A to Z Challenge - F

For the A to Z Challenge, I am featuring some awesome bloggers, many of whom are participating in the Challenge. These individuals have offered so much support of my book, CassaStar, and me on my blogger journey. Of course, I’ll be keeping up with the world of movies, music, and pop culture stuff as well! Ninjas are just talented that way...

Familiar Spirits
Gail posts daily photos of her critters on the farm with a cute caption. I usually counter with a funny comment, but don’t worry - she often zings me back! Gail’s a faithful commenter and a great encourager, and you’d do well to go visit the spirits on her farm…

Falen Formulates Fiction
Sarah always opens her ponders with "In Which I..." - and you never know what's coming! Except on Friday. Yvie takes over the post then. Sarah is a trip - a fantasy writer with a wicked sense of humor. Go say hello. And don't forget Yvie!

And I know my regular followers are sick of this, but my book trailer is in another contest! You Gotta Read Videos posts a trailer a day for each month and voting runs the 21-26. Today the trailer for CassaStar is featured! If you have time to watch it now, it's only a minute long - GO HERE I'll let everyone know when voting opens on the 21. Thanks guys!

Speaking of your trailer, I've been meaning to ask: did you make it yourself? Just curious because I'm looking into making one and yours is great.

Never sick of that trailer...the more it's out there the closer to the movie deal, right?

Hey your A to Z Challenge is really loads of fun. So glad that lots of bloggers are finding out more about the alphabet.

All the best Gary.

I have been horrible with my lack of comments. Thank you for your loyalty.

Maybe my humor will return and with it Familiar Spirits.
