A Reading— Break the Bodies, Haunt the Bones by Micah Hicks.

The reading of Break the Bodies, Haunt the Bones by Micah Hicks was an interesting session to attend. I don’t think that I’ve ever attended a reading session by the actual author of a book, so this experience was new to me. I thought that it was interesting about the characters being based on something that took place during a period of Micah’s life. He said that past experiences were the reason behind the inspiration for this book, and it made sense considering how he went into a VERY lengthy story on some of those experiences. Usually when someone spends a long time getting to the point about something, it makes me lose patience, but hearing Micah talk about his experiences only sparked my interest in the words that he would say next. It was nice to put a voice, his voice, behind the characters and the words, and to visualize how the characters might sound—his Hogboss voice was a little rusty. When he finished the reading, I felt content because I could now put a voice behind the story and it made the story better if that makes sense. It was an even better feeling having a physical copy and getting it signed by him, which completed the reading for me.
