Ron Knight’s Top 100 Authors on Facebook! 2012

There is one simple rule to making this list…I have to remember seeing you on Facebook among the 8,000 authors that I connect with each day. If I remember you…then so will your target audience. And do not be discouraged if you did not make this list. However, I hope to see you next year.

If you did make this list, feel very proud. Share this moment with your friends and brag about yourself…you deserve it!

  1. Thank you, Ron, for an honor I absolutely do not deserve.

    My goal as an author is to use whatever influence my words may begin to have in order to expose the excellence of my brother/sister writers. Let’s all do something for each other at least once a day, and may the world be better for what we write.

  2. Thank you Ron (Great first name) for including me on this list. It really is an honor to be here. 2013 will bring exciting things at Rey Books!
    See you there!

  6. JB Richards says:

    Thank you for being such a wonderful support vehicle to us, the newest authors among the pack. It is so encouraging to find that experienced, widely-published authors such as yourself are willing to give aspiring authors a leg up!

    Currently, I am in the process of writing a series of five historical fiction novels about the romantic relationship Jesus (Yeshua) and Mary Magdalene (Miriamne) which will eventually span about 125 years between 50BC and 75CE, and will include the missing years of Yeshua as husband to Miriamne and father to Yehuda Thomas and Sarah, and his legacy to his children and disciples.

    You can find out more about upcoming novels at my Facebook page below. I hope to publish the first novel in 2014, but one of my short-term goals is to be on this list next year.

    Again, thank you for supporting and encouraging us all!
    JB Richards, Author
