WELCOME TO GAY AUTHORS.ORG, SHANNON!
I think you'll find -- as I did -- that GA is just an incredible "community" of PEOPLE.
People who enjoy both reading, writing and discussing QUALITY gay-themed stories. I'd like to quote Graeme, the member who posted right above me, who recently described GA perfectly. He wrote:
"We are a group of like-minded people who support each other and this place allows us to relax and be ourselves. That doesn't mean that there aren't disagreements and fights, but overall it's a place that encourages -- and that's the core of any community.
"The stories may be the body, but the forums are the heart and the members the soul of
Like thousands of other people before me, I came to GA for the stories...but the people who actively particiapte in the Forums made me want to be a part this "community". I now spend more time at GA than any other site. I recently joined the Editors group ... which, indeed, has a roster of members that are eager to help authors with any of the facets of story editing. I strongly encourage you to contact "Empathy", who heads up the Editors group. He'll be eager to match you to an editor, if you like. I was recently paired with one of your favorite net authors to help him edit his ongoing story. I can tell you without a doubt that it has already been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! There's also a Beta Readers group in the process of starting up. In short ... almost any kind of help and support an author needs can be found right here. Just wait 'til you get acquainted with the many awesome people who also call this place home.
Need help finding your way around here? Don't know how something works? Wanna get something off your chest? Well, there's a great guy wandering around the Forums who goes by the GA nickname of C James. He hides behind a goat that wears sunglasses...but he knows this place frontwards and backwards. He's my "go to" guy for "anything GA". In fact, I'll let him know you're here. He'll find you in a flash!
In fact, there are fantastic people just like C James everywhere at GA ...
...AND I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE YOU MEET THEM!
AGAIN, SHANNON, WELCOME TO GAY AUTHORS.ORG!
