REMINDER – If you are already in my #Blog #Authors Hall of Fame…

This Authors Platform also intended to help you remind people that you and your books still exist…


Once you have appeared as a Guest Author, you can submit further articles about any subject you’d like to share, providing they’re Family Friendly.

There is no restriction to how often you make further such appearances, once per month is a recommended minimum, but not mandatory.

Why do I recommend that authors who have already been guests, send me further articles about topics they’d like to share, or “HowTo’ informative articles?

It helps keep them (and subsequently, their works) in the public mind and eye, especially if they have them posted regularly, e.g., once per month.

It gives authors the opportunity to prove and demonstrate their writing talents are not just limited to the books and stories they’ve already written.

It’s much more effective than constant spam-like “Buy My’ campaigns (which are prone to being ignored).

They increase their chances of being picked up by search engines, like Google.

It will introduce them to new potential readers, as well as reinforce their presence with long term followers and fans.

It gives them something to show potential Agents and Publishers when asked what THEY are doing already to promote themselves…

This is a Family Friendly Blog, so if your book subjects are not suitable for Families, you and they may not be promoted.

I’ve been asked by several authors to elaborate on the Family Friendly aspect of my conditions.

It’s difficult to know where to draw the line but I’ve come up with the following that I hope will help:


Graphic descriptions of the sex act, consensual or (worst) non-consensual.


Unnecessarily graphic descriptions of violent acts.

These days particularly, there’s growing concern that young people are being influenced by watching this on TV, Movies or in their computer games, leading them to become desensitised to the consequences for both the perpetrator and the victim and trying out the violent methods on others without compunction.


Gratuitous use of swear words for the sake of ‘realism’ and ‘sensationalism’ rather than to add to the story that is being told.

Like everything else in life, it’s a matter of moderation in all things – extremism and its possible effects on young minds is my main concern.

So – ask yourself this question:

Would I like MY spouse, children, relatives or friends to read this book and know it was ME who wrote it?’

Hope this helps.

    Our friendly big Ape, Chris has made an amazing offer to all writers out there in bloggers world.
    If you haven’t followed his blog, you definitely should. A very helpful, supportive and knowledgeable blogger. You definitely don’t want to miss this opportunity to be his Hall of Fame. A positive way to get your name and work out there and encourage more people to follow your blog. I definitely have attracted great new readers and friends from being connected to Chris.

  2. This is so thoughtful of you. Such a generous gesture ♥
    My writing does tend to be more suitable for readers aged 18+ although not violent /erotic but rather romantic and sensual.

    Fabulous blog.
    All the very best for 2016

    Chris, The Story Reading Ape offers his blog as a platform to be part of his “Author’s Hall of Fame” as also a guest blogger and keep your name in the cyber circle. He knows what he’s talking about – and I am very grateful to have our Great Furry Friend. Spread word about him and his blog!!

    Chris is a wise Ape. One of the best ways to keep the public (and thus your audience) in the know and finding out about you and your books is by staying active in the online media circuit. Take it from the Big Guy – he knows. But what you need to realize is branching out beyond your own blog/website on a regular basis and doing ‘guest spots’ on industry or target audience blogs is what will help people remember you. So give The Story Reading Ape a try, if you haven’t already, and remember to keep in touch and keep your eyes open for other blogging opportunities too!

    The Story Reading Ape is one of the best author promotion platforms here on WordPress and if you are not already in the Hall of Fame then get yourself over there – check out the format and avail yourself of this amazing opportunity. It is a way to showcase your work and keep it to the forefront of Chris’s wide following here and on social media. The Ape is tireless.. which reminds me … time for an article myself… coming soon Chris and thanks for the opportunity.

  7. Thanks for the reminder, Chris! I’ve just shared and retweeted the links to both Halls of Fame and did the same for the page you have created specifically for me! I think we often forget (I know the authors I promote on Reading Recommendations do) that most of these promotions we receive from bloggers like you are permanent and can always be accessed by new-to-us readers, if we tell them about the promotions’ and blogs’ existence. I keep all such links listed together on a dedicated page and every once in a while will share them (as I did with your link just now), because I think there will always be someone new out there just discovering me and my writing who hasn’t seen these promotions yet.

    Big thanks for all you do for all of us! You truly are The Great Ape! Bunches of bananas coming your way … Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch!
