The Dark World: Book 1 is Free — No More!

Jan 17th, 2023 – EDIT: THE DARK WORLD: BOOK 1 is no longer free but you can read snippet of the book on Amazon as well as pick up the ebook cheaper at my shop for only $1.99!

THE DARK WORLD: BOOK 1 has been out for seven years now. I figured it was time to make it free — for a while. I’ll see going forward if I want to keep it that way but it’s $1.99 USD on my shop when the sale is done.

I’m going to contact my publisher to see if they can reduce the price on online stores because it should be discounted as it’s the first in a series and it’s been out for so long now.

Sinner Sharpe & a Twisty Plot

In other writing news, I’m at the end of THE TALES OF SINNER SHARPE: DARK WATERS, and the story has really come together. It’s an S.C. Parris novel so of course there are characters with ulterior motives and it’s really given the story it’s own legs.

I’m super excited to finish it and I think those that read The Dark World series will love Sinner!

I’m off to finish writing!

With Blood and Love,

S.C. Parris

is the author of The Dark World series and horror short story, A Night of Frivolity. She can be found playing RPGs and asymmetrical horror games on Twitch when not writing her next project. She runs horror website, Monster Thoughts, and the podcast when she remembers to.

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!
