Painting Jack | Author YouTube

Just some short and sweet, spoopy painting on good ol’ Jack. I am still learning how to film and edit, but I think I see progress. Where, you ask? Just ask Jack. He was there.

I love Jack-O-Lanterns. I should put a pumpkin in my next book. How’s your current work in progress? Let us know in the comments below. Enjoy everyone.

Author YouTube: Reading Excerpt from Memory Bound

I wombled up to bat today and took a swing at reading a few pages of my book, Memory Bound. This short excerpt is taken from the beginning of the prologue on pages 1-2. Memory Bound is a horror book and can be found on Amazon in both hard copy (soft cover) and as an e-book. Or you can request your local library to order a copy for you to read and to add to their circulation.

Author YouTube: “Bring Me Back My Rose” (Horror | Humor)

Fiddled around some more with my new camera and editing software today. The steamworks on YouTube is slowly getting up and running. I also discovered how to do subtitles. Let the snarky humor commence…

Author YouTube: “Painting Jacks” (Practice Video Posted)

With these poison ivied hands, I filmed and posted my first video on my Author YouTube page. It’s definitely a practice video–I was getting used to my camera, a new video editing software I’m trying out and the process of uploading to YouTube. I know I’ll probably chuckle at this video in a few years, but in good humor.

The videos will vary and either have subtitles or me (possibly) talking in the future. For this round, I just have some music playing. Enjoy and happy writing. Ker-kaw!

Introductory

Updates on the Journey

Hello and welcome to Peregrine Arc, a Horror Author’s Scratchwork. I published my first novel, Memory Bound, in October 2018. I’m currently working on my second horror novel, GOTD.* Both books feature female protagonists struggling to survive in worlds where uninvited guests come just a bit too close for comfort…

I’m also starting an Author YouTube Channel. Here you’ll find me talking about my writing, literature, and dabbling in some arts & crafts. This page is in development, but I’ll be sure to post updates here when I get the steamworks up and running. Won’t you join us?

All opinions, mistakes and spiderwebs are my own here. Pass the ink blotter, would you? And do watch your step over the landing. Last chap didn’t quite make it out, poor thing…

*I only give my novels’ names in acronyms, until they’re published. Memory Bound, for example, was MB.

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: Peregrine’s Arc Hits 300 Followers, Book Sale & New Book Update🦉

A big thank you to everyone who has followed my blog. I’ve been noticing the blog growing over the past few weeks and wanted to make sure to stop and thank my new followers. Welcome! 😊

If anyone needs a book to read during the pandemic, please check out my book at Amazon. In celebration of the blog’s growth (and because money can be a little tight for some people right now), my book is on sale for $9 hard copy and $3.99 for ebook.* If you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s free. If you want to read it but can’t order right now, ask an obliging librarian to order a copy for you when you’re allowed to return to the library. It’s the wonderful magic of public libraries and they can add it to their circulation. 😊

Book update: GOTD** is coming along…better. I’ve had a harder time getting to know my protagonist with this book. She’s a bit shy, but her name is Blaire and she’s much younger than Memory Bound’s protagonist. She has a quiet voice, but I think I’m listening better. That’s what we writers do, right? We listen to the story already being told. Or something like that.

GOTD is another horror novel, but good horror. Good horror, as I’ve written about on this blog, is hard to find. It’s an art to scare people, to reveal true monsters instead of falling back on cheap scares, grungy writing or stale entertainment tactics. I learned a lot from writing Memory Bound. I’m taking my time writing GOTD, but hope to have my first draft written by the end of summer. The saint is gently holding me to this deadline. How is your writing going?

Cheers, everyone. And happy writing. Ker-kaw! ✏️

*I just adjusted the prices on Amazon and it can take up to 72 hours to show up. If the prices look higher than what I listed above, try coming back later once Amazon approves my changes. 😊👍

**I give out my book titles in acronyms before they’re published. MB was Memory Bound.
