As I promised on Twitter yesterday here’s the video of me reading the prologue of The Stars Were Right. I had a lot of fun doing this. (Though I was pretty nervous initially.) When it was over I was happy to see that almost 100 people tuned in! How awesome is that? If you missed it live, don’t worry. I’ll do it again real soon, might even make this a weekly occurrence.
Apologies for the portrait mode in the video. For now Periscope doesn’t give you a landscape option. Enjoy the reading!

Paperback copies are available from: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or My Store.
Ebook copies are available for: Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iBooks, GooglePlay, or buy a DRM-Free ePub from My Store.
As mentioned earlier this week, I am going to be doing a live reading today at 4:00 PM from my first book, The Stars Were Right. To watch, just follow me on Twitter and I’ll tweet when my stream goes live. Or you can watch from your Apple iPhone by using the Periscope App. (My username is kmalexander.)
Those using Periscope can ask me questions. While I won’t be able to see the questions during the reading, once it’s over I’ll happily answer any questions folks may have.
See you at 4:00 PM PST!
So, my good friend Jake had an idea: with the arrival of Periscope people can stream anything to the world. So why not use this awesome new technology to do a live reading of one of my books for the whole internet. Brilliant, right? So, it’s going to happen and best of all it’s going to happen this weekend. I am going to do a reading of the Prologue of The Stars Were Right and you can tune in.
How can you tune in? Well there’s two ways:
- If you have an iPhone all you need to do is download Periscope, create an account, follow me (I am @KMAlexander) and then this weekend when I go to do my reading you’ll be notified and you can view my stream directly from your phone. It’s as simple as that.
- Don’t have a smartphone or using an Android phone? Fret not, you can still watch. Just follow me on Twitter and when my stream goes live Periscope will automagically tweet and you be able to tune in live from the web.
The plan is to do this on Saturday afternoon (PST). I’ll make another blog post before I begin. So keep an eye out. The way Periscope works I won’t see any questions while I read, but I’ll be happy to take any questions after. If Saturday works out, I’ll do it again on Sunday.
Writing this out is getting me all excited. I’m really looking forward to this, it sounds like it’ll be fun. Plus, it’ll be good practice for my reading at CthulhuCon next weekend. So follow along… readings are coming.
