Seriously, what fun! I wonder whether people in England always want Americans to do their fantasy novel reads, given that we always want Brits.

Christopher's sense of it is that the industry prefers an English accent unless it's something that clearly needs an American accent, like The Grapes of Wrath or To Kill a Mockingbird. I'm actually a trained and experienced voice actor myself, but I know when to get out of my own way!
