HOW TO FLY  ~ 100 BY? 
100 THANK*YOUS ...

~ from *AT THE BIJOU*
by ~ Absolutely*Kate

 

Yes, we hit 100! 100 wonderful followers of writing under the lighting of our kliegs and spots. Of who's cool. Of what's hot. You who have ambled in our majestic mahoghany double doors, plopped your splendiferous fannies ceremoniously into lush red velvet BIJOU seats have favoured and savoured clever writing, insightful plotting, fiction flashes, noir which dashes, and prose that goes lingering . . .  sometimes upon the soul.
    

Yes, that's all AT THE BIJOU, where the popcorn pops and the Milk Duds never are ~ duds. Dudes and dandies, molls with brandies, ladies and gents and shadows on streetcorners not dubbed Desire have graced our stage and paced our breathing alongside hordes of returning audiences . . . to read, to feel, to zeal ~ what YOU, stellar authors of HARBINGER*33, of #Friday Flash Fiction, of writing sites and try-out delights have to show by showing up on our showcase. Gosh ~ we're not even a year old AT THE BIJOU and you've come and come and come again and the stories -- oh how your stories show their glories!
 
Best way to ennoble honoured gratitude is to turn our ever glitterin' spotlights on the very best o'the zest (and jest) AT THE BIJOU presents . . . 
 

~ 100 Starring Followers FOLLOW ~


Click 'em. Read their stories
Multitudes play here, time and tiempo again  

 

And that's why
AT THE BIJOU
  is the razzamatazz it is!

"Thanks a million,
 first 100!"

 
The Pleasure's so mine and yours 
and almost a quarter of a million readers more,

Congrats and the lineup of authors you've had is immpressive!

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

Considering YOU are one of these colourful characters Ms Laura ~ how could it be otherwise?

(And that's just Authoring from our first-100 FOLLOWERS -- Get a gander in the sidebar-tags at the preponderance of On Stage under-the-spotlights AUTHORS' talents AT THE BIJOU proudly has!)

THANKS again Lady E - I think you're due to show'off your good stuff again - don't ya think? ~ Absolutely*Kate

Harry said...

That's quite a roster of talent and a hugh amassing of content in one years time Katie*Girl. Congratulations on At the Bijou's success!

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

HEY HAR ~ It's not even a full year yet! And no way, no how could it have been done without your zings to the zigs and zags along the way.

Thank*you so much, and now you know what I was doing to get back in the swing of things most of this day -- thankin' folks who matter.

'Bout time we finally did powow again on that murder mystery matinee classic - what's it called? Oh yeah - THE PRINTS AND THE POPPER. ~ K*G ;-)

Jeanette Cheezum said...

Quite the milestone and quite the impressive lineup at the Bijou. I'm proud to be The Goddess Mother to Brilliant Authors.Glad to see you back at the helm.

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

Oh JEANETTE ~ Takes a special kinda *spark* to make a theatre of the writers' mind joint like AT THE BIJOU grow and glow. YOU dear Lady are so much of that to all of us.

This is nothing but a grand group success of celebrating each other's talents on the rise. As for being back at the helm, took a lot of goodness to help me along the way. True, I've been hurtin', but as my Dad taught by example ~ our true worth is measured by the calibre of the great people we have in our world.

I got witty writers and big hearts in mine! Thanks GMOBA ... Absolutely*Kate

Bukowski's Basement said...

CONGRATS!! That's one mighty fine stable...

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

Spoken true,
like a man with good horse-sense would do.

Thanks Ant, for being such a talented part of us all ... and always keepin' the good hootch on the top shelf ready for the rowdiest after hours crowd.

~ Absolutely*Kate

Kevin Michaels said...

Nice lineup of talent and followers (and as noted by my fellow scribes, incredible that it's been done in under one year). Congrats on some great steps AND for providing a home where words can be seen and voices heard (and in Mr. Michaels' neighborhood - vices, violence, and bloodshed shared...).

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

My dear Mr Vice, er... Mr Violence ... I mean Mr Michaels of bloodshed shared and things that go anguishing in the night ~

My thanks a hundred times for all the great writes YOU have debuted or brought back to how the house was packin' it in to view you the more ~ the man, the message, the murders ... whoops, there I go giving away all your plot summaries, huh?

Gratitude for your support and KNOW I'M IN ALL GREAT WRITERS PROMOTIONAL-PUBLISHING HARBOURS as we sail not only Harbinger*33 but each of the e-books and chapbooks and soft books and hard books that all this AT THE BIJOU talent is churning, turning, yearning out. Why - you have a book we'll be rising the sails on soon, don't you Mr KM?

Yep! Less than a year! Borrowing from Bob Browning ~

"Grow along with me.
The Best is Yet to Be."

^ That's been my lifelong motto.
~ Absolutely*Kate

estrella05azul said...

Congrats Kate, your blog and list of authors is amazing and it's just the followers :)
Plus I'm all *blushing* at the sight of my name, my dear ;)

Hugs! Here's for another few hundred!

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

Oh Estrella, be the star you are and let the blushes roll. We've got a klieg light all ready for the tale you wish to tell ... up on the stage AT THE BIJOU ... where the shows must glow on.

Speaking of *glow* ~ my gratitude's on to your kind congrats -- Know though it's for all of us! The first 100 faithful followers and over a quarter of a million reads. I hear we've sold a mountain of popcorn and the Sugar sales on Milk Duds hit sweet heights.

C'mon dear Estrella ~ We want to make you more a star than you are!

~ Absolutely*Kate
and our fine staff of renown

Paul D. Brazill said...

Congratulations. Glad to be part of the gang!

ABSOLUTELY*KATE ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ said...

Nazdrowie Paul! When the gang all gathers, it's like a pub where you're pouring forth the more -- that's how AT THE BIJOU feels.

So how long have I known you now? Seems like a mighty good forever. ~ Absolutely*Kate
