Book Club Drama – Presidential Chronicles #3 – #RRBC

 Hello!  Welcome to my new series: BOOK CLUB DRAMA – PRESIDENTIAL CHRONICLES. This is just my bit of hilarity to entertain you all. The short stories that you are about to read are fictional and not at all indicative of the way I feel, as President of the phenomenal, RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB! But, some of the stories that I poke fun at, I’m sure are loosely based on some incidents…somewhere (but surely, not within the RRBC). I hope that you all will follow my blog here so that each time I post a new segment to the BOOK CLUB DRAMA – PRESIDENTIAL CHRONICLES series, you will be the first to receive notice. If they give you a chuckle, I ask that you please share them on your social media forums. Enjoy, and do keep giving me great material to write about!

P.S. Before my secretary starts receiving tons of email, “No, I am not talking about you!” LOL!

BOOK CLUB DRAMA

It’s another Monday morning around here, although the calendar on the wall reads Thursday.  Yes, the days are extra long when you preside over a book club.  At least one as drama-filled as WHERE READERS WRITE (WRW) book club.  These people never cease to amaze me (or peeve me a bit, either).

Logged on to Facebook as soon as I walked into my office today.  I didn’t expect what I saw, though.  Jeremy Hildebrandt, complaining that no one had posted a review of his book…”WHEN DONKEYZ FLY.”

“My book has been on the READ OF THE MONTH list for a full 30 days and not one stinking review yet!”  No, he didn’t think this to himself, he actually said it aloud.  Saw it with my own four eyes.  Talk about ungrateful!

So, I rally the troops on the board and share with them the news of Jeremy’s displeasure, that we have been promoting his book for a full month, yet, he hasn’t received one stinking review!

“Kill him!” Lee Jarvis shouts.  Kill him?  C’mon dude, it’s not so serious that we need to kill the guy, is it?

“I’d like to grab him by his freaking

balls ” Larrimore Gentry adds!

{You guys are brutal!}

“Maybe he’s having a bad day.  Let’s pray for him,” says Laura Cisneros.

Now, I don’t think we should kill the guy or yank him by the

balls

…but, I wouldn’t say praying is what I feel like doing to, or for him right now, either.

I mean, folks have been blasting you and your book all over social media for a full month, and the only thing that you can let flow from your mouth is “no one has given me a stinking review yet”?  WOW!

So, the TEAM does pray for dear Jeremy {but silently, my prayer was that I didn’t jump on Lee Jarvis’ band wagon}.  We ask the Lord to give us patience to not go off the deep end on this ungrateful guy, and we also ask that he gives Jeremy the patience to wait… until the members who have been supporting him heavily, have the time to post their reviews.

Now, from me, oh, he’ll get his review…but unfortunately, it’ll be…

WHEN DONKEYS FLY!

  6. I prefer to read about my donkeys in a nice meadow, under a shady tree… 😛 I guess it takes all sorts, which is why I’m still laughing. 😉

  8. Thanks,Nonnie! The guy just don’t know when to keep quiet … on the other hand how could he? There’s a saying in Afrikaans which roughly translates, “You cannot mistake a donkey’s brays for the whinnies of a thoroughbred horse!” Of course, he might only get reviews which reflect his brays, but then, what do I know? I could only keep giggling …

  9. Laughing here in Oz. Some folks just don’t own an ‘attitude of gratitude’ … and it’s freely available. The same place they sell those ‘Moral compasses’

  10. I gave him a challenge Nonnie! If I hear that he has read just two books, two full books, not the shorts, of any two RRBC member authors, I will read his book. Fair enough?!

  17. If things like “this” truly happened, it would show the ignorance of a book club member! I’m glad we don’t see things like this. LOL
