Support From Rave Reviews Book Club

I recently found an eclectic, highly supportive, rather large group of authors and readers, who are very active in social media, called Rave Reviews Book Club. When I advertised my blog tour for Catchpenny: Wicked Lover on Twitter, one of the group members reached out to me to offer a promo post on her blog, Right the Writer. Check it out HERE.

The thing that I like about this group is that it’s organized and professional; rules and guidelines are specific and clearly stated. For example, review “swapping” is not allowed. Reviewing at least four books a year by a fellow RRBC member is required, and there are so many members that you are sure to find something up your alley. Honest reviews are encouraged, with the understanding that one should simply not review a book that won’t receive a generally positive review. No foul language or slamming is allowed, and after reading some of the hateful reviews on Goodreads…whew! Thank goodness for a safe haven.

I joined RRBC when I was in the midst of publishing my first two books, three months apart. So, I’ve been too busy to interact as much as I’d have liked. One thing they do that I’m really interested in is their “Pay it Forward” week, when one author is spotlighted and other members drop all their own marketing efforts for the whole week to support that author. Now that I am nearing the end (for now) of my own marketing campaign and so ready to just write, I’m definitiely going to get involved in that.

In this group, there seems to be something for everyone. I highly recommend checking it out: Rave Reviews Book Club. And thanks again for featuring me and Catchpenny on your beautiful blog, Right the Writer, Ani!
