The Man-Hunt of Mendocino, by Frank Bailey Millard / Silas Bartle's Snake-Bite Cure, by Winthrop Packard / Tunnel Number Six, by Eugene C. Derby / An Old Maid's Wedding Trip, by Juliet Wilbor Tompkins / The Official Report, by Thaddeus M. Lakewood (Summary by Sonia)

Hi, Sonia.

How are you? I'd like to claim An Old Maid's Wedding Trip. I'm starting to get back into LV. Hopefully, the section will turn out well.
Thanks, SaraHale. :D
Constructive criticism is always welcome. :thumbs:

you may, thank you :) Great to have a new voice in this project as well. 8-) I hope you enjoy the section. It sounds like it's got a western theme, but I may be misled by the title.

hello and welcome to the forum, and especially to the Black Cat project 8-) Always happy to hear new voices in this magazine.

I see you already started with the one-minute-test :thumbs: excellent, however please check out Jo's feedback on some technical issues and reupload a corrected version before you start working on this section. viewtopic.php?p=1999869#p1999869

As soon as the test is ok, I will officially assign you the section, please let me know what reader name you want to go by, can be your forum name or real name, or anything else you like. Then I'll open your personal reader page for you and you can start recording your first section. The section is now reserved for you, that means we are fully claimed and moving over to Readers Found.

Good luck with the test, and I hope to hear you soon. Thank you for claiming.
