Gettin’ lazy ’round Christmas time….

It’s been a strange holiday season for everyone. I’m not complaining, just stating a fact. Okay, call it an excuse. We’re going to spend a wee bit more time with friends and family, either live or via the Internet, but either way, we’re going to bathe in the Christmas spirit, at least as much as possible. So, with that, I’ll leave you with good tidings for the coming year. It couldn’t possibly be worse than the last one.

I’m also going to repost the audio from last week in case you missed it. Here’s the graphic that accompanied the story when I first posted it last year. When I finally get around to publishing the audio version, I suspect this bit of artwork will make up most of the cover.

I’m also going to revert to the original title, “The Crone and the Crown.”

As I’m still trying to get a handle on this whole narration thing, I’d love to hear what you think of this first effort.

Happy New Year!

    Title is very good. Will project be an audio book only?

    This was my test effort. I’ll start on my novels this week. Happy New Year!


    Great story; thank you for a special Christmas gift to all of us. Your voice and pace are just right for ancient tales. Keep it up, Erika

    I enjoyed the narration and story both. As this was my first time to have a story read itself to me, it took a paragraph or six for me to adapt to a minstrel’s voice in the background. A voice that queued me when to laugh, to narrow my eyes in the presence of evil. Eventually, taught me to lean back and let the minstrel do the heavy lifting. My wordy way of saying I thought you did good.

      Thanks, Barry. This makes me wonder if I’ve introduced something new to occupy your time. [grin] I know it took a chunk of your time, and I’m pleased you were able to enjoy it. Happy New Year!
