite!

Ronald Andrés Moore has kept his in this page-turning gothic novel that is sure to please vampire enthusiasts and steampunk aficionados alike !

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
‘THE TALES OF SINNER SHARPE: DARK WATERS’ Excerpt: Bats
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!
