A Chat with Narrator Xe Sands in Honor of June Is Audiobook Month

June is Audiobook Month (JIAM) and on Friday, June 28th, 2013 I sat down (virtually) with audiobook narrator Xe Sands to talk about her role in the "Going Public... in Shorts!" project, the short story she recorded for it ("The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman), the dynamics between audiobook reviewer and narrator, and to answer a host of other questions sent in by readers.

"Drowning" - Flash Fiction written by NYgirlLovesCA

A #GoingPublic offering This story, written by NYgirlLovesCA, is originally from the flash fiction website sixminutestory.com and can be found here: http://sixminutestory.com/stories/drowning--2 in its original format. Shared via Creative Commons: Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Although "narrator" isn't a profession I aspire to, the #GoingPublic project has always seemed to me to be about finding those pieces of art in the public domain that speak to you and giving them renewed voice. This particular bit of flash fiction by NYgirlLovesCA grabbed me and didn't want to let go so I decided to lend it my voice. Thanks to Xe Sands for both the #GoingPublic meme and for bringing 6' Story to my attention.
