April 2, 2019: Spring Short Story Event ~ A Story Mashup:
Posted by The Story Lover

Posted by Fred DeElve

What is it? Well, you take two different stories by two different authors (The Fine Print - They can be the same author if you want.), put them together and run with it. As always, you must have permission from the authors involved to use their story and characters. For Example - Sentenced to Haven, Dragons Across Space, The Operant Unconscious Memories, Another Priorities, or you can create your own title. However, you do need to give attribution to the authors whose stories you are combining. Have fun go wild and crazy. Did I say have fun yet? Yeah, do that!

I will post stories Monday, May 27, 2019, on Memorial Day.

  1. All entries should be in by Friday, May 24, 2019, at 9:00 PM PDT (give or take a day or three.)
  2. Entries should be between 500 to 15,000 words give or take.
  3. Send all submissions to Spring Short Story Event.

Happy Writing,

March 31, 2019: Fort Family Announcement
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Family!

As one of our favorite holidays is right on top of us, I'm afraid our plans for it have been unavoidably put off. We got an announcement from our hosting service that there will be some much-needed maintenance being performed on the machines that we rely on for hosting. Which means we can expect intermittent outages throughout the day. Now at first, we thought "Hmmm... Maybe THIS was intended as an April Fool's joke..." before we considered how serious our hosting service takes their job. So, even though all year long we have been planning something a bit out there to make up for missing past April Fool's opportunities, we regretfully need to let it go this year. For those of us who think THIS is an April Fool's joke, we have trained you well but, this year that training will not serve you as well as it should. <giggle>

I also want to remind you all that tomorrow, our hosted author "Garrett D.M." ships out to boot camp with the United States Army. I hope you all were able to send him off with good wishes and I personally can't wait to hear some of the stories he comes home with. Those of you who would like to send him a quick message to wish him luck, you can reach him at his listed email: garret.d.m98@gmail.com. I'm sure he would appreciate knowing that we are all with him in spirit.

Til the next update,
*HUGZ*

It's been a busy time on the Cafe in the last 5 days!!

Since the last update, we've had the following updates:

  • March 19th: "Moving On" from "The Castaway Hotel: Next Generation Book 3 by Bill W 
  • March 20th: Chapter 11 of Missing by Stannie
  • March 21st: Chapters 7 and 8 of Dante, My Inferno by BillyYes; Chapters 16, 17, and 18 of The Music In The Painting by JuJu
  • March 22nd: #21 from You & I by D, K, Daniels; Chapter 32 of Voyagers by Voyagers Authors
  • March 23rd: Chapters 9 and 10 of Dante, My Inferno by BillyYes

And to add to the fun, the Clan Atlantic Fleet becomes official! Memories Part 3, Chapter 35 is now live! In the process, we end up learning a little more about the events of November 5th, 2004. The intel is still coming in, but the Clan is slowly putting together the puzzle that was dropped in their laps. I hope you enjoy the update, and please make sure that you let our authors know if you like their stories - a few kind words do wonders for an author!

Hugz;

March 21, 2019: A milestone on the Cafe!
Posted by AC

First, a big thanks to DBarber for the help with posting updates to the posted story list -- if you saw my schedule right now you'd understand why I have Mikyvis...! :)

Now for the big news -- thanks to some of the best authors and readers on the net, in less than 2 years the Corner Cafe has just reached a major milestone - THREE MILLION chapters read in 22 months!

I want to thank all of you, both authors and readers, for continuing to choose the Cafe; without all of you this wouldn't have been possible!

March 17, 2019: Past and Present
Posted by dBarber1

Since it looks like AC has fallen behind in letting you know about certain stories being updated, I figured I would step in and help. In addition to the updates to Book 3 of the Castaway Hotel by Bill W and Memories Part 3 Ch 34 by ACFan that he has posted already,  the story Can You Spare A Quarter the revised edition by Tigerpaw  has had three more chapters posted  in what is a really great story. Chapters 30 and 31 of Voyagers as well as a chapter on Space Fleet Regulations has also been posted by the Voyagers Authors. There is also a picture posted by ACFan of the Clan Short Atlantic Fleet: CSSF Jesse L. Brown for you to look at and admire. The Story Lover has also posted a Societal Commentaries Poem titled The Shadows Of My Mind. Garret D.M. has  posted the long-awaited continuation of his story with Ch 3 of Boise ID., and finally, we have Chapters 17-20 of the much-loved series You & I by D.K. Daniels. I asked Kyle for help in getting ACFan some rest so he’s able to update more  since he always seems so busy but all I got was a laughing Mikyvis who then grinned before disappearing so I’m not sure how much rest he will get now.
