Hello, Sonia! I hope you had a lovely few days off, if it was for pleasure that you were travelling.

I've flagged up a very small thing in chapter 15, from 1.15-1.17. It's on page 133 of the novel, if you're reading the pdf, the first page of the chapter. The sentence reads: ' as you did not answer...'. I didn't hear the bit in square brackets, and I think the sentence and paragraph make more sense if it is included, which is why I mention it.

On these chapters I've been following along with the text, and I don't think you should start to feel self-conscious. You have a very high level of accuracy, and perhaps if you look in the original file that bit of the sentence has just been edited out or something similar.

Have a listen and let me know what you think.

Hi Erin !

How could I have forgotten this bit !!!! Or maybe I didn't forget, but deleted it by mistake, I can't say for sure. Anyway, I re-uploaded it again, this time with the missing bit. And I'm not easily disheartened, please tell me such mistakes. I want to know when my level of accuracy is lacking. One should never take it for granted.

New recording time: 16:31 min.

Now that I'm back I hopefully find some time to record the last chapter as well. It's the smallest chapter, I should be able to finish it in one go.

Welcome back! Chapter 15 is now PL OK. 8-)

I would say, take your time with the last chapter if you need to, but recording is addictive!

I know, it's true. I actually don't have as much "quiet time" at home as I would like to, otherwise I would be doing much more recording at the moment. But I'm quite confident that I can manage in the next day or two.

Here is the final chapter for me. *does the happy dance* To be honest, I wasn't sure at all that I would manage such a big assignement when I took it on. I'm glad I prevailed. (and a bit proud too, it might be nothing for experienced solo readers, but it was a big feat for me)

Recording time: 10:27 min. hopefully all ok

And chapter 16 is done! Well done, and congratulations on your first major prose project! You might be tackling long solos sooner than you think, you know. :wink:

Yay !! Thanks

Oh no, I don't think that will be any time soon. Now I need to relax again from prose for a while. But there's enough projects around to help out with, I won't be idle. :)

I was enjoying participating in this book though :) Hopefully you find another female reader for the beginning of the book.

I'd be willing to take chapters 1-9, if they're still available. Would having a male narrator be odd, though, since it's a female protagonist?
The real question is: why not?

Boomcoach hasn't logged on since mid-November.
Is someone else watching this project?

A male reader, SpookyNoodle, offered to claim 1-8 in January, but has received no reply.
I will claim 1-8 if it is female preferred.

Our DPL, Newgatenovelist, has been keeping an eye on the project. And, the way that Boomcoach set the project up, sections 1-8 are reserved for a female reader. So, I guess that we will have to go with Patti for 1-8. Sorry SpookyNoodle, for not responding sooner and for not giving the sections to you.

Sections 1-8 are yours, Patti. Thank you!


ETA: I just looked at the MW, and sections 17-24 are assigned to Boomcoach, and he has not been here is November 13. I will PM SpookyNoodle (I love that name!) to see if he is interested in those sections. Problem mostly solved!

OK, SpookyNoodle has agreed to take sections 17-24, which means we are all full! Moving on to Readers Found!

Thank you, Ann, and thank you very much, Patti and Spookynoodle, for claiming! I'm looking forward to hearing your chapters. :D

I am working in Audition instead of Audacity, since that's what I have available and am familiar with. Someone said that the LV uploader has problems with files where I've assigned ID tags in Audition, is that still the case or should I attempt to upload stuff with ID tags from Audition attached?

You could try and see what happens. If you do have problems, is there any way that you could take off the tags?
The tags don't need to be filled in because the cataloging system will write over whatever happens to be there. But, I also don't have any experience with Audition, so I don't know about the uploader having problems with the tags.

Having the tags attached is an optional thing when I export. I just saw the info in the first post and thought I'd check.
