Hope I didn't mess up the template too awfully much!

Just for the knowledge of whoever MCs this, I've got the Prologue, and Chapters I and II recorded already, I just need to edit and submit them.

Woo woo!

Calling dibs ... will be back to do the setup later today!

[Translated by [translator <- Is this me?]]

No, that'd be if you were reading Verne or suchlike -- you'd need to credit the French -> English text translator. :D

Haha yeah that makes enough sense! Didn't know if it was that or if it was perhaps translation from text to ebook, or ebook to audiobook or something crazy like that. :]
