Awesome!

If I want to put a short two-character dialogue on the Section Compiler, is there a specific format for doing so?

Eg?
Lincoln Love Letters : Ann -Reader PersonA
Lincoln Love Letters : Abe - Reader PersonB

Lincoln Love Letters :Compiled- Reader PersonA; PersonB

You could do it that way (use the Add New Section button to get more sections). Then after the file is edited, I can delete the separate role sections.

The Voiage and Travayle of Sir John Maundeville Knight by Sir John Mandeville

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54281

Sir John Mandeville is the supposed author of The Travels of Sir John Mandeville, a travel memoir which first circulated between 1357 and 1371. The earliest surviving text is in French.

By aid of translations into many other languages, the work acquired extraordinary popularity. Despite the extremely unreliable and often fantastical nature of the travels it describes, it was used as a work of reference—Christopher Columbus, for example, was heavily influenced by both this work and Marco Polo's earlier Travels.[1]
The task of life should last as long as life lasts, that is the task of living.

Sure, did you have a particular selection or chapter in mind from it?

I signed up for DPL, but can I kick it off by narrating one? Would just that selection be PLed by someone else? Or could I DPL my own thing? Not 100% the LibriVox regualtions on that kind of thing.

If this is an acceptable entry, I could read it.
It's about 5160 words.

Sure, I'll add that to the window. That's probably going to be about 45 minutes long? Should be a digestible chunk. Thanks for getting us started here! :clap:

Whoa, I didn't realize until just this moment that I am assigned for this! :shock:
Which is fine. 8-)
But how did I not notice? (a rhetorical question) :roll:

Hi Adam, just checking...
Is this project still a go?
I have Poe's "The Balloon-Hoax" in my to-do list.
But I don't want to proceed with it unless I know it's going up, up, and away.... 8-)
Thanks very much...LJB
