      Encourage an Author. Leave a Review!   08/14/2017

      I'd like to thank the handful of members who have really stepped up on writing reviews for authors.  They really appreciate when members take the time to write the review.  Speaking as an author myself, reviews and feedback encourage us to write.  I've heard from several of our authors thanking us for reminding everyone how important this is. Read some of the latest reviews here: https://www.gayauthors.org/discover/74/   You never know when you'll find that next must read story... but those reviews might help guide you in.  And, in turn, your reviews will help guide others.  Everyone benefits.    If you are looking for stories to review, Here's the list of completed stories.  Any story that isn't already showing stars, needs a review.  Give them a try.  Or, go back and review some of your beloved classics.  The authors love hearing from you.   Go through the list and be sure to leave a review! It is really simple. Select a star rating from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best. Write a review that is spoiler free that highlights what you think other people should know about the story.  If you are leaving a critical or low rated review, please make your comments constructive so that the author has an opportunity to improve their writing.  We writers usually appreciate this. I know I do. If you are reading a story review and you like it and found it helpful, be sure to mark it as helpful.    That's it!  Check out the video if you need help.  It is closed captioned as well if you can't follow my mumbling dulcet tones:   Remember, you can see recent reviews here: https://www.gayauthors.org/discover/74/ (also found from Activity -> My Activity Streams -> Latest Story Reviews)

  1. Moorpark Palms Letters 3. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 08/07/2017 (Updated: 08/22/2017)

    These are the original, annual, New Year's letters that I sent to my friends from 1993 to 2001.  That was from two years after I moved into the building to a year-and-a-half after I left.

     

    As mentioned, the letters were the basis for the book, and they often overlap the same material.  But they cover more time and more characters, and are sometimes funnier because they're more compressed and somewhat more rude.

  11. Neon

    By William King, in Fiction. 06/27/2017 (Updated: 06/10/2017)

    Neon.

    Neon (meaning new) – is the forth most abundant element in the universe, but rare on Earth, found at 1 part in 65,000. 
    It is an element which doesn’t like to react, because the outermost shell of electrons orbiting the nucleus is full, giving no incentive to swap with other elements. Produced through fractional distillation, the chill factor makes neon important. A high electric charge excites the neon and it glows as it returns to its neutral state.
    It’s inertness makes it long-lasting.

    This introduces Jake, the narrator of Moorpark Palms, a funny book of stories about a small Los Angeles apartment building in the 1990s.  Jake & Conor is a light little romance, once intertwined with the longer book.  I broke it out because it distracted from the apartment stories.
