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!


fbnotificationsSo you know that pesky Facebook change that’s coming at the dawn of the new year? No? Well, it’s a little thing that reduces visibility on Facebook Pages, like mine above, and well…everyone who has a Facebook Page for their business.
It sucks for a few reasons. One of ’em is that, we already can’t get our posts we DO posts on there visible to all of the people that have ‘liked’ our page (we have to pay for further visibility to really get anyone interested in our content), and they decided to make it so you have to click a little button, even if you’ve already liked the page, to ‘Get Notifications.’

I’ve given you guys a screenshot of this to help you see what it’s like. So go, I implore you, go forth and click those buttons on all the pages you have ‘liked,’ that is, if you want content. And you do want content from us right?

You especially do for me, because this upcoming year promises to be a busy year for me.

After all, there are only


I mean, that’s a pretty big deal. It’s been about three years since I self-published The Dark World: A Delacroix Novel, and to now have signed a contract with Permuted Press for all five books, it’s astounding how much can change in as little as a year.

To further that thought, I went on an interview for Weinstein Books recently for an internship.

It was amazing being in that office, for starters, and I should hear back from them (after doing a little work for them) in the first week of January or sooner. (Hopefully sooner.)

In other news, I had an amazing writing streak yesterday, where I clocked in two chapters of The Two Swords, writing the whole entire day, only stopping for food and other things. It was glorious.

Today, of course, as equilibrium would have it, the ideas have left me and I don’t want to think about writing, let alone look at the story, so of course, I took to Instagram.

I had to stop by the DMV after dropping my boyfriend, Alfred, off to work. I’ll admit, I was dreading it, wanting to put it off for another day because the DMV is known for being horrible in every aspect. Wait times, rude people…etc.

Surpringly, within minutes of sitting down, they called my number:

dmvand I, flummoxed as I was, looked around for my booth, took my eye exam, renewed my license, and left.

dmv2I’d never been out of there so fast.

Needless to say I was quite happy to have the rest of the day to myself.

So this






And not to be outdone, Sage had to get in on the mindless videos:

Currently watching The Good Wife (I’m kind of obsessed), and laying on the couch in a lipsticked-slump of numbness.

What are you up to?

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.
