The combination of a marathon posting session over my erratic network, plus changes to my photos because of iPhoto changes, meant I was fussing with the tools more than I was concentrating on the content.
It has occurred to me that this podcast is taking a lot more time than I thought it would. Reading the novel aloud just for finding errors shouldn't take nearly as long as this process of reading one chapter, fussing with the podcast format and posting it to the web, and then repeat. At least the important task of finding awkward phrases is still being accomplished. But I fear the combined delays will push my publication date out a week or so.
I also have one other worry. I didn't give any real thought as to how long I'll leave the novel up as podcast chapters. It is a pre-publication version after all, and I'm hardly a professional voice actor. Maybe I should just leave it up for a month or so after publication, I don't know. Any feedback would be appreciated.
