"My Calliope" - An Original Short Story

A new, original short story based on a wee visitor who came whizzing into my office a few evenings ago.  Yes, yes ... I have replaced the window screen.  It was a great opportunity to wash the windows.

FForward to 5:45 to skip the embarassingly "ummm" filled event introduction (I REALLY must script that!) and get right to the story. Remember: It was Live!

GREAT NEWS! More Books!

I have been working with author Rae Lori in the virtual world for a couple of years now, and we have spoken of doing an audio book of one of her novels that I have done a lot: A Kiss of Ashen Twilight.  Today, we finally talked about it in concrete terms, and it seems the time is right for us to make this shared dream become a reality! 

We will also be doing several short stories of hers, and I will have the links posted here as soon as they are ready for public consumption.  Rae does a very wide selection of work, much in the fantasy genre.  CLICK HERE to learn more about Rae's work at her website.

A Kiss of Ashen Twilight is part of a series by the same name that explores a world of immortal beings walking among us: Vampires, Lycans, and Shifter-Elves.  The adventures include events happening in current times, and flash-backs to centuries-old experiences of these individuals, as we begin to understand the relevent events in their long lives that are coming to fruition now, in the present.

We did some sample tracks last summer, when we first explored this idea.  CLICK HERE to listen to this selection from the Prologue of A Kiss of Ashen Twilight.

BEGGAR'S DAY - Part 1 on YOU Tube!

Good Friend MJ McGalliard e-published his first novel Beggar's Day in November.  You know how it is when a friend writes a book? ..."Oh wow!  That's great ..."  Then I read it!  What delightful fun!

MJ agreed to let me read Beggar's Day in the virtual world, and we even made an avatar so he could come in and hear it himself!  With his permission, we have recorded it and posted it on the Seanchai Library's YOU Tube Channel.  It is a live performance, so as a piece of video or a strictly audio track, it has many imperfections.  You'll hear me laugh, react to things and even greet people arriving ... things that you cannot see on the screen.  That's the joy of live performance!

CLICK HERE to go to the Seanchai Library's YOU Tube page and listen in!
