    1. Is there a deadline?
      We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    2. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/11759/11759-h/11759-h.htm
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

hm it seems people are taking the same role in both plays, to have continuity, so let me claim Mrs Edward Bradley as well in the other play: Section 10 please Mrs Edward Bradley "Cast for Lady Amaranth"

Hi
No need to if you don't want to. The other 2 plays in the book are done by different people and this will be published in 2 different collections.
Thanks

oh ok, I see there is another reader interested in this role as well. Since I already have one role in the first play, I can well relinquish my claim in the second. Just wanted to let you know, Kim, you can give the role to Leanne, no problem. :)
