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!

Killing Off Characters

So while in the locker room at college today with my dear friend who has read both The Dark World and The Immortal’s Guide, said that she wants a lot of characters to die, upon my asking who she thought should.
I was shocked at one of her suggestions, as the character she mentioned was (not only one of my favorites), but was, in fact, quite integral to showing the state of the soul once one ventured through The Immortal’s Guide, and did something else that I won’t mention here for lack of spoiling things.

It just shocked me. Even more so when my boyfriend chimed in, with interest on which characters should live or die. All in all another fun day.

What do you think about killing off characters that hold an important part of the story together? Would the story be strengthened or weakened by their death? Would the fans appreciate it? Would you kill someone off just because a fan said the story would be ‘so muuuuchhh bettterrrrrr!!!!1111’ without him or her or it or them?

Let me know in the comments below!

Writing on The Two Swords commences, naturally, and at the very beginning, all I can say is we see trouble starting right off the bat. As it should be in a S.C. Parris story, no?

I’m off to go write some more and scroll through Tumblr, (follow me, kids),

and

Keep your bite.

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.
