He probably had a few beers before recording, sixret.

Well done, Pete! I bet Rob's audiobook will be up soon - however a full length novel might take a tad longer! :D

I really wouldn't bank on it being up soon! I genuinely hate the sound of my recorded voice. We'll see. If I can disguise it enough then maybe...with a good 'BBC' type accent. Also - doubt I will record the whole novel, lol...as its over 300 pages!!! :lol:
'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

Well - here's my attempt at a scene from The Last Summer. Hate my voice - think (in fact I know!) I'm mispronouncing 'Strychnine' but hey...! ;-)
