:bulletblue: If you would like to submit fan fiction or erotica, it can only go in the fan fiction or erotica folder. If it is submitted to anything else, it will be denied or deleted.

:bulletgreen: Please only submit 3 deviations per week; this number may increase later.

:bulletpurple: Please keep mature language to a minimum; some is okay, but if your deviation has too much, it will be deleted. The same goes for romance. While romance is encouraged, no sexual content is allowed except for in the erotica folder.

:bulletyellow: Please don't flame or post hate comments. Writers here don't appreciate insults to their work.

:bulletorange: Post first chapters or prologues ONLY. We don't want the folders overwhelmed by a sixty-two chapter story. (The exception is our Summer Write-a-Thon.)

:bulletblack: If you have any questions on anything, feel free to send a note to an admin.

:bulletpink: dA's rules still apply.

Hello everyone in Authors' Escape!

I am currently offering a speed critiquing service for those who want to get professional standard feedback on their prose writing/or poems at a cheap price. I've just finished my latest 45,000 editing/proofreading job and I'm looking for new works!

You could have your short story, the first chapter of your novel or one-act script read by the end of the day with in depth feedback on how to improve!

If you're interested in finding out more, follow the link to my job service forum post.

I look forward to hearing from you! =D

Hi guys! I'm giving away free versions of the blue hourglass, the first book in my fantasy trilogy today:


UK site:…




Set in a world governed by time-


A young girl has been taken far from home, the Guardian of Lost Souls is losing control over his memories, the Timekeeper's Daughters are losing track of time, a carnival that no-one can remember is travelling about the land, and Luthando has been left a strange box named  memoriam that only he is meant to open.


Someone is playing with the very foundations of time, and they must be discovered, and fast, because the hollow ones are convening, and an army of terrifying creatures is about to be unleashed upon the world.


The book has been described as intriguing and intelligent. I hope you enjoy!
