Hi Everyone:

I have been doing alot of thinking about our ARR Program and decided to expand our program to reach more members on goodreads by bringing our ARR Program to them.

I have asked Basically Books! if I could start posting our ARR Books in their group and they agree this would be a fabulous idea.

So what is going to happen is twice a week I will post a different books to get your books read and reviewed. Of course this is all by choice if you dont' want your book listed in either groups I totally understand.

The nexus group is part of making connections and we are still new working on getting member so everyone go sign up over there lol. But I figure with both groups running the ARR program we will get some of our books read and reviewed.

This section is for authors already signed up in the ARR Program.

message 50: by Chris (new)

Chris Rakunas | 9 comments I would love to be included in this program as well. My first book, Tears for the Mountain is a non-fiction book about a medical mission trip to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake there. It chronicles a team tasked with the delivery of 20,000 pounds of medical supplies to area hospitals who encounters gangs of roving bandits, heart wrenching stories of survival, and a notorious Haitian warlord. A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit the orphanage in Port-au-Prince where the team was based.

Watch the trailer for the book here.

Sign up for the book giveaway here.

Watch a CBS news report about the book here.

My first novel, The 8th Doll, will be released 31 July. Pulling together elements from Mayan architecture and culture, it is a fast paced story of a murder investigation that is tied to the 2012 Mayan apocalyptic prophecy.
