Update on Publisher News

I know it's been a long time since I've updated, but it's been on my mind, believe me, so here I am. a Lot has happened recently, I've been to Comic Con, and due to my last blog post about my book and my Creative Writing Professor's friend, the publisher, I'm here to expand on my update about that. So I finally have the book in my hands, but a chapter is all off, and me being the perfectionist I am, in my rush to get the book in my hands and into the publisher's hands, I overlooked that mistake. So I put a note in the book explaining the mistake and where the chapter is supposed to start, and that, despite that, the entire book is as it should be, and if my professor needs me to order another copy, I shall.

But I feel like he won't and he'll take it as is.

I feel like this won't deter a positive outlook on my work from his publisher friend, for whatever reason.

I'm happily optimistic about all of this, like everything will finally work out.

I'll keep you all updated.

In the meantime, Disorderly for Kindle is free right now as of my writing this.

Keep your bite (and your fingers crossed!)

New Review for A Night of Frivolity!

Jayme K., the author of Youth, read my ebook and reviewed it on Goodreads. You can read it in its entirety here, or simply look below:

Jayme K. rated it 5 of 5 stars  Truthfully I don't liken myself a fan of Anne Rice or even much period piece literature, so I went into this short story with mixed feelings. That being said, having finished the story - I have to say, I was impressed. Despite not being a fan of the genre, S.C. Parris still managed to captivate me with the style and prose of which it was written and delivered a really good and interesting tale. I'm not going to delve much into the storyline since it is a new release and I'm not looking to spoil, but I have to give props to anyone who can get me fully invested in a story, regardless of how long or short, in spite of having a pre-conceived stance on the genre of which it happens to reside. ANoF is a worthwhile read, not just for horror fans, but for readers in general. I recommend.

You can get your copy of A Night of Frivolity here for $4.99.

Keep your bite.

NEW 4 STAR REVIEW FOR THE DARK WORLD!

From one of my favorite people, Miss Kristina Davis (of Goodreads) comes a review for The Dark World, I have been waiting for with bated breath since she received her Giveaway copy in November of 2012. And it's here!

Let me just say that while I gush about her now, I hardly knew her back in November and it is over the course of the months that she took her time reading the book that I got to know her a bit more. She's very interested in books as am I and her passions for books and stories knows no bounds.

Click the link above to go to her profile and friend her if you wish, she's amazing.

Okay, now moving on to the review. It is one of the most honest, wonderful, incredible reviews I've received. And it must be noted that I am working on editing The Dark World but with college, work, and the other books in my queue, it has unfortunately taken a back seat, but it will be done eventually. And it won't detract from what is already written.

Here's the review:

"S.C Parris is bringing vampires back to their roots in her Delacroix series, no sappy or shiny vampires here. They live in the dark (except where magic allows them to travel during the day), live off the blood of humans, and war with other Creatures.

The Dark World is full of memorable characters and rich back story. It is obvious that the author has been thinking of this story for a long time because every single character has a story to tell. S.C. Parris has taken classic vampires and given them a new mythology while maintaining their vampire-ness, as well as evolving them to find ways beyond their limitations through technology.

There were a few minor typos and grammatical errors, but being aware that it is a self-published book, it is remarkably well done and it did not distract from the story at all. The only other issue that I had with the book was Alexandria Stone. Because of the blurb and the prologue I assumed the she was the center of this story, and if not her, than the matter of finding her. While there are points in the story where it is clear people are looking for her, by the end of the book there is very little resolution on this matter. You are still left wondering what is going on with her and why is she so important. Being that there are more books in the series though, I am sure we will get to know soon.

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads, but I am looking forward to purchasing and sinking my teeth into the next book in the series."

Now, to address her comment on Alexandria Stone's importance. I, myself, noticed that I did not, indeed, put in anything much about her in the first book, but she and Eleanor Black are both given more...depth in The Immortal's Guide and Miss Stone's place is definitely expounded upon. Not to give anything more away, I'll just say that there's a reason both Eleanor and Alexandria are featured on the cover of TIG while Xavier and Christian were featured on the cover of TDW. There's a duality within the series, a theme that repeats many times in many different ways throughout the books.

But I've said too much! You'll just have to buy them yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
