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.

Novel Snippet: A Paragraph Reveal & Other Exciting Updates

Thank you for fifty subscribers! As a warm thank you to everyone, I’ve included a small paragraph snippet of my upcoming novel–M.B. I will be doing both a title reveal and a cover art reveal in the near future. My goal is to finish the edits this week, before Labor Day vacation ensues here in America. Please light a candle for me.

Some other quick updates. I will soon be launching my YouTube Channel–Peregrine Arc. I am putting together my writing office which will also serve as my recording studio area. I’m gathering up artwork that will be shown on the back wall of my filming area that’ll help create my writing nest and also add visual appeal. The Saint is helping me design this and put this together.

This week I’m also meeting with a business adviser to put together my own LLC and help with the business side of administering Peregrine Arc–my official writing platform and also the name of this website. I took a business class last weekend to get primed for this counseling session. Ready, set–let’s go.

Thank you to everyone who’s joined Peregrine Arc along the way and has been patient as I finished M.B. It’s been quite a learning process getting the foundation of indie writing down but I’m getting there. The blog is growing at a steady pace and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading another person’s thoughts.

And without further ado, here is a selected paragraph from the prologue for your reading pleasure. Please remember to like and subscribe if you’d like to continue on this merry ride with me. Happy writing!
