if you ARE already in my Authors Hall of Fame…

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

SO…

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 minimum

WHY?

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 Book’ campaigns (which are prone to being ignored).

By posting articles outside their own blogs, 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...

PLEASE NOTE:  

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:

Erotica:

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

Violence:

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.

Swearing:

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.

  1. I must get some stuff to you, Chris. I write poetry as well as novels, and I publish them on my own blog. Would you accept poems and other stuff that has already been published on my blog, or must it be new content? (I assume I can publish it on my own blog afterwards!)
    Thanks for all the help you are giving to we poor writers.
    Incidentally, I am soon to publish a book in a new genre under a pseudonym. I’ll get my alter-ego to contact you.

    • Poems and other stuff, from your blog archives, or new, is fine Viv.
      You are encouraged to share it to your blog and anywhere else you’d like to.
      I’ll look out for a suspicious looking alter-ego-esk type character lounging around my email inbox 😄

  2. You want ME… ahem, I mean us, of course… on your blog once a month? Really??? I would never have been that presumtious! I’ve been waiting till book 3 was finished, but at the current rate of knots, that migbt never happen. But I could drum up the odd guest blog post now and again. And when I say odd… 😁
