Hi, this is Kola. :-)

First,

I would like to say THANKS to all the people at AALBC.COM who've continued to email me with so many encouraging affirmations about my work, my self as a person, concern for my sons, and comments about missing me--the feeling is mutual.

I'm especially touched to constantly get so much email from unexpected people like...
LAMB, Latina_wi, Misty, Jackie, Bayou Nights, Nels, Renata, Gwen and Toubie.

Thank you and God bless you.

Second...

I don't own a Kindle and I don't know anyone
who does.

I truly think the "speculated" sales numbers are
inaccurate and I doubt that there's a strong
BLACK audience at this moment using Kindles...

...but nonetheless, Atlantic Kindle has just
released 3 Kola Boof titles on Amazon's new Kindle device.

One of the books ("Kola Boof Unplugged and Uncut") actually compiles RANTS that I made on AALBC.COM, letters I wrote to people that have actually become "re-mailed" Internet hits and a bunch of other stuff that might be amusing to my old supporters from here.

The releases are:

"Diary of a Lost Girl: The Autobiography of
Kola Boof"


http://www.amazon.com/Diary-Lost-Girl-Autobiography-Kola/dp/B001OQCL42/ref=sr_1_ 3?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1231449549&sr=1-3

Long Train to the Redeeming Sin (Short Stories)

http://www.amazon.com/LONG-TRAIN-REDEEMING-SIN-Stories/dp/B001OQCL38/ref=sr_1_5? ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1231450226&sr=1-5

KOLA BOOF Unplugged and Uncut: The Essential Kola Boof Anthology

http://www.amazon.com/KOLA-BOOF-Unplugged-Uncut-Essential/dp/B001OMGO76/ref=sr_1 _2?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1231450637&sr=1-2



My old publisher, Door of Kush, has disbanded, but they plan to release "Flesh and the Devil"
as a KINDLE edition by summer.

And Atlantic Kindle has rights to my poetry collection "Nile River Woman" which I think they will release when my next paper-bound poetry book comes out.


THIRD.....


Though you're not able to hear from me on this board any longer....you WILL be hearing from me in a very big way in the future.

So don't let my detractors and their gleeful announcements of my "demise" get you down.

I have always walked alone, but I have always
won.

Just because you don't see me--doesn't mean
I've gone away.

I am stronger than ever.

The ones who appreciate and care for my work--only Death could keep me from you.

That's what an artist is.

Thanks so much for your support.
