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

For a while now I have been composing a response to The Secret Life of Billy Chase. The response is Brandon's Blog, an online diary he keeps that is where he puts his thoughts, his experiences, his dreams, his poetry...and his heartaches. Brandon signed his first entry with 'Brandon...Smiling' and so this story is named. Thanks to the support of Atruefan who has been reading my response and who has given me positive feedback he was kind enough to sponsor me before Comsie The Great. His Alluring Majesty read my first chapter and gave his blessing for its release. Alas, though I wish he had the time, I don't think Comsie can always Beta Read this work though I would dearly love it if he could. I love his story so much that I want to remain faithful to it in Brandon's perspective. In that spirit I was wondering if any of you, his true fans and particularly of the Billy Chase Chronicle would like to Beta Read Brandon Smiling for me so that I stay the course. Brandon became a special character for me because the way Comsie wrote him greatly reminded me of myself at 14-15. This uncanny connection compelled me to start writing again after several years of lying fallow. This is a work from my heart and has aspects of my own experience being gay growing up. I greatly admire Comsie for his adept insight into such a character as mine as my experience was a fairly common one and one that many can connect with. This is how Comsie writes his characters. They are reflections of us and possibly as we could have been or would have meant to be. Anyway, I hope you guys might help out if you want. I would sure appreciate it. Love, MrM
