Folks,

First of all,  I have changed my Favourite Charities link to  TSL's Favourite Charities & Online Safety thanks to input from Jeff P. and Jane Hernandez: "

I'd like to suggest that you also share an important LGBTQ online safety guide which came out recently. Did you know that 73% of LGBTQs have been harassed online due to sexual orientation or gender identity? This guide aims to empower them and give them the tools to protect themselves online.

I like how they give a few tips and practical suggestions for each situation.

Thanks for helping protect LGBTQs online,

Jane"

So please check out that page.

I want to thank all the readers and authors that have encouraged me over the years and especially over the last few months. Thanks to the support from my fellow Admins and Site Owners and Webmasters as well. With your support and some kicks to my rear I am now fully back writing and enjoying it again, so look out world! I am working on a lot of older stuff and some exciting new stuff, well I think it is exciting. So stay tuned for more.

You just might want to occasionally check out the Quotes Page as I am constantly updating it.

January 9, 2019: Cupid's Arrows ~ 2019 ~ Cupid Won't Give Up! Our Valentine's Day Short Story Event For 2019
Posted by The Story Lover

Dear Readers and Authors,

This year's Valentine's Day Short Story Event is titled ~ Cupid's Arrows ~ 2019 ~ Cupid Won't Give Up! 

The event starts now and runs through January 31, 2018, for unedited stories and February 7th for edited stories. I will post all stories on Valentine's Day February 14th.
The Rules:

  1. The short stories must be between 500 words and 15,000 words

  2. The Short Story should be about how Cupid Won't Give Up, as he keeps shooting arrows at someone in the closet.

  3. Many of us have been in this position. Suddenly, your heart reaches out for the one person who you simply can’t risk telling how you feel. When your heart betrays you, can you build up the courage to follow it or do you continue to fight?

  4. This event is open to all readers and authors.

  5. Authors must authorize the Fort Family of Sites, by written permission to host their stories.

So put on your writing caps and get writing, more details to follow.

Happy Reading,
