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!

Eternal Con 2014

Was a lot of fun, hence my uber long string of a lack of posts, but I’m back home now and ready to attend to this blog as I must. I got an autographed picture from one of my favorite wrestlers (yes, I am still a huge wrestling fan), Mick Folkey/Cactus Jack/Dude Love/Mankind.

It made my year, easily.

I picked up a few comics as well.

They are The Flash and The History of the DC Universe, respectively. I haven’t really read either yet. I’m not sure what I’m waiting for, really.

I’ve gotten a huge push in the writing direction of my life, and that’s where I’ve been spending all my time, or at least, trying to (I’ve been easily distracted lately, it happens). A huge push in the sense that I know where the story’s headed and where I want to take it. I’m trusting in my characters to lead me to their subplots as they have done for the past two books so that I can move forward with the main plot more or less.

Off I go to write.

I hope your days were as fun-filled and inspiring as mine.

Also, I’m starting to get serious about Pinterest. I already have a board up dealing with The Dark World: Book 1 and as the weeks go by before the book is published, I will put up more boards dealing with all the groups of characters – Enchanters, Lycans, Vampires, Dragons, Mermaids…etc. leaving a little comment here and there under the pictures so everyone can get a greater glimpse into the Dark World and how these characters operate (even when I don’t show it in the books). After all, there’s only so much one can show in a book. 😉

Keep your bite,

S.C. Parris

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!
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!
