  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thanks so much! Will fill in the MW, and then we'll see if my new project excitement will get me to record a chapter today or tomorrow.

Ok, couldn't help myself and recorded a chapter. These next two weeks I have an extremely light work schedule and am going to try to record a decent amount. No hurry to PL. Will slow down for sure after these two weeks.

As to the book, the prologue was great. I am really liking this writing style (wordy though), and I feel like there will be a lot less chaos than the last book. This one is descriptive and hooking, I'm curious what you think.

Hey Campbell,

I'm so sorry for the late PL. I didn't get a notification. :shock:

Brilliant recording! I really like your tone it matches the Prologue. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy the book. :9:

Very minor PL note:
@01m:21.108s - a new gust beat its tattoo on the glass.
I hear "grass" instead of "glass". I don't know why. So, could you please double check it?

How's it now? That's weird about the notifications. Hopefully they work from here on out! And I am glad you liked it, the tone is hooking and dark. I am hoping to record another section tomorrow!

It's perfect now. :clap: the notifications are working now. I forgot to check "Notify me...". Mission accomplished. :thumbs:

YAY! I'm looking forward to that. :9:

By the way, I felt that Abernethey is similar to Ebenezer Scrooge and Silas Marner. :hmm:

Interesting thought... I didn't seem to hate him as much though. Maybe if he remains we'll see. Glad about the notifications!
