There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

I have uploaded both my recordings, I apologize for taking the full two weeks. It was the end of the semester and a few things came up that prevented me from recording.
Let me know if there are any issues or problems with my recording, I will have time tomorrow to make corrections if needed.

Thanks Alex! I've just had a quick listen to Chapter 13, and it sounds like a draft version? It is full of repeats and finger clicks and such. I'd prefer it if you edited it down yourself to a single version of each line, no other sounds, with 2-4 seconds between lines where other people/narration needs to be cut in. Also, no pauses longer than 1 second in the middle of your speeches.

In Chapter 8 the voice credit is fine - you don't need to read the chapter headings, legal disclaimers and such - all that is read by the narrator.

The quality of your voice and recording is lovely! Volume and pacing are fine too - no need to change anything there! :thumbs:

Also, did you want to appear in the catalogue just as Alex Bogues? Do you have a website or blog or anything you want me to link?

I apologize, I uploaded my pre-edit files by mistake. I have re-uploaded them to the librivox dropbox. Yes, Alex Bogues is fine for the catalogue.

This has been a great experience so far, I really enjoyed the recording!

Chapter 8 is PL OK! :thumbs: Very good! Nice clear recording - well done! :clap:

(Maria: there is one repeat of a line which can just be cut out in editing. Also, the voice credit is here which can go into Chapter 1. Thanks!)
I can't seem to get the new file for Chapter 13 - this is the same one as before, still 4:45 long. Can you reupload your post-edit Chapter 13 please, and post the link here so that I can use it? Also, let me know how long the edited file is - that's the quickest way to check that I have the correct one!

It seems the librivox uploader did not overwrite the original file for chapter 13, but it did overwrite the 8th chapter, interesting. I uploaded it under a different file name, here it is.

This is now PL :thumbs: OK! Lovely expressive reading - hilarious how Lestrade claims to have seen it all himself! :lol:

Soooo - if you are now a free agent, you might like to head over to the other Sherlock Holmes book and do some more reading for me there? Link in my signature. Or if you'd prefer a change of pace, look at any of the links which interest you - they are all Dram Reads - that's kind of my thing! ;)

Maria, Chapter 13 is now ready to edit! :mrgreen: (Just make sure you use the second chapter 13 file, not the 4 minute one.)

There is one little thing in Chapter 13 which I'll see if I can fix myself, so don't catalogue us just yet.

Thanks so much for finishing off the editing for this project! :9:
