Welcome to the 2nd 2017 TREAT READS BLOG HOP! #RRBC #RRBCTreatReads




Join us beginning Tuesday, 9/18/18 thru Sunday, 9/30/18 for another “TREAT” READS BLOG HOP!  We’re celebrating the Grand Prize Winner, the 1st Place Runner Ups and the Finalists, for a job well done in the 2017 KCT INT’L LITERARY AWARDS Contest!

These members of RRBC have penned and published some really great reads and we’d like to honor and showcase their talent.   All of the listed Winners are RWISA members!  Way to go RWISA!

This is a different kind of tour as we are focusing on the book itself and not so much the author of the book.  We ask that you do the same…lend your focus to the book.  Make it all about the book!  Purchase a copy of the book! Really push the book!

Please drop by each stop along the “hop” and pick up a copy of the title being promoted that day.  After reading it, we’d love it if you left a review. There will be multiple books on tour throughout the next 13 days of this tour, so please bookmark this page so that you can follow along.

Also, for every comment that you leave on a blog site along this tour, including on this page, your name will be entered into a drawing for a gift card to be awarded at the end of the tour!

If you have signed on to host this event, we ask that each day you promote the books below by putting up on your blog, the material sent to you and/or promoting the book heavily via your social media forums.  Please always use the #RRBC #RRBCTreatReads hashtags in the promotion of each book.


1) The goal is to have a different book profiled each day, on as many blog sites as possible. We will send you a schedule of all the books on tour, along with the book cover and book blurb for each, for you to post onto your blog on that book’s designated day;

2) You will put each book up on its designated day on your blog. We ask that you put up the book cover, the blurb and anything else you’d like to say about the book, to make your blog post unique. If you’ve read the book, you can even share your review of it;

3) We encourage you to tweet about the books on tour whether they are being profiled on your site or not. Please always use the hashtags #RRBC #RRBCTreatReads in all promo tweets during the hop. We also ask that you share these books on all your social media platforms.

Again, this tour runs for 13 days, with a different book being profiled on as many blogs as possible, each day. You may elect to support all 13 days, or if you can’t host each day, we would greatly appreciate you hosting on the days you can.  Each day, the book that’s on tour for that day, will be linked and highlighted below.


Those members who have officially signed on to help us promote, will be listed below so that you can watch out for their tweets of support and help aid them in promoting each book.

If you’d like to help, just follow along with the schedule above, promoting each book on its designated day!

    Charles W. Jones, your website hosting Peggy today says it accepted my comment but the comment is still there in the editing mode. So I just left it alone. I hope you got it. Peggy, Congratulations on your book tour today!

    I have had trouble posting comments on a couple of blogs too. One of them was Wendy Scott’s blog. I left Twitter replies trying to get in touch. Hopefully they will see them.


    1. Hi Shirley,
      On this blog, the comments won’t show until I’ve approved them – sometimes there’s an issue with the browser you’re using not syncing with the site (and I can’t do anything to fix this). Others have left comments ok.


      1. Shirley Harris-Slaughter | Reply

        Hi Wendy, yes your blog didn’t indicate that it had received my comment and that’s why I was concerned. Its all good in the endl. lol


  9. Hi Bette, Thank you for hosting me on the blog tour. I couldn’t figure out how to comment on your page — I’m sure it’s my analog self at work again — but wanted to let you know I truly appreciate it.

    I just finished scheduling up to 5 days for the first set of members whose books are being featured. I love my new website which was revamped by 4WillsPublishing. It was easier than ever to schedule my posts. Thank you Nonnie Jules. I’m yawning and getting ready to turn off this computer now. Hope I get a notice that the first schedule is live.

  18. This is a great selection of #RRBC and #RWISA books – I intend to feature every one of them. As KCT winners they all deserve to be read and promoted by our members. So let’s make some noise!!! #RRBCTreatReads #RRBC
