Publicity Tip #83~

Depending on how long you’ve been in the book/author publicity game you will either have a good sized list of helpful publicity sites (that don’t cost an arm and a leg) or a very small one. Regardless of the length of your current list one of the best blogs I’ve discovered online that helps promote writers is The Story Reading Ape (Chris).

Chris The Story Reading Ape: The Man, The Ape, The Legend…

Chris The Story Reading Ape…Whaaaat?

When I first encountered Chris Graham, the man behind “The Story Reading Ape” I inquired as to what in the world was a story reading ape and how did he come up with that name?  He politely referred me to his about tsra page to explain the circumstances of his unique designation in the Blogosphere.  After all, everyone has to develop  their own brand…right?

On one of my next encounters with Chris, he introduced me to his favorite “characters” who back up his really mean emails reminding authors to send him their stories so that he can feature them on his blog.  At this point, I really became curious as to what this cyber person was all about!  As you can imagine, I in fact raised an eyebrow when he sent me this!!

As I continued to read on, I learned that Chris Graham (no -e- after Graham) is a multifaceted individual, the likes of which I have never before encountered in the real world!  His character boasts a reputation throughout the blogging realm of a dedication to the author and their success in the world of publishing!  There is no fee, just the satisfaction that he gets from helping fellow author/bloggers/people just… because!

Chris also featured me, Patrick Jones, author of “The Wolf’s Moon” just a few weeks ago.  I am now on the “infamous” Hall of Fame as well.  This I am truly proud to be a part of.   It was one of the most difficult “interviews” that I ever had because the assignment was to write about myself in the first person.  I really had to look introspectively in order to decide what to write about!  I finally decided to write about the book signing from my point of view as the author.  It was a day I will never forget and will live on forever!  I hope that you enjoy the story!

Please make sure to add Chris The Story Reading Ape in your author platform to promote yourself!  You will find his #Author Submission Guidelines at the top of his blog.  Good luck!!
