Hi Liza

I ran the checker on your sample and it came up with the following errors:

1) The file name should use all lower case letters.
2) The bit rate should be 128 kbps rather than 320 kbps
3) The recording should be in mono sound, not stereo sound.
4) The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB) - yours was 94 db.

You can download the Checker programme (which is free) here:

There were also a few plosives. The wiki has a discussion on this subject:

The noise floor was also a little high (-34 dB). Please check the following wiki page for information about noise removal:

You do have a pleasing and well-modulated voice.

I would also suggest that you remove your email address from your posts in order to deter scammers.

Cheers
