Hi Kara - The files have been uploaded to Kri's server:

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Thanks!

Fabulous! How exciting!

Would you like proof-listening? It's generally a good idea, as all of us miss little edits from time to time. We ask listeners not to critique reading style but instead to listen for things like repeated sentences or other easily-fixed editing errors.

If you like, I will set up a thread over in the Proof Listening area.

Or, I can go ahead and start cataloging. Your call :)

edit: I took a quick listen to chapter one -- sounds wonderful! Great pacing, nice and clear, very well read. I can hear you smiling during the funny parts! :)

Thanks Kara! Yes, proof listening sounds like a good idea. If you wouldn't mind arranging it, that would be great.

This was such a fun book to read. Once I'm caught up with some of my chapters, I'll have to think of another solo to read.

Thanks again!

Sherry

Here's your Proof Listening thread:

You don't have to do anything about it though; I'll let you know if there's anything that needs to be fixed :)

Have fun with Wuthering Heights!

16:50 text missing - it sounds as if the part in the bracket was accidentially edited out. Perhaps there is still the original recording?: smoothness outwardly.

Have just heard from Sherry -- she's been swamped at work but is still planning to finish Emma for us when she has time. Hooray!

Nope. But I'll probably just re-record the too-quiet chapters myself so we can get this lovely book released to the public!

Completed! All audio files can be found on our catalog page:

Sherry, I took the liberty of re-recording those two very quiet chapters so that we could get your wonderful recording out to the public. If at any time you'd like to record them yourself, I'll be more than happy to replace mine with yours in the finished project! Just let me know :) Hope to hear your voice here again sometime when life is less busy!

I'm so glad that this book is available now. It's such a great book and such a great recording (well, I didn't listen to the rerecorded chapters, but as Kara recorded them I now that they are also perfect). Thanks to Sherry and Kara!
