Uploaded chapter 3, ready for listening. Will begin chapter 2.

Sorry for the delay in PL'ing this. Life got in the way and I didn't have access to an actual computer.

Chapter 3 is PL OK! The performance in this one was great! So many unique and interesting character voices! :clap:

I do have one small and nitpicky comment though: in the beginning intro, you say "Chapter number 3 of Black'erchief Dick". The "number" isn't necessary, and generally readers will just say "Chapter 3 of Black'erchief Dick". This is not something that needs to be fixed for this file, it's just something to keep in mind for future chapters.

I look forward to hearing what you do for chapter 2!

Are you sure? Cutting one word wouldn't take much effort.

I've got the rough recording done for 2, will take some time over the next couple days smoothing it. Once it's uploaded, would it be too greedy to work on other chapters? This is a lively little story.

You are certainly welcome to fix it if you so choose, and it would be appreciated. What I meant was simply that it isn't something that needs to be fixed in this file if you would prefer to move on to something else.

It certainly would not be too greedy to work on other chapters. You are free to sign up for as many chapters as you want in any book on LibriVox. The only real rule, as far as I'm aware, is that you need to finish a recording within 2 months of signing up for it, so you shouldn't sign up for more than you can do in 2 months. Go ahead and record as many chapters as you want/can! :thumbs:

That said, this is mleigh's project, so they have final say if for some reason they disagree with the rules as I've described here.

I certainly have no problem with you reading more chapters. I am glad you are enjoying reading it. Just let me know what chapters you would like.

Thanks,

Exactly the same file, with the single word cut, but you might want to give it a listen anyway.

Started editing chapter 2, and wouldn't you know it, I did exactly the same thing there, too!

I've come accross a number of readers who always say "chapter number 3" and vary the wording slightly in the disclaimer so I never regarded it as a problem as long as the meaning was the same. And someone of them have been doing it since my first try at being a dpl. :D . So I wouldn't pick up on any variations that don't change the meaning.

Duly noted. I'm still getting used to what is and isn't a problem / worth mentioning. :lol: Thanks for clarifying!

As for comments, I don't have too much to say. It sounds great, both in terms of performance and audio quality. :thumbs:

Chapter 2 is ready for a listen: https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/blackerchiefdick_02_allingham_128kb.mp3

And I can take on the next open chapter. I think that's 5?

I have one small note from PL:

At 9:51: The line "...and Hal after her." is repeated. Please edit out one of the takes of that line and leave your best one.

Besides that, everything is great as always. I love how you play the dynamic between Hal and Anny! :D
