Ripoffs?

These guys: http://forum.silicone-breast.com/viewforum.php?f=11 seem to be publishing stories from BCTS without permission. Everything here is automatically copyrighted in the name of the author so these guys are violating federal law. At least two authors have complained to me and I have sent a takedown request via the site's Contact Us link.

I am sure that several other authors are having stories posted without their permission. Have a look and send them a takedown notice.

Gaby Book 19

Just a heads up - the new Gaby book - Girl's on Fire - the 19th in the series will debut with part one on Sunday 19th February. If I can get my head in gear there will be a Gaby birthday special - it's her birthday next Saturday of course.

Being off everything - food and bike included, i've had no excuse not to get on with it!

I hate being ill! Mystery muscle damage in calf, mystery pains in sinuses and associated deafness - aargh!

The US banking system

Author: 

Hi all,

here in Europe, each bank account has something called an IBAN - which stands for International Bank Account Number.

If I wish to make a transfer to someone, all I need is the recipient's IBAN and I can on-line transfer funds. This has worked from Europe to Australia, to South Africa and within the Eurolands as well.

Leftenant or Lieutenant ???

When I was writing and publishing "Lieutenant Katia in Afghanistan", there was quite a discussion about my use of "Leftenant" in the story, so I finally corrected it to be what the majority wanted. I am just now watching "Corvette K-225" made in 1943 and they are speaking the word Leftenant. I have no idea if the movie was made in the US, Canada, or the UK.

So there. Tongue sticking out >>> :)

Suffered a huge loss.

I just found out earlier today that one of the greatest men I have ever known passed away. Technically he was my Step-Dad, but honestly he was so, so much more to me than that. He was the man that stepped in and stepped up to being my 2nd Dad after my own passed away when I was 7. He was the one that taught me to be the kind of person I wanted to be. Someone who stands up for what they believe, to stand up and support your friends and family. The person that taught me to always do the right thing, not just when people are watching, but especially when people aren't.

So you wanna be a writer. Some advice from a professional.

His genre wasn't TG Fiction, but detective stories with a popular hero named Shell Scott. I've pasted the whole interview here, so ignore the parts that don't have much to do with writing and publishing your work, but DO pay attention to how he says he plotted and wrote what he wrote and how he wrote it.

Becoming Robin...

I'm curious how much interest there would be in seeing Book 4 continued? Seeing as it's set 5-6 years ago, and, to be honest, I was a different person back then. I've grown and changed a lot, and expanded my world view.

To put it bluntly, I no longer live in the past, which, despite plenty of "present' (for the time) references, the story was kind of a throwback to the 90s. Alpine Springs was meant to feel like Full House San Francisco (Robin even moves from the "real" SF as part of that symbolic transition).

Eden's reality

So! I've been trying to continue writing Eden's reality for a while now, but I haven't had much luck. I've made a lot of mistakes with the story, mainly pushing up important scenes so that they'd happen earlier in the story because I was worried readers would get bored/lose interest in the story if I didn't, and it threw the whole thing off balance. Eden wasn't supposed to be changed until his first night at school but I moved that forward, and as such Alexis and he never kissed, and Yani didn't appear until much later, after even Julia was introduced.

Some of the telling got a little long as the author was into what the heroine described the next "new idea" to the people involved. But all in all it was an imaginative story was it not?

Big Updates for Zoe and Ashleigh

If you were in the middle of reading one of our stories this morning, then you might have noticed some temporary weirdness happening with the organizationals. We, that is Ashleigh and Zoe, have finally unified our author pages into one place so that you can easily access everything we’ve written, instead of having to try and guess which of us posted what and where.

You can find the unified author page at the bottom of this announcement. We would post it right here, on this spot, but we have another, bigger announcement first.

The advice comes in an internal document to staff outlining a raft of common phrases that should be avoided for fear of causing offence. “The elderly” should be referred to as “older people”, “disabled lifts” called “accessible lifts” and someone who is “biologically male or female” should be called “assigned male or female”.

Our New Author

We are aware of the excessive amount of postings our new author today made. The author has already been informed of our posting policies so no rants by others are necessary. Erin will fix the front page herself in a little bit. I was told to leave it to her. Sooooooooooooooooo...
