Season 3 Episode 22: Darlene Foster Reading Amanda in Spain: The Girl in the Painting

Posted on: June 5, 2021

I am so pleased to be reading from my book, Amanda in Spain, on Tea Toast and Trivia.

Bookstores, libraries, and coffee shops are great places for book readings. There is something extraordinary about hearing the voice of an author reading their stories. Their voice and intonation are nuanced by the many hours of effort putting pen to paper.  They created the characters, structured the plot, and lived every twist and turn that creates bumps in the storyline. 

Living in the reality of Covid-19, book readings at public libraries and bookstores have been curtailed.  We are learning to embrace technology in new ways.  Welcome to the podcast series, “Authors Reading their Books”, which will recreate the reading spaces in a virtual venue.  I invite you to put the kettle on and join the conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia. I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

I am thrilled to introduce Darlene Foster who has graciously agreed to be our guest author reading from her novel, Amanda in Spain: The Girl in the Painting (Amanda Travels #2) which is available on Amazon.   I am looking forward to meeting up with Darlene and joining Amanda on one of her many adventure.

I loved your readings, Darlene.

Thanks, Robbie. These are fun to do, especially since Rebbeca and Don make it so easy.

Awesome, Darlene. I love Rebecca’s podcasts. Clicking over to visit with you two. Hugs on the wing!

They are great. Huge hugs back!!

Darlene – I had so much fun meeting up with Amanda and Leah. I especially appreciate how you discuss important issues like the busyness of parents, the longing to travel etc. Your bring these ideas in gently without disrupting the adventure. Best of all, you invite young readers to begin their life-long reading journey. Many thanks.

Thank you so much for your kind words. If my books entice a young person to read, I have accomplished my goal!

Darlene I count myself lucky to have heard you in person! In spite of the challenges of COVID it is wonderful to see the creativity of technology being used to fill in for now.

It was so wonderful that you were able to attend my presentation at the Calgary Library a couple of years ago. Technology has certainly been a godsend at this time and has given me new opportunities. Some good comes out of everything.

Congratulations, Darlene. This is very exciting.

I love doing podcasts!

Wonderful reading, Darlene. Awesome podcast, Rebecca!

Thank you so much, Donna! Rebecca does such a great job.

That was great, Darlene. Isn’t it great to still share your stories while the children are in school or at home. How many opportunities have you had to read this way to kids?

Thanks, Pete. This has been a great opportunity. To be able to still share my stories, even though I am unable to travel, has been a blessing.
