Author Promotions

I'd like to talk about Author Promotion, what it is and how it works.   As hopefully everyone is aware, here at GA we have a number of authors with either the Promising, Signature or Classic status. These are authors that we have "promoted" after a review by the Author Promotion Team (APT). The APT is a group of members whose job is to evaluation authors that have been nominated to see if they're reached the "next level" of writing.   What do Promising, Signature and Classic mean? Well, that's an interesting question in it's own right. The details are to some extent subjective and each member of the APT has their own guidelines that they use but roughly:   Promising Author: An author who has demonstrated a quality above the norm, that shows promise of the sort of writing that we want to showcase at GA. Because they're prominent, we're also looking for a combination of other factors, such as how they interact with their readers, signs that they want to improve, and a willingness to help make GA the place on the Internet for quality gay fiction. We don't expect a Promising author to do all of these things, but we're looking for indications that a Promising Author is going to help promote GA, predominantly through their writing, but maybe through other means, as well.   Signature Author: An author who has demonstrated a high level of craftmanship with their writing. SIgnature Authors can still have areas that they need to improve, but this status is an acknowledgement that the stories they're producing are amongst the best at GA and indeed the Internet overall.   Classic Author: Essentially, a Signature Author that has either retired, or only infrequently publishes new works. Sometimes a new author can become a Classic Author if they're posting their collection of stories previously posted elsewhere.    So how does an author becoming a Promising, Signature or Classic Author? It all starts with a nomination. For various reasons, we only accept nominations via PM, not public posts. If you wish to nominate an author, or even if you want to nominate yourself, send a PM to the APT Lead (currently myself), providing the details of the author you wish to nominate and maybe a comment or two as to why you think that author deserves promotion.   The APT Lead will then schedule a review for that author. Because the members of the APT have other jobs (and are generally authors themselves), and reviewing an author is something that's needs time and effort to do the job properly, we typically only review one author a month. Thus unfortunately means that it can take some time before an author is reviewed, so please be patient.   Reviewing stories is an important task that the APT takes very seriously. Each member of the APT has their own views on the details of what makes a Promising/Signature/Classic Author, which can mean that we end up with a variety of opinons. Reviewing stories and documenting observations, followed up by discussing the differing opinions to come up with a decision, isn't something to be rushed.   The outcome of the review is then shared with the author. This could be an offer for promotion (cue fireworks!), usually to Promising, but occasionally directly to Signature (cue massive fireworks!!!). If an author is not deemed ready for promotion, the APT team will provide some suggestions on areas in which the author needs to improve. Even if an offer is made, the team will usually comment on areas that we feel the author could focus on for improvement. Our goal is, after all, to encourage the authors nominated, as we'd all love to see more Promising and Signature authors.   Once an author has been promoted to Promising, the process doesn't stop there. The APT will also review our current Promising Authors on a semi-regular basis to see if they're ready for promotion to Signature. With reviewing not only new nominations, but existing Promising Authors, and only being able to review one author a month, you can see why the process can take some time. Just be patient; we'll get to everyone eventually.   What are the benefits of becoming a Promising/Signature/Classic Author? There are several benefits to becoming a Gay Authors Promising/Signature/Classic Author. These are: Each Promising Author gets a banner displayed above their stories. The banner size is 848 pixels wide by121 pixels tall. We can create one for you if you like, or you can supply your own. Your name, bio and banner will be listed on our Authors page under your new Author group. Your story updates will be listed in the weekly wrap-up blog. Story topics can be placed in the Promising Authors Discussion Forums. Upon becoming a Signature Author,  your story topics can be placed in the Signature Author Discussion Forums. In some cases, you can also get your own forum, though that usually requires an active fan-base to keep the forum active. Signature Authors with published works, if posting regularly and above a certain word count, can place off-site buy links to their eBooks available for purchase on other sites, such as Amazon. Signature Authors are eligible for extra promotion through periodic featured blogs during our Signature/Classic week each month. Signature Authors may also use individual story banners for their stories, rather than their author banner, if they wish.   What are the responsibilities of the Promising/Signature Authors? What we ask of GA Promising/Signature Authors in return: Post your stories on GA first or concurrently with other sites. If you post on other sites or a personal blog, link back to Gay Authors. Please do not remove your stories from GA for publication elsewhere. Should you later intend your work for publication, your story can be reviewed for possible inclusion in GA's Premium stories section. Actively participate with your readers by answering reviews and being an active member of the site.     I hope this has been informative. Have a look at our existing Signature, Classic and Promising Authors, and then if you know someone you believe can join their ranks, let me know!

Happy 20th Anniversary Comicality!

Instead of the usual Tuesday Tech Blog this week, I'm taking the day to wish my first online author friend a very very happy 20th Anniversary of him posting his stories for us all to enjoy!      On June 19, 1998, 20 years ago today, Comicality posted his first chapter of New Kid In School on Nifty.  https://www.nifty.org/nifty/gay/highschool/new-kid-in-school/ (If you look at chapter 1-2, you'll see the date stamp)   Comicality hooked me right away on his stories.  I emailed him early, and we had a few exchanges.  Eventually, I formed Gay Authors, and I got him as my very first Hosted Author here.  Comicality is, in fact, the only author who still has a hosted site here on Gay Authors.  https://www.gayauthors.org/comicality/   💗💜 Love you Lots Comsie!  💜💗 Thanks for all the great memories for the last 20 years! 🍹 Here is to many, many more! 🍹

Bye For Now & Weekly Wrap Up (May 27 - Jun 2)

Before we even get started with the wrap up, I want to say:   Graeme!!!!!!   Graeme has been a long time member of GA's staff, and has been promoted to Site Administrator as well as Author Promotion Team Leader. We are very happy to have him as part of our team, so please visit the announcement thread to congratulate Graeme on his well deserved promotion!   Now, for some other news. I don't usually use the staff blogs for personal stuff, but the time has come for me to say farewell, for a while at least. Baby J is due in just a few short weeks and, for the next few months, I will be focusing on him and my family. I will be back, but for the time being, the other Admins have graciously agreed to take over my site duties. That's not to say you'll never see me in the online user list, but this will be my last blog post for a while (other than the prompts this Friday which are already scheduled). @wildone will be doing the Weekly Wrap Up for me, while the other Admins will handle the various other blog posts. If you have any questions, please direct them to one of them, otherwise you might be waiting a rather long time for a reply. If you wish to send content in for a blog post, including Improve & Encourage features (which we're currently out of), please send them to one of the other Admins and they'll make sure it gets to the right person for inclusion in the blog. Anything author promotion related, should now be directed to @Graeme.   @Cia has agreed to field any anthology related questions. In case I don't see you for a while, I hope y'all have an awesome summer!!!!! I'm sure mine will be plenty busy .   Now, let's see what happened this week, and if you haven't already checked out the anthologies, please do so!  Please note: The blog opportunities are temporarily shortened, due to the majority of them requiring info from me.   Anthologies 2018 Fall Anthology: Fight Back - Due Nov 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Good Intentions - Due Nov 15th   Blog Opportunities Story Critique: Open to all GA authors. Sign up here.

Weekly Wrap Up (May 20 - May 26)

I hope you all have had a great week this week!  Have you had a chance to check out the Spring Anthology yet? Nine brand new stories for you to sink your teeth into. Before we get started this week, a couple of reminders for you:   Reminder #1: New authors are automatically put into the moderation queue and have to be approved by staff. Please read the FAQ on posting stories prior to uploading your first story. One common mistake new authors to the site make is uploading multiple chapters, if not all, of their story at once. We ask that you please not do this as only one chapter a day will be approved, providing the story meets site quidelines. In the end, it may even make more work for the author if changes are necessary before the chapter can be approved. Once out of the moderation queue, authors can post up to two chapters a day, but those chapters must be spaced at least eight hours apart so as not to flood the story update list.
 
Reminder #2: There are certain perks to being a promoted author here at GA. One of those perks is having your weekly story updates in the Weekly Wrap Up. Please, if you are not a promoted author, refrain from posting your story updates in the comments of the Weekly Wrap Up. We are happy to help you showcase your work in the various GA blogs, all you have to do is sign up for one of the many opportunities that we offer. These can be found in the “Blog Opportunities” section of each Weekly Wrap Up. Otherwise, you are welcome to use status updates, a forum thread (one per story), or even a personal blog to notify readers of updates.       Anthologies 2018 Fall Anthology: Fight Back - Due Nov 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Good Intentions - Due Nov 15th   Blog Opportunities Story Critique: Open to all GA authors. Sign up here.

Weekly Wrap Up (Apr 29 - May 5)

Hope everyone has had a great week!  I have a couple reminders and an announcement, so let's get right into it!!!   Announcement: Keep an eye on your email! Due to the pending GDPR legislation the EU has hit everyone with, GA has to send out a new sign-up form that must be filled out if you wish to continue to get the site newsletter. ALL members who do not fill this out will be unsubscribed based on the legislation that we have no choice but to follow. There will be several reminders and opportunities to sign back up, but we want to warn everyone ahead of time that it's coming just so you're not surprised.    Reminder #1:  Anthology entries are due in to the proof team no later than May 15th!  Time is running out, so get your story sent into Valkyrie as soon as possible!   Reminder #2: @Carlos Hazday is looking for questions for the Ask An Author blog!  Without your questions, he can't keep the feature going, so make sure to send in your questions for your favorite authors. Right now he's especially looking for questions for an Admin & Moderator edition, so if you have a question for an author who just happens to be an Admin or Moderator, make sure to get those to him ASAP!  Admin's and Moderators that have stories on site include: Myr, Cia, A.J., wildone, Renee Stevens, & Graeme. I believe Carlos already has a question for Cia.   I think that's all the announcements and reminders, though I feel like I'm forgetting something. Hopefully not! Now, lets take a look at what happened in the various GA Blogs this week.   Yep! I forgot something!  Have you read the idiom stories that were part of the latest newsletter game?
