  1. Everyday I write 'lil q a note to put in her lunch box.  Today she wrote me one. :heart:

      Sorta, but not really. I'm locking it in my desk at the end of each day. It shall never see the inside of my home.  In truth it will make me less accessible because I won't be giving out my personal number to the cops anymore so when they call it will go to voice mail :P

      Sounds like a plan.

    Near the finish line

    After all those years of soccer and baseball/softball, my foot is messed up. I've had minor surgery and now have orthotics, so my running has been seriously curtailed. I'm living proof that you can 'be in shape' (I work with a trainer) and not be in shape. Running this pain free was the highlight, but being honest, my heart rate got a bit jacked even from this tiny run, so yeah, more work is needed for me. As for her, well we hadn't reached the halfway point and she wanted to know how much further. lol BUT, she ran it so now she knows she can and wants to it again, so major success all around.

    Pre-race with Papa.

    She is light years cuter than her Papa and I'm good with that.

    Pre-race with Papa.

    I never noticed, but yeah I see it now. She makes me smile, so maybe that's it.

    Near the finish line

    I don't think there was any doubt she would - me? Well let's just say I haven't been able to run for a couple of years. It was touch and go for a bit until I got my second wind

    Hemingway once said, "Before you fail, try." So with that as my inspiration, I'm going to try today!.:wizard:

    Weekly Wrap Up (Oct 8 - Oct 14)

    Have a great time at GRL. Sorry I won't get to meet you in person (GRL is not my target audience I found after going 3 years ago), but I know you'll have fun!. Pictures maybe?

    GA's Newest Signature Author: AC Benus

    Congrats! Well deserved.
  11. Today marked my semi coming out of Classic status (No I'm keeping that for now). I wrote a short story A Closed Door, for a publisher that has since closed shop and returned my rights. Rather than shop it to a new publisher or *shutter* try to self publish it, I gave it to GA for their Premium Section. Today and for the next three weeks you can read it in the Premium Section of GA.  As for that semi retired status - well....

      Helping hands in the best sense work both ways.

      Fingers crossed, my plan is to submit to the anthology this year (and beyond)

       

       

  12. :/  That feeling you get when you finished the end of what's posted and realize something you could read all night isn't finished and the author disappeared six years ago with finishing the story.

      I hate it when that happens. :(

      Oh I know that feeling. :( I then have to find something else to read or else be driven mad by now having an ending.

    Wow, things sure have changed!. Thanks for all the work you do. As one who has benefitted greatly from the opportunity GA provides, I appreciate all the work you've done and do that much more. Andrew

      Most welcome. I love your books so very much; high fantasy with LGBT characters? Such a wonderful combo. Though your writing would stand on its own merit as a wonderful high fantasy series without the added bonus of LGBT characters.

  15. I came to GA about eight years ago. (It's hard to believe it's been that long, but then my daughter is almost six, so yes, it is that long ago.) When I joined I had no writing experience, and as much as I hoped to get published one day, I didn't think it would happen. I enjoyed writing and the readers seemed to enjoy my stories, so it was a good fit. In the back of my mind, however, I still had the goal of being a published fantasy author one day. One of the least recognized attributed of GA is how nurturing Myr and the others are with new and just starting writers. They provide us with a platform to test the waters. More, they help build our confidence. Myr not only bought Chosen of Honorus the first book in the Champion of the Gods series, he also agreed to let me shop it around to publishers. DSP Publication purchased the book and renamed it The Last Grand Master in 2012. Since then they've published three more books in the series. As I work on Book five, the last in the series, I look back on where it all began. Fittingly, Chosen of Honorus was the April Classic Author of the Month selection. Publishing is not what I expected. Some of it is better than i anticipated, other parts are not as great as I expected. It is far more of a business than writing and posting on GA ever was, and that work takes a bit of the enjoyment out it. But I regret none of it. Seeing my books published was a dream of mine and with the help I received from the readers and admins at GA, I achieved that goal. For those who would like a free copy of The Last Grand Master my publisher allows me to give away eCopies in exchange for readers signing up for my monthly newsletter. You can claim your copy here: http://GAAQGNewsletter.getresponsepages.com It is available in all formats and as a special thank you, I'll send you another short story. There are a few emails over the first month, but after that, I typically only send out one newsletter a month, never more than two and those are few and far between. And last, I'll make a special offer to everyone on GA. I recently wrote a prequel to give away to everyone who purchased book 4 (Child of Night and Day.) It is not available for sale anywhere. But for anyone who leaves a review of The Last Grand Master on Amazon , I'll send you a free prequel, A Mother's Love, as a thank you. Just email at andrew@andrewqgordon.com with a link to the review (or tell you did it) and I'll send you the link to where you can download your free copy. (If you already left a review, email me and I'll send you a copy.) If you'd like further information about the series, you can check it out on my website: http://www.andrewqgordon.com/champion-of-the-gods/ There are video trailers for each book as well as 'fact sheets' for various aspects of the world, gods and people. Book 1: The Last Grand Master Book 2: The Eye and the Arm Book 3: Kings of Lore and Legend Book 4: Child of Night and Day If there is something you would like to learn more about, email me and I'll try to add some new content to the Series Page to answer your questions. Best regards, -AQG
