Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: Seasons Greetings (Out ’till New Years)

Just a quick note to say I’ll be using the rest of the year to (finally) finish up my second novel–GOTD (acronym given only, until published). I’m currently beta reading for a fellow author, and I hope to be done with this for him by the end of the month/sooner. It’s been a great exercise for me to see how other people write and look at the process from different angles. It’s been helpful in getting my gears going again, clearing the cobwebs and giving me the courage to finish my book.

The saint and I also picked up a bunch of horror movies we found at a dollar store. I plan to watch these to see if 1.) if they’re any good (I’m so very picky about my horror; a lot of it is junk) and 2.) if they are good (or fail abysmally), I will take a look at the plot (story structure) and see what went right and what went wrong. When I write, it’s a very visual process for me, so I feel this will help strengthen my writing. This can also be done after you read a book, of course.

So Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a great New Year. I’m off to Wonderland, ta-ta.

Author: ‘Memory Bound’ Book Birthday📖👻

Happy one year (belated) birthday to my first self-published novel, Memory Bound. It’s currently holding at three, five star perfect reviews. Won’t you give it a read and meet Anne? Details are below. 🥳

GOTD (placeholder for my second novel) is in the works and is another horror novel. Subscribe to stay updated for details and become part of the Arcian crew.

Cheers!

Memory Bound is available through Amazon both as a hard print and also as an ebook. If you have Kindle Unlimited, the novel is free (currently) through that service as well.

Memory Bound is my first published novel, published through my own platform–Peregrine Arc. It’s a horror novel with lots of layers, walks through the woods and thoughts on society. If you give it a read, I’d love to hear your thoughts below or in a review on Amazon. Thank you.

Back of Book:

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

Anne Ditchfield is a woman of sound mind and morals, living a life warped by schizophrenia and fatigued by modern life drudgery and routines of survival. As an early retirement gift, Anne buys Myron-a historical mansion she plans to renovate as she continues her healing journey. Notices of a missing, local girl arrive soon after and Anne finds herself visited by police officers, roped into investigations and targeted by those claiming to still serve the Myron family. Will Anne be able to determine reality from fiction and figure out who is threatening her life? Or will Myron be taken away and Anne’s life with it? Memory Bound is a multi-dimensional, horror novel mixed with just the right amount of mystery to keep readers long entranced and wondering after the final, closing paragraph.

Indie Author Updates: I Give You Poe (You’re Welcome)

In America, we’re in a government shutdown–the longest we’ve experienced in our young nation’s history. With paychecks halted, FBI workers are lining up next to White House employees to get food distributions at Food Banks. Somebody pinch me. Surely this is fake news, right? No, you insist, it’s not? Well then. Double irony for $600, Alex, and pass the potatoes. This sure is a surreal way to bring in 2019. And sad.
