Wanda Warmheart is out and about today practicing her King's English.
Wanda Warmheart's Witchy Ways, Avast my heart, Hardboiled and Alien in my tea are the titles of four of my flash fiction pieces enjoying an opportunity to be read in authentic English accents this month. From October 2-10th a group of dedicated individuals headed up by Damien G. Walter will be whipping up enthusiasm for the pleasure of reading by gathering people together in and around Leicester, England at a myriad of events to celebrate the written word.
A literacy event called Everybody's Reading kicked off this weekend with author Bali Rai reading a story at half time to twenty thousand people at the Leicester vs. Scunthorpe football match.
Thanks to my lovely friend Hagelrat, an avid reader and a highly respected book reviewer, three of my pieces were featured at Un:Bound on Saturday and the fourth was featured yesterday at the main site of Everybody's Reading.
My hope is that I'll get to see film of somebody reading Wanda Warmheart's Witchy Ways to a bunch of school age kids in a cool English accent. It doesn't have to be anybody famous…..but hey wouldn't it be cool if Neil Gaiman turned up?
