I'm just putting the finishing touches on a novella that I wrote a few months back. I originally sent it off to see if there was any interest from magazines and the like, but no such luck. Unfortunately, I think it's a little long for a magazine and a little short for a book publisher, so I'm kinda stuck. So, instead of shelving it, I thought why not put it out there. Self publish. It's a growing thing, and it's easy enough to do, so why not me?
All that to say it's not ready yet.
But I've been doing something that I haven't done with any of my other work, namely reading it out loud as a final editing pass. Since I was sitting there and reading it, I figured why not turn on a microphone? I'm no voice actor, and I don't claim to have a great voice for reading, and there are errors. Also, it's definitely not a high quality product, but I thought it might be a fun glimpse behind the scenes into what I'm doing.
So here it is, the first chapter of my novella that I hope will be available soon. It's short, just shy of four minutes in length, so give it a listen if you have a moment and let me know what you think. Please forgive the audio quality and my poor narration.
If you're interested in knowing when the novella comes out, you can sign up for my email list and I'll send you a FREE COPY when it's available. If you're already on the email list, you don't have to do anything. I'll probably also be posting more excepts here (non-audio excerpts), so you can look forward to that as well!
