ABOUT RAVE REVIEWS…

 

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 Peter thanks for posting but please take note of the following so that you can be credited for your review properly –

      PLEASE POST YOUR PURCHASES, READS AND REVIEWS ON THE MAIN BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW PAGE. THANK YOU!

      The reason for this is that Beem’s spread pretty thin and if you post away from the main page he may not pick up that you’ve done the review and so you won’t get credited for it…

      BE SURE TO EMAIL BEEM at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com as well as sharing your reviews on the MAIN CATALOG page – that way your efforts won’t be missed! ;-)

  1. I just posted a review for The Place We Went To Yesterday by Lisa Mauro on Amazon and on Goodreads. Thanks!
    http://www.amazon.com/review/R2RO988ER33VB0

    1. Sorry… posted on correct page now…. :)
      How do you delete?

    2. Easy done Jennifer – I’ve done it myself when I got confused as to which page I was on (senior moments etc… ;-) ) Regrettably there’s no edit/delete button for comments – there’s a cancel reply, which of course only works if you realise you’ve gone wrong BEFORE you hit ‘post comment’! :-( C’est la vie – and it keeps me in a job with the hall monitoring :-)

      1. Lol! Thanks… I didn’t think there was a way, but I am learning new things everyday! Have a great day. ;)

  2. Normal service is (just about) resumed – it’s good to be back… ;-)

    For those who are new in town, or for those who’ve got a bit lost, a few words from Nonnie about posting reviews away from the main BOOKCLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) page…

    “ATTENTION: PLEASE POST YOUR PURCHASES, READS AND REVIEWS ON THE MAIN BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW PAGE. THANK YOU!”

    The reason for this is that Beem’s spread pretty thin and if you post away from the main page he may not pick up that you’ve done the review and so you won’t get credited for it…

    BE SURE TO EMAIL BEEM at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com as well as sharing your reviews on the MAIN CATALOG page – that way your efforts won’t be missed! ;-)

  3. My day started off great today. I had just gotten up when I found out I was selected for the honor of being this week’s #PUSHTUESDAY winner. Lovely surprise! I was soon flooded with twitter notifications and expressions of RRBC support. Thanks everyone!

    1. Congratulations Cassidy – #PUSHTUESDAYs are the best! They also seem to generate more sales too – I hope you had loads! :-D

  4. I’ve just posted my 14th review for Beth Hale’s “Magnolia Secrets” Here is the direct link for the my review on Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.com/review/RYC2DDI8FD0XP

    Like ALL of my other review this review got posted on GoodReads and two other book review sites in addition to my two RRBC approved blog sites on BlogSpot.com and WordPress.com plus a third blog site.

    Please check my reviews out.

    1. Sorry to be a little tardy in replying Robin but I just wanted to check that you also posted this – ON THE MAIN BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW PAGE? The reason for this is that Beem’s spread pretty thin and if you post away from that page he may not pick up that you’ve done the review and so you won’t get credited for it…

      BE SURE TO EMAIL BEEM at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com as well as sharing your reviews on the MAIN CATALOG page – that way your efforts won’t be missed! ;-)

  5. Just bought Souls by Jennifer Hinsman. So excited to be part of this group and to read and offer my first review. Starting it tonight!

  6. Just bought “SOULS” (A NOVEL): by Jennifer Hinsman (@JennyHinsman1), http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0085N82W2/;
    Not had a chance to read anything lately so hope I can make up for it now!

    1. Thank you so much Kristin! I really hope you enjoy it. Thanks so much for the support! :)

  7. Stanislava Kohut | Reply

    I just finished and reviewed the super sweet Luck of the Irish by the lovely Liz Gavin! I enjoyed it tremendously :) Thank you for this wonderful site, I would probably not find Liz’s great story otherwise.

    1. Hi there Stanislava – thanks for reading Liz’s great book.
      If you want Beem to pick on the review then you need to mail RaveReviewsBookClub@gmail.com ATTN: REVIEWS
      and if you like post on the main Book Club Selections for Review (Catalog) page

      1. Stanislava Kohut

        Thanks, Jan, for letting me know. I am still super new at RRBC and trying learn what to post and where :) I love supporting my fellow indie writers, so reviewing and sharing is very important to me.

      2. No problem Stanislava – we were all new once and this is a big old place so it does get confusing at first! ;-)

  8. Have just discovered this great site, I’m psyched. While it appears I just missed this month’s selections and meeting, I’m excited about being part of this next month. What a terrific idea. Love the thought of the Indie readers and writers having a meeting place to work together. Brilliant!

  9. I could have never imagined the outpouring of support that came along with being a #PUSHTUESDAY winner! Thank you all–some I know, some I don’t know–for the Promoting and Propelling of my book this week. I not only got a huge bump in interest and sales, but I now know the right way to participate for the next winner – keep Tweeting! It is wonderful to have such a community in support of our work. Hopefully, I will find a way to acknowledge everyone…this post is just a start. Thank you.

  10. I’d like to extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to my RRBC family who took the time this past week to support me as the #PUSHWEEK winner. A special note of gratitude to the members who picked up a copy of PASSION & STRUGGLE!! I hope you enjoy the read.

    1. John, you DESERVED all the attention and so much more for all your hard work and for being this incredible human being that you are. :D

  11. Just downloaded the first book of SM Spencer’s trilogy: Destiny (Absent Shadows, Book 1.) It’s free now if other members would like to support Sandy.) Here is the Amazon.co.uk link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Destiny-Absent-Shadows-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B00O6WL9IA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1429160370&sr=1-1&keywords=Destiny+%28Absent+Shadows+Trilogy+Book+1%29

    1. Thank you Brian – much appreciated 😊😊😊

    2. Think you might have posted this in here by mistake, Brian?

      Just to be clear – your reviews can only be noted if you post them on the BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) PAGE [as well as mailing Beem at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com]!

      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.

  12. […] to a very, very special post. As most of you are aware, I am the Secretary for Rave Reviews Book Club. This is a virtual book club made of authors and readers. The goal of RRBC is to Profile, Promote […]

  13. Just posted a review for Saving Toby by Suzanne McKenna
    http://www.amazon.com/review/R9MPVN18ECWPQ
    Fell in Love with the Characters, March 22, 2015
    By TC Booth

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Saving Toby (Toby & Claudia Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    This was a beautifully written story. The author captured me through the characters Toby and Claudia. I found myself rooting for their relationship to make it. I can’t wait to read the next book.
    Why no voting buttons? We don’t let customers vote on their own reviews, so the voting buttons appear only when you look at reviews submitted by others.

    1. Hey, Stuart!
      I know you’re new to RRBC so, first of all, WELCOME ABOARD and thank you for being a supportive member. :D

      However, I’ll quote Jan Hawke, our site monitor: “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!”

      Also, to ensure your review will be credited, you should remember to report it to our dearest Reviews Co-ordinator, Beem Weeks, at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com.

  14. I really like the new, clean look at the top of the page. It was getting a bit cluttered. Good job!

  15. Traci – great you’ve reviewed Jason’s book but you’ve posted about it in the wrong place – D’oh! ;-)
    Quoting from my previous post below –
    your reviews can only be noted if you post them on the BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS FOR REVIEW (CATALOG) PAGE [as well as mailing Beem at ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com]!

    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.

  16. No worries Chelo – I see you found the right place to post this up for Beem :-D

    1. Actually, emails to ravereviewsbookclub@gmail.com is the right place to alert Beem of posted reviews–though I do often search through here for reviews. Chelo, your review has been logged!

  17. *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.

  18. 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.”

  19. 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.
    (http://www.amazon.com/RAVE-SOUP-WRITERS-SOUL-Anthology-ebook/product-reviews/B00QVOGEHC/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending)

    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

  20. 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!

  21. 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

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

  23. 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
