  5. The theme of the 2017 Fall Anthology is The Fall Out and/or Secret Spaces Feel free to interpret these themes in any way you want. The anthologies are not exclusive, but inclusive, so don't worry if you think your entry has only a tangential link to the theme. If you are inspired, then write a short story, poem or play, and submit it. Please read these submission guidelines carefully. You may address these themes in any style or genre you choose. Be as creative as you want to be with the themes. However, please note that this anthology is an anthology of short stories. By definition, a short story must stand alone and not require reading a prior story. It therefore cannot be a chapter in a serial. Who may participate Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. However, submission to GA Stories requires that you be a member here at GA so you can be assigned as the author. If you have author status (which is free and you can get after five posts in the GA forums), you can submit stories. All authors who participate in the anthology will be entered into a drawing. The winner gets to choose which prize they would like: 1 Month Premium Membership 1 Month Ad Space - This can be used for a GA story, a published story, or your story collection $5 Credit to the GA ebook store Submission Guidelines Submission Date: November 15th, 2017 Please Note: Submission date is for submission to the Anthology Proof Team. Proofreads should take no more than 72 hours once you have been paired with a proofreader, if you have not received your story back within 72 hours, please contact Renee Stevens via PM. If you send your stories in within the last 48 hours of the deadline, you have 48 hours after receiving it back to upload it in order for it to be included in the Anthology. Non-Poetry No Story Limit: Each story submitted must meet quality and editing guidelines and only one story can be under 1,000 words. Each story posted as its own submission Minimum Word Count Per Story: 1,000 Maximum Word Count Per Story: 25,000 Poetry Up to five poems Posted as a single submission (a collection) Each poem posted as its own chapter Submission Procedure *Please read carefully* Once your story is complete and has gone through your beta and editing team, please complete the following steps: Contact Renee Stevens via PM. Include in the PM the following information: Title, original editor, genre, synopsis, word count, and excerpt in the body of the PM. Attach your story file. You will be paired with an editor from the Anthology Proof Team who will perform a final proof for the anthology and return the file to you. *Please Note: The Anthology Proof Team is not meant to take the place of an author’s normal editing team so all entries MUST be edited prior to contacting Renee Stevens.* Once you receive your proofed file, complete your edits and submit your story into GA Stories, for help, please read How do I upload my anthology entry into GA Stories? Make sure the story is unpublished by clicking BOTH the publish sliders, one for the chapter and one for the story itself Select “Fiction” as the category. It will be moved to the correct category by the anthology team. Mark your story as COMPLETE. Only completed stories are allowed in the anthologies Please note that once you submit a story it will NOT show up in your list of stories until the anthology has gone live. Copy the URL for your story and provide Renee Stevens with the URL via the announcement thread so that your submission may be checked to ensure it has been submitted correctly and meets submission guidelines. This also ensures that it will get moved to the anthology category. Please give the URL to the STORY page, not the chapter page. [*]Please do a visual check of your story once it has been uploaded to ensure that it uploaded correctly Extensions Occasionally things happen that prevent an author from meeting the deadline. If you should find yourself in such a predicament, PM Renee Stevens, before the deadline (not the day of or after), and something may be able to be worked out. Please contact Renee only if you need an extension; requests will only be considered when requested by the author personally. However, if the same author is consistently asking for extra time, extensions may no longer be granted for that particular author. Deadlines exist for a reason. The Anthology Team needs time to prep the anthology to go live and extensions, while occasionally warranted due to unforeseeable circumstances, add to the already hectic workload. If you have NOT made arrangements with Renee prior to the deadline, your Anthology will not be included. Please do not send a message the day an anthology is due requesting an extension, these will not be granted. You are welcome to post your story on your own and include a story note stating that it was originally meant to be part of the anthology. Story Titles Please do not use the anthology themes or your GA Username as a title. Be as original as you can. In case of duplicate titles within the anthology, we will request that titles be changed. Unacceptable entries & Content Warnings Entries that are obviously unedited (containing many errors), are overly graphic, or which are deemed to have unacceptable content will be either declined outright, or changes may be requested as a condition of entry. For information on what is considered to be unacceptable, please see the Story Content Rules FAQ. If you still have questions, ask. Please include a Content Warning in the story notes if your story contains sensitive content. Examples of sensitive content: abuse, especially graphic/extreme abuse or child abuse, in-scene graphic violence, suicide attempts/themes, allowable incest, etc... if you're unsure that your story falls within this type of content please alert Renee Stevens when you send the PM requesting the final proof. Previously posted stories (whether at GA or elsewhere) are not eligible for inclusion into the GA anthologies. Editing All entries MUST be edited prior to being sent to the Anthology Proof Team. If you need an editor, please visit the Writing Support Requests forum to request one. There are editors who prefer to edit only one shots, such as anthologies. Please make sure to state that your story is for the upcoming anthology. Also, please make sure to follow the guidelines when requesting an editor. Copyright As with all content in GA Stories, the rights remain with the individual authors. Your story will post with a simple 2017 copyright notice, using your GA user display name. If you have another preference (for example, a different name, or a Creative Commons license, or specific copyright wording you'd like to use), please include that with your submission. However, with this anthology, by submitting your story, you are giving GayAuthors.org first worldwide rights with 14 days exclusivity. What that means is you are giving GayAuthors.org permission to archive your story on its website, distribute it via RSS, kindle, iphone, ipad, eyeball…. And you agree not to publish it anywhere else for 2 weeks. If you later decide to post your story at another site, please mention at the beginning or end of the story that it was first published as part of the 2017 Gay Authors Fall Anthology: The Fall Out and/or Secret Spaces, and include a link back to GA if possible. If you have any questions, please contact Renee Stevens via PM or via the Anthology Blog or Forum.
  6. Sorry all, I know that we missed out on the February discussion day for the current anthology. Before we get started, a quick reminder that the deadline to get your votes in for the April Fool's Short Story Contest is 2:00 PM EST TODAY. The themes for the Spring anthology are Jagged Edges and Unintended Consequences and the deadline to get your story to the Anthology Proof Team is April 30th. So, let's get this discussion started! Feel free to answer any of the questions, all of the questions, and/or ask your own! Are you planning on participating in the 2017 Spring Anthology? Which of the two themes are you thinking about using? Have you started writing your anthology? If so, how far along are you? If you haven't already started, do you have an idea of what you want to write? Do you have your anthology planned out? Do you work from an outline or just write as you go? If you've already started, would you like to share anything about your story? If you've already submitted your story, are you planning a second story?

    Potential Anthology Idea

    Many of you will probably know that outside of my writing here and the small pile of pseudo-educational jobs I do, I'm also a political activist and one-time candidate. This is not a blog post to go on and on about my politics, but simply to set the context for everything else. Five years ago I helped pass an anti-homophobia and anti-transphobia school board policy, and since then I've had the distinct pleasure of watching people become less worried about anti-LGBTQ discrimination in my hometown's schools. Since then, other school board and countries have moved towards greater legal acceptance of LGBTQ rights and freedoms, but many youth still feel like they can't come out for fear of or familial rejection. I'm working with some of my activist friends in the real world to help create an anthology, based on the Chicken Soup books, that would showcase the lived experiences of ordinary LGBTQ people coming out in all aspects of their lives and showing that things do get better. I'm looking to eventually have 101 stories, just like the series I'm using as my template, and different sections where the stories could be found, such as coming out to parents, to siblings, at work, to friends and a few other sections that could possibly make sense. I'm the first to admit that my circle of friends is not terribly diverse, and that we also come from very similar backgrounds as activists (which I fully admit are not the same as normal humans. Our lives are much less joyful.) which may not resonate with everyone else. I'd be honoured to have people submit their stories, or if this is something the community wants to do together and publish, we can find a way to make that happen. I want this to happen, so it will happen; I'd like it to happen with the people I've met here, all the writers and the people who know how to spin a good yarn and help potentially use our writing gifts to help out kids. Thanks for reading, and hopefully thanks for your support.
  8. This shall be the discussion forum for my novella Remember my Heart. This novella is part of the special 10 year Anniversary Anthology. Our theme: Secrets can Kill. Tell me what you liked/didn't like, comment on the characters, settings, etc., and ask questions! Beware spoilers if you haven't read it yet. And don't forget to check out the other stories in the anthology. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GA!!
  9. I know there has been a bug in the search function related to display of search results, but do you know about the contest / anthology problem? I wanted to check out a story in the Secret Admirer Contest. For some reason I couldn't recall the name of the story, so I went into the story search menu and selected the Category 2016-1 - Secret Admirer Short Story. No other filters were selected before I pressed Update. I got seven stories listed out of the thirteen in the contest, and the one I wanted wasn't among them. I then pressed the link next to the Category item on the first story and on this main list all stories were present. I then tried the most recent anthology and the previous contest. Result: Secret Santa Contest: twelve stories out of twentyone could be seen, but all were present in the main list. Crossing the Line Anthology: seven out of nine could be seen, but all were present in the main list. Once I had been to the main lists via the Category links, my story search listed the full number of stories, when I tested it again. But when I logged out and back in, it was the same thing, i.e. not the full list. Or if I tried a new Anthology, like Full Circle, I once more only got a limited number of entries listed. I know it's probably a minor bug, but if readers are using the main search tool to find older anthology stories, they will not get the full sample unless they happen to press the category link on one of the stories. Both readers and authors are losing out, I think. I hope you can find a way to fix this. PS I'm using InternetExplorer - I'll go check in Firefox. Yep, same problem there.

    Back to the Grind

    Well my vacation draws to an end and I realize I got a lot but not everything I wanted done. However I did get to relax and didn't over do anything. I also got to enjoy the fair this year so really not a bad vacation at all. I have finished up one and half of the last three chapters of Accidents Happen. Tomorrow after one more look over I will send it to my editor and beta. That in and of itself is major for me. I have begun work on my next major story, the expansion of my summer Anthology piece. It will be out sometime next month and I'm titling it The Strange Life of Jonas Mark. I have a new person working with me on this and it has me really excited. So far my winter anthology piece has been thrown out three times. I have begun three different stories and just hit the point where I didn't like it and wouldn't finish it. So going to have to do some thinking and see what comes up again. You wouldn't think working off the idea of an aftermath would be hard. Sigh. Anyway, I'm sitting here typing this up on my phone. My power went out a half hour ago as I was about to go downstairs and put up my laundry. Guess I am getting up early in the morning now to do that. Anyway have a good one all.
