Weekly Wrap Up (Jan. 12 - Jan. 18)
Well the Great White North is living up to it's name this week. Snow hurricanes in St John's, and in Atlantic Canada. Huge amounts of snow have fallen in central parts and the the Prairies have been gripped all week in -40 weather. Even the nice green lower mainland of BC is covered in snow and the travel is not recommended. Still, Australia is burning in some areas and other areas next door are flooding.

Weekly Wrap Up (Jan. 05 - Jan. 11)
Well I'm in a good mood I just finished watching a hockey game that came out the right way   I don't know about you, but do you come to GA for a mood change? What am I talking about? Well this week has had me thinking about a lot of things, Australia burning, Eastern North America in tornadoes, rain and freezing rain. The Royal family in turmoil (okay, so I like the Royal Family, shoot me ). A passenger plane accidentally being shot down in Iran and 100's of lives lost. With that all going on, I think about it but I also make a point of coming to GA to check in on some positive engagement week after week. Stories, Blogs, Status Updates, Clubs, and so much more. So do you come to GA to escape some of the real life that we all deal with day to day?

Weekly Wrap Up (Dec. 29 - Jan. 04)
Well Carlos said it first. Wayne said it second. So I'm going to say it as well Happy New Year to each and everyone of you from all the staff here at GA!!! We look forward to the upcoming year to see where our little corner of the internet will grow and expand with everyone here along for the ride! I think one of the main New Year's resolution this year was not to make any resolutions at all. And that is the best idea I've heard in years...

Weekly Wrap Up (Dec. 22 - Dec. 28)
It appears that the holiday season is starting to wind down. So if you celebrated exchanging gifts, what did you get that made you the most happy? Myself, I got a PS4. Now I'm not an avid gamer at all, but I leaned towards the PS4 as I believe @Myr has an Xbox, and if I got one he would be CONSTANTLY bugging me to play with him in Dora the Explorer, Special Adventures

So what did you actually get? I'm curious  

Before I forget, I want to wish everyone, your family and friends all the very very best in the New Year!!

Shall we move on to the blog this week?

2019 Fall Anthology Wrapup
Did you miss any of the anthologies as they went live? If so, that's okay, this is your chance to get a complete listing of all the stories included in the two themes. Just a reminder that next week will be the return of the weekly prompts from @comicfan. Since this will be my last post of the year, I wanted to give him a huge thank you for providing the prompts every week! Aliso, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Proof team for all their hard work in helping to get the anthologies ready to go!  @Valkyrie @rec @Parker Owens @Thorn Wilde  thank you for taking the time and effort to give all the anthology stories a final polish. Also, last but not least, another huge thank you has to go to @Mann Ramblings for all the banners for this year's anthologies. I know sometimes I forget until last minute, but you never let me down. I look forward to working with all of you in 2020!  Now, let's do that wrapup!

Weekly Wrap Up (Dec. 15 - Dec. 21)
It looks like this will be the last weekly update before Christmas 🎅. So what constitutes a white Christmas you ask? In Canada it is 2 cm (.79 inch) of snow on the ground at 7 AM on Christmas Day, the US is 2.5 cm (1 inch) and the UK it is one snowflake observed falling anywhere in the UK . Obviously there is parts of the world that won't see or ever see a white Christmas, mainly most areas of the Southern Hemisphere. I'm also thinking about our friends in Australia that are fighting sever fires across a lot of New South Wales  .

No matter if it is a white Christmas or not in your neck of the woods, on behalf of myself and all the staff here at GA, we wish you in the spirit of season, a Very Merry Christmas!! Even if you don't celebrate know that this means we are wishing you well and hope that you get the opportunity to have some great times between now and the New Year with family, friends, and everyone that makes our lives so rich every day of the year.

2019 GA Year in Review
As we head into Gay Authors' seventeenth holiday season, and the end of the decade, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on our community in this past year.

With that in mind, first and foremost, I want to thank all of you for making Gay Authors what it is.  We wouldn't be here without our authors writing stories, our readers reading those stories, and everyone talking together about those stories.  That is the root of our community, and that focus is what we should keep in mind as we ride the roller coaster of life.

Fall Anthology: Raincheck & Fall From Grace *Set 3* - NOW LIVE
Who's ready for some more stories? It's time for the next set of anthology stories to go live. I know there hasn't been a lot of stories each grouping, but we had a lower than expected number of stories, so only a couple new ones are added each week. We have two more stories to post next week. If you haven't seen your story yet, you can PM me to make sure it's one of the two. Happy reading!!!

Weekly Wrap Up (Nov. 24 - Nov. 30)
Like in Independence Day....Hello Boys! I'm baaaaaaaack

Well, also you gurls, actually everyone! Thank you Renee for taking my place last week

So I'm dried out from last weekend, which is a good thing! Last weekend I was at a football game, outdoors and it was hovering around 0C or 32F. Quite pleasant football weather (oh, North American Football I should say). Now this weekend, -30C or -22F, and I'm not enjoying this weather 😠 I'm thinking of all of you in Florida, or Australia or elsewhere sunny and tropical (not LA this weekend 🥶). So without any further chit chat, lets get to the wrap up so I can crawl back into my warm bed, fire up the iPad and get down to some serious reading!

Fall Anthology: Raincheck & Fall From Grace *Set 1* - NOW LIVE
HAPPY THANKSGIVING for those celebrating today. Anybody ready for some new stories?  We have some great offerings for you as part of the 2019 Fall Anthology. Wondering when the anthologies would start to go live? Well, wait no more!  Today we have 4 stories for you to enjoy, and each week I will make another set live. I tried something a little different this time, for those who tend to write longer anthologies. I don't know if it will become a thing, but it never hurts to try something new. Stories over 10,000 words were given the opportunity to post their story in chapters, with a new chapter appearing each week over the course of the anthology. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the great stories that our authors had to offer!!! And don't forget to leave the authors feedback in the form of comments and reviews!

Weekly Wrap Up (Nov 17 - Nov 23)
Wow, it's been quite a while since I've done one of these, but @wildone asked if I could fill in this week, and I told him I'd give it my best. Between life with a little one, and many other things going on, I just want to give a huge Thank You to Steve for continuing to do the Weekly Wrap Up's for me!!!  Currently, it's getting our Christmas light show set up and ready to go by December 1st (have you ever tried to make 7 pvc stars and wrap them in lights?), among chasing a 16 month old Baby J around (along with his puppy). It's just a bit exhausting, lol! So, let's take a look at what happened in the various GA blogs this week!  And while the deadline for the fall anthology has passed, it's never too early to get started on the anthologies for next year!!!

Weekly Wrap Up (Nov. 10 - Nov. 16)
Not really much of a preamble out of me tonight. I will give everyone a heads up that Renee will be returning next week to do the Weekly Wrap up for me, as I know for a fact that I will be indisposed one week from tonight 🍻 🍹 🍷  So be gentle to with her, and especially you, @Valkyrie, if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say it at all. That should apply to you regarding me but for some reason I know it will be a freezing cold day in hell when that happens

Why is it the older I get, the more appealing that nursery rhyme songs appeal to me? Am I regressing?
