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!

Get To Know Xavier Delacroix

If you completely missed the tweet of me freaking out over the art the lovely  @feyspeaker  made of one of the main characters in THE DARK WORLD series the other day, you missed almost crying about how wonderful the art came out.

It was so serendipitous to receive the finished artwork while on stream. Because of this, I’m much more inclined to finally go ahead and do a character dossier like I had planned since the beginning of the series but couldn’t because there wasn’t any art for it.

So here it is!

about xavier delacroix.png

  • He is about 30 something years old in human years. Forever.

  • Wears a cold facade of uncaring when we meet him, though he cares very much about his younger brother Christian Delacroix (who we’ll meet next).

  • He is Dracula’s favorite Vampire.

  • Bears title “Lord of Vampires” granted by Dracula, himself.

  • Leader of the Vampire Order at Dracula’s behest.

  • Skilled in Vampire battle against Lycans.

  • Renown in the Vampire World due to his seemingly special blood.

  • Formerly in love with Eleanor Black.

  • Parents died due to Lycan attacks when he and Christian were children.

If you want to know a bit more, you can read the first chapter of THE DARK WORLD: BOOK 1 or check the page for the featured Dark Creatures, here.

That said, there are also Xavier Delacroix T-Shirts available for sale!

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
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!
