Not too long ago, I did a reading of my YA high fantasy novella Tell Me My Name, and despite being totally terrified, I actually had a lot of fun. So I decided to recreate the reading for YouTube... Check it out!
I can't count the number of takes it took to get through that little 2-3 minute segment without tripping over my words. It's still not perfect, but at least there's no st-st-stuttering. And because I could, I popped in a little background music (a bit from A Thousand Faces, which I composed back in 2009). The melody from that song actually has lyrics, which play a role in Windborn, the first full-length novel in the Fated Stars series (coming 2016 from Glass House Press).
