The song was surprisingly tricky, haha! Reprising this role was really fun, thanks Twinkle for giving me this opportunity. :9: (Not saying goodbye yet though, bc knowing me I probably have a few PL notes I've missed :lol: )

Thank you so much for reading! Even for a main character, Rebecca seemed to have a LOT of lines! So thanks for getting them all read so promptly! :)

PL note for Rebecca Chronicle Eleven:

@ 1:59 Repeated word: "On a wealthier suitor your hand."

Wonderful acting! :clap:

Is this ok? After the cut there's a beat missing from the song but since I'm doing it acapella it might be okay? If it sounds too funky I can redo it.

I'm still here! Glad to see the book has been ticking along. The final version of chapter 4 is PL OK :clap:

Can I read Candace in chapter 2? Also is there sheet music for the part she sings? Or is there another way I would learn the melody?

Well, I added a little space in between "suitor" and "your," so it has the right beat. But let me know if you're okay with how it sounds (@ 1:59):

Chapter 8 sounds really, good Bhavya! :clap: I have just a few notes (most being very nitpicky -- sorry :oops: ):

Mr. Adam Ladd sounds a little soft to me. Could you up the volume of each of his lines a couple decibels? The time stamps are:
@ 20:45
@ 21:11
@ 21:20
@ 21:37
@ 21:40
@ 21:44
@ 21:49
@ 22:36
@ 22:40
@ 22:51
@ 23:00
@ 23:05
@ 23:18
@ 24:04
@ 24:22
@ 25:55
@ 26:13

@ 22:45 - Could you shorten the pause between the lines "...ride up to the brick house on my snow white--" and "Coal black," so it sounds more like an interruption?

@ 22:02 - The line here should be: "I need a wedding ring dreadfully,"

@ 21:47 - The line here should be: "Then, dear Mr. Aladdin, would you buy me something different..."

@ 16:25 - Could you add just a little more space in between the lines "...won't she?" and "I don't know"?

Also, the file name should be newchronicles_08_wiggin_128kb.mp3.

Hooray! Thank you! :) I'll sign you up.

I have gone ahead and OK'ed your 1-Minute test, so you are ready to record.

Instructions for the songs are in the script. You'll see that links to sheet music are located just above Candace's singing lines. (One or two of these lines do not have sheet music links, but they are the same tune as the ones that do, as you'll find when listening to the sing-along audio.)

Also, what would you like your catalog name to be? That's the part where you say, "Candace Miliken, read by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, or something different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio files. Also, if you'd like a link to a personal website or blog to be included on your catalog page, just let me know.

And if you have any more questions, please ask! :)
