What does it mean to be a Signature, Classic, or Promising Author?

  • A Promising, Classic, or Signature Author is an author who has achieved a level of performance, gained some recognition by the staff and membership at GA, and have entered into an agreement with Gay Authors concerning the hosting and promotion of their stories.

What are the differences between Signature, Classic, and Promising Authors?

  • Signature Authors are active authors who consistently produce high quality stories and represent some of Gay Authors' best writing.  Classic Authors were at one point Signature Authors but either do not post regularly or have retired from writing altogether.  Classic Authors can also be authors recognized for their works posted to other sites over the years.  Promising Authors are Gay Authors up and coming authors and will typically be promoted to Signature within a year or so.

What is the purpose of Promising Author status?

  • The purpose of Promising Author status is to help develop writers who have already shown initiative in improving their writing and promoting themselves; to give up-and-coming writers exposure and help them build a fan base prior to being considered for Signature Author status.

Promising Authors:

  • Demonstrate a basic level of writing ability
  • Actively seek and accept assistance to improve their writing
  • Participate in and contribute to the GA community
  • Promote the GA site (ex. If posting elsewhere, link back to GA)
  • Show initiative in promoting their work and growing their reader base, and/or are open to learning how
  • Actively engage their readers (respond to reviews)
  • Promising Authors must be willing to agree to post concurrently on Gay Authors any new material with the exception of personal blogs

Signature Authors:

  • Have an existing body of quality writing
  • Established a strong reader base on GA
  • Actively participate in the GA Community
  • Cross-promote and link back to GA when posting stories elsewhere
  • Encourage off-site readers to join the GA community
  • Actively engage their readers (respond to reviews)
  • Signature Authors must be willing to agree to post concurrently on Gay Authors any new material with the exception of personal blogs
