for podficcing

Newbie, needing assistance please

 Hi there, everyone.
 I first discovered this com by accident about a year ago, and did the lurking/secret-sneaky-downloading-of-podfics thing for a while. I've branched out, however, into the more proactive field of actually making a podfic. I'm new to this recording-a-podfic thing, and while I have two bitty pieces of podfic recorded (and a two-hour-extravaganza in the works, now that I know how to turn on GarageBand), I'm not entirely sure what to do with them now. How do I go about posting them to the interwebz, so that people other than my sister can hear them? What's the format for this com? Any technical stuff I need to know? I'm so impressed by everyone's work here - I only hope my seven-minutes-and-steadily-growing catalogue of podfic can stand up in comparison! Please and thank you in advance for any advice...

P.S. - Did I mention my super-newness to all things even slightly technical? I hope I put the right tags on this...

Two due South podfics, one Wilby Wonderful

Title: The Reaching Out One
Author: alex51324
Reader: luzula
Fandom: due South
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski
Rating: NC-17
Length: 6 h 10 m 35 s
Author's summary: It's ten years after the events of CoTW (in other words, the present day). After the Quest, Fraser and Ray went back to their regular lives--Fraser as a Mountie in Deline, NWT and Ray as a detective in Chicago, IL. Every year they take their vacation time together and look for the hand of Franklin, the reaching out one, and when they run out of time they put a pin in the map and the next year they pick up where they left off. The story begins when Diefenbaker dies and the whole house of cards crumbles. Ray and Fraser have an adventure, confront their feelings, and rebuild their lives on a more solid foundation.

Notes: This is a post-CotW story that feels fresh and new, and I love it to pieces. I'm afraid the recording is a bit uneven, though. I first started it back in October last year, but then I had a cold that lasted for five months, and then came Amplificathon. Now that I listen to the bits I did last fall, I notice that my reading style has changed, partly because of taking singing lessons, and partly because I've speeded up a bit. Also, I've been moving around, so there are different acoustics in different parts of the story. But I don't seem to have the energy to re-record the first half (especially since I already had to do some re-recording because of lost files). I hope you enjoy it anyway. Whew, this was a long project. Thanks to the author for letting me record it!

Download part one and part two at Sendspace. (It's in eight mp3 files, but I can't upload it all in one zip file--it's too big.)


Title: Sixteenth of June
Author: resonant8
Reader: luzula
Fandom: due South
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski
Rating: NC-17
Length: 1 h 14 m 26 s
Author's summary: Fraser keeps an eye on Ray for signs of a broken heart.
Notes: This one's a classic. I think the part I enjoyed most here was doing an impression of Bob Fraser singing "Danny Boy" pitched too high for his voice. *g* Thanks to the author for the blanket permission!

Title: Quiet In Drowning
Author: nos4a2no9
Reader: luzula
Fandom: Wilby Wonderful
Characters: Duck, Buddy, OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Length: 57 m 07 s
Author's warning: This story contains graphic, violent and disturbing subject matter, including non-con.
Author's summary: It rained the morning Duck McDonald left home.
Notes: This is not exactly a happy story, but there's hope at the end, and I can imagine that something like this did happen to Duck. I hope I did it justice. Thanks to the author for letting me record it!
