About Nicole Morgan

Top Five Bloggers for the Month

Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten, but is not
counted, in order to focus on guests. The winners are judged by cumulative page
views, including return and unique visits. 
1 Nicole Morgan
2 Jacquie Biggar
3 Anni Fife
4 Errin Stevens
5 Eleanor Webster
Honorable mention: Hannah
Meredith

Top Chatters for the Month

Because the person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the
person who gets the most page views per month, I instituted the Top Chatter Award.
This is the award for the person who receives the most comments. To win, a guest
must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author’s). There can be
up to three winners.
This month’s winner’s are:
1 Kristina Knight, Nicole Morgan (tie)
2 Hannah Meredith, Jacquie Biggar (tie)
3 NJ Walters

Be a Guest Author

Romance Lives Forever now uses Signup Genius to schedule
guests.
The system also reminds authors of their visit. One post is available
each day. If you choose a date, no one else will be able to take that date, so
please make a note of it in your own calendar as well. You can sign up for more
than one visit; however, the visits must be in different months.
January – April
March – June
July – September
October – December

My thanks to all who took part this month. You made Romance Lives
Forever a great place to discover new books and authors.
