Just a logistical question: If JayKitty is playing Rebecca, shouldn't we open up Lorenzo’s Mother and Martha Meserve to another reader? As an avid listener to dramatic readings, I can say it could be quite confusing to the listener. Especially in Chapter 26, after we've heard (and have grown to know and love :D ) Rebecca's voice, the listener may easily be confused as to why Rebecca is at this meeting of adults and why Rebecca is criticizing herself and Mr. Ladd. As the voice attributes mostly come after the quote, the listeners will think Rebecca is speaking before they hear that it is actually Mrs. Meserve (each time). Lorenzo's mother isn't that critical and doesn't necessarily need a voice change, as her comments are not related to Rebecca or the current story line, but Martha Merserve's comments are directly related to Rebecca. I think it will be easy to find someone to read these few lines. I could recruit someone from our drama troupe if you like.
I see your point, but I already told JayKitty that she could read both parts (with that in mind). We're considering lowering the pitch of her adult women roles, so that should reduce the potential confusion you referred to. Thank you for your thoughts. :)

Twinkle88 told me I didn't have to include the voice credits in every chapter(just the first, which is already uploaded), because although people usually do, it's more of a hindrance to her when editing. Our consultation about this is on page 27 of this project's feed.
Thanks,
~JayKitty
