If your recording is not completed by the deadline, your claim may be reassigned at the BC's discretion.

New to recording? Please see our Newbie Guide to Recording for further instructions. A quick guide to our required technical settings can be found here. When you post your file, please tell the BC what name you would like to use in our catalog.

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Just waiting for the last few chapters of Billy Mink to come in, so thought we'd start the next book in this series.

Yes, indeed, and you are heartily welcome.
Thank you so much, Adrian.
