Ethandune Read-Aloud

I was asked some snippet sections ago to make an audio recording of a read-aloud for one of my works in progress.  It has taken me so long to get around to this because I was getting ready to come to Glasgow, I was having trouble deciding on a good section to read aloud, and I am extremely shy of my voice.  However, I have finally done it.
From Ethandune.

I just avoided recording this with an illness.  I am not sure what it is I am fighting.  It feels like the sickly bantling child of an ill-moral'd cold: the Mordred of influenzas.  It does not seem to be amounting to much at present, but it has sufficed to make me sluggish and surly and has effectively slowed Ethandune's progress for today.
I fear I will live, but not for long, to regret that allusion to medieval literature.

5 ripostes:

  1. Oh, this is good! Well-worth the wait by any means. :)
    I hope you feel better soon. I would suggest a nap, but I'm sure you've already thought of that and/or someone has already suggested it. Naps are just universally good, you know?

  2. This was so much fun! ^.^ I feel given a huge gift by the sheer weight of this much of a taste of Ethandune. I mean honestly. It's the longest bit of any one of your unpublished stories I've actually read. Love love LOVE it. Now I'm off for a walk in this brilliant weather. Wish me a collision with my own Goddgofang and witty repartee thereafter. ;)

  3. Omgosh, This was amazing! Thanks for doing it :D it's wonderful to hear a story being read to you; there's something magical about doing it the way people used to for years in the old days. And you have a wonderful voice, it's great to hear the author bring her characters to life by spoken word :)

  4. OMYWORD :), this was jolly fun!! At first I was all struggling to enjoy (understand) your honeyed southern accent, but once I got used to the swing of your tone, it was soooooooooooooooooooo much fun, and so interesting. I love the taste and feel of Ethandune. Oh, boy, yes I do! Jennelaide is SUCH a character, and I Goddgofang - he's charming.

    Who is the narrator though? It isn't you!

  5. Ooh, I do hope you feel better soon!! :D take good care of yourself, dear <3
