Yes, it's perfect! It was a long chapter indeed. Difficult you say? In your recording, your reading is flowing, you make it sound effortless! :9:

How nice of you. :9:
Ah, well, that's the magic of planning, and editing...
All the dialogue made it especially hard.
My voice is better in the morning, and I have found that Carmilla herself needs my "best" voice, both for the general tone, and for the particular bursts of various emotional states. (She suffers, she really does.)
So over the course of 2 very long recording sessions, several days apart, I did almost all the dialogue first -- the only exception being the "mountebank," because it seemed his voice needed to be thin & raspy -- and the other stuff later.
And for some reason, most of the text of this chapter (dialogue and not) was hard to get "right" -- despite all the pre-reading and marking up, I still had so many stumbles and wrong inflections and weird vocal fluctuations, that most of it had to be done at least 2 or 3 times. So there was a lot of listening/editing/cutting to do as the recording went along; this is more reliable for me than leaving it all for later editing.
And then everything was cut & pasted together in proper order.
Then it was ready for "normal" editing.
...wow, I sound like such a whiner... :roll:
...but the show must go on!
...and nevertheless, she persisted...
