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!

Repost from S.C.Parris.com: Bloody Work

Bloody Work

February 10, 2015

When you’re a writer, especially a writer who is vampire and fantasy-inclined like I am, you often find it…trying to sit down at your desk or couch or wherever your wandering inclination for tea takes you, and simply…write.

I had numerous occasions to write The Two Swords when I wasn’t attending school, and did I write? Here and there, flittering aimlessly through the ‘where are these characters taking me?’ to the ever-present, ‘oh damn I should just start this all over and make a story that makes sense!’

Thankfully, none of these things truly won out and now with school, work, keeping house, reading acquisitions for Burning Willow Press, making Blood Talk videos, and thinking of my story when not writing (which is far too often I’m afraid), I’ve finally set aside the time to just write – and that is all – most – of what I plan to do today. Get the story at least half-way complete.

I’m writing this blog post because it is long overdue, and to remind myself that I have something to talk about, that I have something to share (because I often think I don’t), and to keep my goals in-line with everything I’ve done so far.

It’s not having a book out that makes one a writer, it’s actually sitting down and taking the time to write.

After all, the book is the end product which makes you an author, the work itself, the time it took to write the thing, to always come back for more, is what will always make you a writer.

With Blood and Love,

P.S. What other amazing inspiration is there for writing ones book besides another mock cover?

Isn’t it wonderful? Thanks, again! R. A. Moore!

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.
