New From M. B. Weston: “The Survivor” Told on Video

Originally posted on M. B. Weston's Official Website:

At DragonCon, I debuted my new live storytelling session at my reading, where I told (not read) my new short story, “The Witch Hunter,” from the point of view of the main character, who happened to have Alzheimer’s. (Yes, I had to act like an Alzheimer’s patient.) So many people have asked me about where they can find videos of me telling stories since then, and I realized that I debuted my new YouTube channel while everyone was packing and preparing for DragonCon, and several of you didn’t see the updates.

If you missed it, here’s what I’ve been up too. Please check out  my first series of storytelling videos. This series is called “The Survivor,” and I’ve adapted it from my steampunk short story of the same name. (Here’s the link to the book information.) In this tale, an assassin named Angelica Blackmore is assigned to a dangerous…

Beginning Photography

In the recent weeks, I have been working on getting to see if I can generate an income from photography.
