I will definitely use audacity to edit it and will pay very close attention to the levels. I know it will take some work but at the same time it might be fun.
I have the room with carboard egg crates on the wall. We call it the crazy room . . . not that I'm crazy or anything . . .
I'm really looking forward to doing the ebook. I've been in a play before and have an idea how to do the voices. I never let anyone discourage me from accomplishing what I want, no matter how big of a dolt I am for doing it.
I'll check out that mic and add it to my list of options. I may be able to steal my wife's laptop and hide away with that.
Thank you all very much for the advice and information. Hopefully in a couple of months, I'll have an audiobook too.
