    What is an Anthology?

    Each year, Gay Authors sets a number of themes for stories. Typically, there are 4 themes during the year. An author writes a story that is related to that theme and the story is posted as group with the anthology. These are GA sponsored events. More extensive details can be found here in the Anthology Forum:
  6. June flew by! Alas, all too many years have passed since these times in the stories written by Mark Arbour in this month's CSR selections, Furlough and War's End. Did you have the chance to read these anthologies? They do tie together, so you really should read them that way so you can review both of them. If you haven't, first enjoy this interview with Mark and then go check out the anthologies and then come back and share your thoughts in the comments below! If you had 30 minutes of free time, what would you do? When I have half an hour of spare time, I generally pick up my iPad and catch up on games (like Words with Friends) or the news. I guess the preferred answer would be that I’d write, since that goes with the theme here, but to do that it takes more than time: it takes motivation. What’s one location you’d love to go to research for a story? I’m hoping to get to England in the next year or two. I’ve spent limited time there, and what time I spent was in London, which I loved. My plan is to spend some more time in London, then head down to Portsmouth to the Royal Navy Museum, and most importantly, to visit HMS Victory. What's your favorite room in your house? Do you plot or write there? The bathroom. No one bothers me there. I don’t write there (SMILE). What’s something personal about you people might be surprised to know? I flew on the Concorde from Paris to New York and I’ve travelled on the Orient Express (train). If you had to only work on one project for the next year... what would it be? My ADD addled brain finds the idea of working on just one project absolutely abhorrent. What draws you to work on period pieces when you write stories? There’s really two pieces to that question…there’s the time period and there’s the location. I’m an avid reader, so during my reading travels, occasionally a time and place will intrigue me, and I’ll store that away for a potential story topic. For a longer story (like the Bridgemont Series), it has to be an era that has truly captivated me. You didn’t ask, but if I were to write another historical series, it would probably be set in Ancient Regime France, most likely around the reign of Louis XIV or XV. Did you pick WWI as a time period for a particular reason for Furlough and War’s End? I picked World War I for three reasons, the first two of which are books. I’d finished reading John Keegan’s “The First World War,” then I’d read Jeff Shaara’s “To the Last Man.” Keegan did an excellent job of outlining the war from a historical perspective, and then Shaara made it come to life in the talented way that he has. The final reason was that my grandfather fought in WW1, and I had been going through some boxes in the basement and I’d uncovered his gas mask and helmet, stark reminders of the hell he’d gone through at Verdun. Do you have a preference for one story over the other? I like War’s End better, because I’m a sucker for happy endings. Both stories have strong themes relating to soldiers/war and recovery. Was this just their story that came to you, or was there an underlying theme to the story from events in real life at the time? I wrote these stories in 2009-10, and during that time frame our soldiers were coming back from the debacle that was the Iraq War and Afghanistan. There was much talk of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but unfortunately the talk didn’t seem to manifest itself into action. Suicides were much too frequent, and when it happened to a family friend, that brought the whole issue to the front of my brain. I continue to agonize over how we, as a nation, glorify our soldiers when they go off to fight, yet after they are done and come home, we really don’t give a shit about them. Do you have a favorite scene/moment/sentence in either story that resonated with you that you’d like to share with readers?
  7. We hope you had a great Christmas! As we march closer to the end of 2017, did you get the chance to read our previous holiday anthologies? Our 2004 Christmas Anthology: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/browse/category/7-2004-anthology-christmas/ Our 2006 Winter Anthology Blizzard Theme: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/browse/category/11-winter-blizzard/ Our 2015 Secret Santa Short Story contest: https://www.gayauthors.org/stories/browse/category/80-2015-secret-santa-short-story/ Also, this story was strongly recommended: We'd also like to remind all authors that we have four anthology themes for 2018 and a novella contest: Contests 2018 Summer Novella Anthology - Due April 15th, 2018 Anthologies 2018 Spring Anthology: Now or Never - Due May 15th 2018 Spring Anthology: Encounters - Due May 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Fight Back - Due Nov 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Good Intentions - Due Nov 15th
  8. Hi Can there be a single place to track/organise/link to/or otherwise collate the current (structured) opportunities for engagement with GA? For example, today, there’s (at least) the Halloween writing competition open for judging, the 2018 novella contest, and the anthology theme voting all open, but it’s not ‘easy’ to know that, or find them all. Of course you can use the search box, but then, you’d have to already know they existed in order to search for them, and even then, it’s not massively intuitive to get to the ‘right’ post. I’m sure that all of these things have appeared on the front page previously, but quite understandably, they also ‘fall off’ relatively quickly and before the respective events are over. Sam Edit: I realise that every such new feature requires time and effort to implement, and for something like this, ongoing effort to maintain. I think I’m a relatively engaged user of GA, and I’d happily volunteer some time if I can help.
  9. How can I announce my story? You don't have to. The site system will automatically post an update in the recent updates sidebars, the home page if you have over 200 likes, and anyone who follows your story or you as an author will get a notification. Your story is also moved to the top of your story listing on your profile. There is a large author community on GA, and a lot of stories. How do I make my work stand out and get reads? Make use of the various author events available: Weekly prompts: Create a flash collection story and then make use of the prompts to inspire short pieces that you can post direct links to in the Prompts forum and possibly get a feature in the weekly Wrap Up site blog. Anthologies: GA does several anthologies each year with specific themes. Each event has specialized rules, but all the stories are released on the same day and promoted on the site blog and forums. This is a good way to get dedicated anthology readers to see your work if they might not otherwise. Contests: Every so often GA will host anonymous short story, novella, or novel contests for readers to enjoy. These get a lot of site promotion, and there's a chance of winning a prize. Premium: GA purchases stories of various lengths to post chapters on a weekly basis for our Premium subscribers. Anyone can submit a story for consideration, but the stories must be well-edited. *Submission is not a guarantee of purchase* Make use of the various ways to engage readers: Always reply to comments and reviews left on your stories. Post a story sample/excerpt in the Sneak Peeks forum prior to posting a story to garner and gauge interest. Post a topic in the Stories Discussion forum to engage readers, post pictures, ask questions to a general readership, share links to inspirational items (music, images, etc--do not post copyrighted material) Add a link in your personal signature, or a graphic that acts as a link Mention your chapter or story update in a status update
