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,

 

January 2, 2019: Let the party begin! Memories 31 is live!
Posted by AC

Look out Internet, the boys of Clan Short are back! To start off 2019, Orlando HQ has wound things up for some good old-fashioned Clan fun. This installment has more twists and turns than a mountain trail in the Alps, so hold on tight! From first-time interventions (Don't get the bobcats mad) to family salvage operations, to new brothers making a point, this chapter's got it all!

I really hope you enjoy the chapter!

Hugz,

AC

January 2, 2019: Lincoln Update
Posted by Lindon Weztser

Hey everyone,

First, let me wish you a belated happy holidays and joyful New Year! I honestly can't believe its 2019.

Anyway, I've been receiving quite a few emails from readers, asking if I have stopped writing "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected". Short and simple, I haven't stopped and I do plan on releasing CH. 25 once it is finished. Which, unfortunately, is nowhere near completion and no timeline on when. I'm sorry, but my real life has been super busy and not sure when it will slow down. However, just for the record, chapter 25 is still a work in progress and not forgotten.

I do appreciate the concerned/check-up/feedback emails from all that have sent them. I'm trying my best to reply to all, so sorry if I missed your email or haven't gotten to it yet.

Once again! Have a great 2019!

Santa & I owe our author NCNesturfer our most abject and humblest of apologies, I made his story invisible while I checked on some special formatting and in my rush to get all of the chapters posted, I forgot to switch the status to Publish, before I clicked the Save Button.

So please enjoy this latest addition to our Christmas Short Story Event.  This has been our most successful event yet, thank you, authors!

All of these stories will be appearing on their author's Home Site as soon as we get a slight crosslinking issue resolved.
