The Pride of Jennico by Egerton Castle (1858 - 1920).


Project has been adopted as a solo.


Quote:
"The death of a patriarch, unexpected inheritance of a second son, dark and stormy castle, faithful retainers, scary governess who never speaks, star-crossed lovers -- I could go on, but that would involve spoilers! All you'd want and expect from a gothic romance. One more thing -- real men do cry!"

(summary by sylviamb)






    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/51238
    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!

    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

Absolutely!
I'll add you as BC.
As a soloist, for the 2nd and subsequent chapters, you can use the shortened intro.:

"Chapter [number] of The Pride of Jennico by Egerton Castle. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Only if applicable, say:
"[Chapter ]"

Okay, let's get started with this ridiculously long chapter.

Section 1 Time 28:38
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/prideofjennico_01_castle_128kb.mp3

I'm having a lot of fun with the old uncle's way of speaking, considering that the nephew says he doesn't even know what language the old fellow speaks. That gives me plenty of leeway to do what I want with his accent. Fun times :D

Thank you, but no panic (one admin can 'steal' files from another, so I could either have just transferred it in the back office, or even just left it there -- which would just have the effect of confusing Ann and me both :lol: :lol: )
