Happy New Year to all at GA. 2020 has been a difficult year for all of authors. Some lost the will to write, others managed to stumble on and there were a few authors who were inspired by the pandemic to turn there hand at writing. Throughout 2020 we have had some fantastic new stories. Some established authors with continuing stories, others who have provided great new stories that are on-going.

It would be very difficult to pick out a favourite author or story as I've reviewed some fantastic reads throughout the year, with some fantastic stories due to finish this year.

For 2021 I'd like to see more fantastic stories from our great authors here at GA and hope those that lost there muse in 2020, rediscover it and we get some great stories.

May 2021 be a year of continuous success for all authors and members of GA.

Thank you for providing endless quality escapism during a trying year.

May the site and its authors continue to uplift us throughout 2021.

My favorite stories were all of the ones by Carlos Hazday, the CAP stories (I binged on the whole series), Mawgrim's "Gone Away, Gone Ahead," all of CJ Love's stories, and lilansui's "The Reluctant Consort."

Well thank the stars tat 2020 is now dead and buried!! I won't wish for things to go back to "normal"because "normal"has changed dramatically in the last 12 months or so.  I do hope that we will learn from this and go forward in a more cautious and safe manner, remembering to think of others as well as ourselves.  May all good things come to those that deserve them.

I do hope that we will see some great stories on here this year. My favorites are anything by Mark Arbour or Quokka, but would love to see some new authors giving it a go. Unfortunately, I cannot write a story, but I do enjoy reading them. I would also like to see more premium stories this year.

On that note, I hope you all have a very happy and prosperous 2021.

So for me 2020 was about reading to escape and GA is one of my favorite ways and places to do that.  There were so many good reads wolf m continuing his series with the alpha.  Having sasha distan return and then giving us this fabulous fan fiction has been epic.  Tied up in knott's was also a great focus point to get away and read.  So many reads and I have to thank you and the authors for them all and maintaining my sanity through them.  Thank you again and I can't wait for another year of reading and community.

So much to enjoy on this site.

Anything written by Mark Arbour is a great way to pass the loneliness of shielding.

Hey Happy New Year! I hope I'm following the correct blog, it's the Gay Authors one right?

I love so many different authors and stories here, but favorite is probably the Bridgemont series. 

Yes, the one this blog post is posted in. :)

my dinner of shepherd's pie with chopped up leg of lamb carrots, onion, thyme, worcestershire sauce, red wine and mashies on top was a disaster tonight, but my boyfriend gobbled it down so I'm grateful to him. Thank you BF

      I first had my first name as my username but later decided to change it to Story Reader. I love to read stories almost all day long. I love almost all kinds of stories. I read romance, mystery, sci fi, history, bios, westerns, and many more.

      You weren't feeling well last night so you went to bed early. The last thing you remember was wishing that everything would be better when you woke. As you open your eyes you notice the room is different. You go to get up and suddenly alarms go off and a nurse comes rushing in. When you finally calm down you are horrified when the nurse tells you, "I'm sorry but today is the first of January twenty-thirty." What happened to you?

      You made a new resolution for yourself this year. Unfortunately on the first day of the New Year problems immediately arose. What was your resolution?

      I found this in a science related newsleter I suscribe to and thought that some of you might be interested.  
      It's a short story contest about the future.  The prize includes a trip to Japan.

      ***Merry Christmas***

      First off, I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday and I'd like to thank all of the authors who participated in the Secret Santa Short Story Contest! There were a lot of great entries and based on the comments I've seen over the last week, it was hard to pick just one story. Thank you everyone who voted for your favorite story and a big Thank You to A.J. for collecting the votes. W_L and I will be in contact with each of the winners over the next few days to hand out the prizes. Stories will be properly attributed to the correct authors very soon.
