My reading Last Night

What a blast that was. It was basically open mic with some really talented poets (I was the only one who wasn't). There was a huge crowd for the little venue and they were very welcoming.
I read an excerpt from my second story, "Lightning-The Jilted Wife". There was good reaction to it which was great. I didn't read for the full alloted 10mins which was too bad. I was completely unprepared and when your public speaking time seems to fly by! I had lost of great comments afterwards and was able to sell one book, but more importantly I got myself out there a little more.
The night ended with poetry and song from the most wonderful poet I have ever heard (not that I'm all that versed in such things), Moe Clark. She had a great poem about the Pine Beetle destruction in BC as well as another one about bringing out your inner child and a few others. It wasn't just spoken word but singing and she had an amazing voice backed up by a loop peddle which you basically record sounds into and they loop over and over again.
All in all it was a great night and I look forward to the next one.
Here is the official website of the event:
