I love Nonnie’s On The Shelf Interviews! I have been fortunate to have been included in her interviews and loved being able to share a little about myself with her.


Nonnie’s 12 Days of “Authors!”

In today’s blog post, Christmas Bells and Rave Reviews Book Club, I talk about the many virtues of the club and why I love being a part of this group of nearly 600 authors and readers.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered I had been chosen as one of Nonnie’s 12 Days of “Authors!” on her blog post Nonnie Writes. This is just another reason I love being a part of this group and garnering the support of Nonnie Jules, author of Daydream’s Daughter/Nightmare’s friend, The Good Mommies’ Guide to Raising (almost) Perfect Daughters, and Sugarcoatin’ Is For Candy & Pacifyin’ Is For Kids!. Please hop on over and read her blog post and follow along to find out who is next on her 12 Days of “Authors!” list.



Christmas Bells and Rave Reviews Book Club

Give yourself the gift of a membership in Rave Reviews Book Club.  This is our last membership Recruiting Day of the Year.  All members are actively inviting friends, family, and social media contacts to become members.  This is not your ordinary book review club. Our membership director has lowered the membership fee from $25 to $15 for this one day. Membership for non-authors is $10.00.

Club members receive daily support through tweets and RT’s. Three new Books of the Month are chosen monthly and highlighted on various social media platforms. Another wonderful perk is being selected as the Spotlight Author and hosted on many blogs during a one week period.  Rave Reviews Book Club is continually thinking of new ways to support our authors with #PUSHTUESDAY’s, Member of the Week, and Member of the Month. RRBC works hard to provide incentives and a growing number of books for our readers to choose from.  I am very happy to be a part of such an AWESOME group.

I was honored to be chosen as a “Spotlight” author this year and I gained tremendous support from my fellow club members and saw an increased number of sales and visits to my blog and website.

If you are a new author and need help, Rave Reviews Book Club can help you with that as well through its Mentor Program.

RRBC is the brainchild of author Nonnie Jules and in less than a year we have grown to nearly 600 members. The club is planning a conference next summer, is about to publish its first anthology, and will soon be celebrating the “RAVE AWARDS”

What are you waiting for?  This is a great time to join.  Please head over the Rave Reviews Book Club’s FAQ Page and read all about it.  Oh, and don’t forget to mention that Kathryn sent you when you sign up.


This is an awesome blog tour and I am very happy to have been a part of it.

Watch Nonnie Write!

We’d like to take a moment to give thanks to all the blog tour hosts, Rave Reviews Book Club members and the many others who supported these awesome authors on their SURPRISE 3 author/7 Day/40 Blog Tour!  A great time was had by all.  And although there were not a multitude of blog posts at each stop, that was never the intention of the tour.  As mentioned, this tour was a surprise to, and for these authors, and because of that factor, 4WillsPublishing, the sponsors of the tour, had to become creative in their ideas for each blog.

This tour was designed to introduce these 3 authors and their books to the readership of every blog they sat on.  The good thing that was found at each stop, was a different inspiration, motivational, positive and/or humorous quote that aptly applied to the tour.  Again, that was the intention…

Another great interview on “On The Shelf With Nonnie Jules” featuring John Howell. I am glad to see that Nonnie has added some extra bolts to the shelf to insure no more near falls. That shelf is really high up!

Guest Post by John Howell: Joining the RRBC

I have been in the “spotlight” and it is fabulous! I have to say the light was pretty warm this summer when I was in the spotlight but I basked in its warmth and the fellowship of an amazing group. I am excited that John has been chosen as this week’s Spotlight Author.

Take it, John! 🙂
