Going Public… In Shorts with Cris Dukehart + Mark Twain + Contest!


Oh My Goodness! Oh My Goodness! Did you know June is Audio Book Month? *nods* yep 😀


I am beyond thrilled to be a stop for the Going Public… In Shorts project. (the love child of XE Sands and Spoken Freely and may I say what a beautiful, bouncing bundle of joy it is 😉 )


All June Going Public… In Shorts participating narrators are giving us gifts! Lovingly recorded works of public domain or shared via creative commons are being released into the world wide web and free to enjoy for the week of their birth (hmmm running out of new baby comparisons! ) The recordings are also available for purchase via Blackstone Audio and Downpour with the proceeds benefiting children’s literacy.


The Book Tart was matched with Cris Dukehart! *Kermit Flail* She rocks the Casbah and we had a pajama party Google Giggle Hangout *points down somewhere in post* to chat about voice work, sweat, love letters and naked pictures. Ha! See? She’s awesome and the narrators of today’s release.




Eve’s Diary by Mark Twain. Listen!  *points down again* Enjoy! Then consider making a purchase and keeping it for future enjoyment and to help out a great cause!

I am so excited! I got to chat with Cassie Alexander! *Squee!* She’s darling and we chat books, Edie, night shifts, madlibs, gingerbread men and cupcakes and Rhianna’s song Stay among lotsa fun randomness. I’m sorry for my echo! *head/desk* I’m away from home and in a different space. Gahhh! Tried to fix but not technologically savvy enough to minimize it. I hope you enjoy the silly and ignore the echo. 😉
