Some YouTube Goodness
I have not one but two videos to share with you. One is a recording of a podcast I participated in, while the second is an audio short story based on chapter 9 of The Eagle's Flight.
The Fantasy Fiends discuss topics related to fantasy literature along with a guest author each week. My proposed topic was cultural diversity outside of medieval Europe, which I will also be making a blog post about. I also demonstrate how to wield a scimitar on horseback for maximum killing effect, we do a live reading of an excerpt from The Eagle's Flight, and I teach them some facts about Denmark.
Chris Herron from Tall Tale TV makes audio short stories out of texts sent to him by authors like me. While I do have a number of short stories, I felt that chapter 9, The Long Watch, from my book works quite well as a story on its own. Chris agreed and used his talents to turn it into a short audio story. I encourage you to check out his site and his story for doing audio stories, which is quite amazing.
I hope you enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you thought of the discussion with the Fantasy Fiends! And if you liked Chris' work, rest assured that I will asking him to do more short stories once I have more material.
