Not a problem at all. :)
We all try to fit LV into our other lives, and things are not always predictable.
I appreciate your good work.

And here are the remaining chapters.

There is a bit of an echo in chapters 30 and 31. I'm unsure how to remove them with using audacity, or if one even can. I moved studio locations in the middle of last week, and was only able to record chapter 29 at my former location. I have 4 dozen acoustic foam panels coming in during the middle of the week, that should be enough to remove the echo from future recordings. Again, I apologize for the delay, and inconsistency; It's just been a little tough for me lately.

I'm sure these will be fine.
I'll listen to them soon because I know our DPL is quite busy.

I'm dealing with more of the "echo" in my current set up, too.
I am planning to do too things. First, repositioning my mike to bring it a bit closer. Second, just hanging some blankets which act as a bass trap (cheaper and easier than acoustic panels) and thereby reducing the reverb.

We have a pretty lenient standard for this, but I'll let you know if there are any real issues.
Again, I truly appreciate your extra effort during these busy times for you.! :D

Hello Lomond,
Hope you're doing well.
Below is the revision for Chapter 17 with the corrected words. This completes all of my assigned chapters for this book. In June I submitted a template for a solo project, or I thought I did, but I must not have done it correctly because I never heard back from anyone. Please let me know so I can submit a copy of the template. :D
Best regards,
Janette

Filling in for lomond as he prepares for his journey with the kids.

This is certainly now PL OK, and quite an impressive chapter :clap:

I'm not sure what wen on with your template, so I'll send you a PM and see if we can get you going.

Thanks for your great contributions to this little volume. :D

Hot dog!

I've listened to all of the chapters, checked specs, and happy to pronounce them all PL OK!
Truthfully, I didn't notice any excessive echo in those last two chapters, so we are fine with that.

And, I enjoyed your reading. I think we have a very fine book to release to the public. :9:

Thank you all for your fine reading and to Ann for her MC duties. :clap:

Time to launch the next Little Jack Rabbit story. :D
