David Narrates Books

Selections from Chapters 4 and 5 of Dance of the Nutcracker by Paul Thompson and Crazy Faith by Michael Todd

Things are really starting to heat up in Dance of the Nutcracker! In Chapter Four, Fritz plans his escape from prison, and in Chapter Five, he has an unpleasant encounter with the Malregent, the tyrannical ruler of Delysia.

Then, we go in a little bit of a different direction as I narrate a selection from Michael Todd’s Crazy Faith, in which he talks about having child-like trust in our Heavenly Father.

Can you believe it’s May already?!

You may have seen a notification from me elsewhere explaining that I’ll soon be focusing (nearly) exclusively on my Substack content. I am truly grateful to everyone who has been following my journey here on WordPress over the past couple of years. I would be honored if you would head over to davidsheley.substack.com and subscribe to my newsletter. Initially, it will be the same content as you see here, but as I make the transition, I will allow my WordPress site to fade into the background as my Substack publications come online. If you’d like to know more about what this Substack stuff is all about, drop me a comment, and I’d be happy to tell you more.

The Nutcracker Trilogy

I will continue to shamelessly promote these books because I’m so excited about being a small part of Drosselmeyer’s journey. If you’re new here, let me encourage you to check out The Nutcracker Trilogy by Paul Thompson. All three books are available in print and as e-books. Books one and two are available as audiobooks, narrated by yours truly. Click the links below to explore.

Oh, and it doesn’t have to be Christmas for you to enjoy these stories (just like it doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy Harry Potter).
