Thanks, Bill. PL OK.
Let me guess. Recorded in the hull of the boat?
The echo-chamber effect was that noticeable, eh?

No, it was recorded in Berlin Germany at the bottom of a concrete-walled, 3-story-tall room with only large curtains on one wall to damp the sound.

I'm going to change my recording location into a bedroom, thereby losing the "in the hull of the boat" sound.
Sorry.

If it was a chapter book, I might take you up on a re-record, but no need to do that for this project. You could have intended to sound like you were inside Jonah's whale! :) It just surprised me because I know your usual quality.

Germany. Nice. Enjoy your vacation.

Great read, Rebecca! I was seeing that island looming ahead. You're PL OK. In future submissions, be sure to note the file length, which BC's (Book Coordinators) have to include in the MW (Magic Window). (I figured it out this time.)
