I was flattered to bits to be given this award by my great pal, Seumas Gallacher so I am passing it on to the most selfless author-aider I know. Chris (The Story Reading Ape) Graham.
Through his blog, plus sharing interviews all over the internet, The Ape has given enormous publicity and encouragement to budding and seasoned writers alike. This includes giving interview and article space on his blog to aspiring authors as well as publishing several series of “helpful advice” pieces by veterans of the craft. I still have no idea why he does this, only that I am very grateful, as are the other authors who have benefited from his generous assistance. This is a small opportunity to thank him very much for the smashing work he does. Massive hugs and a large OOK to you, Chris.
You can find him through the following links:
Ape, the rules for passing this Award on are very simple:
You are welcome to give it out as many times as you like, but it is only to be given to a maximum of one person per blog post. If you wish to give multiple rewards, please space the blog posts so the sincerity is maintained.
Introduce the person; say how they encourage, help or inspire you; then link to their work and/or social media profiles. There may be a specific post you wish to link to which helped you. It’s up to you.
Please publicise your award post to Twitter or Google Plus using the hashtag #writtenkindness so that others can find and follow the award winners.
