Usually, I just read and record the chapter text.  This is the first piece I’ve spent a lot of time with beforehand, thinking about it.  Which, I think, might mean this is on the unfamiliar side of reading vs. performing, one of the common differences between LV audiobooks and other publishers’.  (As mentioned here on the LV samples page, which  I look at from time to time, simply because it stars my first ever LV recording. Ego much?)

What I hope is that Elizabeth Willard comes through clearly, and there’s not obvious Cori hanging around catching the listener’s attention. I couldn’t have done it any other way (without even more performance angst), and the only thing I regret is the hideous sound cleaning process I used. Oh well, die and learn.
