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!

Peregrine Arc: Author YouTube Channel (In Progress)

My camera came today for my forthcoming YouTube channel. The UPS truck backed into our driveway and gave a friendly “Toot! Toot!” on his horn. It was getting darker outside and thundering in the distance when the saint went to sign for the box. I couldn’t help but think of the oft’ used phrase, “It was a dark and stormy night…” What a nice start to a horror author’s YouTube adventure, I thought to myself, amused…

Some project ideas. Spoopy, eh?

Some general information on the channel thus far:

  • I’ll be staying off camera mostly and will probably be using subtitles with background music. I’m sure the style will evolve as I learn and become more comfortable, but this is my foundation so far.
  • I’ll be doing arts and crafts projects, discussing literature, the horror genre and writing as a whole. I’ll be talking about my own writing, too, of course.
  • One of my goals is to film a book trailer for Memory Bound. This will definitely be a bigger project that will take some time, but I’m looking forward to the process. Hopefully we don’t scare the neighbors too much…

I hope you’ll join us on this adventure. I’m going to start filming tomorrow to test out some ideas and get used to the software I’ll be using. It’s definitely a big step for me, but it’s a dream I’ve had for a long, long time. 😊

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.

Author: SBSK Young Man w/Schizophrenia & Autism Interview

Schizophrenia is an illness I’ve always had interest in studying and deep sympathy for those who have it. My main character in my book, Memory Bound, has it as well.

Special Books Special Kids (SBSK) just posted this video and I wanted to share it. Let’s all try to support, care for and understand each other a little more in 2020.

Thanks for watching.

Blogmas Day 23: “The 12 Pains of Christmas”🎶

Oh, humor. What would we do without you?

The Peregrine household will be listening to this song while we wrap presents tonight. I’m a terrible wrapper, while the saint could wrap a melting igloo perfectly. Enjoy!

Exercise Challenges

Author: October Cycling Challenge– YouTube Cartoonist (Day 15/31)🚴‍♀️

Feeling a bit stuffy headed today so I did 37 minutes while watching YouTube. There are a series of videos  from BuzzFeed I love–Cartoonists vs. Animators. Kevin and Jackie are my favorites, but they all seem like really nice, fun people. I included one of the videos below. Check it out!

Join us tomorrow for Day 16. Vroom, Vroom!

I love dorky, independently made videos like these.

Thoughts & Reviews

Author: SBSK Video Share (Erica’s Inspirational Story)

The longer I live, the more appreciative I am of the Encouragers. Encouragers are the ones who give off genuine light, positivity and leave judgment at the door.

Erica’s story and words of encouragement are below. Around the 7:44 marker, I feel like these words could apply to writing a novel, as she explains how she felt after completing  a marathon.

Keep going, Arcians. Stay the course.

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: “Away with You, Mortal” (YT Humor Share)

I’ve been dealing with a particular breed of salespeople lately–Class D: Door to Door Solicitors. In America, they waltz right up to your door, knock loudly and ring doorbells. Their actions promptly wake up sleeping babies as they ignore posted warning signs and they release the hounds of doom to begin barking. They sell everything from politics, religion (I say this as a Christian) to tree cutting services. I understand people need to work, and we treat them with decency and polite firmness, but I don’t find this practice a good business model or even very polite.

The Saint and I recently bought two new No Solicitors signs from Etsy, as our old sign broke. We are putting these up in hopes to deter stealthy agents of capitalism. I’m also considering a moat with alligators and some zombie signs.

One day, though, I may just enact the following plan, as enacted in the beautiful video below. Who’s with me?
