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.

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.

Hear ye, hear ye. 📯Today marks Day 31 of 31 of the October cycling and writing challenge. To finish the challenge, I visited the hills around the Matterhorn and killed, nay, slayed the hills. I declare this challenge a success. 🥳

Exercise Challenges

Author: October Cycling Challenge– Chamonix, France (Day 30/31)🚴‍♀️

Interval training equals happy training. Controlled pedaling, RPMs, RPE, cadence and all that lingo I’m still learning. 📝

Tomorrow’s the last day. I have ideas for November. But here’s a question for you writers: Apple or PC? Seriously now, I don’t want to see a fruit salad fight, but some honest, polite opinions.

See you tomorrow for Day 31, the last day of the biking challenge. Cheers.

Exercise Challenges

Author: October Cycling Challenge–YouTube Rest (Day 29/31)🎬

Today I did 30 minutes watching YouTube, at my own pace. The more I bike, the easier it gets and the faster the time goes. It’s nice to feel the progress I’ve made.

Just two more days of the challenge. See you here tomorrow for Day 30. We’ll end with a bang on Halloween. 🥳🎃

Cheers!

Two main thoughts crossed my mind in today’s workout: 1.) We’re going to die and 2.) My iFit trainer is a very positive person. Several times we had to lift our bikes and walk (I watched and still pedaled from home, of course) while we navigated rock and slate on the paths. Instead of being angry or frustrated, my trainer complimented the terrain and how helpful it was on training us. How cool is that?

I’m taking that perspective with me. Even if I would’ve fallen off the mountain today, it would’ve been a good conversation starter with St. Peter. Along with the glacier we saw. Chamonix is a little piece of heaven.

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

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.
