    Amy, I just love this that you fought back fear and indecision about this decision to make the audio, and you WON! Good job. I hope you’re very proud of yourself! You will help many people with this audio, I just know you will!

    Oh, NOW I see. I guess I saw this earlier, but I didn’t see the link. Either your posts can often get a little long-winded or my ADD impatience makes me skip and say “NEXT?” HAHA. Lemme listen! Will get back to you. Sounds exciting!

    Hi LanieMarie,
    Ha ha! I do tend to have long lead-ins. Working on that!
    Looking forward to your feedback!

    I would just say that the voice seems a little bit sad and the rhythm is slightly slow (maybe just for me!). Otherwise, good job!

    Hi Amy,

    I closed my eyes and listened. I could see that footbridge in my mind. The narrator did a great job with her reading. I think this audio version of your book will be a blessing to blind people.

    Take Care,

    Matt

    It moves a little slowly for me. But maybe that’s what a person listening to a book needs. In my mind, I get the feeling that you have a more perky or more cheery voice You should really sound much more different from Bob. Nervous or anxious. I’m guessing your older than Bob. But he sounds older than you. My fave parts are your internal questions, your fears. They’re very real, they make me wonder how you got through it. So scary!!! Is there a way to make the audio book more like a play? Sometimes there are so many details about unimportant little things that get in the way of the flow of the story, and it feels like I’m getting side-tracked or focusing on something that doesn’t matter for a minute or so before I get back to the real “meat” of what’s going on. Not sure if I could handle a whole book in this way. I might like more of a play with some simple narration and fewer details. And that way, I could finished faster, too!

    Your reader read clearly, and though her emotions were subtle, the nuances of your thoughts came through. Like other responders, I felt impatient at the pace while listening at my computer, but since the only time I listen to book recordings is in the car perhaps the slowness is necessary; noise and distractions would make a fast pace impossible to comprehend. I love the emphasis on perceiving the same world differently, and I think the blind community would appreciate your candor. As always in new situations, you meet challenges head on. I read once that courage isn’t the absence of fear, but plunging forward in spite of it.
