https://sabrinakmercury.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/SKM-Small-Logo-No-Words-400x300.png

Sabrina K. Mercury explores magical societies and futuristic cities as a fantasy and paranormal author. She delights in weaving explicit and thrilling romances into her plots for her readers to get lost in. Her diverse urban landscapes and Earth-like realms are populated with magic users, demons, and other mystical beings.

Sabrina draws her inspiration from science fantasy novels, Asian web serials, and Boys' Love manga. Her love for the fantasy and paranormal genres began with Anna Elizabeth Bennett’s Little Witch and progressed to Maki Murakami’s Gravitation and Frank Herbert’s Dune.

Over the last decade, Sabrina has published under various aliases on FictionPress.com, Fanfiction.net, and ArchiveofOurOwn.org. Her works include both original and fanfiction from short stories to episodic chapters.

Sabrina’s favorite pastimes include trips to the bookstore and writing in her favorite Japanese café. She also loves attending anime conventions and listening to her favorite K-Pop artists, BTS and GOT7. When she is not writing or reading, she spends her free time catching up on the latest episodes of The Irregular at Magic High School and The Penthouse 2: War of Life.

My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.

How Sabrina Writes

Scrivener

My go-to app for writing projects, both long and short. I have both the desktop and the mobile version and they are both worth the cost. From manuscripts to world building binders, I use this app for all my writing needs.

Amazon Kindle

I am never without my kindle when it comes to writing. My library is filled with various books from thesauri and refernces guides to author platform and marketing books. Used with my mobile Scrivener app, I am able to write anywhere.

ProWritingAid

My go to for grammar checking and style editing. It does as much as Grammarly but at a cheaper price if you want the premium. I can use the desktop app with Microsoft Word and Scrivener without losing format. Click the link to try ProWritingAid with a Free Account!

Hemingway Editor

A free online editing tool that is also available for purchase offline. Hemingway Editor highlights your adverbs, weak phrases, complex sentences and passive voice. It's a great tool to use after using ProWritingAid to make sure your sences are clear and readable.

Blue Sky Tabbed Planner

My go-to planner of choice is the Blue Sky Tabbed Planner. It's inexpensive, which you can pick up at your local drug store and has both a weekly and monthly calendar format.

LOC B5 Function Notebook

My LOC B5 Fuction Notebook is the perfect notebook for to do lists. What I love about this notebook is that it is undated so you can start using it any month or even skip one. The righthand pages are made up of Gantt charts and it is lightweight in your bag.
