During a recent chatroom meeting at RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, a certain someone (Amie O’Brien) yelled out “RATERS NOT HATERS”, and I hope you all know how hard it is to yell anything during a chatroom meeting!

Have you ever known someone that gets an idea in their heads (Nonnie Jules) and just won’t let it go? This idea rattled around a few days then RATERS NOT HATERS was born!

Well, I bet all y’all can’t guess what is being added to my resume?! If you guessed Co-Host of RATERS NOT HATERS you’d be right!





BEGINNING ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd at NOON CT, you are all invited to join us as we rate the books that we all want to read. We are some of our top readers in the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB and we post reviews on a pretty regular basis, so, who better to give our opinions?

With the internet trolls on the lose, you just can’t believe many of the reviews you read these days. I mean, these trolls are on a mission to seek and destroy the greatest of written works, just because they can. They’re not even real reviewers so we’ll just call them haters.

Enter our super trio of Reviewers! We will share the good and sometimes even our constructively informative views of a book, in hopes that it will help the author become better. No worries, though, we’re not here to tear anyone’s work down. Remember, we’re RATERS NOT HATERS!

Sound like a fun show? Have you ever (virtually) met Joy, Shirley and me? Well, you can bet your bottom dollar it will be!

About the Author


Krissy is a mother to two young children, who in turn keep her young. She lives in Dublin, Ireland but is originally from South Devon in the UK. Krissy works full time in a pharmacy and writes in her spare time, whenever the urge takes her.

She has always been interested in reading from a young age. Two years ago she was given a Kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to her. She was able to read lots of books every week and then she started to write reviews for all the books she read.

Krissy took it one step further and started her own Facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf, she intended to upload all of the reviews for the books she has read. This was purely for pleasure at that stage. She answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews and thought she had died and gone to heaven. She was reading between seven and eight books a week, the Kindle made this possible. She would read at every opportunity she could, even staying up until the small hours to finish a book. She loved it. One day she was asked to beta read a book – she loved this side of it, too. It was so exciting. She has worked with a number of indie authors and has remained loyal to a few select authors and now beta reads all their books.

After a year or more of doing this, Krissy thought maybe she could write some of the stories that were in her head and decided to write and see what happened. She wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days. She decided that this was a challenge she wanted to take and the ‘Til Death Us Do Part series was born.

Krissy always thinks of how a situation could be turned into a story and has started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to her readers.
