From the Booking Desk:

Today is the First Blogoversary for BOLO Books.  That’s right folks, BOLO Books is One Year Old Today!

It is hard to believe that it has already been a year; and yet in many ways it also feels as though I have been doing this my whole life.  So much has happened since I started the blog, but the most important thing is that a community of writers and fans I already admired and respected opened their arms to me and welcomed BOLO Books as a part of their family.  I would like to thank:

  • All of the authors who wrote such fabulous books for me to review
  • Those authors that agreed to allow me to interview them for my fledgling blog
  • All the readers who embraced my goal of writing positive, non-spoilery reviews
  • The other book bloggers who encouraged and answered questions at every stage
  • The publishers and publicists who reached out to the blog with such kind words
  • The conference organizers who allowed me to express myself on their panels
  • The independent bookstores that asked me to participate in their events

And last but never least,

  • My family and friends who support me at every turn in life
