Posted by in Gay Authors News, in Weekly Update 29 March 2015 · 24 views

If you haven't finished yet, there's still time so that you can come and ask Krista your questions at 8pm EDT. Now, let's see what happened in the GA News Blog during this past week.

Monday's featured story was Me...

A Short Break Approaching.

Posted by in WestcliffWriter's Blog, 28 March 2015 · 44 views

I don't know what its like to buy a house in the USA, maybe different states have different rules, but in the UK, its quite frankly a fucking joke. Miles of red tape and bureaucracy just leave you feeling drained, and for any of my UK friends reading this... you know what I mean yeah?

So back in November, my partner and I put an offer in for a house we l...

American Songbook Track List

short stories, collection and 6 more...

In the lead up to what is already being called, in our household, The Big Move, I am focusing on editing and preparing manuscripts, rather than writing. This is because it is hard to write when you feel guilty for not packing your life into boxes, and secondly because whilst Cowboy Summer waits for covers and one last read-through, I have no finished the...

Picking Up Our Shoes and Walking On

Posted by in eon's Blog, 27 March 2015 · 50 views

A wise man told me about life and death. In Vietnam, where he came from, they say that life is suffering, and death is a release from suffering. He didn't celebrate his birthdays, but the anniversary of his ancestors' death.

This is cold comfort, but comfort, nonetheless, when I think of Anuva's crossing. The vet said it was cancer, had metastacized, and...

Outsmarted by a 6 year-old

Posted by in KC's Blog, 27 March 2015 · 118 views

I was babysitting my 6 year-old nephew for a few hours. He watched TV and played Legos while I typed away on my laptop when a new review popped up on one of my stories. I read it and smiled to myself when my nephew suddenly plopped on the couch beside me and asked, “Whatcha doing?”

“I’m answering someone who liked my book.” I turned my laptop and showe...

Law enforcement should not have unions. Or actually, anyone who works in government should not belong to a union. Our government is a powerful entity. Its servants should not band together to amplify that power. Whenever I read a statement from the Policeman's Union, I perform a translation. The Union spokesman states, in translation, "The accused is guil...


Prompt Me!

Posted by in Gay Authors News, 27 March 2015 · 216 views

It's been quite a week, but now we're back to our regularly scheduled blog posts. That means that it's time for a couple of new prompts provided by the prompt guru Comicfan. Don't forget to share your prompt responses in the forum so that maybe yours can be the featured response next week. Also, don't forget that you can post your responses in GA Stori...

Liver transplants!

Posted by in Arpeggio's Blog, 25 March 2015 · 155 views

One of the most paramount achievements of my life was that first six months of sobriety. With it, came the liver transplant that I proudly have maintained staying clean for. It’s been roughly five year, going on six years, since I received this liver, and although I may need another one eventually, I have been relatively healthy since, and I’m satisfied t...

Dear Life.

So, I've been away for a little while in London for the past week. It was so busy! Mikie came to visit me :D

Saturday I picked Mikie up from the airport, then Sunday we went to the Alexander McQueen Exhibit at the V&A Museum, which was really nice :)Monday, we just adventured around London. Tuesday we went for a really nice dinner in a hotel in Knigh...

Show of hands, during the climactic, face-scrunching moment of the sex act, how many of you out there sometimes find yourself thinking, "Gee, I must look pretty silly right about now"? C'mon, be honest... Okay, I understand. This is a little too intimate for a public conversation. How about if we do it this way: If you're alo...

Posted by in 365, 19 March 2015 · 85 views

Well 365 did fail for a myriad of reasons. Some out of my control, some totally in my control and some old issues which were brought in to the light due to the concept. So yes I failed but it wasn't 100% and the large goal of pushing myself to mend broken parts and face new challengs was meet. And I think I may try again this year but the approach must be...

The Top 10 Elements of a Book People Want to Read

Posted by in Stuff from Cia, 17 March 2015 · 83 views

This guest article on Writer's Digest's blog is absolutely wonderful! I can't say enough about how I agree with every single point made!

The Highlights:

1. Your words are your tools; make sure they are in working order.
2. Check for inconsistencies.
3. Avoid overwriting.
4. Avoid underwriting.
5. Make sure your characters are more than a name.
6. Show,...

that 70s trilogy

Posted by in jamessavik's Blog, 16 March 2015 · 69 views

My 70s trilogy is finally complete and it's all hosted here at gayauthors.org

It follows a small group of friends from Mississippi that learn that we need each other, how to be friends and lift each other up.

We weren't saints and all of us got lost along the way at some point. Only together did we find our way.


Music Memories: "Sweet Jane" by Cowboy Junkies

Posted by in Methodwriter85's Blog, 15 March 2015 · 67 views

So I thought I'd try something a little different than my "music playlist" stuff. I thought it might be interesting to highlight a particular song that brings back a very vivid memory. So first up...

Where the &#!* have I been?

Posted by in Mark Arbour's Pride, 11 March 2015 · 345 views

Thanks to those of you who have sent me e-mails, pms, or otherwise showed concern as to where the fuck I’ve been. To answer the first, most obvious question: I’m fine. Life has its challenges, and I have mine, but there’s nothing there that’s debilitating.

There are three major areas of my life that can impact my writing. My health/wellbeing is ob...

March 10, 2015 - Another year

Posted by in Wayne's Updates, 10 March 2015 · 80 views
Mom, Rememberance

Funny, I knew the date and tried hard to put it off. Dad and I just don't talk about it, but he has it worse than I do. Remembering my mother. Today would have been her 75th birthday. He went to bed a few hours ago. I don't think either of us mentioned it at all to each other. I couldn't let the day go without saying something. I posted it on Facebook and...

My uncle passed away on Sunday after a long battle with cancer. He was 69. It's hit me pretty hard, even though we weren't particularly close. In fact, my first memories of him aren't pleasant at all. When I was a kid we lived in a house with an inground pool. I hated that stupid pool. My parents had my brother and I take swimming lessons at the Y b...

Thank You

Posted by in Craftingmom's Blog, 06 March 2015 · 123 views

Yesterday, I went out to Goodreads figuring I would add Tears of the Neko their books list. I went through the whole process to find that some kind soul had already added it! I assume it was probably someone from here as this is where I'm most active, so thank you so very much.

Right now I am working on getting it associated with my account as there...
