  1. Today
  2. This is another hard book to finish. I will write a review on it, but I don't think this is one of those books people should jump into without forewarning.

    Adam Silvera's They Both Die in the End is already making me feel existential and sad. I'm only 12% into the book, Jeez.

  3. My wife came home from the hospital on Wednesday to begin six weeks of intravenous antibiotic therapy. She is unable to bear any weight on her left lower extremity so transfers to the transport chair, the bed or toilet are hazardous. I'm therefore very busy.

      and don’t neglect your needs, Daddy :hug:

  4. This was Cameron Boyce's last production before he tragically passed away. May he rest in peace.

      “Flushable toilets were used in Ancient Rome”

      kind of…

      Roman public latrines were very public :P and also “water coolers” for social gossiping. “Cleaning up” was done with a tersorium - a natural sea sponge-on-a-stick. Hadrian’s Wall in England (worth visiting) has many of these built when England was a Roman colony and the pic below shows these guys holding them. After “use” the sponge part was placed in the channel of running water to wash it (see the guy top left) - probably not too well :puke: - and the next user would then pick it up, taking care to check the sponge bit was at the other end - hence the expression getting hold of “the wrong end of the stick” :gikkle:

  8. Status Update – September 16th, 2021 – Seems incredible we’ve been here in Texas for three years already, and this writer is not a happy camper!  I wish I’d kept my a$$ in Virginia, but it is what it is.

    I know I haven’t uploaded any new chapters since April, and that was DJ #68, which I read last night to see where we left off.  I’m trying to get back into writing and hope to upload Chapter 69 in a few days.  My plans are to continue work on DJ and then pick up Watergame in Tennessee with Jeff and Julian and then to Western Texas with JC, Chance and Diego.  I haven’t forgotten you guys---or the stories.

    Love you guys!
    Doug

      Yay :) this has been one of my requests and now that it is going to be a reality, thank you to @Myr, @Cia, and programmer dude for making it happen :hug: I'm in the same boat as you Val :yes: Too bad my Kindle Reader when I accidentally reset it would do the same 0:)

      Mostly @Myr He's been a driving force to keep GA up-to-date and relevant to the times since the very beginning. Frankly, as I approach my 12th year anniversary (all but 2 months as staff of some sort on the site) I don't know how he does it!! A software update that tracks and displays the last read chapter is a HUGE perk that people have been asking for for years. I love that it's now possible, and built right into the story would be ideal!

      slowly but surely. this is still tied to the reading history page due to lots of technical limitations ad well as legal ones. still opt in too. 

  16. I'm really enjoying this gay ghost romance story, it is not often that I read ghost romance stories, let alone a gay one. I think readers will enjoy it too as I haven't highlighted this gay fiction writer yet.

      I lived around 10 years where you were driving though agriculture country to get anywhere. Nothing more exciting then have a truck hauling manure ahead of you hit a bump and you get some on your hood (bonnet) or windshield (windscreen). Oh, even better, passing a cattle liner and one of the cows is ass end to the side of the trailer full of holes and decides to take pee and wash the side of your vehicle :yes:

  19. 1 week, 3 chapters + prologue, and 11K words later...Thank you to the guys reading True As It Can Be. You all deserve cake 🍰

    I know it's rough around the edges: no editor, no beta, and a fast turnaround with my chapters. It's a passion project, I didn't expect anyone to even enjoy it as much as you guys have so far.

     

  20. Case Studies in Modern Life, the blog

    Here is my first GA blog posting. This is about my first published collection of short stories, which can be found on Amazon, and the story that led up to its publishing.

    Happy reading

  21. Chapter Sixteen of The World Out There is now up.

    The jury is back, the verdict is in and… This isn’t the end of the story.

    Find the chapter here.

    (This is a little late in posting because we were on holiday)

    Happy reading.

  22. Today, it nearly reached 75 degrees. So what did I do? I bought new snowshoes.

      I bet you beat the rush of everyone trying to get some ;) 

  23. Looking at my list of book reviews, do people think I should indicate the genre of the book within gay fiction?

    Not sure if it's easy for people to follow genre of the stories, with just the title and author. I have embedded links to goodreads and their reference, but it doesn't help casual readers of books reviews.

    If people reading my reviews want me to add genre to the title of each review, I will, just ask.
