Announcing the Rave Reviews Writers’ Conference and Book Expo #RRBC

Hey, gang! If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you know I’m a member of the Rave Reviews Book Club, RRBC for short. I’ve written several posts in the past about this great community of indie and small press authors that have banned together to support each other through social media, networking and reviews. I’m coming up on a year membership renewal and I’m looking to another great year with RRBC. If you’re not familiar with how the book club works, please see my post Let’s Talk Book Clubs which is RRBC wrapped up in a nutshell.

What I really want to share with you today is something that RRBC founder, Nonnie Jules, and many dedicated members have been hard at work organizing—The Rave Reviews Writers’ Conference and Book Expo, taking place December 1-3, 2016.

Now before you start saying “Oh, I’d love to attend, but I’m not a member,” or “I’d love to attend but I’m sure it will be too far for me to travel,” you need to know two important facts:

  1. The RRBC Writer’s Conference and Book Expo IS OPEN TO EVERYONE! That’s right, you don’t have to be a member to attend, and,
  1. RRBC is hosting a virtual conference, so there’s no need to worry about expensive plane tickets, putting miles on your car, or dumpy hotel rooms.

What goodies can you expect? Check out this fabulous list:
Visit author booths
Attend conference sessions and workshops
Browse books for sale
Mingle and network with other writers and readers
Visit vendor booths
Have fun, enjoy yourself and learn at the same time

Some of the sessions being offered include:

There’s even a free bonus session on cover design! So grab your laptop, tablet, computer or smart phone and join in.

    • YAY! Jacquie, it’s an awesome group. You’re going to love it. I even had one of my novels featured as a Book of the Month club read last May and picked up a bunch of reviews. So glad you’ve joined! 😀

    • I’m sure it’s going to be awesome, Soooz. I haven’t been involved in any of the behind-the-scenes stuff, but I know a lot of members put a lot of hard work into making this conference something special!

      • These folks really do give of themselves and their time. I have never met a more supportive and proactive group of like minded people. See you there!

      • Hope you have fun, Sooz! I’m not able to attend but I’m happy to spread the word. I’ll be looking for posts about all the fun afterward. And you are so right about RRBC being supportive and proactive. It’s a great group of people!

  1. Woo-hoo! Thanks for the heads’-up, Mae. I’ll have to sign up. I’ve been following so many great writers who are members, and I’ve see how much RRBC can help writers. I want to be part of the group 😀 And I’ll have to check out the conference. Thanks for sharing this!

    • Thanks, Kev. I understand completely and fit things in were I can. The great thing about the club is there’s always someone out there promoting, and I know you do a lot of reblogging for RRBC which gives them great exposure!

    • RRBC is always cooking something up, Teri. I’m sure there will be plenty of other opportunities. I actually have to miss this one myself, but wanted to spread the word.

  2. Thanks, Mae.

    As you can see from the date of this e-mail, I’ve been woefully behind in keeping up with your blog, and in attending to the promotion of my book in general. Life gets in the way!

    However, on January 1, I will begin semi-retirement by cutting down my hours. This means I will have all afternoons free–from about 1 p.m. or so. My plan is to do another NaNoWriMo for the month of January, and come up with a sequel to The Delusion. I’ve learned a lot from the first experience, so that maybe it won’t take two years of editing from rough draft to CreateSpace.

    I’m going back now to your post and the membership link at the bottom to get into RRBC.

    Thanks for your continued help.

    • Congrats on the semi-retirement, Hank. That should definitely free up some more time for writing.
      I’m excited to learn there will be a sequel to The Delusion. I can’t wait to see where you go with it.
      And RRBC has been wonderful to me. I hope you find it as beneficial as I have!
