Hi there, first time recording :D

I would like to try section 8: The Flying Man (2,700 words)

I haven't worked out a pseudonym under which I'd like to appear in the catalogue, so please just use my username for now. Am I able to change it later if I come up with something good?

Thanks for doing your 1 min test! You can have Chapter 8, no problem, but please make sure your test is fully OK before you record for me - otherwise the file might not be usable.

You don’t need a fancy pseudonym - I just use my real name. Also be aware that since you read it into your file it can’t be changed. Once you’ve said “Read by...” it goes into the catalogue that way. This can sound a bit odd if you start here reading kids books or SF and later switch over to non fiction and have to say “read by Glinda the Good Witch”!

Thanks Lauren, if you give the length of the file in minutes and seconds, then I can check that we have it all! I currently have your file as being 18:23, if that's correct we are all good! If the file was supposed to be 30 mins long, we have a problem...

Thanks, Lauren! Well read and PL OK.
Just now and then a bit strong on the plosives, but over all quite good. :)
