Weekly Wrap Up!

Posted by , in Weekly Update 24 June 2012 · 552 views

Have you been enjoying the latest anthology, Choices? The next anthology is a big one - "Secrets Can Kill" is not only a Novella Anthology, but also will be celebrating 10 years of GayAuthors.Org! Full details on the specifications for the anthology can be found here. For those that don't want to click, the baseline requirements are:

1. Firm Minimum: 20,000 words
2. Firm Maximum: 75,000 words
3. Suggested Length: 30,000 to 50,000 words
4. Format: standard formatting only please, anthologies are skinned.

Our past novella collections have been wonderful and I can't wait to see what people come up with this time!


Our week started with a review of Ben by Hosted Author (and Cliffhanger King Emeritus) C James. Ben is a short story spin-off of Circumnavigation and Renee Steven's review gives a good glimpse of this story.

This was followed by the second of our two-part series on Publishing. K.C. helped us a great deal in doing the interviews and presenting the information in a very informative piece.

Mid-week we looked at our Author Showcase - this week was Life by Promising Author Jian Sierra and Author Mark92's Another Fairy Story.

Our Tip Thursday was part one of a two-part series on Getting in the Mood - a look at how various authors get into the mood when they write. Pretty fascinating so far looking at the different ways that some authors prepare to write.

ComicFan provided us with the usual great prompts. this time in addition to a situational "The Family Get-together", he also provided a bit more unusual one in "The Sketch". I am looking forward to seeing the results of how authors approach these prompts.

Ending the week, we looked back at a November 2006 GA Newsletter entry by AFriendlyFace on Sequels.

That was our week - hope yours has been great!

GA was started on July 28, 2003. Nine years.

But what's a year between friends?
The forums were started on July 28, 2003. The site itself went into service on September 22, 2002. The first snapshot in the Wayback Machine was November 2002.

And the site was actually registered on September 13, 2002. As you can see here: http://www.dnsstuff....&toolType=whois

just saying...
AH! OK! I wasn't aware of the earlier registration. Just knew when the forums began and assumed that that was the start of GA. It was about 6 months later when I became a member. Other than yourself, Bill W, Comicality, and occasionally Kyle, I never seem to see any of the other early members (the first 100) on site.

Anyhow, not important, just a bit of nostalgia for some of the old places that we hung out that no longer exist for one reason or another. :)

Thanks for the link, Myr, it was nice to have a snapshot of GA through the years.
So great to see the old-look site Myr.
