After my reading at my publication party, a cute guy, the president of the University Library Board, named Jeffrey bought a book, and as I sat trying to decide what to write to him on the author page, which is always a struggle for me between trying to be original and sincere, he asked had I ever thought about recording the book in my own voice. I had because Joe, my friend who lives in Fairhope, Alabama, records books, and had said I should try it. Jeffrey explained that he was the owner/operator of Audio Works, Inc. and that he thought my voice would make a great audio book and would I like to do it?
He says, “We’re going to do a photo shoot on Saturday.” We are? Consider my age, my dumpy body, my liver–spotted hands, and what about the age spots on my face. Dusty doesn’t care about those things. He’s a photographer with immense talent from behind the camera. Everything will be okay he assures me.
