From the Booking Desk:
Can you believe that today marks the start of the third year of this blog? In many ways, it seems like I just started it and in many other ways, it feels like I have been around here forever.
I can’t begin to explain all the wonderful things that running this blog has brought to my life, but the most important thing is that a community of writers and fans I admire and respect so very much accepted me as one of their own. So many people have opened their arms to me and welcomed BOLO Books as a part of their family.
I could rattle off the professional opportunities founding this blog has provided – things like monitoring panels, interviewing authors, and writing for magazines, but really the part that is invaluable is the connections BOLO Books has allowed me to make with other people. From authors to fans, editors to publicists, booksellers to bloggers – having you as part of my life makes this journey so much damn fun.
I hope that along the way, I have guided you to some quality reading material. I never lose sight of the fact that what I am doing is a very subjective project – it really is only my opinion. And it means so much to me that folks seems to truly enjoy the blog. I continue to hope that I can meet more and more of you in person at various events. As long as BOLO Books continues to attract fans – and the numbers bear out that we continue to grow every year – I will be here doing what I do.
Thank you! And as always, thank you to my family and friends who provide the support system necessary for everything I do, not just BOLO Books.
Onward to more reviews, interviews, conferences and connections.
Happy Anniversary!! I can’t believe it has been three years. Your dedication to the blog and insight continue to inspire me. Also, you have definitely met your goal of introducing at least one reader to some new books. Congratulations, and may you continue to find success!
Thanks K. I am so glad that you have found some great books because of the blog. And thank you for the support.
Happy birthday, Bolo and good wishes for the years ahead!
Thank you Frances, I appreciate the support over the years.
Happy Anniversary, Kristopher! You have accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, my friend. Your blog and you are both awesome, and I’m so happy that I can count you as friend. You’ve also been a great mentor for me, and made my house even more overrun from books than it was. It’s easy to see that you will continue to have much success in the book world.
Thanks so much Kathy. It was lovely to hang out a bit in Raleigh and we’ll do the same in NOLA. Happy to help in any way I can.
Kris, three years and going strong. SO PROUD! I’m sure the best is yet to come.
Thanks! It’s been fun and thank you again for a killer eyeball logo – the best branding out there.
I agree – best logo out there! Congratulations Chris. I love reading your blog and have found some wonderful books because of it. Keep up the great reviews.
Oops… sorry about that Kris. My son is “Chris” so the spelling is automatic.
No problem Leslie, happens all the time. So glad that you are enjoying the content here at BOLO Books. You have been a supporter from very early on and I appreciate it.
