Sammy Goode | 4687 comments On June 11 the YA LGBT thread will turn one year old! We are now over 900 members strong!

So, to celebrate we will be having a few fun contests to mark the occasion and that is where you come in dear authors! We are asking you to consider donating one of your works to be used as prizes. There are two ways to donate!

First, you could simply leave a note here with the title of the work and format you are willing to contribute OR

You can pm me (Sammy2006) as some authors have already done to donate more privately!!

Either way--on behalf of all of us--I want to thank you dear authors for giving us endless hours of reading pleasure!!

Thanks for considering donating to our celebration!

We're looking for a free copy of an existing ebook or two to award as prizes, but writing something is good too :) (I'm donating a couple of my shorts in ebook, but also writing a story.)

If you have a couple of things of yours that are YA appropriate and not too dark, that would be good. Sammy will let you know. We're just going to do some contests and events for the anniversary week, and want to have some prizes for the winners.

Just because he made you a key to my place does not mean that is an understanding. I am pretty sure that's breaking and entering.

Will do :). And hopefully some of the YA books that I'm working on will be accepted. The YA section of the publisher I'm with opens in a few months so I'm writing as much as I can in preparation.

Yes we do. I'm tired of seeing YA novels featuring jerks and the young women who fall for them instantly without questioning basic sanity. I won't name names :).
