#RRBC August Spotlight Author – Carol Marrs Phipps
#RRBC , #RRBCSpotlightAuthor , Book Tour / August 5, 2017

It is with great pleasure ROOM WITH BOOKS introduces CAROL MARRS PHIPPS the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB “Spotlight Author“ for the month of August! What inspired the writing of Wham! Timewalker, Book 1 of the Timewalker Series? I’d have to say, this most recent series, Timewalker, was inspired by a combination of  current world political affairs, and the increasingly insane agricultural practices being carried out today, which not only poisons the food we eat, but also the land, the waterways and the very air we breathe. How sad that in “our new world order” the air in the cities, polluted by exhaust fumes and factory emissions, is cleaner and safer than what used to be fresh country air. Enough said, it is not my intention to get on my soapbox and preach to you here, but rather, to set the background for the series. Wham is the first book of a planned dystopian/scifi-fantasy/time-travel trilogy called Timewalker. It takes place in the 21st century. This world is populated by a number of races including humans, trolls elves, fairies and even the occasional dragon. The world is controlled by a new world government, but the location of the capitol and the potentate…

The Benefits of Attending a Virtual Writers’ Conference & Book Expo – at least an #RRBC one… Reblogged from #RRBC Writers’ Conference& Book Expo Conference News & Blog , written by Nonnie Jules. You’re a writer.  You realize that there is a lot for you to learn to become a great writer…heck, even a good writer.  You’ve heard about writers’ conferences but you’ve no time to attend, you’ve no money to spare, and most of them are just too darned far.  You’ve heard that they are wonderful, though, and you’d really like to see what they’re all about, so, what do you do? Well, there is such a thing as a virtual writing conference, and below I’m going to share with you some of the benefits of attending an RRBC writers’ conference & book expo. *A virtual conference allows you to attend from the comfort of your own (living room, bedroom, bathroom, your car trunk, Starbuck’s, etc…). Writers’ conferences and book expos come a dime a dozen.  I mean…just like churches and liquor stores, there’s one around every corner.  But, with the busy lives that we lead, we often find it difficult to get away to one, so the next best thing is to…

#RRBC , Pay It Forward , Pull Up A Chair / September 19, 2016

Pull Up a Chair with Julie Watson Julie grew up in a small rural town in New Zealand. She started work in the local maternity annexe on leaving school at the age of sixteen. She met Barry and was happily married until the unexpected death of her second baby at birth. This tragic event in her life led to depression, loneliness, and despair. Life was full of challenges and it was during this time that Julie became a Christian. In her late thirties she did her training to become a nurse and a midwife fulfilling a life long dream. ‘Born for life’ tells her story and she hopes it will encourage others to follow their dreams even with life’s difficulties. Julie has travelled extensively and has worked in several countries around the world, caring for women of different cultures and nationalities. Midwifery continues to be her passion and love. If you would like to contact Julie her email address is cherryhintonlimited@gmail.com.   Her Twitter handle is @bornformidwife, and she can be found on Facebook at Julie Watson.   A nurse aide position in the local maternity annexe at the age of sixteen gave Julie a love for being with women during labour…
