Thanks, Dave, I appreciate it. I am quite sporadic about completing chapters, but I really do want to finish this book.

Your description of the book makes me want to listen to the entire book so it may be a day or two before I get to the new chapters.

That's fine. There's no hurry, and I'd appreciate any feedback you feel like giving. It's a great story, and I hope I can do it justice.

Great story. I've noticed that the volumes on several sections are below the recommended 89dB (Section 4-85.7dB, 5-82.4dB, 6-80.1dB, 10-84.5dB). If you are using Audacity it may be necessary to use Effect/Compressor (usually twice) before amplifying as clipping will prevent amplification. A link to an instructional video is below.

Cool, thanks! I've been wondering about that but assumed it would require selecting and amplifying individual sections to avoide the loud parts.

Thank you for the encouragement WYSIWYG!

craigdav1, I tried the compressor on chapters 9 and 10 before re-uploading. I don't know if what I did helped, but hopefully I'll get the hang of it. I don't know what happened to chapter 10, but it lost most of the recording when I exported to MP3, so I redid that step too.

Due to a crazy work schedule, I may not be able to record again till near the end of October, If I get a chance sooner, I will.
