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!

Quick Update! Writing Up A Storm And Creating New Content

Quick Update! Writing Up A Storm And Creating New Content!

This will be super short as my lengthier posts are now on my patreon, but I just wanted to say that I am still writing if you’re not keeping up with me on Twitter, and I’m writing quite a bit.

I’m currently working on DRACULA: Book 6 of The Dark World series and as of this writing, I am on Chapter 16.

I’m also working on JUDGMENT, my urban fantasy romance and I’m on Chapter 15 with that (decidedly shorter chapters than on DRACULA, which is an epic fantasy).

And lastly, I’ve resumed working on THE TALES OF SINNER SHARPE: DARK WATERS as of yesterday, and I’ve reached Chapter 2 on that.

I don’t normally have my hands in so many pots when it comes to writing, but I’ve learned to juggle my writing skill between projects (as I had to do with a recent internship and with my Multicultural English Literature academic career). I’m a bonafide writer. All this writing is only making me much more confident in my skills and even with the short story collection I put out in October, my ability to juggle different stories was greatly strengthened by that little self-given project.

I’m never doing something like that again though. At least not for the foreseeable future.

My strength lies in long form prose – namely fantasies of a larger nature.

I like big books, I cannot lie.

I’ve also started a new blog called Monster Thoughts where I write my more focused, horror/fantasy-based articles and analysis down for free (the longer, more extensive stuff is $2/month on my Patreon). I wanted to do something more in line with what I learned in my internship and with my degree, but also have it be something I actually love. (I really love talking about monsters. Watching horror movies, reading horror/fantasy books, and discussing the origins and effects these creations have on us as people, our psyches.) I have a few authors tapped to contribute to the blog and I’m really excited for it to start taking off.

So please check it out if you have the time, and if you want to contribute, you can read the FAQ page before you fill out the form.

With Blood and Love,

S.C. Parris

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! He is known as Jack the Ripper by the greater London (human) public because of is proclivity to leave his victims where he kills them.He is not as beloved as his brother and as such other Vampires look down on his actions as they often bring unwanted attention to Vampire kind.Seeks to prove himself to his brother and all Vampires at large.Allows his bloodlust to consume him.Of course, there’s…
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…
