Ok so there is one really long sections. But the rest are manageable. I feel like deciding it by Subchapter would be way to confusing.

If I may offer a comment which may save you some trouble later - Chapter 5 is 14,500 words long. You are going to need to split it. (I'm a pretty fast reader but even I couldn't get that into less than 72 mins.) It would be better to plan that before hand than to have to change the section numbers later.

Since this chapter also has 12 subchapters, the simplest way would be to make "Chapter 5, Part 1" from the start to end of subchapter 6, and "Chapter 5 Part 2" subchapter 7 to the end. Both parts would be around 7,000 words that way - but that's just a suggestion, I haven't actually read the text closely.

Noticed you put the page counts. Unfortunately Pages don't really tell a prospective reader how long the section is since the print size can vary so much. I would really appreciate it if you would do a word count. Other than that, things are looking good.
EDIT: just noticed the comoment by Elizabby. yes, that is my concern exactly. I think when the BC realizes the length, he will need to split chapters.

Are we a go? I'm ready to record if that's the case. (I just didn't see my claim in the MW.)
E agora, José?

If you need any help just let me know. I've a lot of experience in doing this. Actually just one or two chapters might need to be split. Let's talk, eh?

That was great fun! May I do Section 2? (I'll have to pass on anymore, though, at least for now.) Entertaining writing!

I'm afraid I find myself overextended. You best remove me from the project. I apologize.

Sure thing. Thanks for a fantastic chapter one. I'm sure it will get Pled soon.
