Rave Reviews Book Club (#RRBC)
The Club that makes a writer, and a starter feel like a winner!

My meeting with the Rave Reviews Book Club started by chance. After publishing my first book, I relied solely on my friends and family to read, review, and post their reviews on the on-line stores where they bought their copies. I didn’t know what else to do beyond that.

Then I published my second book. This time, I decided to go looking for help in getting the words out. It was during this search that I came across the RRBC, and a couple of other sites of writers’ forums. Of all the ones I researched, RRBC was only one stood out. It was the answer I received from Nonnie, founder of the RRBC that peeked my interest.

My question for Nonnie was, “Do you charge for your reviews, and if you do, how much?”

The answer came back almost immediately. “No, we do not charge for our reviews. As a member, you read and review your co-member’s books, and they do the same with your books.” And she invited me to join and try it out. To tell the truth, I did not believe that such a thing existed, because all the other forums that answered my query had one twist or another about their service, you heard me, service.

I joined any way, and my first shock came the day after my joining. I was inundated with an outburst of welcomes, from people I didn’t know or ever met, who were simply happy that I joined their group. I ticked that, inwardly, as a plus. Then I started reading and reviewing, not much tweeting. I didn’t know how. It took me only one week as a member before I was taught how to engage with others on line. Thank you Nonnie Jules, Shirley Slaughter, and Harmony Kent for initiating me, first into the group, and then about how to navigate the group and the outside world.

Since then, I have experienced the most wonderful support that I never envisioned. I was looking for something small, just enough to get along, and I landed myself into something huge, that has launched me and my writing into a circle wider than my wildest dreams. Thank you my fellow RRBC members. You all are the best! Since joining, I have come across some extraordinary reads that can pass as “Best Sellers,” and have had conversations, and help from people I could never have met in my life. Thank you again RRBC authors.

I just want you all to know that to date, I have read and reviewed so many member books, and counting, mostly because I love reading, but also because these books are readily assessable. So, I fill my Kindle with them. I don’t let any promo pass me by!

So far, I have been profiled in all ways possible. My first was when I won a spot on the shelf. As if that was not enough, I won the book of the month spot after that, and a member of the week to follow. I have been on the WillsPublishing book tour twice, and bracing for more. You may want to know that WillsPublishing has many wonderful services, at really bottom prices, and they do good job. I have also appeared on the #RBCBeyond the Cover radio blog show. One day I was listening to the “Author Scoop” Radio Talk when I heard my book being profiled. I started tweeting like mad. That is one show at which anything can happen. All of the above did not happen in one day. It took me some time before I started seeing the result of my hard work. And when it started, it rained.

Guys, it is true! RRBC is the place to profile, support, and promote, and you will receive the same treatment a hundred times over. They say that while you are pointing one finger away from yourself, four others are pointing back at you. Never tire from promoting others. Just remember, the more you do, the more it comes back to you. I thank you all.

Useful Links



As an extension of my post yesterday I have decided to compile a list of services that are available to indie authors. Sometimes it can be really difficult, especially when you’re starting out, to know what you’re looking for. Even after you decide to do something it can still be tough to find those out there who can facilitate your project.
So I asked on Facebook for those who provided author services to share links so that I could make a list. Some of these service providers I have used some I have not. It’s up to you to use this list as a starting point. It’s a resource for your research. Some of the services offered will be free and others you will have to pay for, but you will have to create a contract with the provider before you commit to services.
So, check out the websites, do…

We Are Waiting And Watching Chief!

Nigeria’s President Buhari Fires Heads of Military Defence Staff

Nigeria sacks four military chiefs

Nigerian President Buhari Replaces Top Military Chiefs Amid Boko Haram Violence

At last!!! Nigeria’s new head of state, Ret. Gen. Buhari has done what we have been asking to be done for month, since the abduction of the Chibok girls. The above screaming headlines that appeared on the news today, have brought some relief, and I am sure that many who have being following the events of Boko Haram in Nigeria must have also felt relief. Those top military brass and their counterparts in the other arms of the military deserved not only to be sacked. I hope they will also be probed. It will not be enough to sack them, and let them off that easy, maybe with full military benefits even, not minding the damage they have done to the country due to their indolence.
How could they ever explain the fact that, at their watch, Boko Haram laid waste to parts of the country, and continues to do so? How could they even think that it is okay to live it up in Abuja, while sending off to the battle front ill equipped soldiers to do their dirty job?
In Nigeria, anything goes!

It will never be okay that we have, or supposed to have a military that allowed Boko Haram to last this long in Nigeria, long enough to do so much damage to the people, and the image of Nigeria.
If this reshuffle, does not bring about the required change, which is the total annihilation of Boko Haram, the military should be completely reshuffled from down up. A probe committee should be set up immediately to begin to clean out corruption. It can be done.

Buhari’s (Nearly) Bare Cabinet

About Buhari’s nearly bare cabinet, for which he has been dubbed “Baba Go Slow.” The man should be left alone to take all the time he needs to come up with, who knows, a formula that will work. The important thing is that after all the waiting, he comes up with a viable and winning formula. Let him take all the time he needs.
Nigeria is a hard nut to crack!

When I read yesterday that he is taking a 50% pay cut, I smiled. As far as I am concerned, that is all for show. He doesn’t need to tell us. If he has taken a cut, we will know. We are watching!
