Morrison’s Pillow – A Short Story – Part 1 of 3

October 19, 2009

Greetings!  I’ve spent the past two weeks writing the following story for Halloween.  When I first outlined this idea I was sure that the story would only be about five pages tops.  Since I ended up just shy of 50 pages, I’ll be sharing Morrison’s Pillow with you in three parts, read aloud by yours truly, Jade Leone Blackwater.

This story is rated “OK” for all ages with a note to the strange, spooky, and possibly disturbing imagery and situations described therein.  I recorded this story using Audacity.  The recording of Part 1 lasts about 35 minutes, and the (.mp3) file is about 32 MB in size (so it probably won’t stream well unless you’re on some awesome high speed internet connection).

Special thanks to Cle for sparking my inspiration after commenting on Anita Marie Moscoso’s story “Bentley the Bone Picker.”  So sorry Cle… but once you said it, I just couldn’t leave the pillow alone.

Enjoy,
Jade

The Perfect Present: A Short Story by Jade Leone Blackwater

September 24, 2009

Gold Frog Garden, Copyright © 2009 Jade Leone Blackwater

I wrote The Perfect Present in August 2009 for my sister’s 25th birthday.  I’m sharing this story here in audio, read aloud by yours truly.

This story is rated “OK” for all ages.  I’m new to audio recordings, so any inconsistencies in the reading are a product of my practice (and possibly my over-enthusiasm while practicing the art of character in voice).  I recorded this story using Audacity.  The recording lasts about 25 minutes, and the (.mp3) file is about 23 MB in size (so it might not stream very well).

If you are among the deaf readers in my audience and would like to read a copy of The Perfect Present, please email me with your request.

Happy Birthday Sis, and enjoy everybody!
