How's your week been? Mine personally has been fantastic (check the little personal blog entry at the end if you're interested)
In Blog-land, life has been good as well. We started the week with a look at Hosted Author Bill W's The Castaway Hotel - Grand Reopening 1. Andy021278 did a great review, in part because of how much he grew to love the story.
On Tuesday, we had a highlight about Premium Membership, what it is, why it exists and the benefits of being a Premium Member. Also, after four years, the price of Premium Membership is slightly increasing and this blog entry explains the new price structure and why the change.
Out Wednesday Author Showcase highlighted Just Love Him by Promising Author Dion as well as Author GREEN's A Hero in the Hallways. I've read both stories and they are both excellent - I hope you check them out.
Thursday saw Part 2 of our two part series on Getting in the Mood. What started as a simple inquiry by podiumdavis (THANKS AGAIN!), turned out to be a fantastic look at how various GA authors get themselves in the mood to write such wonderful fiction. The variety of responses was great! Thank you also to all of the authors who contributed.
Our weekly Writing Prompts, courtesy of Comicfan, are ... well, even more humorous than normal, this week. I burst out laughing when I saw the one "How in the hell did you think this would be a good idea?" I cannot wait to see where people may go with that. The second one with a list of words - well, when one of the words is Zombie - again, fun times can ensue.
Finally, we ended the week not looking back, but instead having a Blast to the Future with an update on GayAuthors.org software updates. Informative stuff and cool to know about.

Have a great week everyone! Read, Write, REVIEW!!!
What? You're still reading? Ok - you might have noticed the mention about having a good week at the top. So Saturday, I went to a wedding. It was a two hour drive each way and Dan couldn't go because of Tyler's Little League. It turned out to be one of the best weddings I've ever been to.
I met both the bride and groom 21 years ago when we were all in college in the Sacramento area. They dated for about three weeks then figured it wasn't working out. Then two years ago, out of the blue they ran into each other and a friend goes "Oh - have you met..." to which "Ya, didn't we date?" They hadn't seen each other in all this time.
They exchanged numbers, called a couple times and went on a date - and it just grew from there. They are both extremely wonderful people. I don't keep in close touch, but know what's going on generally with them and could NOT be happier. It was more of a reunion than a wedding - all of the old friends I saw and chatted with. The setting was beautiful. I can't just stop the high I got from being there tonight.
It is the people in your life, the communities you create - these are the treasures you keep (and grow) forever.
