I believe I fixed the stumble by just editing a little bit out, but if you'd prefer for me to just re-record that whole section, I definitely can!

It shouldn’t be necessary, but I’ll take a listen.

I had already started recording another story for this collection and finished it up today. Hope it's okay to go ahead and submit even though I had edits waiting PL approval.

The Vanishing Prince
Repeated Passage 4:52-9:16

Skipped passage :"But here again he was immediately fortunate, yet ultimately unfortunate,"....“I saw some queer-looking people leaving as I came in,”

Pleaseadd "by G.K. Chesterton" at the end.

Please slow down when reading... listeners need to process what you are saying. With audiobooks, slower is better.

Thank you

As an aside, 2 weeks ago we had our first snake in the garden 🪱, caught up in bird netting. Called 911 and the fireman said it was harmless but relocated it for us. Thursday our dog was barking to raise the dead. Said snake was back (it still had netting around it, so we knew it was the same one.). Seriously thinking of moving before we get a rattler. We were told they don’t come into residential areas but stay in the desert.
