Hi Jake! Welcome to Librivox and the Ghost and Horror Collection! :clap:
That was some cool narration! Thank you! And I enjoyed the story, though I couldn't listen to parts 4 and 5. They sounded doubled. Have you kept your working file in Audacity (or the software you are using)? Maybe there are multiple tracks overlapping, so you can fix that there. It's from around 24:48 to 31:01 in the recording.

If you are using Audacity, when you export anew, check the Export options and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, and "128 kbps" for Quality. Oh, and when uploading, you can click on "Select MC" and choose "rapunzelina" so that your file goes in the correct uploading folder for this project :thumbs:

Hi, here is my submission for this spooky collection. It's my first time recording a longer piece (I've only done short poems before), so any feedback would be appreciated. I fear I may have mispronounced a few words as well :roll:

Thank you, Michael! You did a splendid reading! Your transition to longer recordings went very smoothly :D
May I keep this recording for the next collection? I see we already have this particular story in the magic window (currently at section 11)
No worries, it's something that happens often! Bierce is quite popular with these collections!
And it will be marked PL OK, nothing you need to change, I'll just fix the filename when the time comes.

I wanted to say about pronunciation, or rather mispronunciation; there's no such thing! :lol: for example, even the word "scone" has two different pronunciations, so who's to say which is right and which is wrong!

Hi Paul! Welcome to Librivox and to the Ghost and Horror Collection!

Thank you for offering your recording! You have a nice, clear sound! Tech specs: bit rate is correct, but the track is in stereo. Will you be able to turn it into mono and re-upload?

Oh, apologies! I really thought I had it exported in mono. Let me re-export and upload again.

All best,
Paul
