FwF 29 – #Christmas Calamities, Part 1: The Lost Helper

Happy Holidays, Fictioneers!

I start off this episode with a shout-out to some awesome author friends of mine who have been doing dynamite work recently: children’s author (and my illustrator for Hello, Halloween) Donovan Scherer; award-winning horror author Matthew Harrill; and hilarious master parodist Paul Erickson.  Pick up their books for your loved ones this Christmas!

      

Now, on to the meat of the show, where I read you the first story from my book Christmas Calamities.  ‘The Lost Helper’ tells the tale of a poor elf left behind in a family fireplace on Christmas Eve.  Things only get worse when the household children discover him.  Will he be able to get back to Santa in time?

Listen in to find out! 

And while you’re at it, pick up the book!  ‘The Lost Helper’ is only one of several fun holiday yarns therein.  It’s inexpensive, easily transportable, and makes a great stocking stuffer.  Enjoy!

 

Comedy Drama Special Edition: The Eyeteeth Podcast does Greek Mythology

Hello Fictioneers!

In this special edition of the Fun with Fiction blog, I, Luke J. Morris, am giving you an episode of my other podcast: Mo Simpson‘s Eyeteeth Podcast, which I co-host.  We don’t always talk fiction over there, but when we do – well, we don’t bother talking about it.  We make like Nike and just f*ing DO IT.

If you like your fiction in the form of a multi-cast dramatic reading – be that plays, movies, TV, or audiodramas – you will love this.

Unless you hate comedy and Greek mythology.  Then you won’t.

This is one of our most popular Eyeteeth episodes ever – for reasons that have we may never understand.  Suffice it to say, it’s me, Mo, and Eily Hallagan, giving a full-character reading of a segment of The Greek Mythology Olympiaganza by Don Zolidis.

 The three of us voice all of your favorite characters, including:

  • Cronos and Zeus (Mo)
  • Rhea and Pandora (Eily)
  • Uranus (ha!) and Prometheus (… yours truly)
  • Two narrators (Eily and I)
  • … and many more!

Give ‘er a listen!  You won’t be dissappointed, I guarantee.

Once you’ve done that, go ahead and subscribe to the Eyeteeth Podcast on iTunes or on another feed reader.

To support our continuing podcasting efforts, please pick up Mo’s & my books Cthulhu 4 Kids and Tales from the Teeth.  You’ll love ’em!

And don’t forget to subscribe to the Fun with Fiction podcast, as well.  😉

Thanks to all you listeners and fellow fiction fans!  Please hit me up on Twitter, on Facebook, or send me an email to keep in touch.

Peace,

– Luke
