The Diamond Book Award

IMG_20160317_1357361_rewindAt the end of each year I will present the Diamond Book Award, exclusive to Raves & Reviews. The award is an actual physical award in the form of a diamond-shaped crystal paperweight engraved with: R & R Best Book Award 20– and comes in a gift box.

The book chosen will be selected from the top five books entered in the competition. The top five nominations will be presented to my panel of judges who will vote for the best book. The winning author is then notified, the award sent to them, and an acknowledgement posted as recipient of the award.

If you are confident that your book will merit a four or five-star review and are interested in entering your book for this award, you will need to “gift me” a copy of your book through kindle. (No mobi, epub, pdf or word files will be accepted.) I will, however, accept a hard copy through the mail. Your book must be recent. (Published within the last 12 months)

For more information and to register your interest please visit: Diamond Book Award.

Musings through the journey of writing my first novel

Terry Ibele

Not a published author yet, but chipping away at that dream every day. Sharing what I learn along the way.


An introverted, twenty-something, author of 'Love Is A Place' -- written in the style of what she calls introvertisms -- discusses the twisted-melancholic truths of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. This is a space to bring awareness to these issues, spark conversations and inspire courage in those who need it.
