This month we are celebrating the end of the blog’s third year and our headlong rush into a fourth year.
I started the blog back on July 16, 2010. The time has flown!
This year has been the most exciting to date with the addition of dedicated reviewers and regular contributors. These new additions to the blog have made blogging even more fun for me and I hope our combined excitement and love for genre shows in the content we’re posting.
I have a number of special posts planned for the remainder of the month. We’ll be catching up with some old long-time friends of the blog and getting to know our new bloggers better. Remember the card game where eights are wild? It’s called Crazy Eights? I thought going a little wild with eight crazy questions for our bloggers would be fun, so look for those posts throughout the month. We have a new blogger to introduce, a blog tour post, author interviews and more.
I’m also attending the 2013 RWA National Convention and the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing next week. I’m hoping to do some impromptu videos and to pick-up lots of great new books. Video is not my strength, but I’m determined to give it a try. Should be fun. If any of you are planning to attend, please drop me a line and let me know! I’d love to meet up. The comment form is at the bottom of the About the Blog page.
And, oh, almost forgot. We will also have more reviews this month!
Here’s what we’ve got planned so far (subject to change):
July 15th Introducing new blogger Trina with crazy eights and her very first review for us.
July 16th RK reviews the Ragtag Fugitive Podcast.

So…stick around and be wild and crazy with us. It’s a celebration!
