After a few technical difficulties getting started, I think last night’s storytime went well. We had between 30 and 40 people watching online, and I filmed before a live studio audience of my son and the dogs. Toward the end, you can hear the dogs whining to go out, but I prefer to pretend they were caught up in the story and whining out of eagerness to learn how Golaka would escape.
If you missed it, the video is posted on YouTube and Facebook.
Thanks to everyone who participated. It was good to connect with other people, and to distract myself from all the 2020 crap going on these days.
I definitely plan to do this again. It may not be a weekly thing — this took a bit more time to prepare, do, and upload than I’d expected — but I’ll announce the next one as soon as I figure out the details. (I also have a longer-term idea for something I could do…but that’s still in the Secret Projects file for now 😉 )
And yes, I intend to keep wearing the hat!

Thank you so much for posting! My oldest child (5th grade) has been enjoying the Jig books and the janitors of the post apocalypse. He’s been asking to read more of your books but he’s still a bit young for your other series, so he was thrilled with this story. It was a perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon together!
