I recorded and uploaded an intro/outro/voice credit for the dramatis personae.

Also recorded a couple more chapters. Still need to edit.

PL okay! Chapter 24 - old woman 2 -

Well read, just one note for future reading, this track sounds a little over noise cleaned, no need, in my opinion, to re-record. Again, I loved your Old Woman 2.

Hi WoolyBee,

Bonehead here :oops: : I am confused about precisely what I get to PL and when it will be available. Could you clue me in :?:

Here's Chapter 28. Potential problem, though: Part of the way through, the refrigerator started making a buzzing sound. I thought I'd gotten it out in noise cleaning, but in editing I realized that, alas, it's still there. Let me know what you think. I can re-record a portion (or all) if necessary.

My understanding from Sarah's previous PM to us is that you're PLing all parts and narration for Chapters 7-12. Sarah, is this still correct?

As to when it will be available, that depends on us readers, I guess. :)

OK, Thank you HoosierMary :thumbs: I understand that I get to PL all of the above chapters. And it looks like each role will have one reader who will record a bit from this chapter and a bit from that and so on until their part is completed. Then an editor will put all the parts together into chapters and then the PLing starts. Or do I PL those parts of the submitted recording that are in the above chapters :?:

Still bonehead newbie here :oops: If the PLing was done by part rather than by chapter, would that be easier on the editors or would it make more work for someone to create a document with only one part in it... :idea: :?:

No matter as I look forward to participating in and hearing all this cool stuff regardless.

Yep, this. :) Everything needs to be PLed before editing and then again after. I think Sarah's still looking for someone to PL the completed chapters, but that comes much later down the road.

P.S. And these are not "bonehead" questions. :) This is a huge project, and its size makes it rather confusing.

Here are my recordings!

Gertrude - Chapter 9
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_09_gertrude.flac

I added a line to this one - in a section of narration, Gertrude has a thought in the first person that begins "They will try to force me..." I don't know if you want the narrator to read it, but I thought I'd throw it in just in case! :)

Gertrude - Chapter 10
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_10_gertrude.flac

There's a line in this chapter, "Well, we will speak no more of the past..." that is color-coded for Gertrude, but I'm pretty sure it's her father, so I didn't record it. Let me know if you need it though!

Gertrude - Chapter 20
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_20_gertrude.flac

There is a line that Gertrude says to Lucy, but it's in the third person. I wasn't sure if you wanted it that way, or if you wanted a more natural-sounding second person, so I put in both versions.

Martha - Chapter 21
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_21_martha.flac

The Widow - Chapter 35
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_35_widow.flac

The Widow - Chapter 37
https://librivox.org/uploads/kilteddragon/betrothed_37_widow.flac

I tried to do an Italian accent for the Widow, but if it sounds ridiculous (and a little Russian? not sure what was going on there, haha) I'd be happy to redo it :)

Thanks so much!
Sarah
