TIME TO PARTY!!!!!! (Click when you enter)

It’s almost that time of year when those wonderful holiday feelings catch hold of us and we just can’t shake them!  Children begin to get antsy because they know that just as soon as Halloween is over, the rest of the year whizzes on by.  It’s also the time when moms and dads take their vacations and we all know what we like to do on vacation?  WE LIKE TO REST AND READ! 

Welcome to RRBC’s 2019 OCTOBER-WEEN BOOK, BLOG & TRAILER BLOCK PARTY!  Yes, we’re combining them all into one big event!

We’ve had many conversations in the past about the need for visitors to engage and leave comments on our blog posts – and we all know just how hard it is at times to even get visitors to drop by.   Well, during the entire month of October, we will give the world an opportunity to learn more about us, purchase copies of our books, gain new followers to our sites, as well as encourage comments that spark conversations on our blog posts!  For 31 days, we will host one of the largest collective blog tours in the history of blog tours!

We are suspending all other club promotions during the month of October so that we can focus on ensuring that this event is a GRAND success!!!!  We will push each blog HEAVILY on it’s designated day and there will be HUGE GRAND PRIZES at the conclusion of the block party and awesome DAILY PRIZES! Let’s allow our minds to be introduced to some NEW books, and maybe get into some NEW genres we’d never thought we’d be interested in before.  It’s going to be loads of FUN, just like in years past!

Let us answer a few  questions you might have, below:


What does it all entail?

OCTOBER-WEEN BOOK, BLOG & TRAILER BLOCK PARTY is a 31-day blog tour promotion for the members of Rave Reviews Book Club! No need for blog tour hosts, as each member who registers their blog to participate, will profile their own books on their own blogs.  With the registration form below, members can ‘request’ the date they’d like to have their blog on tour.  We will profile and promote 1 blog per day, which means if you’re interested in having your blog pushed on October 1, then you must be the first person to select that date. (DATE SELECTION IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE so reserve your spot now!).

What are the HUGE grand prizes?

*1st/Grand Prize:  $50 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 Blog Tour Sponsored by 4WillsPublishing

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

Is there a fee to participate?

Yes, there is a $5 fee for each blog entered.

*Is there anything else I would have to do to participate?

To make this October-Ween Book, Blog & Trailer Block Party so much fun, we MUST entice visitors to our sites.  To do this, we are asking each blog entered to please donate to our Daily Prize Giveaways with their choice of any of the following:  Amazon, B&N, Walmart, Target, iTunes, etc. gift cards (in any amount), e-books, paperbacks, book swag (such as t-shirts, mugs, book bags, phone cases, etc. with your logo or book’s cover design).  Any great gift item you’d like to donate would make this event that much more fun!  You’re only required to donate ONE item per blog entered, but feel free to offer as many “goodies” “door-prizes” etc. to make the folks really want to engage on your blog.


*How do blog visitors enter to win prizes?

*Each time a visitor leaves a comment on a blog stop, his/her name will be entered into the drawings for our Grand Prizes at the end of the tour; 

*Each time a visitor leaves a comment on a blog stop, his/her name will be entered into the drawings for DAILY PRIZES at each stop; 

Comments will be collected at each blog stop by 12 midnight, CST, (at the close of each day) and winners will be announced the very next day!  Winners of the GRAND PRIZES will be announced at the close of the tour.
