Author: One Year Book-A-Versary (Memory Bound) 🎃

There was something about a grand neglected house that didn’t bode well for visitors. It wanted retribution for its fall…

Cheers and pass the cider, wouldn’t you? Ker-kaw! 🥃

Author: Another Five Star Book Review (In-Depth) 🌠

I woke up this morning to a wonderful, in-depth review of my book, Memory Bound. Many, many thanks. I’m very grateful. It’s wonderful getting to see the book through another reader’s eyes. Click here to read all about it. The reviewer also posted the review on my Amazon book page and on his Goodreads account. 🌠

If you’re interested, my book is currently free through Kindle Unlimited or available as an ebook purchase. Hard copy version is on sale through the month of August–20% off to celebrate 200 subscribers (aka, Arcians) on Peregrine Arc! Check it out on Amazon or ask your library to order a copy at your local branch. If you bring a cookie to sweeten the deal, you may be reading MB by Tuesday. 😉

Now excuse me while I go chase down Mr. Swinebottom. He was still doing laps around the house from our last five star review…

Author Interviews Herself on New Book: Memory Bound (Humor)

Interviewer: “Good afternoon, Arcians! We are excited to have with us today, up and coming indie author A.R. Clayton. Peregrine Arc is her platform and Memory Bound is her first pending publication. Welcome!”

Author: “Thank you. I don’t know what an Arcian is but thank you for having me.”

Interviewer: “It’s something I came up with backstage. Your followers need a name, right?”

Author: “Do they?”

Interviewer: “…Yes. Yes they do. Moving on. First question from our fans. What inspired you to be a writer?”

Author: “I’m still stuck on the Arcian thing. Followers should already have names, unless the hospital forgot to write them in on their birth certificate. Or their parents couldn’t make up their minds. Or maybe they were switched at birth, and their actual name is something horrible, like Swinebottom. Imagine finding that out when you’re twenty. That would be dreadful…”

Book Update: Cover Reveal & Title

Above, you can see the cover of my upcoming book–Memory Bound. I finally feel comfortable releasing the cover for view as I (really, truly) believe publishing is very close at hand. A second editor is going through my narrative currently as a “last proof” edit and is also formatting my book for ebook and hard copy print. It’s definitely been a long journey but I’ve learned a lot.

The editor is hoping to get the book back to me before Halloween, but I’m not establishing a firm publication date at this point in time. Every time I’ve set a deadline, another step has popped up I need to complete. It’s become comical really, and is to be expected (I think) with one’s first book.

Or so I tell myself. With hands shaking and eyes twitching. Pass the wine, would you?

Seasons of Writing & Novel Snippet

I’ve been in a particularly busy season of my life for the past few years. There’s been some respite and solace, but overall everything’s been at a steady, enduring clip. As things shift and change, I’m starting to realign my time and focus on my personal goals: writing and exercise among them. I’m also volunteering and becoming involved in activities that support my growth and refill my cup. As an introvert, this is a careful balance. Remember my formula? One hour of socializing = one year of hibernation. And yes, I’m still in the red.  But it’s less crimson and more of a happy, candy apple red now…
