Delighted that Chris, The Story Reading Ape is going to help me out over the next couple of weeks with some of his festive posts.. This first one is fabulous and is a shot of the world from space… all lit up like a Christmas Tree decoration.

About The Story Reading Ape
It does not matter if you blog once a week, once a day or several times a day but it does matter that it is consistent. We all love the fact that people who have dropped in on the off chance keep coming back for more. In my opinion it is down to the quality of the posts and also the expectation that readers will find something of interest.
The Story Reading Ape has this down to a fine art and the list of subjects that adorn his enclosure is lengthy. He is certainly a huge supporter of Indie authors across all genres and stages of their career and offers articles and information that is invaluable.
Chris has also published a volume of his mother’s poetry
One of the reviews for the collection
A charming book that reflects a woman’s life and times in verse…and humour. Rosie and Willie had me chuckling, especially as I can see just where Willie is coming from! The poems are written from an Irish perspective, but there is much a Yorkshirewoman can recognise.
The verses about the Troubles made me think. I could feel the pain in the words. “What matters is the depth of God’s sighs.”
There are memories that I seem to remember through my own mother and grandmothers’ tales, of a time now gone and a world awakening before a young woman’s eyes.
And the story of the Old, Old Man had me in tears.
Published by her son as a labour of love, in tribute to his mother, Agnes Mae Graham’s work stands up all on its own.

Part of Chris’s immense enclosure is given over to The Great Hall of Fame… This is where Indies can exhibit their work by penning an article talking about themselves and their work. (Talk about a writers dream!) Once posted the author is then elevated to the Hall of Fame to reside with hundreds of other authors from around the world, who have taken that exciting but challenging step of being a published author. http://thestoryreadingapeblog.com/halls-of-fame/tsras-hall-of-fame/
