GROUP HIGHLIGHT:

Our newest affiliate is the Writers-Guild-DA writers-guild-da.deviantart.co… The thing that sets this group apart is that it has a very organized series of quarterly contests fav.me/d819r2x and everyone who participates receives a thoughtful review when the winners are announced, which is a lot more than can be said of most dA-based writing groups. Below are ten of my favorite deviations:

1) Malicious-Monkey’s Tales from the Home Front fav.me/d7tdjae
2) just MANGO’s Al Senia: CH 1, PT 1 space-commander.deviantart.com…
3) mlatimerridley’s Legend Unleashed (Keeping Secrets 1) Prologue fav.me/d5ghic6
4) YppleJax’s Pulse fav.me/d7y7og1
5) Lugal’s The Pulse fav.me/d7y2u9k
6) NicolaiGrey’s Pulses fav.me/d7xwgy9
7) desuran’s The Battle of Phanos fav.me/d7w079s
8) DreamingHero’s Wings of a butterfly fav.me/d3c091h
9) enigma-theory’s Rainfall fav.me/d2gkp5a
10) jjgrimshaw’s Eternal Empire: Legends – Tassian’s Defiance fav.me/d6pouwz

BOOK CLUB:  Caelum Lex fav.me/d5gro6q is one of the best written, if not THE best, works of dA-based original universe space opera. Although similar in style to Firefly it sets itself apart by focusing on likeable characters and omitting some of the less enjoyable aspects of the Firefly series (i.e. River and Reapers). As members of the dA community, I think it is important for us to support talented indie writers who are part of this social network.

QUESTIONS FOR THE READER:

1) What did you like most about Caelum Lex?

2) What is one thing that you would have done differently if you had written Caelum Lex?

3) Are you aware of any other dA-based long form science fiction that is set in an original universe?

4) Would you prefer for the quarterly discussions to remain focused on books, or should other topics be covered? (i.e. movies, games, comics, etc)

OPaaT has a project-based submission policy fav.me/d5dhxa8

Can't accept the stuff you posted recently, but if OPaaT ever affiliates with a group that has your art in it I would be happy to include one of your images in the group highlight I do in the group journal.  Sorry for the confusion.
