I would actually love to record it solo, I am too invested in the characters at this point to let anybody else do it! Thank you! :D
Hi Elizabeth,

As you have indicated that you intend to take this on as a solo, I've given you access to the project in the workflow so you can enter your links/times and update the MW yourself. I've entered your existing files for you as a start.

Since this will be your first project as soloist/book coordinator(BC), you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

If you have any questions, let us know. I've moved the thread to the Going Solo forum.

Thank you very much for all your help! :D Just to check, do I still use your MC in the uploader?

First set of PL notes (Chapter 1 and 2)! I adore your narrative voice, it's so soothing. <3
Chapter 1
8:31 - unintended pause of hesitation?

25:18 - At the end of the section, make sure to only say "End of Chapter [insert number here, in this case Chapter 1]," not end of [book title]. "End of [book title]" is reserved for the very last chapter of the book. Edit that portion out.

25:26 - Remove clicking sound

Chapter 2

3:25 - at first few and at great *intervals* [read as individuals]

16:01 to 16:28 - the vocals are a bit distractingly distorted here. Can they be cleaned up a bit more?

18:29 - missing line: "'[...]but I own I was rather annoyed.'"

19:21 - At the end of the section, make sure to only say "End of Chapter [insert number here, in this case Chapter 2]," not end of [book title]. "End of [book title]" is reserved for the very last chapter of the book. Edit that portion out.

Righty ho, for chapter two I decided the mic distortion couldn't be saved (my mic really hates me!) so I just decided to rerecord it with your notes, I'll update the MW as I go with the new recording and also all of the others with the edited ending :D

I would recommend doing that as you get my edits back. :) In terms of text corrections, I will only note them if they significantly change the meaning of a sentence.
Chapter 3:

9:27 - read as "Emma compiled" [should be "complied"]

19:26 - unintended pause to edit out?
Also, I am proposing a slightly edited summary for this book!
Emma Watson, the youngest child of six from a poor family, was sent away as a child to be raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle. When her uncle dies and her aunt remarries, Emma (now a pretty, well-educated, and opinionated young woman) returns home to help care for her ailing father and reconnect with her estranged siblings. She quickly must learn how to behave among the less affluent and navigate her way through the affections of many young men vying for her attention.

The Younger Sister is the first published completion of Jane Austen's unfinished novel The Watsons.

This summar is much better.
Love gothic novels? Try Children Of The Abbey. Interested in legents? Try Legents Of Saints And Sinners. Interested in femenist fiction? Try Falkner.

More edits!
Chapter 4

4:24 - "[...]Well you see, *Elizabeth*," said Mrs. Robert ["Elizabeth" is missing from reading.]

22:04 - missing "--I love to be of use to the fair."
Checked Chapter 3 spot edits as well- "complied" doesn't seem to be changed?

I'll change those bits, thank you! And whoops, that's me being a big dafty and accidentally reuploading the wrong file, I'll upload the correct one now, sorry about that! :D

Vol 1, Ch 10: 29:01

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/youngersister_10_hubback_128kb.mp3

Also I have a wee query for anybody here who knows how this system all works, when I get past volume 1 should I just continue naming the files in ascending order or should I distinguish between the volumes as technically volume 2 starts off with a chapter 1, I'm not sure what people normally do in this scenario! :-)
