let me read to you, let me give you a book

Dear readers, I have an extract of Untamed for you! I’m reading it aloud, and let’s just say I realise I’ll never be head-hunted as a voice actor. However, it is one of my favourite parts of the whole book: the scene where Kit and Darlington first meet, and are both surprised out of themselves by the strength of their connection.

Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of Untamed - I’ll be giving one away to a random commenter.

ETA: I’ll be drawing the winner Wednesday 9pm Aussie EST!

ETA: Using the trusty name-in-a-hat method I have picked Anna as the winner of a copy of Untamed. Thanks everyone for your comments!

    Hi Anna!
    Thanks for the reading – it was extremely moreish…
    I really felt their bewilderment at the unstoppable connection.
    (and I loved “her heart bloodied itself”…)
    I would absolutely love to win a copy of ‘Untamed’ :-)

    Cheers,
    Anna.

      Hi Anna! (heh, that’s fun)

      I’m glad you liked the reading. It’s funny to listen to – like making tapes as a kid! (And I fought to keep “bloodied” in the manuscript. I really like that line as well.)

    I’ve never had the opportunity to listen to an author read an excerpt of her book before! It was very lovely, thank you Anna.

    I’d love to win a copy of the book, but after your reading I am going to acquire a copy for myself regardless.

      Thanks Liz! I’m really glad you enjoyed the reading :-) . It was fun reading that scene aloud, because I had heard it in my head so many times as I revised and rewrote and edited it.
