Copyright Infringment: Keeping It Legal

Posted by in Gay Authors News, in Writing Tips 23 July 2014 - - - - - - · 257 views

Every once in a while I like to take a look through the blog to see what has been used before that could be useful to some of the newer authors here on Gay Authors. Back in October 2012, Sara Alva (known then as KingdombytheSea) shared her experience with using song lyrics in her story Social Skills. Many authors use song lyrics in their stories without...

Redwood Highway

Posted by in jamessavik's Blog, 24 July 2014 - - - - - - · 23 views

One of the places you must see before you die is a highway in Oregon and Northern California called the Redwood Highway.

US 199 runs from Grant's Pass Oregon to Crescent City, CA and points south. It's a frikkin magic ride that takes you past crystal clear rivers running to the sea through canyons that they have cut over the eons. Those valleys are fille...

Trials and Tribulations

Posted by in Billy Martin's Blog, 23 July 2014 - * * * * * · 104 views

Trials and Tribulations I have decided to end Trials and Tribulations Book 1 The Beginning with chapter 26, Family. I will be taking some time off and then begin the second book, yet to be named.

Thank you everyone that ever wrote me, commented on a chapter, and/or left a review. I never expected to have a story of mine to be so well received by so many of you. I truly look...

Why Do We Love Stories?

Posted by in The Rossford Blog, 23 July 2014 - - - - - - · 36 views
stories, rossford

In the world of my imagination people say witty things and ask probing questions, but in reality this is not often the case, and when a pointed question is asked, it happens when I am thinking: Damn, if only you had asked me two hours ago when I was much more awake than I am, or much more sober. That is what happened the other night when, visiting a frien...

Short Story Anthology Release

Posted by in Wolf At The Keyboard, 22 July 2014 - - - - - - · 75 views

Short Story Anthology Release Evening y'all,

I am delighted to announce that I have/about to have, a second short story published exclusively by House of Erotica.

The story is Limelight and Gin : Ruby Rose is the hottest jazz singer in town, and Eugene loves working for her as a backing dancer. He likes the limelight, the bootleg gin, and he's slightly jealous that it's only...

My beef with NA/AA

Posted by in Arpeggio's Blog, 22 July 2014 - * * * * * · 126 views

It's no secret that I'm a drug addict, and I've been going to Narcotics Anonymous for a couple of years now, but I finally decided to stop going because it just doesn't work for an atheist. The whole system is flawed. I tried just about everything including alternating my "higher power" to something other than God, yet, they still shove God down my throat...

Gay Themed Movie "Juste Une Question d'amour" Review

Posted by in Life is worth an entry, 20 July 2014 - * * * * * · 78 views

I love french films; their movies provide great characters and intricate plots.

Here is the simple plot:

Laurent is a closeted gay boy attending college and studying agricultural engineering. His family is deeply homophobic and have inclinations toward exiling gay family members, like Laurent's dead cousin Marc, who died of Hepatitis (probably not from...

A Monty Python World - Wensleydale, anyone..?

Posted by in Fortune and Mens Eyes, 20 July 2014 - - - - - - · 62 views

Ok. It's a classic sketch of TV comedy. John Cleese walks into a cheese monger's shop and wants to buy some 'cheesy comestibles.' To his surprise, no matter how many types of clotted and aged dairy foods of the cheese kind he names, the shop is out.

At one point Cleese kisses his fingertips and cries out "Vive...

Some Apologies

Posted by in Wayne's Updates, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 88 views

I have to apologize to a few people. I am sorry this week has been a total disaster and I haven't been able to keep up as I should.

Monday - I really wasn't out to let people know, but my father was in the hospital for tests. There was a concern about some growths found which biopsies had to be done. Good news is that it wasn't cancer, but it was a nerve...

Just Life

Posted by in joann414's Blog, 18 July 2014 - - - - - - · 86 views

You know? I guess I should feel fortunate to have an interesting and progressive life. We had a disgruntled employee threaten to burn the plant down this week. We went on lock down. The local law enforcement visited us many times, and I actually had a pistol in my cradenza. So yeah, life goes on. Ok, so far.

My funny this week was my homophobic super...

Q Tips # 35 - The Look

Posted by in carringtonrj's Blog, 17 July 2014 - - - - - - · 33 views

Catch sight of yourself in the mirror from the right angle and you might not know if you are a boy or a girl: you queer yourself with a strange look. It happens to me sometimes, and I feel vibrant, elated, full of conquesting triumph. The rest of the day is a surge of pure self-confidence, after a moment like that. I feel sexy as hell, and that works its...

An Unfortunate Update

Posted by in trackstar195's Blog, 12 July 2014 - * * * * * · 176 views

Dear friends,

I'm sad to report that, with a mere 3 weeks of training remaining, I was dropped from the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School. While, at the end, I was training at a level even with, or above, most other candidates, my performances in the beginning suffered greatly from an overall lack of military knowledge and familiarity, and my over...

The world stil has a long way to go.

Posted by in WestcliffWriter's Blog, 10 July 2014 - - - - - - · 64 views

We've come a long way in our attitudes to LGBT people in most countries and it still saddens me that so many young boys and girls continue to be kicked out of there family home for the sake of who they happen to be attracted too.

For many people, their friends, but mostly their family seem to cause such heartache to them, more so than the person on the s...

The Unsolvable Riddle

Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, a reporter and lawyer, began writing a series of tracts which when finished in 1879 was called “The Riddle of Man-Manly Love.” In these booklets, he discusses the nature of sexuality including the innate quality of some men to love other men exclusively. As with Karl Kertbeny, Ulrichs wasn’t happy with the co...

Vacation and then my return to work

Posted by in Random Thought's, 07 July 2014 - - - - - - · 67 views

I finally took a vacation (if you call visiting family that). First real time off since moving here... yeah so 8 months in the making.

My flight left early due to incoming severe storms and all 15 of us were there early. We loaded quickly and were in the air before the storm moved in. I guess its good that the Des Moines airport is so small and my flight...

European Odyssey 2014

Posted by in The River Song, 06 July 2014 - - - - - - · 91 views

Phew. I'm exhausted. Right now, I am typing from our bed at Paya's mother's house, recovering from 4 hours of travel up through slovakia and into the Czech Republic, but this is but the latest in a long line of journeys over the last week or so.

We arrived just less than a fortnight ago from London having decided that the best use of our financial resour...

My Problem with Writing Right Now

Posted by in The Fantastic Mr. Wilde, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 130 views

When you've been depressed for a while, and you've found writing really hard, getting back into it can be a bit of a challenge. I'm feeling a lot better now. Going to school to study sound engineering this autumn, and it feels like my life is back on some kind of track. But the writing is still difficult.

The problem is that I have lots of ideas, and I w...

My Supervisor Had One Crazy Paranormal Experience As A Teenager

Posted by in Methodwriter85's Blog, 04 July 2014 - - - - - - · 39 views

I've been working as an intern in a museum with my supervisor, Katie, for the past couple of weeks. Today, we had a discussion that turned into the paranormal, and she told me about something that happened when she was a teenager. She tries to debunk crazy things that have happened, but this is one she hasn't been able to do.
It was the summer after she g...

2014 Fall Anthology: Scars *Getting Started*

Posted by in Anthology News, 28 June 2014 - - - - - - · 69 views

Now that the Summer Anthology: The Backup Plan has gone live, it’s time to look towards the upcoming 2014 Fall Anthology: Scars.

I thought it might be a good idea to share some thoughts on getting started with your next anthology story, if you haven’t already done so.

Have you thought about the plot for your story? The topic “Scars” can lead in so many...


Posted by in Menace Years, 28 June 2014 - * * * * * · 102 views

It's been a few weeks since I've turned eighteen. Metamorphosing from teen to adulthood was kind of scary when I thought about it. But I'm more scared of being an adult.

Under my sugarcoated happiness and weirdness, I have fears of things that it's sometimes stupid and childish at most but also maybe it's because I'm having an early mid-life crisis.
