Recently, I was looking for a review that I had done a while ago when I realized something. I have been active for a YEAR!!! I started this blog in 2011, a year after I lost my daughter. I thought I would use it as an outlet but never really did anything with it.

A little over a year later, I was selected to be a part of an amazing group of woman that reviewed for Avon Publishing. I had officially become an Avon Addict. I decided to do my reviews on the blog that I had created. I figured it would give me somewhere to post them. In November, those same awesome women convinced me to do National Novel Writing Month. While doing that I got introduced to blog tours and my little tiny insignificant blog started doing a little more. I went from 3 followers a year ago to thousands on multiple sites. Who knew anyone would like what I had to say? 😀

I have met some of the most amazing readers, authors and blogger in the world and I am honored to be a part of their world. So in sticking with anniversary tradition, I am doing a giveaway. I am looking for donations of any kind from anyone. Authors, bloggers and readers are welcome to join in. You can sign up here.

Also, I am looking to put together a master list of emails and names. This will be used for a newsletter that I want to put together for the blog and my books. If you are interested, you can sign up here. Keep in mind this is for my use only and will not be sold or distributed to anyone else.

I want to give a special shoutout to Jena over at PureTextuality. She has been an amazing behind the scenes person. She helped me build RBW (literally, she is the theme genuis) and never hesitates to answer any off the wall question that I come up with.

Thank you to all of the amazing people that have supported and continue to support RBW!



P.S. I am looking for someone who would like to become an admin on the blog. Familiarity with WordPress is a plus. If interested or have any questions, shoot me an email to
