Hi, and welcome to “Rave Reviews by Nonnie Jules” and “Rave Reviews Book Club”!

Rave Reviews by Nonnie Jules is a site designed specifically for reviews done by the author, Nonnie Jules. If you would like to have your book(s) reviewed by her, please submit your request by clicking here.

Rave Reviews Book Club is a virtual book club made up of authors and readers. The reviews of the Book Club are not necessarily the same as the reviews of the author, Nonnie Jules and vice versa. Books reviewed by the club will be selected by the Book Selection committee.  We encourage each of you to join, especially if you are an author, as we expect that the books we select to propel the careers and sales of authors. The more members of the club, the more successful and stronger our collective voices will be.  For more info on the club, please visit our FAQ page.

For those of you who are new to book clubs, here is how this one works:  Once the club has made selections (our selections are posted over to the right), members should get their copy of the selected books, read and then post their reviews on Amazon, B&N.com or whatever other forum they use for reviews.  Then, once the club meets on it’s scheduled meeting date, all members are invited to join in with the discussion.  When circumstances allow, the author will also be a part of the discussion for Q & A.  After our meeting/discussion, a collective review of the monthly selections will be posted under Book Club Reviews.  Please be mindful of the club’s selections, as it is our hope to support, and propel the awareness and sales of each author during their selection period.

{The Mission of Rave Reviews Book Club is to Profile, Promote & Propel the careers of indie authors.  The only way that WE can do that, is by supporting each of our authors with book sales and reviews.  If you are an individual who is in the habit of skimming through the FREE sample that is given by Amazon, and then “claiming” to have purchased and read, this may not be the club for you.  We encourage and hope that each of our members will run out and “PURCHASE” (either in e-book or paperback format) the selected author’s books AND when finished with the complete read, post an honest “REVIEW”.  When it is your turn and your book is in that wonderful seat of being Profiled, Promoted & Propelled, you will want the same courtesy extended to you.  We proudly work on the HONORS SYSTEM here at #RaveReviewsBookClub}

Thanks for stopping by!  Please support Indie authors and help us to bring books back and encourage more reading by re-tweeting on Twitter and sharing this page on Facebook and your other social media sites.

We look forward to your support and your membership.  Do tell your friends about us!!!

  1. I got my copy of the anthology today. I can’t wait to read it!

  2. I also wantef to thank those of you who hosted and/or visited the stops along the Triple R blog tour. It was such a great experience to share that tour with Shirley & Harmony, & the support that we received was mindblowing! I can’t thank Nonnie & 4Wills enough for putting together such an awesome surprise for us. You all are the most AMAZING group of people that I’ve met in a very long time. ♡😊😊

  3. First off, I’m so sorry for my reduced Twitter presence the last week and a half or so. Between health issues & a dying phone, I just wasn’t able to be online as much as I usually am. BUT I now have a new phone, so I’ll be back on Twitter today. I’ve missed my #RRBC friends, & will be RTing you again soon. ♡

    1. I thought as much Rhani. Thank God you are back, and try to take things easy. Merry Christmas.

      1. Thank you, Joy. I could deal with the phone until it lost the ability to hear my voice, which meant I could no longer use voice recognition and had to physically type. Um…yeah. That went SO well. Lol But my new phone is awesome so I shouldn’t have any more trouble. Saw my uber eye dr yesterday & got another shot, so hopefully that will stabilize my vision a little. I hate the stupid #eyeneedles, but they do help so…I guess it’s all good. Merry Christmas, my friend, & a most blessed holiday season to you & yours.

    2. So glad to have you back, Rhani!

      Thanks so much, Jackson! I am so pleased you enjoyed it so much! :)

  13. Hello all, I wanted to let you know I posted reviews on Amazon and Goodreads for Destroyed by L.A. Starkey. What a great series she has going. Her third book is to be out in January. I’m not one to wish my life away but I wish it were January so I could get that book. As far as I’m concerned they are wonderful.

    1. Awww.. That’s Shirley! I sure do appreciate that positive feedback. :) Made my day.

    2. Shirley, you are a great writer. Even your little posts in here are convincing. I’m putting this on my TBR!

  14. Hello. I’m a new member on RRBC and happy to announce that a scene from my debut novel, Prisoner Prodigal Pawn, won “best scene from a novel” for the month of November 2014 at the WildSound Festival.

    1. Thank you Shirley!! I appreciate the support. :)

  16. Jon passed awsy a few hours ago. On behalf of myself & his aunt, I want to thank you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers. Heaven has a new jewel, & the stars will shine a little brighter tonight. ♥☆♥

    1. I am so sorry for your loss, Rhani – please accept my condolences. I can’t imagine your pain, but I will pray that God will help you and Jon’s aunt to bear the grief. Be assured of my continued prayers.

      1. John, thank you so much. I appreciate thst so much tonight. Still trying to accept that he’s gone.

      2. Your in my thoughts and prayers. Sending love and light your way.

      2. *Michelle, sorry.Blind woman with a stylus. Add tears & I’m amazed I can spell anything right.

      Rhani, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be going through. All of you remain in my prayers and heart, and I offer my deepest condolences. With much love, Harmony <3 xxx

      1. Thank you, Harmony, I really appreciate that. He was an amazing man, & one of my favorite kids, so this is hard.

    4. My heart breaks for you, Rhani. I can’t imagine losing a child. You and your family are in my prayers.

      1. Thank you, Beem, that’ s so sweet.Jon wasn’t exactly a child, he was 50. But he was part of my family for more than 30 years & I can’t wrap my head around it. At all.

    5. Wishing you peace on this journey, rhani. xox rea

    6. Sorry for your loss. I pray the good memories you shared help to ease the pain.

      1. Isabel, thank you. We had 30 years to make memories, & I’m so glad I have them to keep him close.

    7. I am so sorry for your loss. We will keep all of you in our prayers.

    8. May his soul rest in peace.

      1. Thank you, Joy. He was a very spiritual man so I believe that he will.

    9. Rhani, I can’t imagine your pain. I pray that God would hold you and Jon’s aunt close in His arms and give you comfort. I’m so sorry.

      1. Tamie, thank you so much for the kind thoughts. *Hugs*

    10. Rhani, I was so saddened to hear about your story:( I apologize, I haven’t been keeping up with the comments on here, so I just saw it today. May God cover you and your family with his mercy and peace from this day forward. I have lost several people close to me who were very young. It is a difficult thing to go through, but let your faith keep you strong, and help you dwell on the 30 amazing years you shared with him. God bless.

      1. Thank you, Traci, I appreciate your words of comfort.

    11. Oh my goodness. :(

      My heart aches for you loss as it is unfortunately something that is seemingly universe to experience. I’ll be praying for your and Jon’s family. I know heaven rejoices to receive back one of it’s own, but those of us left here ache with that loss. I know our great God will remind you of the good times and help to wrap comfort and grace around you as you go though this. I pastor at my church, so know we will be lifting you up there and if you need someone to talk with or to pray with – I know we’re new friends, but I’m happy to be one of those people.

      1. Thank you so much for the words of comfort. Friends, even new friends, are such a blessing at a time like this. I know it’s all in God’s plan, but still so hard to take. He was in my life for just 30 years, not enough time. I have great memories, though, so many shared adventures. I’ll always be grateful that we had our time together.

    12. I’m so late, but my sincere condolences on your loss, Rhani.

      1. Thank you, Kish. Sometimes it’s nice when messages trickle in. *Hugs* It gives me a few moments to reflect, and…smile.

  17. This probably isn’t the appropriate place to post this but I didn’t know where else to do it. One of my heathen kids is in hospital in full kidney failure. They are doing emergency dialysis but things are not looking good, and it is questionable if he will survive the night. So…if you could plesse send prayers, healing thoughts, etc to Jon & his family it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Rhani, I’m so sorry to hear this. Jon will be in our prayers tonight, tomorrow and going forward. So glad you listed his name as I always like to know who I’m sending prayers up for, so that there will be no confusion, as I truly believe our God is overwhelmed with our prayers and requests. When I get on my knees tonight, he’s first on my list, darling. You take care of you in spite of all this, OK? Love, Love.

      1. Thank you, Nonnie. You are wonderful. ♥

      2. harmonykentonline

        So sorry to hear this, Rhani. My thoughts, heart and prayers are with you, Jon, and your family. <3

      3. My prayers are with you and your family, Rhani. May God bless you.

      4. Thinking of you and your family in these difficult hours…

      5. June, thank you. It’s been a rough few days.

    2. Sorry Rhani to hear this. My prayers go out to Jon and family, and my healing thoughts to the kid. Get well Kid. Nothing is impossible to God.

      1. Joy, thank you so much for your prayers & good thoughts.

      2. You are welcome Rhani.

    Just wanted to say a general thank you for all the re tweets I have been getting from you fantastic people and also let you know I probably won’t be around much for the rest of this year. I haven’t deserted you and will be back but I’m scheduled for some routine but major surgery at the end of this month. Between not an then I have one paperback to sort and three books to edit so it will be heads down from the instant I send this message, well once I’ve made a cup of tea, of course.
    The good news is that during my recovery period I plan to do lots of reading!

    1. I wish you a speedy recovery, Kristen. Hope to see you back soon!

    2. Hope all goes well, Kristen. Will be praying for you.

    3. Kristen, you’re in all of our thoughts. Take care and come back strong!
