Say and Seal by Susan Warner (1819 - 1885).

The arrival of a new schoolteacher causes quite a stir in the small New England town of Pattaquasset, not the least of it in the house of Mrs. Derrick and her daughter, where the young man boards. Mr. Linden's idea of teaching stretches far beyond the dusty walls of his classroom, and he is not slow in finding much work to be done for his Master. The schoolboys are soon captivated by their new teacher, and Miss Faith Derrick quickly joins the ranks of his eager pupils.

But Mr. Linden is not the only man in Pattaquasset who is attracted to the bright young woman, and his rivals have no intention of letting him carry the field unopposed. When perplexities and dangers begin to multiply, will Faith have the strength to stay true to her heart--and to her newfound Lord? (Summary by BookAngel7)
  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/28544
  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

Here as promised! :D

Tiffany, I'll be happy to write up the summary for you. I'll see if I can have it done in a couple of days. :wink:

Just a making sure--is this project only for volume 1? And if so, do we need to add that to the intro/outro?

Also, can you add the _128kb to the filename instructions?

Thanks,

bookAngel7

Hi BookAngel!

Thanks for writing the summary! The bit from the preface is not very descriptive, but that's what I could come up with at the time!

I will make those changes to the first post right away, thanks for pointing them out! :D

BookAngel and I have decided to turn this into a duet, you can leave her in as DPL though cause we will pl each other's chapters! Anything we need to do/change, like the intro?

The only part you would change is the where you say your name but don't do both names for each chapter; each of you just say your name for the chapter you are recording, just like a group project.

After you fill your names in for each chapter in the MW, I will move this to Readers Found.

Is it correct that for a duet we each only need the full intro in our first section (respectively), and after that we can use the shorter intro as in a solo?

Sorry about the delay; been working 12 hours a day, everyday. Yes, you can use the shorter disclaimer for a duet.

Just so you know, my iPad accidentally got wiped, so I lost 3 hours of recordings including chapter 10 :cry: so when I am done my other duet, which is close, I will start at the beggining of this one and record chapter 10 again when I get there! :D

Oh, no! That's terrible! So sorry! :(

By the way, how do you plan to pronounce "Pattaquasset"? I couldn't find any help on the internet, so I thought I'd at least try to keep my pronunciation consistent with yours. :wink:

It is a good reminder not to get attached to Earthly possesions!

I said it phonetically, with all the a's short like pat - a - qua - (like quack) set, but if you think another way is better we can go with that!

Sounds as likely as any other way! I'll use it. :)

One other question that has nothing to do with recording... (I am working on reading, too; honest, I am!) Do you ever create covers for your own books? I've started doing it for some of the projects I've working on and was thinking of volunteering to create this one, but I didn't want to yank it out from under you if it was something you wanted to do. :wink:
