WELCOME TO BONANZA BOOMERS' LIBRARY!

REGISTRATION FOR OUR LIBRARY IS NOW LOCATED ON OUR FORUMS. Visit us in The Board Room for details on how to get a Library account.  Registration on our forums is separate from our Library.  Library membership is required for reading and commenting on stories.

Effective January 2019, all stories must be at least 2,500 words.  Shorter stories are welcome on our main board in our Fan Fiction forum.

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

This Library is for Bonanza stories only. Any stories featuring the Bonanza cast in other roles are not permitted.

We allow cross-over stories; however, 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.

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.

All stories must be complete.  Incomplete stories can be posted as a WIP in our Fan Fiction forum on our main board.

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.

You may add 1 picture to your story.

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

Don't post your story title in all CAPS.

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.
