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!

E3 and the PS4

So you guys know I write and enjoy tv and movies, but I do greatly enjoy video games.

Which is why I watched E3 yesterday with my boyfriend and I plan to do so again today – and what I saw for the Playstation 4 at least got me very excited.

First off, they came right out and said that they wouldn’t impose YOUR right to buy and lend off used games. Right in Microsoft’s face! Now, I have an Xbox 360 and I do have a PS3 and I do play on both – but my preference, honestly, is for Playstation. Simple story of being raised on it.

Now, the price for the PS4 is fantastic. A clear $100 less than XboxOne. At $399, it’s a fantastic price for a brand new console, especially with all the cool games coming out for it.

My eyes are on Outlast, Watch Dogs, and Final Fantasy XV – oh, and of course Grand Theft Auto V.

Now aside from all that, I am still editing the Dark World, I have queried agents and am waiting to hear back from them, but other than that, I’m great. How are you?

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!
