We have a Magic Window! I have given access to you, Stav, and to Cadastra as DPL! I'm glad that you can be in charge of the Magic Window! That's great!

I have entered the link that Tricia suggested as text source. https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.475974

Question: As I am rereading section one to prepare for recording, I am trying to decide about what accent to use. I had originally planned on using my own American accent except for the bits of dialogue, but now I'm having second thoughts. It just seems odd to be in her head and not in her voice. I have a pretty decent, but certainly not perfect, British accent. Would it be acceptable for me to give it a go? Would you rather I don't? Should I do a page or two and get feedback? Sorry if I'm overthinking this, but I adore this book and want to do it justice. Thanks for your input, Wendy

Please read in your natural accent. The one you feel comfortable with.
