Slivers of Moonlight by ErisJade Mature Content

Lost Girl: The Transitional Years by virgofemme 17 and older
This story is a follow up to Lost Girl, so if you haven't read it yet, please do, as this is the sequl to that story. To those who have already read Lost Girl, yes, I know the title is unimaginative and sorta lame, but It's just a working title, so it won't be permament. :P To all of my readers who...
Survivor by NiqueMo94 17 and older

What the Chamber means to you
Hey Chamber Peeps! The Chamber might be invited to participate in a book, and they are interested in the members experiences with the site. How you found it, are you active, a reader, writer, lurker and what it has done for you, what it offers you personally.
There is no money for the site in this unfortunately, but it is a chance for some wonderful exposure for the site and its authors.

If anybody is interested in participating, you can email me at valentchamber@gmail.com for more information. Right now things are still early stages, but I am very excited about this.

We are back...

Hey everyone, thanks for your patience this last week, I know it hasn't been easy. We are functioning again, and hopefully will stay that way. This is a trial run to see if we have nailed all the issues, and so if it goes down again... will have to look deeper.

 

The Chamber is being split in half, as we simply cannot handle the traffic we are getting now without raising a significant amount of money each month. The Chamber and The Chamber Vault.  Any stories predating 2012 will be stored in the Vault and can be accessed at The Chamber Vault, reviews can be left as usual and logons are the same. These stories will not be able to be edited or updated, and if you wish to resurrect one, then you will need to contact the admins.

We are still in the process of moving some stories, which will take a little time, but it is better than being offline for weeks more. I know this is not a perfect solution, and it is going to annoy many people, but it is our only real option if we want to stay online.

We hope that this time the fix holds, as last week was a series of things working and then going belly up again. It would be very helpful if people could report on Facebook if they are having any issues or things are working well.

 

Happy reading!
