INTERVIEW:

Who is your favorite author?

  1. Scott Fitzgerald is my favorite. I had to read The Great Gatsby twice in school, but I didn’t connect to it until I was an adult and then I fell in love with it.

How do you describe your writing style?

I always write with humor and my main characters wear their hearts on their sleeves. My two teen series both deal with self-esteem, growing up/coming of age, and first love.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

Incredible Miracle of a Girl  made Terrorist’s Conversion

BIBLES FOR MIDEAST

hand

Sofi* (name is not real for security reasons) is the daughter of Pastor Paul, a former Muslim, presently doing Lord’s ministries.

When Sofi was 12 years old, one day she  came back home from the school with severe vomiting. Her brothers also were vomiting. They all were admitted in the hospital. Doctors said it was the cause of some food adulteration.

Later family found out that when they were coming back home from the school, a middle-aged woman supplied them chocolates.

Children used to travel to the school by a public transport bus.  The bus was thick with travellers and other students. The  woman was sitting on a seat. As soon as she saw Sofi and her brothers she smiled at them, called them by name and made arrangement for her to sit by her side. Boys also stood by her.

On the way she inquired about their parents as…

Poem In Your Pocket Day April 18th

Annette Rochelle Aben

NationalPoetryMonthPoem

The premise behind this day was to give people the opportunity to share a bit of themselves with others using poetry as the vehicle.  Of course for the writers, it would be kinda cool to share something that they, themselves wrote but you can always just carry your favorite by anyone in your pocket. How cool, to have a poem at the ready to recite or hand to someone you meet along the way.  Perhaps someone needs cheering or you are having coffee with a friend and you want them to hear your latest creation; then whip that poem out and take the floor! (of course if you take the floor, you had better be ready to replace it)

So, I have decided to keep a particular poem in my pocket today. This is from the very first book I ever self-published, Perspective, it’s all about replacing one thought with…

National Get Caught Reading Month

Annette Rochelle Aben

Promote LITERACY!  Promote READING to CHILDREN!  Promote GIVING CHILDREN EVERY ADVANTAGE in LIFE from the GET-GO!  If these statements have you shouting YES! YES! YES!, then you will want to take part in National Get Caught Reading Month, May 2016. This was the brainchild of Pat Schroeder, the former congresswoman, and President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Association of Publishers (AAP) back in 1999, when the initiative was launched.

Everyone from authors to publishers, celebrities to teachers and schools to libraries are heavily vested in this endeavor as roles models for not only children but people everywhere. It has been proven that the earlier in a child’s life they are exposed to reading, the better that child will do in school.  All things being equal there can be no guarantees but giving a child the advantage of the interaction with books, stimulates…

IN LOVING MEMORY OF KATHRYN CHASTAIN-TREAT

Jan Hawke INKorporated

We’ve just had our monthly ‘In Memory’ tribute to Kathryn C. Treat at RRBC. She was a wonderful lady and her book ‘Allergic to Life’ continues to be beacon of light to many. Kathryn was a fantastic supporter and gave me a lot of encouragement when I first joined the book club, so it’s high time I filtered some more people over to her memorial page! 😀

Kathryn C. Treat passed away on Sunday, December 21, 2014 @ 2:20 am (California time).  On Friday, Dec. 19, after having a wonderful time at our virtual Christmas party, in a virtual chat room with…

Read It? Loved It? Review It! Share It! Find Author Support at RRBC

Archer's Aim

rave-reviews-badgeI love a good book, especially in my chosen genre of Fantasy/Sci-Fi. If I read a book and love I often share my reaction to it with a review. I’ve discovered several good books from little-known authors over the last few years and I love to support them. Why? Well that review is very important to the author.

But there’s something else I like to do: share it further. Authors need reviews from their readers AND they extended support on social media. Sometimes I will post my review from Goodreads on my blog for added exposure. But I’ll also share it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other places. Recently, I’ve started adding these books to appropriate lists on Goodreads so these authors gain even more exposure.

However, there’s also another way to gain even more support: join an author/review organization. My choice is Rave Reviews Book Club where…
