Here's Chapter 29 after a long break from recording:

Thanks!
Just one thing - you named the chapter
christmasbookofchristmasstories_29_dickinson_128kb.mp3
while it should have been
childrensbookofchristmasstories_29_dickinson_128kb.mp3

Will you please rename the file on your computer and upload it again? Then - after a spot check - it will be OK.
Phil will get yet another file under the wrong filename to clear away when it's time to publish the book.

So you know, your volume was near the lower LibriVox limit, so you can record future chapters a bit louder.
Oh my, how did I not catch that? Thanks for letting me know. Here's the updated version with the correct file name(hopefully)

Shriya -

All's well now. Chapter 29 - Christmas Under the Snow - PL OK. The filename is fixed in the Magic Window as well.

And thank YOU.

Kenny -
Just as in "Jimmy Scarecrow's Christmas" (chapter 11), the filename you used is missing the 't' in Christmas.

In this chapter you need to read the author's name at the ending of the intoduction - so you would read:

"Chapter 35 - Christmas on Big Rattle, by Theodore Goodridge Roberts."

Can you add the author's name, change the filename, and upload it again, please.
Yep I can do that! give me a couple days

Hello, here are my edited chapters 11 and 35 with the correct file name this time and the author's name in chapter 35! let me know if I need to change anything else, I believe these were the only two things :)

Chapter 35: 9:51 minutes long.

Chapter 35 - Christmas on Big Rattle - PL OK. Slipping the author's name in there worked just fine; a good edit, thank you.

I realize I should have asked you to read the chapter author for Chapter 11 (Jimmy Scarecrow's Christmas) as well, so the introduction will include:
The Children's Book of Christmas Stories, by Asa Don Dickinson.
Chapter 11 - Jimmy Scarecrow's Christmas, by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman.
Sorry I didn't call that out before.

Happy Saturday,

I've uploaded chapter 31. Hope all is okay! I'm afraid, being a coward, I read, rather than sang the carol.

Hi Lou -
I’m about to head out for a walk in the park - it’s the last nice day forecast for a while - and will PL this chapter in a while. Spoken rather than sung is just fine.

Thank goodness, I had my daughter on standby with bribes but she wasn't too fussed! :lol:

Chapter 31 - Master Sandy's Snapdragon - PL OK (and a lesson about 1600s Great Britain for me).

No bribe needed!
