Poison Island by Q [pseudonym of Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch (1863 - 1944)].

Mysterious old Captain Coffin not only has a wild story about a Honduran island where treasure lies, he has a map. But they must be wary because it also holds “a poison that kills a man and keeps him fresh as paint”. Nothing can hold Harry back from tagging along and meeting up with murder, intrigue, a collection of colorful characters, and a vociferous parrot. ( Amy Gramour)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/poison-island-by-sir-arthur-thomas-quiller-couch/

    1. 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.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. 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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16604
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      • "Chapter [number] of Poison Island. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

My apologies, but I am sadly not in a position to read chapters 1 and 2 at present. Please remove my name from this project.

Welcome Daniel,
Please submit a test in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum so they can check your tech specs. Once you are good to go, Chapter 1 it is and the adventures of Harry and Captain Coffin will begin. :)
Thanks,
Amy

Hello there!

Chapter 1 is ready. :mrgreen:
My very first chapter. I hope it is good enough. Otherwise, I can try to rerecord the chapter.

Hi Daniel,
To get you all set up and official Amy will need to know how you want to be listed in the catalog and if you have a website you would like linked to your catalog page.

Congratulations on your first chapter! I hope it went well and you enjoyed the process. End result sounds great. You meet all technical specifications. Only 1 note.
-You forgot beginning and ending silences. The beginning isn't as necessary but we do need 5 seconds of ending silence.
