Writing and B-Fest and Editing, Oh My!

Besides all of this writing, I've been asked to speak on a panel at my local Barnes and Noble for B-Fest, the YA-oriented festival where YA authors speak at bookstores and hold events for readers. While I don't write YA, I couldn't pass up the chance when asked to talk about the creative process, that is, my characters, plot, and connecting plots in a series.

Blood Talk: Enchanters!

Blood Talk: Vampires!

People often ask me why I chose to write about Vampires, and my answer always is: I didn't choose to write about Vampires; they chose me.

As I've said on this blog before, my mother is to blame (or thank) for my avid interest in all things Dark. She would watch all the old horror movies while pregnant with me, and I guess some of it rubbed off on the little premature baby inside. 

Anyway, Vampires are hypnotic, sexy, cruel, damned, monstrous, needy, and, I think, necessary.  

When You Should Be Writing But

I feel we owe it to ourselves, as writers, or people who want to be writers or people who are aspiring to be published, to start putting our ideas down seriously. Sure, we're screaming into a void and it's just as likely no one is listening or even screaming back, but we do it anyway. Maybe because we need to, maybe because it's all we know. Or we're drunk. Either way, it's something we do.

Blood Talk Episode 3: Dracula and The Sons of Thestian

The Sons of Thestian (The Harmatia Cycle: Book 1) is a brilliant YA Fantasy novel written by the wonderfully talented M.E. Vaughan and I'm still reading it. It's taking me way too long to finish it but that's my fault - nothing to do with the book, though it is long - and that's just how I like them. You can track more of my reading progress for The Sons of Thestian through Goodreads.

In other news, as I've just realized I haven't written about it here (for shame), I am somewhat happy to announce that instead of five books for The Dark World series, there will be SIX, yes SIX, you read

Repost from S.C.Parris.com: Bloody Work

Bloody Work February 10, 2015 When you’re a writer, especially a writer who is vampire and fantasy-inclined like I am, you often find it…trying to sit down at your desk or couch or wherever your wandering inclination for tea takes…
