Audio Excerpts from Scratching in the Dirt
by S M HENLEY
Okay, I’ll fess up. I was bored. Writing not going too well. Mountains of housework to do and the dog complaining he hadn’t had a walk in 24 hours. So this is when the thought hit me: why not record some short sections of Scratching for you good people?
The next hour was spent searching for that Snowball microphone I bought 3 years ago when I was going to start that podcast. You know the one. The one that never got started…
After an hour, I gave up and resorted to my phone.
So here they are, scratchy, spontaneous, and complete with dog noisily lapping water in the background.
Disclaimer: I am not an actress, voice-over artist, or public speaker. I am me. Complete with English/Canadian accent, squeaky voice that sounds like a 12 year old, stumbling over words often. But if you can stand it, it’ll give you a taste of the novel and maybe just persuade some of you to give it a chance 🙂
PS. One day I’ll get a proper audio version made. Or else, I’ll teach the dog to read and he can do it.
