PodCastle!

PodCastle's featured tale this week is my story "The Wizard's Apprentice"

I'm excited about this for many reasons, not the least of which is that this story forms the germ of my current WIP, also called The Wizard's Apprentice.  Someday I must, must, must write a post about turning a short story (and this one is very short indeed, less than 3500 words) into a novel (even a shortish one), and how it's not quite as easy a journey as you think it's going to be when you first hopefully divide the scenes into separate Scrivener files.  About the only thing that hasn't suffered some kind of a sea-change along the way are the names of the hero (Nick Chanticleer) and the Evil Wizard (Zachariah Smallbone).

In the meantime, enjoy.  Peter Wood reads the story, and I love the way he does crabby.  He made me laugh, more than once.

It's going to be a novel!?!? I had *no* idea. Wow, that'll be fun.

I'd love to read your post about turning a short story into a novel, btw!

I'd forgotten how much I love this story, and that eeevil wizard. Looking forward to reading the longer version!
