Author readings on YouTube

I’ve been thinking about this for years now, but I’ve finally taken my weight off my thinker and started doing it. Today I posted the first in what I intend to be a recurring series of videos: Fun readings from my books, delivered in unusual ways. I don’t know what that means, exactly, but it struck me as an interesting thing to try.

To start things off, I’m keeping it safe. This is a pan-and-zoom “animation” of my children’s picture book, narrated by the cheapest narrator I could find. (I didn’t even buy myself coffee!) But the star of the show has to be the gorgeous artwork by Cody Cheung.

So if you’re looking for YouTube content to keep your little ones entertained—or if you just have a thing for middle-aged men reading preschool stories—then this one is guaranteed to fit the bill.
