(no subject)

Stuck at home and came across something to share. The most awesome gamer geek power tool ever. I am not a big fan of all the tech that ends up in table top games right now, that said I love this application. Not that I could afford the 10000 dollars a Surface costs but still it is pretty cool.

my story being read live

Wed. Oct. 21st at 9:30 pm eastern on stickam a story I wrote will be read live in a video stream.   It will be read by a friend and fellow podcaster, P.G. Holyfield.

So funny story.

I met PG at Dragoncon a few years back.   A bunch of podcasters were sitting around waiting for the next panel to start.  We did what podcasters do and exchanged business cards and the like advertising out podcasts. It is almost ritual like.  Anyway he reaches into his bag and hands me this cd.  On the CD is the first few chapters of the podiobook called Muder at Avedon Hill. It is this fantasy tale that starts with a murder in a lords manor.  Our heroes are a monk and his apprentice.  Both of course are more than they seem to the people around them.   It took a couple years to end but when it did this story went from murder mystery to a tale of gods at work.

After the podcast ended there was much rejoicing.   PG got a book deal with Dragon Moon press.   To celebrate he asked for some folks to submit stories set in the same world.  The anthology is called Tales of The Children.  Each story of the anthology is about the actions of the gods of this world, gods called The Children of Az.    I submitted a story which is a sort of folk tale. PG enjoyed it and said he would be glad to run it.

So if your interested please go ahead go to http://stickam.com/pgholyfield and watch the reading live tomorrow at 9:30 pm. Hopefully you will enjoy the story.   I certainly had fun writing it.
