There's Nothing Like Being Embarrassed By Your Own Book

Is it me?

Here I am, listening to each chapter of my audio book as it's being read, completed, and uploaded for my inspection. And we've gotten to the "juicy" parts. The lovemaking. The sealing of two bodies into one.

And I'm dying of embarrassment.


Is it because I'm now hearing the words I wrote being spoken aloud? And with emphasis?

Is it because I'm hearing them from a whole new perspective?  Because a stranger is acting out my story into an audio format?

Or is it because the person reading my book aloud is a man? (Would having a woman read it make any difference?)

There's nothing like being embarrassed by your own book.
