The Little Colonel's Knight Comes Riding by Annie Fellows Johnston (1863 - 1931).

Only recently the maid of honor, now it will be the Little Colonel's turn to be the bride, at least that much of it we can give away! But who will it be? A "Knight Comes Riding" in every chapter, but who will finally measure up to the silver yardstick? Will it be one of our old friends, like Little Knight of Kentucky Malcolm MacIntyre, or perhaps Rob Moore, Alex Shelby, Phil Tremont, Jack Ware . . . they are all in the running! Or maybe it will be a new Knight that comes riding! You'll have to read the story to find out!

When she wrote this, Annie Fellows Johnston intended it to be the conclusion of the Little Colonel series. Of course, as it turned out, that would not be quite true. The stories continued, albeit through a somewhat different perspective, in the Mary Ware series. (Temporary borrowed summary - will be replaced before cataloging!)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/39594
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] of The Little Colonel's Knight Comes Riding. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "The Little Colonel's Knight Comes Riding, by Annie Fellows Johnston. [Chapter]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of The Little Colonel's Knight Comes Riding, by Annie Fellows Johnston. "

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      littlecolonelsknightcomesriding_##_johnston.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. littlecolonelsknightcomesriding_01_johnston.mp3)

I'll take the first two chapters. Would like to do more but probably should finish up my other projects first before taking on more. :P

Thank you, Avocado ~ that would be lovely! You are wise not to overload yourself. Feel free to claim more when you do feel like you have the space! :-)

I will also tentatively take chapters 3 and 4, but I likely won't be able to work on those until mid January. I will provide an update if it looks like I can't take them, but since we have a lot of other chapters unclaimed, thought I might as well.

Sounds good! I don't mind the wait since this one isn't exactly moving fast at this point! :-) Thanks for the heads up - it is appreciated!

This is part of a book series that I have been working on in one way or another since I first started here. So almost seven years on, I'm willing to be patient. :mrgreen:

Here's chapter two ready for PL.

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/littlecolonelsknightcomesriding_02_johnston.mp3 (23:37)

As an FYI for other recorders, based on the text of the book when the characters are first introduced/spelling of the dialogue for Lloyd, I have been using the following sort of voices for the three girls:

Lloyd - based on how the dialogue was written ("ovah" "motha" etc.) somewhat strong Southern accent (not quite Southern Belle, sort of loud drawl actually).

Gay - a sort of high, girlish voice, "proper" (no accent though)

Kitty - almost always excited. Hint of Valley Girl.
