Every time I hear an author read an excerpt from their own work I glean something new from the story, whether it’s the proper way to pronounce a character name to the true desired impact from an inflection. I pick up story nuances that I missed the first time around.
I love it even more when I hear a book read by its author that hasn’t released yet or that I haven’t read yet. Nine times out of ten I end up buying the book on the spot, either the physical copy so I can get it signed or the e-book so I can get to reading right away. Sometimes both.
I am excited to announce that at this year’s UTOPiAcon, we have a READING ROOM where some of your favorite authors will be reading from recent or soon-to-be-released works!
