Hey 3.5 readers.
Bookshelf Q. Battler here.
Yup. Three years ago this month, while I was stuffing a burrito into my face hole in a Taco Bell parking lot, the idea to create this amazing blog was born.
In its first year, there was an attempt to be semi-serious and focus on literary discussions.
In year two, it went off the wall with revelations about my magic bookshelf, my hatred of yetis, my best friend Alien Jones, my better half Video Game Rack Fighter, and all the other assorted weirdoes that traipse through BQB HQ on a regular basis.
In year three, I focused on novel production. I did get a rough draft of a novel finished but I made it so epic in scale that I feel like it will be a lot of work to get it ready and perhaps two more novels could be added that would come before it.
Alas, they’re on the shelf right now (I swear I’ll return to them) and as we enter year four, I have developed a book cover purchasing addiction. Don’t worry, it is under control, but I feel like it just makes good fiscal sense to write and publish BQB’s Writing Prompts, Zom Fu, Toilet Gator and Zomcation first.
Believe it or not, there’s actually light at the end of the tunnel for BQB’s Writing Prompts. It’s definite that will get published this year. As for the rest, I’ll work as hard as I can, but alas, I’m not in my twenty year old days where I could just drink a Red Bull and go 24 hours on a project and wake up the next day fresh as a daisy.
In conclusion, I’d like to share a little song I wrote for you:
Thank you for being a friend, 3.5 readers. You’ve traveled down the road and back again. Your hearts are true. You are my pals and my confidants. And if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say, “Thank you for being a friend.”
Oh wait. My attorney informs me I did not write that. That is, in fact, the theme to the Golden Girls.
Oh well. Thank you for being my 3.5 friends anyway.
