It’s been a long time since I did any sort of performance. You may remember a few years back I did some work with Carol Leeming? And then I did some reading at a convention at The Phoenix (Gosh, that was so long ago, I was pregnant at the time!). Well Saturday was my latest performance.
Adele Wearing of Fox Spirit arranged a lovely little gathering in a café not far from all my favourite haunts. An hour of readings from six local authors. Well…
I had a lovely time and got to read a little edited snippet of ‘Silk Over Razor Blades.’ I even got myself all organised and bought some pretty shinies before hand including posters of the cover art. ^_^
So I’m sorry that those people attending have been able to see the cover before you guys, but you will soon. Pinkie swear.
I wasn’t quite organised enough to get the names of everybody performed, but there were others from my critique including Wayne Kelly (DSB‘s partner in crime over at the Joined Up Writing Podcast) and Maya Chowdhury (also writing for Fab Fables). There were some lovely readings too, including a reading from the ghost story anthology that Boo Book produced last year. Do you recall the one I wasn’t quite successful in joining?
Best part is, there were recordings too, meaning that I should be able to post a video of the reading reasonably soon. Watch this space: I’m slowly gathering more and more media like that and looking forward to getting it up where you can see it.
How was your weekend? As fun filled and exciting as mine, I hope? 🙂
