Thank you so much, again, for bringing your Dublin accent for Lizzie! Your reading of her is perfection - it couldn't be any smidge better as a pairing with Ciufi's Cornelia :)

Ch. 2 and Ch. 3 PL OK :thumbs: :thumbs:

We do need the ALL lines from you, though - just put them at the front of your next file. :) Here they are:

ALL lines:

“Get him! Get him! Get him! Get him!” (use a relaxed Get’im approach)

And a little more urgently: “Get him! Get him! Get him!” (enunciate both words)

Thanks for including me in this project, it was so much fun to do, I had to go watch the movie with Vincent Price to find out more about the story which helped alot. I'm trying really hard to get into character when I do these reads, but sometimes I'm afraid it might sound fake. Hoping to get better as I do other roles in the future!

You know, we really are fortunate with the set of voices coming together on this project! Thank you for your Most Excellent reading of Fleming. :)

Ch. 9 PL OK :thumbs:

Hey- your accent would be wonderful in the Andrew the Glad project, if you enjoyed doing some dramatic reading here.

Ciufi, sorry to take so long getting here! I can't wait until we can start putting some of these chapters together. You and Jennifer have the most fantabulous thing going with the Cornelia and Lizzie roles. :)

Your recording for this chapter is flawless, but despite 3 proofreads, I missed one of Cornelia's lines when I scripted the chapter. Would have helped if it wasn't missing it's quote marks. . .

Would you mind, terribly, inserting the line at 8:25? Following ("How lovely she looks in that evening wrap") and some space, we should have:

"But how tired, too. I wish I knew what was worrying her."

No problem at all! But my dining room is full of quilt ladies at the moment, so I will have to do that when the house is quieter. :D
In the meantime, here is chapter 6 (8:31):

Oh! Are you a quilter, too? :) I just finished making some swan blocks and will put that top together this weekend. It will be a throw quilt for my bedroom. I also need to do the quilting on our daughter's quilt for grad school graduation. I've been letting it intimidate me for a while, using LibriVox work to procrastinate the figuring-out part for the quilting plan. :lol:

Cornelia chapter 6 is PL OK, by the way. :thumbs:
