Black Tears: Charlee has been published!

I am super excited for this moment! Even if it’s self-published, it’s a huge accomplishment for me to get it there! 

It was a really tough road in the last few days. So many times the publisher would reject the cover or reject the interior for some simple flaw. How Annoying! I’m glad it happened that way, just go get everything just right. I still found some spacing issues because sometimes my version didn’t reflect what the publisher had. They’re so minuscule that I published anyway. If you’re considering going the route that I went, I have no regrets. The only hard thing about self-publishing is being responsible for the marketing. I’ve been doing a little bit of that so far, but now I have to do it full force. Prepare for repeat posts on facebook! 


The paperback copy is available here.

The e-book/kindle version is here.


I appreciate your support and please write a review on amazon!

Erika Damn Castle!

I've always been told that I'm an adventurous girl and I cannot deny any of it. I would love to see the world and experience all of the stories it has to tell me. I am a child of the arts, developing my senses in music, painting, sketching, crafting, et cetera. But writing... it was a talent I believe I was born with. I'm not saying I'm an amazing (grammatically correct) author, just that I'm a natural storyteller. I can remember from the time that I learned how to read and write, I was eager to create my own world. I would scribble out tons of poems and short stories, then forcibly share them with my family (or even with my classmates). One of those stories resulted in the creation of this blog. Black Tears. As a child with an already wild imagination, I would always have these equally crazy dreams. One of those dreams was so vivid, that I awoke in the middle of the night and jotted down everything I could remember. From that point, the dream evolved into a poem, then a short story, and then to a complete story. It is the fruit of my 20 year procrastinating labor, and has been published into a book (the first of its series). Tune in to stay updated on the growth of myself as an author and the series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating it! XX , Erika
