Long Overdue Update

Wed Nov 28, 2012, 9:28 AM by inknalcohol:iconinknalcohol:
It's been awhile, and we're really sorry.  Things happened and we fell behind.  :ashamed:

Catching Up

Within the next couple of weeks, we're going to be entering in all the surveys that have come in over October and November.  So if you haven't received a partner yet, expect to get a note from us in the near future!

Staff Openings

And while we're on the subject of making matches, we have a couple staff openings.  AzeeraTheNinja has stepped down from her Match Maker position, and she will be sadly missed.  We appreciated all the help she gave us while she was here.  So make you sure you tell her thank you!

If you're interested in becoming a Match Maker, please send us a :note: with the following information:
:bulletgreen: Your Age (Must be at least 18 years old)
:bulletgreen: Quick Summary of any Group Admin experience you have
:bulletgreen: Why you feel you'll be a good fit at Beta-Readers

We'd like to bring in at least two more Match Makers to our Staff. :eager:

Literature DD Roundup: October 2012Greetings everyone!
As October has come to an end with spooky delight and tasty treats, it's clear we've had another month of wonderful literature features! Since the team has doubled in size we have consistently brought forth the two literature DD's a day, plus a contribution from staff member Moonbeam13 made for a special Spirit Day with 3 Lit DD's!
Before I skip to the roundup, I would like to note that the team is very busy at the moment: neurotype is in India, Nichrysalis and thorns are both sorting out family issues, and BeccaJS had her baby! Because of this, our time on deviantART is limited and suggestions for DD's are extremely valued.
But on to the main event: ladies and gentlemen, here are your October Literature DDs!
Features by BeccaJS

Secret Santa ProjectWith a bit of pushing from you guys, I've decided to stop being such a coward and host my own Secret Santa project.  So, here's the deal:
You have until November 30th to sign up if you'd like to participate.  I will take your names, match you guys up, and get you your partner's information by no later than December 3rd.  You will then have until no later than December 31st to get your "present" sent off to your partner.  Here's the catch about this:  I will allow you to decide whether you'd like to mail the finished product to your partner OR just send it over the net via notes/deviations/etc.  This is completely up to you guys; I don't care how you get it to your partner, just so long as you get it to your partner by the deadline.
If you get paired up with someone and something comes up, or you don't feel like you're going to be able to complete the project by the deadline, PLEASE let me know by December 15th at the latest so I can figure out an alternate

Lovelliiiiiiies! I just wanted to know if you're still looking for people to be a matchmaker? I'm trying to update the "Looking to help out the Lit Community?" section of Love dA Lit.

i am looking for a co writer for a possible novel that i want to see published, i dont know how to write it out well enough, i am fifteen years old, my name is julia, i really need help! Here's my story idea: [link] and I've been looking EVERYWHERE, money will be involved because when I get this published I will split the profits?

I just need someone who can help me write it out. I have terrible writer's block and I can't write out my story ideas right now D8

Not with a co-writer. We're mainly just for betaing services.

Have you posted in the Projects forum?
