Re: (SOLO) Fifty Years Ago by Walter Besant - dc

Sections 02 and 03 are ready for PL. aniroo, I've been swamped for the last couple of weeks. I hope my time will free up some after this coming week so I can focus more on narration, both for this and another project I have going outside Librivox. I haven't checked the audiobook you recommended to m...

Re: (SOLO) Fifty Years Ago by Walter Besant - dc

Sections 00 and 01 are ready for PL.

aniroo,
I'm going to try to post one or two sections here each week (depends on the length), but I currently have quite a bit going on in my part time work and a narration I am doing for someone that will take a couple of months for me to complete.

smike » Today, 12:32 pm I'd like to DPL, if you'll have me. Hi, Claudia, I did extended a feeler toward aniroo and will give her 48 hours to reply as to whether she has an interest in being DPL. If she chooses not to - or does not respond in that time, I would be honored to accept your offer! Gary

craigdav1 » 49 minutes ago MW coming up. edit: I removed the translator and made a few minor editorial changes. I also reduced the number of sections to 20 as there is a preface and 19 chapters and we can always add more sections if we need them. Without the numerous illustrations the chapters do n...

Re: (SOLO) Fifty Years Ago by Walter Besant (1836 - 1901)

pnagami » 40 minutes ago Gary, Walter Besant always wrote in English, I think. Perhaps your translator is the editor? Pam Pam, I thought I left the Translator box blank. I am not aware of any editor other than Besant, himself. And, yes, it is in English, which is the language I checked. Sorry, but ...

Lynnett, I hate saying this, but I feel I need to bow out of my commitment to Section 2. I am not going to get it done in a reasonable time. :(

Re: (Solo) Memories of Old Montana by Con Price - m8b1

I wonder if his wife is related to K Ross Toole. He's a well know Montana historian.
aniroo
I'd guess there is a pretty strong possibility. Her father had four brothers including the Governor.

Re: (Solo) Memories of Old Montana by Con Price - m8b1

aniroo,
I've dropped off Sections 17 and 18 for you. Another 6500 words to go!

Been trying to work on it a little each day - and get smarter about how I approach recording and editing.

I think your pace is wonderful. No changes needed. aniroo That is good to hear. I've just added Sections 14 through 16 to the list to be reviewed. They are a bit slower, intentionally. 14 and 15 are done around 140 words/minute and I think they sound a little slow. It's all about gaining experience...

Section 13 is ready for review PS IF you didn't "screw up" once in a while, I'd be out of a job. aniroo Well, you will not have to worry about that while I am around. :D Gary BTW, I am wondering if I am narrating too quickly on some of the chapters. If you feel like I should slow down, please let me...
