Chris and I had the privilege of attending an event in Dallas named “Naked Girls Reading: Pulp Fiction.”
We attended because, well, they read two of our short stories (Devil Does Dallas and A Shot in the Dark).
I remember seeing one of my author’s read for the first time to a group of people. My heart welled with pride. I also remember watching one of my author’s read to a crowded bar. My heart welled with pride that time, as well.
As I think back on Sautrday night, my heart welled up with something else, something completely different, as I watched two gorgeous women reading from my books. It was one part pride, one part respect, one part something akin to lust, but not really.
They only read excerpts of course, but the amount of laughter, audible cringing, and surprise that was heard in the audience was completely worthwhile and WONDERFUL.
Thank you, Naked Girls Reading! And, particularly, thank you Black Mariah for getting us turned on to this event and helping us out!
