Val was meant to have joined me in February to record her part. But she broke her foot – at an exercise class at Club Med in Mexico! Winter is not a great time to travel from Montreal to Madison, via Chicago O’Hare, on crutches. So we postponed her part. We had a much more enjoyable time together in June, with sunshine and leisure, especially as she came for a week and the actual recording took only two days.
I honestly thought that after I uploaded the 60+ mp3 files in August that we were done. But ACX wouldn’t accept the über high quality mono format. That meant getting a new set of mono files from Jake, and uploading them instead. I waited for 3 weeks before I checked that everything was OK with ACX. Thanksgiving intervened. Then I must have missed their e-mail telling me that I needed those two fateful words. Hopefully this is the last little piece of the puzzle and we can have an audio book (and the whole ‘Abbey Girls’ project) completed by Christmas, 2015.
