WELCOME TO BONANZA BOOMERS' LIBRARY!

Please register here in our Library to allow you to read, comment and upload stories. Registration here is separate from our discussion forums. Use your same username (pen name) as you have in our forums to avoid confusion.

All authors that are adding a story for the first time to Bonanza Boomers Library, must first get approval from our Librarian, Patina. Please private message your complete story to Patina, via our Bonanza Boomers discussion forum, and she or one of the members of the Beta Readers team will review your story.

This Library is for Bonanza stories. Any stories featuring the Bonanza cast in other roles are permitted on our forums only. Bonanza Boomers website offers a forum that welcomes fan fiction based on the stars of Bonanza as they appeared in many different roles.

While we allow cross-over stories in the Library, this is still a Bonanza Library and the Cartwrights must be the main characters in the story. Any character from the other TV story must not supersede the Bonanza characters in the progression of the plot.

AU stories are permitted. We do not have a category for that, please post this in your summary to let the readers know.

Library submissions should be free of major typographical and grammatical errors. You are free to request a beta reader to help you. A list of our beta readers and our beta reader team leader can be found in our discussion forums.

All stories must have a rating of G, PG, or PG-13. There are no R Rated stories permitted in our Library. Please do not post your story title in all caps.*

All stories must be complete.

You may edit your story at any time after you've submitted it, but you may not add any additional chapters to your story. Added chapters bumps your story to the top of our Library home page and that pushes somebody else's story down a notch and someone else's off this home page screen completely.

Stories must be at least 1,000 words.

You may add 1 picture to your story, no more than 1 please.

An author may add no more than one story per week. After 7 days, you are free to add a second story.

Our Library has a side bar for featured stories. I will alternate those features now and then. Only members who participate in our Bonanza discussions forums will be featured and *no stories with titles in "all caps" will be featured.

Any stories not meeting the above criteria will run the risk of their story being removed.
