The Strange Visitation by Marie Corelli (1855 - 1924).

The Strange Visitation is a Christmas ghost story in the spirit of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It was commissioned by the Strand as a supplement to its December volume of that year. ( A. Gramour)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-strange-visitation-by-marie-corelli/

    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!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100597604
    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.

I'd be glad to ride along as DPL.
I'm pretty full up on reading, and I haven't got a good recording set-up at the new place yet. It's going to be a challenge

Hi,

I'd liked to do sections 4,5 & 6 if possible?

This is my first recording. There is a user with a similar username to me, so probably best to have me as Danni Edwards in the Librivox catalogue.

Many thanks
Avi

Wow, such impressive reading :clap:
They are all PL OK, except that 1 and 3 come in a little above the upper volume threshold of 92dB. If you could adjust them down a couple of decibels, that would be great

Looking forward to your next recording!
