Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks, Erin! Those two corrections have been made and Part the Second uploaded again. I noticed that the sound of my voice on the replacement text is really different to the original - not sure why I can't get the same quality, I may have another go later, but it may just the passage of time! I'll ...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Part 2 corrected and uploaded and Part 2 of Part 3 ready for PL. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_04_gaskell.mp3 Could I ask to look out for 'prelatist' in 04 - it is in there somewhere but just realised I didn't correct it. Also I have chosen Ha as in HaHa! for the pronunciation of...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

That is interesting! I know that housing conditions were especially bad in the 1840s, so maybe that was a sign of things getting a little bit better. Nice to see they are making a park there as well. I don't think much has happened in that part of town since the second world war. I think I'm now see...

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_03_gaskell.mp3 - 59:11 This is the first part of part the third, ready for PL! The second and final part will follow in a day or two. Thanks for the PL notes on Part 2. So many omissions! I remember that this recording was quite tiring on the eyes - ...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_02_gaskell.mp3 - 71:37 Lois, Part the Second ready for PL! I'm afraid 70 minute recordings are going to be par for the course for this project. Planning ahead, I've decided to consider A Dark Night's Work a novel (it was published over 8 issues) and ...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Part the first is corrected and uploaded. I am struggling through Part the second which should come in at just under 80 minutes, while Part the third is around two and half hours! Dickens must have had more space to give her than he did in Household Words. I'll take them away with me and hopefully g...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1854-1858 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Modern Greek Songs corrected and ready for spot PL! To be honest, I no longer remember exactly why I decided to read directly from the journals. But I like the idea of reading these pieces as they originally appeared. Also we have recordings of a lot of these pieces in the catalogue from various boo...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1854-1858 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks, Erin! I'll get these done later this week. Meanwhile, I've launched a new project for ATYR - https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=84195&p=1821203#p1821203 - and the first part of Lois is waiting there. Is it too troublesome to PL from HW and ATYR scans? I do want to read from the ...

Re: [COMPLETE] The Master-Girl by Ashton Hilliers- ans

I used the author you entered in the template which automatically goes into the database record ? Was it me, then? I was just about to blame your dog (as I don't have one of my own to blame) :) If it's possible and not a whole load of trouble, I think it would be best to change to Ashton Hilliers

Re: [COMPLETE] The Master-Girl by Ashton Hilliers- ans

Thanks, Anne. You have gone for the racy cover! I like it! :clap: :clap: :clap:

But do you want to use his real name? Ashton Hilliers is the name in the book and shows up more on the Internet.

Soon as I catch up I'll check the title etc matches the first one - I haven't forgotten the cataloguing project either - just needs a bit of finishing off

Thanks for the podcast link. I'll listen while I'm editing Lois - it will get me in the mood! Meanwhile, here comes Modern Greek Songs https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories3_01_gaskell.mp3 - 46:32 I'll number the files sequentially, but do the spoken intros and outros as if each piece is ...
