The Fanatics by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872 - 1906).
This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/the-fanatics-by-paul-laurence-dunbar/
This is a story about a town in Ohio during the civil war. The town is divided by ideology, but can they be united by love and respect? ( Stav Nisser.)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/fanatics00dunbgoog
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

Sophia, I listened to the beginning of chapter 1. You have a lovely reading voice. Only one small note about the intro:
"chapter one of the Fanatics. This is a librivox recording, all librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more informations or to volunteer please visit librivox.org. Chapter one: Love and Politics".
Please do not eddet chapter one yet before someone else gives listens to the whole file. But remember to repeate the chapter number in the intro to chapter 2.

Hello! I made the edit to the intro when I did the Chapter 2!
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/fanatics_2_dunbar_128kb.mp3
There was a word said 3 times in the transcript that isn't politically correct nor okay to say in this day and age so I skipped over it.
Length: (11:15)

Sorry, Sophia, but you have to say that word. We record what is written in the text, not what is ok or not ok to say today. We cannot ulter the text. If you feel uncomfortable with that let me know and I will give the chapter to someone else.

I am sorry I have to be tuff on that. This is the librivox policy. It's ok not to record everything, but you have to make a sound choice.
