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!

To clarify: the book has 25 chapters, plus a separate introduction, so there are 26 total sections. Not sure if that makes a difference for the initial setup.
Thanks!

Updated the MW with chapter titles. I added a section for Chapter 25, but the section compiler wouldn't let me assign it to myself as the reader. Anne, can you assist with that please?
Thanks!

I've waited 48 hours to see if a DPL would drop in (crickets).

So I'll DPL, if you'll have me.

One book is finished - another book starts!

And I finally got some silent time around here to record my tracks for the next chapter in my book, yay.

Thanks, Anne!

A quick question: on my last solo project, I added ID3 tags as I completed and submitted files (author's name for Artist, section number and title for Title, and book title for Album), as well as updating the metadata in the section compiler. Would you like me to do that for this project as well, or is it something you would prefer to take care of in the publishing process?

I'm happy to do either, just let me know what makes life simplest on your end.
Thanks!
Matt

I was going to mention the metadata stuff on your last project - I don't think it's necessary to add any of those tags. I believe they are all added as a part of the publishing process.

Anne can let us both know about that.

Anything you add to the metadata (except in compilations from different authors) is overwritten when I catalogue - that way we are sure that it is treated as an album in most ways that listeners use - before the software update it was a big problem if some mistyped anything in the metadata fields so it doesn't matter if you have done it - it is just a waste of effort :D

Fair enough... I will submit each file the old-fashioned way 🙂
