Hey there,

I just got offered my first paid reading job... :9:

It's The Crider Chronicles by Anderson Gentry - Hard SF... :shock:

Anyone know where on the 'Net I can find a plot description (a la Cliff's Notes) and character descriptions? Yes, I'll be reading the book, but, left to my own non-audiobook devices, I'm a painfully slow reader. I scoured the 'net and no luck. If anyone can help, thanks.

Of course, although I won't return Steven's calls until he talks to his buddy to get me a guest shot on his buddy's show (I can play a dying person...) :mrgreen:

Hey Shurt,

Well, it was thanks to LV. Simon posted a call here for readers for a professional project and I emailed him, sent an audition recording, one thing led to another and now I have a contract for a book and a couple of short stories. At first I thought nothing would come of it, but I was astonished and pleased at the result.
