Authors/Bloggers Rainbow Support Club

bloggers

Welcome, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the latest members of my Author/Bloggers Rainbow Support Club.

The Rainbow Support Club endeavours to provide a friendly and welcoming community of like-minded bloggers, book reviewers and authors who support each other in every which way we can to promote and nurture our love of books, and writing.

First up to Team Awesome is Colleen Chesebro. Colleen is a totally supportive angel, and I’d like to nominate her as person extraordinaire of the club! I can vouch for Colleen’s  worthiness, and angelic qualities as she is currently helping me with my manuscript – The Curse of Time – and doing an amazing job. 🙂 Author, Colleen Chesebro has recently released her first book: The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy, which I had the delight of reading and reviewing recently:  My 5 * Review of The Heartstone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy by Colleen Chesebro. She has an awesome blog which I strongly advise you to follow:  https://colleenchesebro.com/. Colleen and I have become great friends and have discovered that we have a  wealth of shared interests.  I enjoy joining in with her weekly Tanka Challenge so much:  https://colleenchesebro.com/category/tanka-tuesday/.

Colleen is happy to help other authors by sharing their writing, editing, etc, and also will support them with posts about new book releases. In other words, if these lovely peeps write about writing, she will gladly take guest posts from them.  Colleen strongly believes that writing about your own experiences helps other authors learn.

Colleen is an experienced book reviewer, but due to her huge TBR pile she is unable to take on any further reviews at present but her reviews to date are accessible via this link: Colleen Chesebro Reviews. Colleen shares lots of interesting and informative material under the heading: Authors Supporting Authors, and also has a second blog: A Mindful Journey which is full of tips about weight loss, and balance in life so do investigate to find out more.

Karen Oberlaender is my next member, Karen is a dedicated reader and book blogger who blogs at: My Train of Thoughts On. Karen writes about her favourite quotes, the word of the day, ten statements from authors and has a section where you can add your book review blog to her website: Add Your Blog – Book Reviewers

Her personal motto is:

Smile! Don’t look back in anger.

Great motto!

Her first book –   ‘In a Small Compass, Vol. 1’ comprises 15 contemporary short fiction stories with paranormal streaks which take you on a journey to Boston, Dublin, Dundrum, Galway, Heidelberg, London, Munich, Nuremberg, Skerries, and other places.

In a Small Compass, Vol. 1 is currently available on Smashwords:

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  8. Such a great idea. I try to support as many authors as I can and it’s heartwarming to see other groups doing the same. #YouRock I’d be happy to mention your blog on my page. It’s lizziechantree.com I’m thinking of adding a page for blogs that love books and give authors a helping hand.

    Hi Marje, Thanks for commenting on Hugh’s interview. I wanted to check out your blog. It looks like you are a major part of my the group of new friends I have discovered recently, including Tina, Debby, Sally, and most recently, Colleen. I post book reviews on Thursdays. I’m always looking for good reviews that will help the support the community of book reviewers. When I first started blogging, I noticed that often book reviews did not get the attention they needed for the amount of time they took to write them. Things have changed a lot in the blogging world since I started, and most people know more about publicizing their work and collaborating and sharing their blogs, so book reviews are getting more of the attention they deserve. Nonetheless, I still like to publish reviews other than my own as I find them. Let me know if you have some that you would like republished on Always Write. I always give credit to the reviewer with lots of links. Thanks, Marsha 🙂

  14. Marje, it’s a truly marvelous idea. I know Colleen has been a paragon of support to me, particularly on Facebook — where I have so little time or energy. I can see that you have that talent as well. Mega hugs all around to you and the entire team.
