    I love RRBC, RWISA, reading and reviewing so many wonderful books by such talented authors! I share and promote on all my media sites. Nonnie, your ideas are astounding as new promotions continue to excite me, and motivate all of us! I will share the link to my latest book, (Book # 5) Eyes of A Neighbor, https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Lynn+Hobbs%2C+Eyes+of+A+Neighbor&rh=n%3A283155%2Ck%3ALynn+Hobbs%5Cc+Eyes+of+A+Neighbor ..long link but for those of us who read for hours at a time; it is in large print! Enjoy! 🙂


  2. Just discovered this site, Nonnie, Here’s the link to my Amazon page http://www.amazon.com/J.B.-Hawker/ I’ll be sharing and promoting.


  3. Hi Nonnie,

    [I’ve purchased three books since joining Rave Review Book Club a couple of months ago, (including your Mommy book), now I have to take time to read them].

    The Brutal Illusion by Stephen Jared


  5. Hi Nonnie,
    Thanks for the listings! Having alread read “Daydream’s Daughter, Nightmare’s Friend” I will now make my way through them. In the meantime, it’d be great if you could include my Pearseus series – http://amzn.to/1jlXLj6 – among these awesome books.
    Many thanks! 🙂


  6. What a great day it was for me to join Rave Reviews Book Club. I will certainly tweet and FB this site as often as possible. Would like a kind but thoughtful review on my new poetry book (only 99 cents right now!): http://www.amazon.com/Madame-Sosostris-Explains-poetry-patchwork-ebook/dp/B00HUB4FG2


  7. Hi, Nonnie. Thanks for the listings… The link for Amazing Matilda wasn’t working from here. Should be http://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Matilda-Bette-Stevens-ebook/dp/B00AU9ZISA/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid= THANKS! p.s. I’ve followed all of the BookClubMember so far on Twitter. It’s exciting to be part of this great group. Again, many thanks! Bette


  8. Hi, Nonnie. I’ve shared on FB, Twitter & LI. I have 3 books would love to be included in your list. Here’s my Amazon page http://www.Amazon.com/author/betteastevens It’s wonderful to connect to other authors and I love to share… HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Bette

  10. Thanks for the invitation through Twitter, Nonnie. I appreciate your creating this forum. My hard-boiled detective/legal thriller novel, Cold Winter Rain, is a free download at Amazon today and tomorrow.


  11. Shirley Harris-Slaughter

    I believe in the concept of supporting other authors and people in general. I am currently reading Kathryn Treat’s book “Allergic to Life.” Everytime I get a chance to pick it up its hard to put down. I had my own health issues so had a particular interest. There is so much talent in this crop of authors. Any of the books are a great read.


  12. Great idea for a blog.
    I haven’t read any of these yet. Thank you


  13. Hi Nonnie!

    This is such a wonderful idea! I love it!

    Here’s my Amazon Author Page w/ a listing of my books: http://www.amazon.com/Michelle-Ann-Hollstein/e/B004FSAF7Q/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1370871217&sr=1-1

    Thank you so much!! 🙂


  14. Hey Nonnie! Our book – Still Here Thinking of You~A Second Chance With Our Mothers by Vicki Addesso, Susan Hodara, Joan Potter, Lori Toppel is a collaborative memoir about our experience of coming together in a writing group and ending up sharing our stories together – we each contribute memoir pieces about our very varied and unique relationships with our mothers. It is available on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, and several indie bookstores in NY & CT. Info can be found at http://www.stillherethinkingofyou.com – thank you so much for this opportunity to share our book & get the info out there. Looking forward to checking our all the “Great Reads” Peace, Vicki Addesso


  15. I have bought 3 off this list so far, I will have to wait until more money comes in before I can buy a few more. I will try to buy as many as I can off this list. If anybody needs an affordable editor then please come and find me.


  16. Nonnie you are such a generous soul! I will share this link everywhere I can and purchase as many books as I am able. I love writing about and promoting quality work! Love your idea about the book of the month. If you have access to the author, it would be nice to get them in on the discussion. I know that there are always questions about SUKI and I try to schedule group meetings as often as possible. I have found out some very, very interesting things about my readers because of it. Don’t want to say too much because my book has so many twists, but it’s always a good time!


  17. OH, and I have placed each book on my TBR list and I also plan on purchasing a copy of each book listed by Christmas as a present and special token to all my friends, colleagues, fellow writers and authors! I pray much love and success to you all!


  18. Hello all my wonderful visitors! I ask that you please add each of these books to your TBR list and actually, get around to purchasing a copy of ea, even if in e-book form and reading and posting a review of each. I am considering (in the midst of everything else that I have going on) starting an author’s reading group where we select a book a month to read and review. This should help author’s with review’s as well as with their sales. It’s all about supporting one another. We have to all stick together in this because in my world, I cannot be who i want to be until you are fully who you want to be. #CandleLighter is what I am. How bout you?


  19. Jennifer, as always, you’re welcome and we’re honored to have you!


  20. What a terrific list! I look forward to checking out all of these fabulous books! Thank you, Nonnie, for sharing them with me and for including my book! I’m honored to be on this list!


  21. I’m all over your blog tonight 🙂 Mine is ‘Falling to Pieces’ http://www.amazon.com/Falling-Pieces-L-T-Kelly/dp/1490952012/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1380580362&sr=8-6&keywords=falling+to+pieces

    Thanks 🙂


    • L.T., thanks for being ALL OVER MY BLOG!!! Makes me feel so special!! Will get you added shortly!


  22. I have shared this with a writer’s fb group, great idea. Thanks


    • Thanks so much, Adele for sharing. We have to promote INdies any and every way we can!


  23. I have flagged my email so that I can come back and add these books to my TBR list. I support other authors.


    • Thanks Kathryn! U are always ever so supportive and I so appreciate you and your kindness!
