Monday night saw my first reading event, at the monthly meeting of BristolCon fringe. A friend of mine – Pete Sutton – a fast-rising name of the Bristol writing scene was my only prior contact and I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
I was told that I’d have a twenty-thirty minute slot where I’d be able to read out a piece of work. I chose the opening chapter of Tiberius Found.
The other guest speaker was local writer Ken Shinn and I’m glad that I went first. His comedy-horror short which featured a demon Benny Hill was very, very good and a hard act to follow.
The chapter seemed to be well received and was recorded for future podcast. A Q&A followed, which was also recorded and I think it all went well. Not as scary as I thought it might be.
Hopefully, it will the fist of many such events.
