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!

‘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.

Ready to move forward.

Which, if you’ve been reading recent posts, I have been.

I’m so glad to fully focus on Sinner Sharpe: The Tales of Dark Waters now while a new group of readers discover The Dark World and sink their teeth into the series.

About the Genre:

I don’t think I’ve ever made it clear what the genre is in the Dark World and as such that’s led to fewer sales (I believe) than there could have been so with that said, here’s where the Dark World series falls:

Epic Dark Fantasy

Epic – It’s a large scope of a series with traveling across and atop mountains, through Mermaid-infested lakes, flying atop Dragons…etc. There are days and days of travel to get to where these Creatures are going.

Dark – There are horrific moments interspersed throughout the series, and the main characters we follow are an assortment of historical monsters we’ve grown to fear in film and television: vampires and werewolves.

Fantasy – Goes without saying. There’s magic, swords, crossbows, arrows, politics, Dragons, Giants, Elves, Merpeople, Gnomes, Satyrs, Witches, and Wizards…etc.

Read Before You Buy:

As said on Twitter recently, all of The Dark World series are now available to be read (1 to 3 chapters, relatively) right here on this website. Just go to the Dark World’s page and click the books you want to read before you buy.


More about Dracula:

And finally, a bit about the final book in the series: DRACULA.

A lot of people have asked me if the title was chosen on purpose in order to get readers, or if this was a retelling of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Naturally, it’s neither. And I’m glad the book is finally out so everyone can see for themselves.

The words “The Dark World Book VI” are beneath the title so it’s clear that this is, in fact, the sixth book in a series.

This book took, on-and-off, about four years to write as life seriously got in the way of writing (and I discovered I flourish under deadlines, which I did not have for DRACULA).

I’ve grown immeasurably since THE GOBLET and I believe that reflects in DRACULA. The characters, as they should in any series, have grown, face new challenges/decisions, and are stepping into their power. The truth of the Vampires and their own special abilities comes to light and this may just be the thing they need to stop the Phoenixes’ magical fyre from destroying them for good.

But, of course, there is always someone else, unfortunately, that wants power for themselves…


DRACULA is out now on Amazon in paperback.

(I’m sure more avenues to purchase from will open up soon in the coming days. I’ll edit this blog post as that happens.)

Thank you, always, for your support if you’ve purchased, gifted, or read my books in any capacity over the years.

With Blood and Love,

Get To Know Christian Delacroix
I got the finished art for Christian Delacroix from the lovely FeySpeaker during stream on Friday!If you missed the Newsletter that went out earlier today, check out the abridged version below!

Excerpt from Current Vampire-Pirate Work in Progress, SINNER SHARPE
A taste of the new fantasy world I’m conjuring! Some explanation before we jump into it: I started writing this series several years ago, after getting inspired by Glen Cook’s THE BLACK COMPANY series. I wanted to write about a swashbuckling mercenary who has the job of a lifetime, I just couldn’t get the stakes right. If you were a patron of mine, then you know all about Sinner Sharpe and how it went from strictly a pirate fantasy adventure to a vampire-infested pirate…horror adventure. You see, I was stuck on it for years — unable to get past Chapter 1. Literally the other…
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! He is about 30 something years old in human…
