Morven Podcasts

I’ve done a number of public readings of my vampire novels Darksome Thirst and The Old Power Returns. I always try to record my own reading so I can listen to it later to see what I need to improve upon. I always hoped I could get one good "take" to put on my web, just for fun, and because people often ask me if the reading is available online.

This past weekend I decided it would probably be quicker and better to just re-record one of them. Sadly, you don't get the audience reaction with an in-home reading, but you do get a cleaner recording.

I've put the first reading up as a podcast on

I'm going to record some other ones at home, but will also try to get some decent live recordings to put up there, too. It's really fun to hear audience reaction, especially when I read some of the sections that involve the character named Frederick.

This first one is short, just under 10 minutes. What have you got to lose? Check it out ;-)
