Embracing the Darkness

I think I’m going to need another pen name.

One good thing about being a lesser known (for now, lol) indie author is that I can decide things like switching up between what I write now and what I want to write. Well, technically, what I have written, just not published.

Welcome to my darkest nightmares sweet readers!

One of my first attempts at horror is just about complete, thanks to the latest ATA Anthology. The piece was accepted and is now being edited. Not going to lie, I certainly feel out of my depths – ya girl has NEVER written anything like this before, but when the opportunity presented itself I had to try.

Authors from Darkest of Dreams, an ATA Anthology. September 2022

And if you or someone you know is into things that go bump into the night (aka cryptid horror) then check out our Kickstarter.

There are lots of creepy good stories to be found in this anthology, and if you show us some support by Saturday, you’ll receive not one but TWO freighting good extra short stories!

You can be the first to find out which creature my story is based on by joining The Stories Stations in October.

My next story was one that I began working on last year but dropped.

Again, I mostly have only ever shared Romance tales, so a story about Black and Indigenous Vampires was just too much.

Is it too much for y’all? We all may find out soon!


Because right now I have a mock book cover, tagline, and a blurb for said story.

You can all thank BIPOC Vamp Day for that one!

If all goes well, I’ll be able to share some of the first chapter as well this week. Apparently I just needed to ‘cut my teeth’ a little before taking on what is shaping up to be quite the story. Though as I was working on it yesterday, I realized that when I publish the story that I’ll need to do so under a pen.

Any suggestions?

Gather ’round sweet readers, and help me celebrate my latest projects – can’t wait to share them with y’all!

“Continue reading, continue writing, and continue loving the process!”
