Behind the Castle Walls Introduction

As we approach our one year anniversary of the launch of our newest version of Castle Roland, the Administration team has decided to take you on a little behinds the scenes tour of what we do, who we are and what we have accomplished. 

Everyday at least one member of the Administration team takes time out of their busy personal schedule to solve technical issues, answer questions, post updates, discuss upcoming promotions, plan events and contests, and yes, to write this post. Officially there are only three administrators for the entire organization, Roland, Al Norris and Ken Barber. Unofficially we have lots and lots of advisors and assistants. Everyone involved from administrators to editors are unpaid volunteers. 

The amount of growth we have experienced in such a short time has caused some growing pains. Some programs we attempted failed horribly, others soared beyond our wildest expectations. Whenever a project fails we have to remember the words of the Great USA President, Franklin Roosevelt “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.” 

We have reached out across the world. Most of our readership is centered in North America and Europe but we have had emails and notes from places like Loas, The Philippines, Afghanistan, Australia, Madagascar and even more. Places where people could could be arrested, thrown in jail and possible killed just for reading our stories. Yet they still do. We can only guess that our stories and the hours of time and effort we put into the website gives them hope and courage. And yes of course a view into a sexual concept they can only think about and never act upon for fear of their lives. 

We consider ourselves an adult focused site as some of the stories we host would be considered erotica but we are certain that teenagers, struggling with their own sexual orientation have discovered a place where, just for a short time they can set aside their fears of coming out and immerse themselves in world of imagination that allows then to be true to themselves.  

To understand how we accomplished all of that we are going to go back to the "beginning" of The Castle and give you a 3 part history. Starting on August 12, 2018, part one will be the origin and beginning years through the end of 2015. On August  15, 2018, Part two will encompass 2016 and 2017. The Final post will be August 19, 2018 and will include where we are today and our plans for the future. Starting in September and each month after that we will share with you some details about key people in The Castle: The Administrators, Authors that have been with us from the very beginning, Editors and key volunteers.
