You have your MW...

I have cleaned up the page a bit, but there are a few things to consider:

As you get more a feel of the story, please add a bit more to the "blurb".
The whole section on ID tags can be deleted -- this is a throwback to a previous version of our software. The tags are now added automatically and anything you put in gets overwritten.
You can shorten the file name if you wish... I'd recommend secretband_

Let me know if you have questions.
Help us finish:

Mary Anerley by R.D. Blackmore 30 sections remaining

You are awesome, thank you. I do not intend to begin recording until September 8th and as I get more involved with the story, I am certain other words for the description will be put in. I already do not like the word murder in the description. Great idea for the name change.
thank you again,
April

Okay I am thinking the name should be Mystery of the Secret Band . It is part of a trilogy with the two prior books having the word mystery in their titles. I have started putting in the chapter names.

I can put the books into a “group” so that listeners are directed to other books in the trilogy.

One last thought from me for tonight. I would like to only say "recorded by & my name" at the first and last chapters of this book. Every chapter seems unnecessary to me. Your thoughts here?
