The Red Cross Girls in Belgium by Margaret Vandercook (1877 - 1958).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/the-red-cross-girls-in-belgium-by-margaret-vandercook/

Volunteers outside the USA: Margaret Vandercook died in 1958. Her work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years and Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).
Four young American women have joined the Allied forces under WWI. In this volume of the series they are in Belgium, and they are dealing with the mysterious past of one of the girls, the possible romance between a French Count and another of the girls (a selfprofessed "old maid") and Belgian children and other civilians ( kathrinee)
    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/53730
    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!

      ============================================
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] of The Red Cross Girls in Belgium. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "The Red Cross Girls in Belgium, by Margaret Vandercook. [Chapter title]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Chapter [#]"

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?

Kathrine,
Such a delightful start of the story. Chapter 1 is PL OK!

I don't PL for you often but every time I do your voice sounds so comforting and familiar.

Enjoy your project!

I love to read, AND my employer matches my volunteer hours with a donation to the Internet Archive, flagged to benefit Librivox.org. How cool is that?
