I have posted this before, but today is Recruitment Day at the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB and I can’t say it any better than this!!
I know you hear me refer to The RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB a lot, but when I find something that is exciting and rewarding, I like to talk about it.
I first became a member of #RRBC in August, 2014. I didn’t get involved much – read my required number of books to remain active in the club, tweeted now and then, caught a RAVE WAVES Blog Talk radio show now and then and skimmed through the WEEKLY CLUB UPDATES.
I didn’t see a whole lot of benefits at the time, except that immediately, when I listed on my Profile that I was a member of the club, my Twitter followers increased substantially. Well, that was good. I now had other authors interacting on a consistent level and more opportunities to spread the word about my books.
Then, in November 2014, I received the honor of a #PUSHTUESDAY spot that showcased The Convict and the Rose. I saw an immediate spike in sales on Amazon. At the time the book was spotlighted, I had ten reviews. That number went to 25 within a few short months. Hmmmm, I thought to myself. Maybe I need to get more involved with this club because it seems to make things happen!
Long story short, I got more involved. I began supporting other members, following their blogs and helping spread the word about their books. Again, I saw a huge spike in followers of my own blog. Wow! Now that meant I had to consistently start blogging and provide interesting and interactive content.
Two more examples -I earned a spot in April 2016 on a RAVE WAVES Blog Talk Radio show where I had the opportunity to discuss and answer questions about my books and again the support I received was overwhelming.
When the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB chose my third book, Home At Last as a featured book of the month in July 2016, even more miraculous things began to happen. Up until that date, I had only eight reviews. And even though it’s not a huge number, I now have twenty.
I’ve participated in a virtual Writer’s Conference with the club, gone on numerous Block Party Blog Tours and read some absolutely amazing books by talented indie authors. In fact, at the end of 2016, I decided to put together a TOP TEN list for the books I enjoyed the most during the year. Out of the 10 books, 8 of them were #RRBC Authors! Check them out here!
All I’m saying, is that if you’re looking for a community of like-minded people to support, uplift, encourage and propel you to greater heights as an author, you might want to take a look at the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB. Go to the FAQ page for the answers to any question you might have.
Membership fees are VERY affordable and the results (IF YOU PARTICIPATE) are amazing!
This group of supportive authors and readers have POWER!
OH YES, AND ONE FINAL THING. WHEN YOU JOIN, PLEASE TELL THEM I SENT YOU!

This is amazing, Jan. I hold back from joining groups and clubs, because I never know when I’ll have a flareup of the chronic illness or how long it will last. Thus, committing to just about anything is out of the question for me. But I share in your delight and the success being a member of RRBC had brought you 🙂
I totally understand, Tina. And groups are not for everyone. I happen to have really fit in with this one and met some amazing authors. I wish you lots of good healthy days ahead!!! Thank you for stopping by.

Hi, Jan! You always have the nicest things to say about our home away from home, don’t you? One little thing as we don’t want to scare away those who may not have been referred to RRBC, you actually DO NOT need a referral to join the club. We do love it when new members list the names of our awesome members who referred them, but it’s not a requirement to join us. Just wanted to clear that up so that we don’t leave “potential” family members running scared!
Thank you, Nonnie.
Great post, Jan. RRBC has so much to offer writers, and you’ve identified some of that support. Wonderful!
Thanks, Gwen. I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment.
Fantastic post, Jan! I can’t imagine not being a member of this amazing, support community! You nailed it! 🙂
Thank you, Natalie. I agree completely!
Fabulous post about RRBC, Jan. I’ve been amazed by the support of the organization’s members. It’s definitely a club that has a lot to offer authors. I hope those reading your post will look into all the wonderful benefits and join. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner! 🙂
Thank you, Mae. It is so rare in this crazy business to find an entire group of people who want to support you. I have met some of the most amazing people through #RRBC that I would never have met otherwise – like yourself!
