Aaron, I'm so sorry I haven't gotten to PLing yet--things have been a bit hectic and I was stuck without headphones for a bit. Will get to it soon, I promise!

No problem at all!

Hello All - Here is Zeus.
A super fun part to play.

At the beginning of his long dialogue explaining his story to the Gods, I sound tentative and stumbling. That is intentional, as the notes indicate that he made an error near the beginning, so I had him work to build up his steam again.

Thanks for putting this together - a great reading!


Aaron
A marvellous reading Aaron, that is completely how Zeus would have sounded in my head too! I love his pomp and arrogance, coupled with doubt and grumpiness :lol:

Great job, and absolutely PL OK! :thumbs: I already can't wait to hear all of it together!

If you'd like to play more Zeus... there are two small parts of Zeus left in Dialogues of the Gods ;)

Question:

Hi - I'm prepping to read Hera. This is the first LibriVox reading I've done that includes footnotes within the text I'll be reading. I'm assuming that what I read aloud will not include those references. Am I right?

Yes that is correct, no need to include them (as Hera wouldn't be saying them)!
In general, most projects don't expect you to include footnotes; in some cases, it's at the readers discretion (i.e. if you think it's interesting, include it, otherwise not); and then in other cases it is required to include all footnotes (but in this case it is usually specifically mentioned in the first post). Mostly, in drama, no footnotes! :D

That was my instinct - but wanted to check to be sure! Thanks!

This would be my second recording, May I please claim the role of Momus, section 6.
Respectfully,
Thomas
Hi Thomas,
Sorry for overlooking your post! :oops: Yes, you may! :D
If this is your first drama recording: please read all the lines that your character would read in the text, separated by a few seconds of silence (everything together in 1 file). If your speech is interrupted by stage directions, please also leave a similar break between the lines.
For example, if this were your line:
What time is it? (checks watch) We have to get going!
You would need to record "What time is it?" ...[few seconds of silence]... "We have to get going!"

Please also include a voice credit "Momus read by [your name]" at the start of the file.
Good luck, have fun, and let me know if you have any questions!

Hera really is quite fed up with her husband sleeping with all those earthly lovers, isn't she? :lol:

Excellent job, Betsy, and PL OK! :thumbs:

Hello,

You can put me for the role of Poseidon!

Thank you (:

P.S. This is my first time reading a drama. Do I record all my lines in one take or each one individually? I'm sure this is written somewhere but just wanted to be sure!
