  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

I had trouble uploading this morning. Ch 1 is there now.
I hole to get the titles in this evening.
Right now, my 8yo wants to play Monopoly.

Enjoy!

Ch 2 is ready.
I didn't realize Pat Malone was going to be such a big part.
He's a bit of a challenge.
I think this will be a fun trip.

Chapter 2:
9:46 – word change – “It listens good to me, seeing that Main trip is off,” sail Hal promptly.
Recorded as loosens

Chapter 3 is PL OK!


This sounds as if it's going to be a great little story. I've forgotten, are there more after this one?

Thank Linny,
I think I'll leave it. I actually did say listens, but it's pushed together and in Hal's bottom-of-the-throat voice.
There is one more after this: in a Trapper's Camp. That's in Gutenberg also.

These are a lot of fun to do, that's for sure!
