Now that my show is over, of course I've come down with a bit of a cold (or outrageous angry allergies). I'll hop back on the Arabella train soon!

Hi Amanda

As I am finally back home and thinking about recording again, I would like to help out here by reading the letters of John Temple (after all he is a Brit).

However, before I commit to this I would like some idea how many letters there will be in vols 2 to 4, assuming you want the same reader all through. Could you give me some idea?

Hi Alan! There are only 5 additional letters over those volumes for John. :-)

Here is a first attempt at letter 3. I hope the format and style of reading are what you want. Let me know if not.

PL Notes for Letter 03:

LOL! So modest, Mr. Temple! I had to go back and relisten to a few places because I was laughing too loudly to catch what you were reading. lol! Very well done. I really enjoyed it.

Just a few notes...

At the beginning, we will need for you add your "cast call," if you will: [Your name], as [character name] (just stick in on the the front of this letter, and the editor will grab it)

@ 0:31 ... it sounds like a bit has been cut out (my computer does that when the antivirus gets extra vigilant and decides to run a scan without prior consent)
I heard ...Let see...
Should be ... Let me see...

Thanks,
Caprisha

Heyall,

I know it took me a long time, sorry. Here is my first attempt at Ed Rivers. Letter 1. Duration is 3:39.

Just added some sections to the MW to make uploading the narration files easier to keep track of! :)

Another for Arabella - I believe the way I did it is the way we're doing it now since we have narration LOL

I haven't taken a listen to more than the intro as we need it to do be done very specifically. [Your name] as [your character]. Can we make a note of that and either edit that intro here or upload a separate file with it?

Can I say how much I am enjoying PLing this project?

Okay, here's where we stand...

Narration Files - PLOK!

Arabella - Letter 20, PLOK! very cute! I am really enjoying her character being brought to life. I think this work is going to be much better "read" than it was simply on the page...if that is possible. :o)

EDITED:Ed Rivers - Letter 1: PL Notes: Overall, sounded good. Just a very few minor things.
"Edward Rivers read by ...." should be "[your name] as Edward Rivers".
Also, the filename should be emilymontague_letter01 (since you need to reupload). (I think you used the filename for the editor.)
And what lisp? lol! I was expecting some dramatic lisp. :wink:

Okay, I think that catches us up.
