"Well, my pretty one, well, how do things go with you now? You are a good bit happier than when you came to us, I think."

"We shall make a cure of her, John."

The second line is read by the reader for James Howard, which is fine except the first line is totally missing, so in my opinion we may as well have the reader for Squire Gordon record both if he's available.
Thank you, Arielle! I knew there was some chapter towards the beginning with something missing, but after the crash, I must admit I could not recall for sure which one it was. But this must have been it! Silverquill read Squire Gordon, and he is active. I will PM him about it.

Thank you, and my apologies to everyone for not replying to things in the thread as I should lately. My bad and I will make the effort to remedy it! (I have been keeping the MW up to date though I think! :mrgreen:)

I'll edit Chapter 13. Do you mind if I mark in the MW that Arielle is editing Chapter 8? I've been about to start three times and then remember that she's editing it. :)

Thank you, Adele! Feel free to make any MW changes you want. :-)

Sorry about that - I should have thought about that myself! I've gone ahead and marked it, but if there is anything like that in the future, feel free to change it!

Chapter 21 of Black Beauty sounds weird--either like it's over processed or missing something. It's very quiet and sounds like it was recorded far away from the microphone. Could you check it out? I didn't check every chapter, but 22, 23, 24, 28, 34, and 46 all sound this way as well. Thanks!

Nevermind...my speakers cut out and my computer was playing from a tiny little speaker that doesn't turn up. The files are all OK. :)

13 and 14 are PL OK!

I wonder if it would be possible, in the future, to amplify Larry's lines a bit more. I always find them very quiet compared to everyone else's, even if the actual volume is the same, and it makes listening a bit difficult. Does anyone else experience this?

Also, did anyone else have any ideas about the cast lists?

I did notice that, but I was having trouble amplifying them because of background noise and how high the peaks are. They are louder in the final file than they were to begin with, but I'll try to amplify them more in the future. Tortilla was going to put the cast list in the first chapter (in the MW Chapter 1 is edited but marked "see pl notes" and says "needs cast list"), but it might be better in a separate file because of how long it is.
