Santa in a Red Dress - Live!

ECW Press recorded the readings at their Lit Party a couple of weeks ago and here's me reading the short story, Santa in a Red Dress that's in the December issue of Driven Magazine.



I've done a few of these readings the last few years so you'd think I'd be getting better at it, but no. Still just stare at the page and read.

The other ECW authors who read were really good and you can see them all here:

I read this story when you posted the link last week, and listened to it again today. There's definitely a different feel when it's heard with a Canadian accent. I'd strongly consider getting a Canadian actor to read any audio books you put out; the rhythms of your writing swing better that way.

Fantastic stuff. Thanks for posting. More please.

You did a good job, I thought. It's a very good story and I think you did really well. I'm sure a lesser wrier/ reader would have hammed it up!

Good story. And read in a clean, crisp voice.

Oh, and merry Christmas (merrier than Dave's, at any rate)

Excellent reading there Mr McF.

I too like the accent. I find Canadian reassuring in that way a soft Edinburgh can be. All doctors should either be Canadian or Scottish.

And of course I loved the story.
