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!

Patreon: Why I Started One

Hey guys, so this is gonna be a kind of short post about why I started my Patreon.

I’ve long been struggling (as you may know by the frequency of these posts) to continue writing creatively (being in school, writing academically is something else entirely), and I figured being forced to give content on a regular basis would give my creative juices a push and also help me supplement life (and spread the word about the books I already have in stores).

Enter Patreon.

I’ve seen a bunch of people use one and I never knew what it was for until I went to the site myself and decided “Hm, I can do this.” Now, whether anyone reads it or not, that remains to be seen but here’s what I am aiming to put on it on a frequent (talking twice monthly or so) regular basis.

  1. Writing Process Blog Posts for $1.

    The Reason: Now, I’ve had a few people come up to me seemingly out of the blue to ask me how I got this and that published and how to get started. From here on out I am no longer giving away this information for free. (Only kind of sort of free). Feel free to read my writing process on this blog as it’s been up for ages, but anything on my writing process now will be under the $1 Tier: Fae on my Patreon. You can make a request for anything you may want to know about, but as of now I’m no longer giving away free information. Being a pledger and you’ll get all you need to know about how I “did it.”

  2. Brand New Short Stories for $1.

    The Reason: Creating new content will allow me to stay fresh and cultivate new ideas (as before now they came to me while doing menial tasks and me waiting ‘till I got home to make them a reality.

  3. Chapter-Length Snippets of Work in Progresses for $1.

    The Reason: Self-explanatory really. You can stay updated on my progress on any thing I’m working on as you anticipate it’s release.

  4. Commissioned Short Stories for $5.

    The Reason: If you ever wanted your own short story ala PDF file about a vampire, self-insert…etc. I’m your girl. Conditions apply though. As of now: No overly erotic fiction.

As I think of anymore Tiers, they’ll become available on my Patreon page. Or if you have any suggestions, you can shoot me a comment here, through email…etc. to let me know what you’d like from me more.

I’m off to update my newsletter (what are you waiting for? Subscribe!) and head to class.

With Blood and Love,

S.C. Parris

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!
