Are you expecting a rave? Good … That’s what you’re getting.
Firstly let me shed some light on my previous experiences online …
My memoirs, ‘Empty Chairs” and “Faint Echoes of Laughter.” were both originally Traditionally published. Sadly, my publisher closed their doors, and my work disappeared from view.
I was gutted.
My confidence levels were at an all time low, and the thought of self-publishing was shoved to the end of my ‘Can do’ list.
I had made some lovely friends on line, and spent the next four-years on my old blog “Soooz Says Stuff” site, blogging, actively promoting contests that I created, promotions, new releases etc. You know the drill. “Soooz Says Stuff” had a total of 287 followers.
I was well in to writing my first thriller, loving the journey but having no end vision for what I would do with it when it was complete.
Like many of us; I was utterly hopeless at promoting my own work. My comfort zone was in bringing attention to the works of folks I admired.
Then, only four-months ago I stumbled upon Rave Reviews Book Club.
I read and re-read the rules of the club, took a close look at what they were doing and more importantly just how they went about it. I liked what I saw.
That was only four-short-months ago.
Let me share a few statistics with you, for both prior to #RRBC & AFTER Joining.
BEFORE #RRBC =June 2016 … 1423 Followers on Twitter. NO new followers in June.
AFTER Joining #RRBC= July 2016 …2052 Followers on Twitter. 629 NEW FOLLOWERS.
I took part in a wonderful blog party tour hosted by #RRBC It was THE most commented on and successful post I’ve ever had. My friend list exploded! My TBR grew huge.
This trend has continued … as at around five-minutes ago, My Followers on Twitter number 3580. I have almost tripled my Followers.
My book “Acts Beyond Redemption” was selected as one of #RRBC’s OCTOBER books of the month. The response and huge support of the #RRBC community garnered me more sales than I had ever had of my book, and the reviews just keep on coming.
AND THEN! Yes there’s more, I was interviewed live from Sydney to the USA and beyond on
And as if that weren’t enough #RRBC are having another party online this time it’s
Yes, I am taking part! My trailer and post is scheduled for NOVEMBER 22nd, and I am extremely excited, and why wouldn’t I be?
One of THE most important things to note about the ‘reviews’ is that this club INSISTS on HONEST reviews. If the book is amazing then of course say so. BUT if you can only offer a constructive review and rate it less than 4/5 stars, then you are encouraged to do so. Honest Reviews mean exactly that.
RRBC is achieving something very important here, the club recognizes talent, and does everything it can to promote and share that talent. That support translates into the “bottom line.”
I am and always have been a huge supporter of Indie Authors if I admire their work.
I have finally found a warm supportive home where all of us are like-minded. And to TOP all of this amazing stuff, My memoir “Empty Chairs” and Faint Echoes of Laughter” are BOTH sitting comfortably in the TOP 100 in their genre In Kindle in the U.K.
Color me CONTENT! Don’t wait…pop in and take a look at #RRBC this is one place where you get out of the club, exactly what you put into it.
My blog now … this one … has in excess of 7000 followers! Just a ‘tad’ different to the old blog at 287. AND THEN SOME!
So … Do YOURSELF a huge favor…Take a look. I’m so delighted that I did.
