Hi all,  :) 

As we're no longer restricted to one story per thread, I've decided to create a place for all my story updates (with the exception of Never Too Late, which will remain separate). As well as posting my own stuff, you're welcome to add your comments. What will you find here? Writing updates, advance notice of stories and/or chapters, and maybe the occasional sneak peak. How active this thread will be depends on what's happening in my writing life. I'm not going to waste your (and my) time posting rubbish.

And the first announcement is...  Apart, a short novella, will start posting tomorrow (Saturday) in the evening, my time. It will post in GA's Premium section as a small 'thank you' to the place that started me writing. 

Here's a sneak peak:

Spoiler

After seeing to the stock close by, Ted set out on a longer walk round to the sheep than usual, giving himself ample thinking time. Sal, excited by the change, demanded attention. It was something he didn't begrudge her. An hour in, he stopped by a brook, some nameless rivulet dropping down from the hills on its journey to become part of the Ouse. Sal lapped at the bright, clear water, tongue working hard. He sat on a nearby rock to consider the bewildering changes forty-eight hours had brought.

John stole back into his mind. Populism, demagoguery, and anti-gay sentiment always fired up his friend and lover. Ted sighed. Differences between them hadn't mattered much while they were in Manchester. He was always the one who kept out of politics. Once in London, working lives amplified the arguments. He recalled one evening spent crowing over his first bonus. Johnny's voice, cracked with passion and zeal, seemed to echo through peaceful Yorkshire air. 


“You're a sell-out. A fucking mercenary sell-out. Don't you realise that?”

The bonus had followed a long, demanding period of work to facilitate tax avoidance schemes for a multi-national. 

“Is it even legal?” Johnny's face red with suppressed passion.

“Yes!” He stood at the other end of the breakfast bar. “Of course. De Yonge isn't some shady, fuck-you operation. Didn't you get an offer from them same time as I did?”

The other man's nose crinkled. “Yeah – it deserved the nano-second's worth of consideration I gave it.”

“Why apply then?”

“To keep you happy.”

There was silence as both digested that exchange.

A very promising stat to your new story. I'm hooked and eagerly waiting for more. You even have a sensible hero, which is my favorite. :lol:

Having introduced the two main characters in my new story Apart, here's Chapter 2. We learn more about what's happening... maybe.  🤔

If you prefer your (premium) stories complete before you start reading, Apart has finished posting.  Enjoy. :)

      This may sound petty. However; a few issues related to it.
      Can the ability to edit status updates be brought back. As a blind individual, typing mistakes happen. No matter how much proofreading is done. For sighted people I’ve seen multiple deletions. Which leads to multiple posts in notifications not found, with error code. Like needle in haystack. Before you say, Yes I can do status list from forum page. Thank you! ☺️

      So, I've finally posted the first story since January. It's called My Little Secret, and it's very personal to me in so many ways.
       
      You should check it out and let me know what you think.
       
      Chapter 2 is already posted! https://www.gayauthors.org/story/insurgency/mylittlesecretorg
       
      Thanks!

      I just want to start by saying THANK YOU FOR PATIENCE!
       
      It means so much that all of you have been so kind about my long absence. I have been astoundingly busy with getting ready for college and being a senior in school, it's been wearing on me.
       
      There is good news however in that brand new stories are coming SOON.
       
      There is bad news as well and that involves Trigger. I've been able to complete over half the story now, but complications have led to the halt of future writing for this story, and also the uploading of already written chapters are not promising either. I'm very sorry for this, but it is an issue that is out of my hands.
       
      Again thank you all for patience/kindness. Stay tuned for more updates.
       
      Thanks!

      Hey guys.
       
      It is taking time but all the chapters of all five of my stories are getting posted. I am about to hit 300 chapters between the five stories, which is awesome because I thought that would ever happen when I first started writing out Jacob Finding His Way. I thought maybe thirty maybe thirty five chapters, but here we are about to hit 300 with five stories being written. Hope you all are enjoying the stories and thank you for being patient with me as far as getting the chapters up for you guys to read. They are there, but I can only post one chapter a day. Enjoy and leave those comments since that is the only payment I and my editors get for getting out these chapters for you all to read.
       
      Thank you,
       
      J.P.G.
