    I love helping GA writers edit their work. I look for simplicity, clarity and precision. Some would say I am ruthless, others say I am merciful. It depends.

  7. Folks, this post was written by Lugh some years ago and still stands. It's a pinned post, but I'm posting it again. There are two ways to find an Editor and/or Beta here at GayAuthors.org. One thing I would like to remind everyone before you start: By entering a working relationship with another member you agree not to divulge any personal information about anyone you are working with as an author / beta reader / editor as explained in the rules and this agreement is binding even if you choose leave the relationship. Option 1: Contact Cia or LJH and request one. You will need to include the same info as below in your PM to them and the will facilitate matching you to an editor and/or beta that suits your needs. Option 2: Post an ad in the Editor's Corner Subforum: Writing Support Requests Due to the sheer number of posts this forum receives the following policy has been adapted: Posts will now have formatting similar to a personal ad with authors advertising their story. Threads that do not follow this format will be deleted without notice. Ads will run for one month then be moved to the archive. If a match is made, PM Cia or Lugh, so the thread can be closed. In the TOPIC TITLE put the following information: ISO: Editor (Beta/Editor & Beta) – Genre (choose ONE) – Length of fiction (word count if you have it) (long/short/novel/novella/poetry etc if you do not) Commitment (One Time/Long Term) – Urgency (if you MUST have this done by a particular date / for a specific event such as the anthology or to meet a posting schedule) TAGS: ISO: BETA, ISO: Editor (separated by commas) helps people look you up if they are tag searching. In the BODY, put the following information: When do you want it by? What are your turn around expectations? (if this isn’t above) Have you worked with an Editor / Beta before? What do you need? Such as… Do you need line edits? Plot help? Someone to read your story and tell you what is wrong? What do you expect? Such as… Someone to fix your spelling, grammar? General advice? Someone to tell you how to write your story? Someone to write your story? How much do you have done? Where are you in the writing process? What software do you / can you use? Do you prefer comments or inline edits or do you not have a preference? And finally – a snippet of your story (except for poetry – put style) of at least 200 words but not more than 500 words. Please understand, we have a handful of active editors, some may be working on projects, others might have opted out of the program, please be patient when seeking an editor. Also, any new applicants to the editing program will need to fill in a questionnaire which I have. Once you express your interest in the program, I will send you the form to fill in. Thank you LJH
  8. Hi JDM, please place your excerpt in this forum. Also, check out previous requests for editors then you'll get a feel as to how to go about the request. Have a great new year.
  9. A huge welcome to my friend Kimichan. Your work is amazing and I hope you have a fabulous time on GA. Hugs and hearts always
  10. Thanks everyone for birthday wishes. Hugs everyone.
  11. You have the same birthday as my brother. Hope you're having a good one. :)

  12. Happy Birthday Mark Hugs Hope you had a bliss day filled with love and cuddles and snuggles and spooning
  13. On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest Proof Reader Jaro_423 I'm sure Jaro will make a valuable contribution to the Editing team. Jaro is a teacher with a degree in English and understands the value a proof reader brings to the story. He likes drama, romance, thrillers and coming out stories. He'll accept all drafts, from 1st to 3rd, depending on what the author sends him. It's heartening to discover that Jaro also hails from that deepest, darkest continent, filled with mystery and adventure, not just the continent, but is also a fellow South African (Zimbabwe), who loves reading, writing, nature, drawing, cooking and amateur photography among other things. A great all rounder with a great outlook on life. I'm sure he has many tales to tell, and I would love to sit in a boma, beside a large fire, on a deep African night with Hyena's laughing and Lions growling in the bush, listening to all of his adventures. Welcome to the team, Jaro Happy Proof reading (Hope you do some editing for us too)
  14. Did you get my PMs?

    Chapter 1

    Thanks for reading and I see you have stayed with the story. I have published it now with the Title SWIMMER and I must say it's selling quite well. I wrote the story in 2nd person because I like playing with POV. I would hope that the reader was immersed in the story as a character watching everything. Romance is a big part of our lives, and a well written romance must have drama, sadness, love, loss and hope just to mention a few. being a short story, I had to pack the story in, iron it out neatly and fold it wisely. I wanted it to appeal to everyone. I wrote two versions, this, I'm afraid is the family version. The heated version is for sale (LOL). I first wrote it for GA, then added the heat later. At least one reviewer didn't understand the timeline but the story takes place over a couple months and yet another reviewer thought I had rushed the relationship between Will and Baz, there should have been a lot more tension especially when Corneles arrived back on the scene. I suppose I could have made the story longer, but romances are romances, happy ending and all that. I was more interested in writing the lead up to the shark attack than relationships. This is my first romance, the second, called Even Stars Die is also published here on GA, but I am rewriting it. Thank you for all of your support in these comments. I really appreciate it. Your reviews are thoughtful and compelling. Hugs
