I've been narrating stories for awhile now and I love it. Fills the theatre void. (Well, except my microphone doesn't applaud and throw carnations, alas.)
Looking for a place to start? Although I enjoy all the stories I've read (I wouldn't record them else), some of my favorites where I think the story and I really hit it off are The Mermaids' Tea Party by Samantha Henderson (NOT for the faint of heart, but I love it), The Small Door, by Holly Phillips, Boyfriend by Madeleine Ashby, or The Rugged Track, by Liz Argall. I've also received good feedback about The Duke of Vertumn's Fingerling, by Elizabeth Carroll.
Toasted CakeI have a flash fiction podcast! It's called Toasted Cake, and it won the 2012 Parsec award for Best New Podcaster! Check out Toasted Cake for stories by Camille Alexa, C. S. E.
