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!

Editing is OVER!

And believe me, I have been celebrating in my own way (drowning in Netflix shows counts as celebrating, hush), and I’m overjoyed at the story I have now. And as for what has been done with the story – well you’ll have to keep reading future blog posts to find out. 😉
Moving on, The Dark World is the novel I’m talking about in case you’re a newcomer to this blog, and you can read more about it by clicking the link up there on the navigation bar.

And with the completion of The Dark World, (for the millionth time), I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the kinds of stories I want to write and where I want to take my career – ’cause I’ve decided this is what I’m doing for the rest of my life – and it’s fantasy…with a lean toward horror, and darkness, which you’d know if you read my most recent work, my short story, A Night of Frivolity.

I don’t know, it’s something about these kinds of stories that pull to me, motivate me, captivate me, and my characters’ processes are more psychological than anything despite the physical changes to themselves and their world. It’s how I’ve…processed my own life – very much in my own head – and I didn’t know there was another way to do this until I started actually living my life, and I’m sure many of my characters will walk away from their stories with similar revelations, though it won’t be my goal in life to make every story the same, but naturally I do think many writers have a certain theme, and for now at least, I believe this one is mine.

I’m open to change, and to growing as a person and a writer, and I welcome all the change that living life brings – and I can only hope that this shines through in my writing.

Oh, and I’m definitely not shying away from the gritty, the real, the dark, the death…it’s all some of us have, after all.

‘Till next time, keep your bite.

Get To Know Christian Delacroix
I got the finished art for Christian Delacroix from the lovely FeySpeaker during stream on Friday!If you missed the Newsletter that went out earlier today, check out the abridged version below!

Excerpt from Current Vampire-Pirate Work in Progress, SINNER SHARPE
A taste of the new fantasy world I’m conjuring! Some explanation before we jump into it: I started writing this series several years ago, after getting inspired by Glen Cook’s THE BLACK COMPANY series. I wanted to write about a swashbuckling mercenary who has the job of a lifetime, I just couldn’t get the stakes right. If you were a patron of mine, then you know all about Sinner Sharpe and how it went from strictly a pirate fantasy adventure to a vampire-infested pirate…horror adventure. You see, I was stuck on it for years — unable to get past Chapter 1. Literally the other…
Get To Know Xavier Delacroix
If you completely missed the tweet of me freaking out over the art the lovely  @feyspeaker  made of one of the main characters in THE DARK WORLD series the other day, you missed almost crying about how wonderful the art came out.It was so serendipitous to receive the finished artwork while on stream. Because of this, I’m much more inclined to finally go ahead and do a character dossier like I had planned since the beginning of the series but couldn’t because there wasn’t any art for it.So here it is! He is about 30 something years old in human…
