Take however long you need on chapter 9. It's not like I have a trip planned or anything, so I'll be here whenever it's ready! :D Chapter 10 is PL OK.

A slightly achy arm is pretty good going. I'll keep my fingers crossed everything goes smoothly for the next appointment!

I know that i mispronounced the word niche. Heard it immediately when listening back so i don't know how i got it wrong when reading lol. Just wanted to make sure everything else is okay too so that i can edit everything at once if there's any other errors :D

No worries. It never fails to amaze me how often I can mispronounce words I know, or second guess myself when I'm actually in the middle of recording.

Chapter 12 is PL OK.

No problem about the edits - just do them when you can. I know it usually takes me more than one recording session to get edits, and that's if I'm lucky!

The reading itself is okay but the bit rate should be 128 - just that one technical note.

This chapter has some of the most even volume I've seen in a while. What on earth did you use? :lol:

Chapter 13 has been fixed and 14 is ready for PL :D

I'm guessing 13 is so even because of the compressor, but I've never seen it makes things that even :shock:

Chapter 13 is spot PL OK. A couple of notes below for chapter 14.

I've been using compressor too, but that just looked almost eerie. I was impressed by whatever it was!

Excellent! Chapters 9, 11 and 14 are spot PL OK.

Notes for chapter 15:

And so it was that by dying to Stephen, Sir Philip would live on in the attribute of mercy that had come that day to his child.

I think this is one of those words that tends to make English so hard to learn as a foreign language, because the stress is different when it’s a noun versus when it’s a verb...

...she felt his si-[des swell with a vast, resigned sigh; heard the creaking of damp girth leather as he sighed because he had understood her. For the love of the chase was still hot in Raftery, the love of splendid, unforeseen danger, the love of crisp mornings and frost-bound evenings, and of long, dusky roads that always led home. He was wise with the age-old wisdom of the beasts, it is] true, but that wisdom...
A bit of the paragraph seems to have been clipped in the editing, I’m guessing (?).

It's really moving along. You're already a quarter of the way there! I hope things are going well, you've had your second jab and everything with Fiverr is better than you'd hoped.

Chapter 18 is PL OK. No worries about the other chapters, just do them whenever. I'm not going anywhere - quite literally, since I'm hiding inside until I can get my jab! - so whenever you're ready is fine. :D

I've updated the MW, so it's all fine. :)
