Okay, I think I’m back in a place where I can begin production on The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and finish the story. There are still 8 hours to record, so it will take a while, but it is happening.

I’m going to try a new thing, though. I’m going to wait until it’s totally complete, and then send out a link to a free copy in one email to all of the current Classic Tales supporters. I will not announce when this will happen, and it will be a one-time type of situation. 

So if you’ve let your membership lapse for whatever reason, It’s time to get back in the game. Thank you so much for your support.

And now, The Importance of Being Earnest, Part 4 of 4, by Oscar Wilde.
