The Alpine Path: The Story of my Career by Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874 - 1942).

This is an abandoned solo, adopted as a group project by TriciaG.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-alpine-path-the-story-of-my-career-by-lucy-maud-montgomery/
L.M. Montgomery's autobiography highlighting her early childhood and literary career. Published in 1917 after she had written several novels. ( Carolyn Agee)
  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. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/alpinepathstory00montgoog
  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.
  6. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): 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!

Hi,

I started this project in late September. I can't remember who my MC and DPLs were (sorry, I'm really bad at names IRL, screen names are even harder)... :help:

OK Carolyn, here we are, MW is ready for you to fill in.

The system thinks you are a brand new BC, so you will need to go through the process to set up a password again.

Instructions are here:

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

Let me know if you have any trouble. Sorry that you had to restart your solo . . . At this point you are well practiced in setting up a project!

We're all checked in, so I'll move this to going solo, to keep our busy busy launch pad tidy.

My apologies! I have been absolutely swamped with unanticipated life events. I will process the audio on ch. 1 tonight, and if all goes well upload ch. 2 next week!

Sorry, technical difficulties on my end. Very nearly done with the first chapter, though I may need to re-record 2 minutes. My goal is to have it uploaded tomorrow night and then record the rest of the sections by the end of the month.

Okay! I think I finally have the hang of things! Whew! The editing for the first chapter is finished, aside from 30 seconds I need to re-record. It must wait until morning as my neighbours are being too loud to record, just now! It will defintely be uploaded tomorrow! :clap:
