    I enjoyed the trivia question part of the show today, #RRBCBeyondTheCover, but I will definitely have to try and be more prepared. So have to dust off the memory bank and pay attention. Nice show Marlena.

      Good job to you Beem and good luck to both you and Marlena. The person doing these shows have to be dependable and dedicated and you two are the epitome of professionalism. Everybody can’t do this.

  11. Just what does Rave Waves Blog Talk Radio do for #RRBC members? It gives them a chance to speak on their work, in their own voices, in their own words. It’s all about the guest at Rave Waves. Can’t beat FREE publicity for that book you’ve written!

    1. OMG Nonnie – trickier than sitting on your shelf…?! 😮 I think Liz’s butterflies have gone and laid some eggs in MY tummy and they’re hatching out right NOW and wreaking havoc!!! Luckily I think they’re chocolate caterpillars so I’m going to start eating some right away (chocs not caterpillars lol) so I can zone out until Saturday! 😛

      Looking forward to it although it’s my very 1st time EVER on radio (on or off the web) but that’s what butterflies are for, right? lol
