The Dark World is OUT!

The Dark World is OUT!

The Dark World (the series in its entirety), is me laid bare. All my anxieties, my fears, my struggles with low self-esteem, the need for often constant approval from family and friends and romantic relationships, are represented in various characters, situations, and dialogue. Though one would be hard-pressed to find a character that directly represents someone in my life, they are all there, mixed in my colorful cast of Vampires, Lycans, Enchanters, Dragons, Merpeople, Elves, and Elite Creatures.

I hope those that deal with anxiety and/or depression recognize these ailments in my characters and understand this is not a 'fun, light-hearted journey,' this is a maddening tale, a fairytale I call it.

Repost from S.C.Parris.com: Blood Talk; Blood Wine

Blood Talk; Blood Wine

January 20, 2015

 Today was a bit crazy - and by crazy, I mean York College crazy. Long story short looks like I'll have to take out a(nother) loan. Something I seriously didn't want to do - but hey, when life throws you punches, you roll with 'em, right?

 Anyway, I shot a new Blood Talk Episode:

Yup! Will edit it a bit later after I get some writing done.

I'm really proud of myself for continuing to make the videos, even with no script or anything, I started talking and the theme of the show just came together. Said theme: Vampires and why S.C. Parris likes them.

 I'm so eager for you guys to see it. :)

 Oh! My boyfriend got me this amazing Dracula wine from the Vampire Vineyard in California for my birthday. I cannot wait to taste it!

Well that's it for now! Check back here tomorrow for the video!

With blood and love,

Happy Halloween from The Dark World Characters!

xavierHappy Halloween from Xavier Delacroix! (Shh, don't tell him it's definitely November now.) I woke up in a huff like an hour ago after plans being avoided for my Halloween, so here I am writing a blog post because I figure, 'why not, it's been far too long anywho.'

And I figure, what better way to get future readers interested in my forthcoming novels then a belated Happy Halloween from its resident Vampires!

A Little Life Happens Along The Way

We can suffer from anxiety/depression/etc., but we do not have to let it control our lives, year, month, week, day, hour, or second. We can choose to move on. We can choose to get up and do something. We can choose to put our anxieties toward productive activities.

Publication Dates

I know everyone over at Permuted is super excited this morning....er, afternoon. (Just realized it was 12 pm, as of typing this.) Anywho, we at Permuted just got a nice present in our emails this morning - we got the release dates for all of our novels/series...etc. And it's a relief, I must say, to see when my books will be out in the world. 2016 is the year you can expect, not only the first novel in The Dark World Series, but all 5, yes, all 5. Permuted and I will spit out all 5 books within a year, so you don't have to wait a year here or there for the next book in the series. Exciting to say the very least!

Unfortunately, I shall have to put all my amazing cover ideas on the back burner (ya-huck), while I churn out the rest of the series within the next year or so.

That said, I'm keeping this short, and will post the first release date, as I'm sure you're all dying (har-har) to see what it is.

As follows:

2/23/2016 The Dark World 1 - The Dark World

Awesome, no? Kind of like a late Valentine's Day present, if your Valentine is into Vampires and historical fiction and political squabbles between Vampires and Lycans?

They are? Oh, well, great! They'll love it!

The titles of the rest of the series have stuck in my head since I began seriously writing the second novel, and as the story fashioned itself, the titles of the remaining novels came out and stuck. And this was what, a year or two ago?

Who says I can't stick to one thing, huh?

Well, there you have it, the world of publishing at its finest.

I will post the rest of the release dates, the closer we get the release of THE DARK WORLD. What? Don't look at me like that. It's only fair.

I said stop it, Bela Lugosi's Dracula, I'm NOT releasing the dates of the next title!

Now, I'm going to go eat and tackle THE TWO SWORDS until my fingers fall off...or I have to go to work tomorrow.

Nevertheless, don't forget to

Keep your bite,

bite
