Section 36, The Bushy Bride.
I'd love to claim this section if I may.
This would be my first recording other than my test :)

That would be fine. Glad to have you make your LV debut here.

I've assigned this section to you, but please let me know how you would like to be listed in the LV catalog - real name, pseudonym or any nickname you wish. This is how you will be credited for all of your LV work.

Forgive me if this is not the correct way to go about this but I can't figure out if there's a way to directly reply to a reply other than private messaging someone so I assumed replying here would be okay?
For attribution if I could go by Jess A Theron that would be Ideal, thank you!
I'm so excited to start recording!

All I can say is that if you continue to read sections like you read this one, wow! That was a surprisingly good effort.

Can't wait to hear more from you.

Now listed as PL OK in the Magic Window.

With pleasure -- especially after reading Lomond's report! :)

Just a tip -- it makes it easier for us if you request by, or include, the section number.

Thank you!
I'll let Lomond judge your performance. :)
And, I've put you in for 25, but 36 has already been claimed and assigned.
And, this actually is the last section to be claimed, so we are fully subscribed for the moment.

Stay tuned, though, in case there are abandoned sections.

The way you did it is fine! If you do want to make more of a targeted response (I'm not sure if it counts as what you'd call a "direct reply"), you can do what I've done here. Click the little quotation mark icon in the top corner of the post you want to respond to. Then that post will be embedded in yours, and you can type your response below it, just as I've done here. Most of the time, quoting a post like this will send that person a notification. (But not always. It depends on their settings. The default setting, if I recall correctly, is to notify. But some people may choose to turn that off.)

Welcome to LibriVox! :D

I guess I am a bit confused by this section:

Is it to be treated like a play with only the lines to be read and not the name of the character, i.e. hen and cock?

If that is the case, then I would have benefited from more distinction between the voices.

SmilingJade, do you have someone with a deeper voice that could read the lines of the cock?

If the character names are to be read, then all that needs to be done for this to be PL OK is for the word "Hen" to be inserted before the first line.

Silverquill, your thoughts?

Good question....I am relatively new to this...so I have my husband that can read the male voice.
Hence, not sure how to handle that...

Please advise if I need to redo or you are specifically looking for someone else and I will gladly bow out.

Thanks.
