Block Party Badge(1)

LET’S PARTY, Y’ALL!!! (Click here each time you visit)

It’s finally here!  It’s September and we are embarking on an awesome journey…a 30 day, multi-blog tour!  We have a total of 51 blogs participating this month and we ask that each day, as a new link opens up on a new tour stop, that you go by and pay that blog a visit.  While you’re there, take a moment and read their blog post, check out their books, leave comments, LIKE their page and then share their page all over social media!  Each stop that you leave a comment on, you will be entered into the random drawing for that blog’s DAILY GIVEAWAYS!  At the end of the 30 day tour, if you have left a comment anywhere along the way, your name will be entered for our grand prizes below:


*1st/Grand Prize:  $100 Amazon Gift Card


*2nd/Grand Prize:  4 FREE 60-second commercial ads on 4 of our RAVE WAVES BlogTalkRadio Shows


*3rd/Grand Prize:  Book Bundle {10 books of your choice from the Kathryn C. Treat Book Giveaway Treasure Chest}


*4th/Grand Prize:  3-day Weekend Blog Tour Sponsored by 4WillsPublishing


*5th/Grand Prize:  A *LIVE* interview on an upcoming segment of a RAVE WAVES BlogTalkRadio Show

  1. […] to support and promote other writers… ya-dee… ya-dee… ya-dah! We had a month-long Back to School Book Blog Block Party for that too, at the end of summer – that was great fun as we gave away prizes for people who […]


  2. Congratulations to all the Grand prize winners! We all had lots of fun getting to know one another better through each and every blog.❤


  3. Hi all! The blog Party was a fabulous week. I got to put faces and personalities to what were before just names. Now I am starting to think of them as friends. I won three great books: Rebecca Reilly’s Into Dark Waters, Bruce Borders’ Inside Room 913, and Tales from the Family Tree by Ernestine Rose. I owe these friends reviews. Jan talked in her post about whipping her TBR list into a corner. Good for her. My list has left me battered and bloodied in another corner, but I am fighting back, slowly, but with gritted teeth and determined mien and I WILL eventually post these reviews.


  4. I won a generous supply of goodies from Beem, including his book, JAZZ BABY and a great book tote! I was always planning to buy this book, and it is on my TBR for sure. What an original idea and fun experience this event was!


  5. I won Bravura by Lisa Kirazian (just finished reading it), Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a real learning experience for me.


  6. Congratulations to all the BIG winners!!! Thanks to Rave Reviews Book Club for Making us all Winners! I’m looking forward to the next Block Party!


  7. Congratulations to all the winners. It was wonderful to win prizes. It was great to visit such a diverse range of sites, and pick up ideas on how to blog about books.


  8. Congrats to all the winners. YAY


  9. Thank you very much! Quite an honor…and very unexpected. The Blog Tour and the great folks who I got to interact with were more than reward enough.

    Thanks Nonnie and all of the folks at RRBC – ML


  10. Woo Hoo!!! Many congratulations to KT, Adam, Joy, Jenny and Michael and everyone else who hosted and/or supported the Block Party. And roll on the next one!😀


  11. I really enjoyed the block party and I am hoping we do something similar again in the future.

    I also won a couple of prizes along the way and had a blast learning some new tidbits about my peers here in the club.

    Congratulations to the five grand prize winners!

    We have an awesome club – that makes us all winners!


  12. What a brilliant party this was. I won some amazing prizes including books and my first book trailer, which I can’t wait to see! Congratulations to all of the winners and blog hosts. Thank you to Nonnie and RRBC, as it was such a lot of work for you to set this up and I really appreciate all of the effort you put in to make the blog tour rock!


  13. Yepee!!! I won the third prize! How great is that?:) Thank you so much all fellow #RRBBC authors for selecting me as a winner. Back-to-School Blog Party was a great program indeed. I can’t wait for the next one.😀


  14. I was so happy to receive three great prizes. 1. A weekend tour with 4Wills Publishing. 2. A copy of Jazz: America;s Gift by Richie Gerber. 3. Legend of the Walking Dead: Igbo Mythologies by Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko. Thank you for each. This was a super event.


  15. I won super ebooks, a signed print copy of Mystic Tea, a signed original cover print of Shadow of the Drill and two Shadow of the Drill mugs. What a haul for just participating and having fun!


  16. Just received the gorgeous Dreamless Roads t-shirt I won at the Blog Party – beautiful:)


  17. Wow…this was an AMAZING party! I loved meeting the authors and tasting their treats of excerpts, trailers, funny antidotes and so much more. I won two incredible prizes: Rebecca Reilly’s Diary of a Christian Woman and Mistral Dawn’s Taken by the Huntsman. Thank you both very much! And, THANK YOU Nonnie for leading us on this magical journey.

    September 16, 2015 The Works of J. B. Hawker: EBook – The First Ladies Club
    September 30, 2015 As The Spirit Moves Me: I won a $5.00 Amazon Gift Card!!
    It’s so nice to be a winner!! Thank you NJ for dreaming up this fabulous party!!


  19. What a blast that Block Party was! I had 2 dates, one at the beginning and one at the end and thoroughly enjoyed both of ’em!😀
    I won three times in all – huge thank yous to John Fioravanti for the fantastic Amazon gift voucher that’s fizzing away in my account waiting for a certain Book 2 of a sci-fi series to come out…😉 ; and for 2 lovely paperbacks – Polish Your Prose from Harmz & The Miracle Ship from Brian O’Hare. Reviews will be going up fairly soon once I get the TBR whipped into a corner😛


  20. Our Back-To-School- Book & Blog Party was the best thing that happened to us #RRBC authors this year. It was so interesting, it went by so fast. I won a total of four really great prizes. All were unexpected wins, and for that i am grateful. Thank you Nonnie for coming up with such a great idea, and I look forward to next year’s party.😀


  21. Great Party! So sorry its over – but I have a lot of new Twitter/FB friends and authors that I can follow – Thanks Nonnie and RRBC!


    1. And we follow back Michael.:)


  22. Great party and so much fun. I visited every blog and only one late. It was nice learning more about the members of RRBC and their books and blogs. Loved it.


  23. What a fabulous party. It was so much fun. I visited every blog and found some brilliant new books to read. Each blog was different and interesting. Well done Nonnie for having the idea in the first place! Roll on the next one!


  24. I’ve never been so sad to see September end. It was an exhausting month for me, but this party kept me looking forward to something fun each and every day. I rarely win anything, and I won three times here which is awesome! Well, technically, I won four times because my first big win was making the decision to be a part of this group since it gave me the opportunity to meet all of you!❤:-) See you all in tweet nation, and I'm looking forward to December. Now, I've got to figure out how to create a book trailer! lol!


  25. Aghhhh, wait – September can’t be over!!!!!! Waaaaaa! But seriously – what a joyous month of camaraderie and support! Thank you!!!


  26. What a great month this was, Nonnie! Sorry to see it end and I will be looking forward to December!
