HASA is 9 on July 1st! Please read

July 1 is HASA’s 9th birthday. We're at -$368 which means we have 45% of April, and all of May & June to cover, and the July bill will soon come due. HASA depends on member & reader donations to pay hosting fees, which pays for the dedicated server we need to host our content -- all the features and fun visitors love - stories, comments, forums, alerts, challenges and more. We shouldn't be running this far negative for this long. It would be best if we were positive. Please consider a birthday present to support HASA so our great stories can remain online and accessible.

Another way to support HASA is subscriptions. Currently we have four monthly and two annual subscriptions. It would be great if we could have more! I would be pestering you less. The monthly hosting fee for HASA is $150. There are now three ways to donate to our PayPal account, one time donations and monthly or annual donations.
Donation buttons are on the home page (one-time donation only), all story list pages and on the Donations page. If you haven't donated yet to help support HASA, please consider doing so; any support will be timely and greatly appreciated. HASA gets a lot of traffic and offers many great stories and features.

If you're a little short on spare change at the moment, donations of time are always appreciated. There's an archive full of stories just waiting for comments, authors who would dearly love an email complimenting them on their work, challenges that need entries, playlists that need to be created, and forums begging for discussions. If you are a reviewer, check out a story today. If you aren't a reviewer, no better time than now to sign up. If you are an author, please consider donating a new story.

Thanks for enjoying HASA!
