Love Stories Volume 2 - pc.

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/love-stories-volume-2/
Here are 20 more love stories under an hour each, covering all kinds of experiences involving romantic or other kinds of love resulting in heartbreak or happiness -- where the heart overflows with passion, pride, emotion or wonder. ( ~ Michele Fry)
  1. There is no need to preclaim. Just record and submit a story (no poems please) with the requested information (see green text below).
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Once your story is submitted, please be on the lookout for your Proof Listeners notes, which if changes are required must be attended to for your story to be included in the catalog.
    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.[/b]

    Level of prooflistening requested: standard
    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening!

    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!

Yesterday I posted a love story to this forum.
This was before there was a MW.
What happened to my submission?
Must I re-upload it?

Your submission is received, and many thanks. But before I add it to the MW and download it to my computer, please reload it without the underlines in the title. This will save some steps and possibly prevent an error down the road.

PL Notes Love on the Bon Dieu

Nice Cajun piece! Thanks, Bill. Kate Chopin is a good story teller.
Problem with Pere Antoine the priest, you say Pierre 10 out of 15 instances. Perhaps you can zoom in and cut out just the eee. Or paste in the correct instances over the wrong ones. If not, it might be better not to edit so many, as those tend to stand out from the rest. Instances are found at:
:31 5:29 6:20 10:28 22:35 23:16 24:36 24:45 27:30 30:09
16:08 he took a short cut, you say cuss
24:47 he would stand boldly and say, you say bodily
