The Boatman’s Books

jboog1.jpg Good morning, GalleyCat.

This is Jason Boog, the newest reporter on this excellent blog. For the last three years I’ve curated a little site called The Publishing Spot, and it is a real honor to join the MediaBistro family.

I’ve been a freelance journalist in New York City since 2003, writing for The Believer, Peace Corps Writers, and The Revealer. You can read more at my personal website.

At GalleyCat, I’ll be chasing book news and shooting video stories. If you have any tips, ideas, or need a rowboat captain, email me.
