Posted by The Story Lover

Dear Readers,

There is less than a week left to get your submission for the Fall Short Story Event Submission submitted. Next Saturday at Midnight PST.

The theme for this years Christmas Short Event is A True Spirit of Christmas, What The Christmas Experience Truly Should Be.  The guidelines are simple all Short Stories should fit the theme or at least be in the neighbourhood. All stories must meet the standard Submissions Guidelines located HERE. The word count should be between 500 and 15,000 words give or take three or four (um...thousand? < giggle >). If in doubt Fred takes 'Cinmon Crumbles' as bribes.  Don't forget to give the Fort Family of Sites permission to host your Short Story, also make sure that your Author name & Copyright Date is in your Short Story as well.

Happy Reading,

 

 

November 1, 2018: A huge welcome!
Posted by AC

I would like to welcome Tigerpaw and his story "Can You Spare A Quarter" to the Featured Stories on the Cafe.

This is one of my favorite stories, which I read way back when the original version was being written. I am honored to be able to provide this story for the readership of the Cafe, and hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. The rest of the chapters will be put up as soon as we can get them online, so keep an eye out for them.

Enjoy!

October 28, 2018: Just in case you thought I was done...
Posted by AC

There are a few things that I'm trying to get wrapped up before we  move on to Part 4 of Memories.  While a scene in progress is being finished, I've decided to take care of a couple of things that somehow got missed in-chapter. In the process, you are going to catch up on quite a few things that make future events make much more sense.

To take care of the issues, I have posted chapters 28 AND 29 of Memories Part 3!

Once the final scene is done in Chapter 30, it will be posted as well - there are already completed scenes from Akeentia in it, as well as some interesting diversions by TheEggman! Stand by for more insanity as soon as it's done!

October 23, 2018: Something special for the CSU readers....
Posted by AC

Not only are you getting stories, but as a present to the readers of the CSU we have brought online the first interface dedicated to everything CSU - the CSU Hub, located at https://csuproductions.com

Not only will you find the stories, but also you'll find the extra little things and utilities that we've made available to you. Things like PDF copies of some of the completed stories, images, and custom multimedia are being added as fast as we can figure out where we stored them while we were building the new setup. (The characters keep moving them!)

I hope y'all enjoy the new setup! For those who like to print out the stories, the PDF versions will handle the reported issues with some printers printing white text on a black background. I am in no way responsible for your large paper bill or the quantity of printer cartridges that you go through!

Enjoy!

October 23, 2018: And the fun continues...
Posted by AC

Just when you thought it was safe to take a break to grab munchies, the party has stepped up a notch! We all know that you can't have a CSU anniversary, without a taste of the story that started it all, and I have once again delivered on the expectations.

"Chapter 27: Please rewind before returning" from Memories Part 3

is now live and awaiting your reading!

It's taken sixteen years to get to this point, and it has been a lot of fun getting here. Thanks to all of the authors past, present, and future who have given their input not only by writing stories that complement Memories, but also have got involved with all the little extras that make the CSU complete. A huge thanks to the most loyal readership that I've ever seen - all of you are awesome, and your comments and suggestions are greatly appriciated.

I'll say that this isn't the last thing you'll see tonight - but I'm no telling what is still up the sleeves of the CSU Author's Group. (Halo courtesy of Kyle)

From the CSU Authors, Cory, Kyle, JJ, Adam, and all of the rest of the characters of the CSU, we can only say THANK YOU!

Hugzzz!!!

AC
