Hi, I’m Mary Suzanne. Today, I want to talk about the opportunity Sascha, a fellow writer on our group, is giving the Midnight Seduction Author’s. Anyone that wants to will have the chance to read excerpts on his radio station: Radio Dentata.
I’ve read some of the reactions on our MSA site about reading a post aloud. One author said she sounded like she was channeling Kathleen Turner’s deep husky voice after five hundred packs of cloves cigarettes. A couple of others said they had rich southern accents. One worried about no one understanding her. Another said her students told her she read too fast. She thought she sounded like Mickey Mouse. I’m not even going to venture an opinion about how I sound. I plugged in the mike and read two excerpts, but I have to admit, this isn’t as easy as it sounds. Sometimes a word just stumbles right into the next one. Here’s hoping I get it right before it’s time to send in our CD. LOL
No matter how we sound, this will be another opportunity to make more of a connection to each other. E-mails are so emotionless. Hearing a person’s voice will make them more human. I listened to Sascha’s broadcast and felt as if he was real and not some typed words on a sheet.
I’m ending this blog with one thought. I’m looking forward to January and hearing all you guys out there doing your thing.
