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. HI Everyone. Jan, perhaps something helpful for this page would be to lay out the definition of what the club sees as “supportive” . It seems that some of us are doing something wrong. Thanks

    1. Thanks Marc for highlighting something that’s been a concern for this page for a while – the information is actually all up there in the main part of the page, but perhaps it needs a bit of a spruce up so that some of the highlights look more, erm… ‘highlighted’?

      As this is the ‘go to’ page for new members and visitors alike, it’s important that we make it welcoming and inviting. Part of that whole package involves a bit of ‘way-finding’ so you get some idea of what’s going on and where to find it. Be sure that we’re always looking at ways to make the various Rave Reviews ‘gateways’ attractive and easy to use and helpful pointers like yours will go a long way to making improvements fast.

      As for being supportive – you’ve got that sussed already :-D Bottom line is that you read and review and get involved – something Rave Reviews people are ALWAYS great at! ;-)

  2. *hums theme to Jaws jauntily…* Hall/Site monitor alert!
    Friendly reminder to some new faces (and the familiar ones who perhaps got a bit fuddled as to where they were?) – your reviews can only be noted if you post them on the BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) PAGE!

    This page is for new members and visitors to find out more about the club itself and while you’re fine to ask questions, or to welcome new members in here, Beem Weeks will NOT be logging your review activity so YOU WON’T BE CREDITED FOR YOUR REVIEW if they go in this or any other area away from the CATALOG main page.

    If you have unknowingly or mistakenly posted a review in here recently, please copy/paste it on the BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) PAGE so Beem can give you your credit – he’s really NOT ignoring you, but he can’t see your update if it’s in the wrong place! :-D

    1. You are doing a splendid job, Hall/Site Monitor Jan!!! Keep up the good work. You are correct: BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) page is the proper place to post reviews. But these should also be emailed to me at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com to be sure I see them and get these reviews logged.

  3. I just bought avarice dynasty. Looking forward to the read

    1. On behalf of RRBC Board, I’d like to thank YOU, Marc, for supporting our #PUSHTUESDAY Winner DYEGO ALEHANDRO (@arcaniarts) author of “AVARICE DYNASTY: EVASION” (http:// http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WU6WQ2).
      That’s what Rave Reviews Book Club is all about – Profile, Promote & Propel. Kudos!

      However, I’ll quote/paraphrase our dear Site Monitor, Jan Hawke, who posted here on FEB 5th: “This is an information page on RRBC for visitors and new members. (…) If you want to post about a purchase please do this on the main Book Club Selection for Review (Catalog) page.”

  4. Greetings. I just reviewed “Rave Soup for the Writer’s Soul Anthology” on Amazon under my married name, Lisa Kradjian. A pleasure to be inspired by so many other writers. (Here’s the link where my review and the others are listed. Cheers.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. Your review has been logged.

    2. On behalf of RRBC Board, thank YOU for reviewing our BOM ‘Rave Soup for the Writer’s Soul Anthology’ (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QVOGEHC ). Your comments were insightful and will help other readers find this great book!

      Your support is what Rave Reviews Book Club is all about – Profile, Promote & Propel! You’re much appreciated.

      However, I’d like to invite you – and all RRBC members – to check Jan Hawke’s posts on this page about how/where to report purchases and reviews, ok? Jan’s our Site Monitor and she does her best to keep us organized (me included LOL). We keep her very busy but she is doing a great job at that, by the way! :D

  5. I just took advantage of an AWESOME 99cents deal and downloaded books 2 & 4 of Tamie Dearen’s Best Girls series. And book 3 isn’t 99cents, but I got that too! Can’t wait to read them. Book 1 is just a few down on my TBR list, and The Best Is Yet To Come was so fantastic, I can’t wait to read them all!

  6. I just posted two new reviews on Amazon.

    Miscarriage of Justice by Bruce Borders. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/review/R378ITLJNL9TY2

    Pearseus: Rise of the Prince by Nicholas Rossis. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/review/RCWIEST32872X

  7. I just purchased Jack Everette’s book, Damaged Goods and look forward to reading it. Seems to be my cup of tea.

  8. Just a friendly reminder from your Hall/Site monitor – :-D This is an information page on RRBC for visitors and new members.
    If you want to post your review info then please do this on the main Book Club Selection for Review (Catalog) page AND/OR EMAILING Beem Weeks at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com

    1. Awwwwww, I just love our HALL/SITE MONITOR!

    2. Aw, now I’ve gone all shy :-P lol

      1. Don’t blush, Jan! You are awesome! :D

    3. Welcome to our HALL/SITE MONITOR, Jan Hawke. I can see your handwork already. Please Keep it up! :)

  9. I reviewed “The Glade” by Harmony Kent on Amazon. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1SFT566LO498Z

    I also reviewed “Her Best Match” by Tamie Dearen. The Amazon Link is: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2S51UEOQ9WA9X

    Both are exceptionally good books.

  10. Have bought, read and reviewed Reclamation (The Legacy of Ilvania (Short Story) Book 2) Andi O’Connor (Author)

    Here is the review link from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/review/R2X3WCYUMMNEMX/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

    Here is the review on GoodReads


  11. I reviewed “The Black Bag” by P.H. SOLOMON @ph_solomon http://www.amazon.com/The-Black-Bag-P-Solomon-ebook/dp/B00LBAN73A * * * * – Four Stars #RRBC Very solid storytelling, especially for a short story

    This was a very good read and it told the short story very well. It is not my normal subject matter when I read a book but I heard good things about it through the other reviews so I wanted to give it a try.

    I agree that younger readers (teen / young adult) would likely enjoy this best as it plays more into their age group but it was enjoyable none the less.
