Yesterday was such an exciting day!! You see, a couple of weeks ago Kim Knight, my co-author for the short story suspenseful Anthology – a two piece set with multiple short stories across the genre board – and I were lucky enough to be guests on such an amazing Podcast show. The amazing FICTION ADDICTION by Creedom LLC, really dug deep with the questions, asking heartfelt and resonating things for our readers, as well as advice-full questions for fellow authors to learn from. Yesterday the episode went live!!
So, let me just say, I’m one of those weirdos who absolutely loathe the sound of my voice on a recording. Seriously though, I sound even younger than I look, which lets face it isn’t exactly my actual age. I should be glad about it, I guess, but hearing the sound of my own voice just isn’t something that usually inspires self-confidence… That said, after listening to the audio last night I laid in bed and thought to myself, “holy shit, Didi, who are you?!”
I sounded confident, and wise, and my voice wasn’t so bad at all, it was actually somewhat lovely. Not as lovely as Kim’s, not by a long shot, she sounds absolutely stunning, as usual! I’ve never been one to listen to many podcasts, but I think it’s safe to say that I’ve quickly become a fan, and will be tuning in to Fiction Addiction often!

Also, if the sounds of Kim and I’s new release rings your fancy, then give it a look:
