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!

I Realize I Never Did A Cover-Reveal On My Own Blog

How silly of me.

By now, you’ve seen them, but I think it good to have it in my archive just ’cause.

Here are the gorgeous covers done by Christian for Books 1, 2, and 3 in The Dark World series.

The Dark World: Book 1

The Immortal's Guide: Book 2

The Two Swords Book 3

He captured all the nuances of each book beautifully, and his attention to detail to character is astounding. I’m extremely happy with them.

Just so no one’s confused, however, I will say that these books follow a group of characters, as such there are scene dividers and threads of everyone’s story as the series progresses.

For the first cover, that mean-looking gentleman is Christian Delacroix (note the golden ring on a finger), Xavier Delacroix’s brother. Though the story mostly follows Xavier, Christian plays a larger role in the series as a whole and I’m thoroughly pleased he was placed on the front cover for the first book that does, just so you know, take place in London.

For Book 2, the adamant-looking woman with ripped clothes is Alexandria Stone. She is our resident human in this dark fantasy and is being dragged across the Dark World much against her will, but there’s a quiet fire to her that lingers just beneath her surface. Also note the paleness of her face from left to right–a beautiful denotation of her struggle and what she’s undergoing in this story.

For Book 3 we are blessed with Alexandria Stone again, yet she is notably different. Her face is all but pale, her eyes glow red, and she has a darker glow about her–indeed, the wood she frequents is twisted now, bats spread throughout. This is by far my favorite cover, and my favorite book, as it is the turning point for the characters and the story takes a much, much darker turn. The fact that she is farther away from the cover than previous, and looks on out of the corner of her eye with that quiet fire, that pride shows the truth of her being that is just beginning to form in this book elates me. Dracula’s secrets are truly revealed in this book in a horrible way.

So there we have it.

What do you think?

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.
