Thanks!
We'll us it.

I've done the rough edit, and found one Matho line missing.
He has one little line before he launches into that long spiel.

I think it sounds terrific. :)

We have just two sections to completer this project.
Working on the next one to launch which will also have several little plays.

Hello--
Great job on the last section, Tom, Todd, and Larry. I've marked it PL Okay. Please check to see if the phrase at the very start of the recording should be deleted. I didn't have a problem with this, but the narrator doesn't always say the name of the next character speaking--just FYI.

Thanks,
Lora

Yep, it should be deleted - thanks.

For stage directions, the name of the character speaking is given only if it is followed by some other stage directions for clairty.
Thanks so much for your good PL services. :clap:

I'll do my best to get those last two sections in soon. I've sent a couple of PMs with no response.

Technically they have 3 more weeks. But I know - it stinks when a project is held up by a reader that may or may not come back. :roll:

Greetings, As the Narrator do you wish me to re-record anything?

If it is determined that Sections 28 and 31 are abandoned, I would be pleased to record them. In fact, they are now ready for submission upon your request.

I wish I could go ahead and give you the green light. :cry:
I really appreciate that!

I have sent the reader yet another PM to see if he is going to do these.
Unless our MC gives permission, we may have to wait until Sep 7.

I'm going to start prep work on the next one, On Anything.
It again has several little plays, written as such, and some dialogues that I would like to do as DRs again.

Larry,

Count me in for the next Belloc project. I loved this one and can't wait to sign on to the next.

Take care,

Greg

Okay - one week short of the full 2 months, I think you can probably reassign the last two sections.

With our MC's permission, I have reassigned these to you!
Thanks, Tommy

We'll get a running start on September. :wink:

. . . And the Running Start for September is off! We see Section 28 (carrying a slighter heavier duration of 16'10") still in the lead but closing in on the PL submission pre-finishing line is the only somewhat lighter Section 31 (a duration of 15'54"). This is truly a nip and tuck race to the pre-finish for these two erstwhile abandoned orphans (sigh!!), just look below:

Well, you have been the real champion in helping to wrap up so many loose ends with your professional narration!
Thank you so very much.

So, once our devoted DPL puts the headphones on, I think we'll have a wrap on this high quality production. :D

I'm doing a little prep work for cataloging on this.

Sections 40-49 can be deleted, correct?

Also, section 11's volume is way too low (down around 81 dB).

Oh, and section 27's link points to section 25's file, while section 26 has section 27's link... I do not see a section 26 file in the uploader folder.
In other words, please double check sections 25-27, make sure there are files for them, and that the links in the MW are correct.
My uploader folder is here, if you need to grab any links from it: https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/
